Description: There are two things to look for when choosing an effective barracuda lure for your trolling arsenal- bright, flashy colors and durability. The “Pretty in Pink” trolling lure has both of these characteristics, and is proven to be irresistible to barracuda and durable enough to withstand countless vicious strikes from cudas. This 4″ weighted trolling skirt features a holographic epoxy glitter head, holographic eye, and 3 types of durable synthetic hair designed for saltwater use and abuse. When fished in front of a natural trolling bait such as a ballyhoo or strip bait, this is one of the best lures for barracuda available on the market today.
Trolling Methods: This is one of the best barracuda lures when trolled on the surface at speeds of 2-6 knots. This barracuda bait can also be effective when fished deeper in conjunction with a downrigger or planer at the same speeds.
Tips On Barracuda Fishing: Barracuda can be found around reefs and inshore waters in most tropical regions around the world. Understanding their feeding areas is one of the most important steps for anglers looking to hook into these toothy gamefish. Larger barracuda tend to hang around the edges of large reefs in 60-150 feet depths. When fishing these areas, use a downrigger or planer to get your baits deep over the reef to where the barracuda prefer to feed. Smaller barracuda tend to hang around sandy areas and flats along inshore waters in depths from 3-15 feet. In these areas the barracuda should be targeted by trolling lures along the surface at slow speeds. The best lures for barracuda are only effective when trolled properly through these areas.
