My son and I were fishing off Key West a few years ago.Mike hooked a good sized barracuda,that immediately began to empty his reel. All of a sudden the line slacked and the silver flash headed back towards the boat. Mike was reeling as hard as he could to take up the slack when the fish went under the boat and the line once again tightened up. The next sight we saw was a glistening silver slab overhead as the fish came out of the water,did a couple of flips over our heads and landed in the water. I cut the line we packed up and went home shaking our heads. Its one of those sights you never forget.
