I can't catch a barracuda, they follow the lure and don't bite.

retreive the lure faster and give it uneven jerks...... ex. tick tick and reel.....tick tick and reel .... tick tick and reel ........ every 'tick' is a light jerk to the tip of the rod..... thus your lure darts up down left right as though its a fish under distress trying to escape Wink

Here is something u can try, when u go spinning take 2 rods, a hand line with a splitshot and a size 14 hook, 2 slices bread, some groundbait for mullets.
When u arrive on the spot trow some of the mullet mix next to the jetty or wherever your fishing, wet the bread and work it out, use it as bait for the hand line, by this time there should be some small fish swimming next to you searching for more food, usually either vopi, bubin or griewel around 5cm, catch a couple and keep them alive, set 1 of the rods with a 1mtr .25 fluoro and a not very big hook ( I like to use a size 2 owner cutting point ) add one of those floats that fill up with water and fill it up so it will be a bit heavy and the fish will not swim around with it. When you hook the bait fish it is important that you hook it from the rear (just behind the tail) for some reason this will make it swim downwords most of the time. Now here is where the spinning part comes in, spin as usual and get the lure to pass near the live bait. The cudas that will follow the lure will mark the live fish from 2 mtrs away and sprint to it like maniacs, if the fish are small enough they will not bother to bite it they will just swollow it whole. I guarantee that from every 2 followups u'll have 1 of them that will take the bait without thinking twice about it.

Fish dont really care where the lure is made or the price, but the moment of truth comes when you hook a fish of a lifetime and end up only landing the front-ring. In my case the lure had come apart Sad

some more details ejjaa.... seems like an interesting story!!

you surely did not hook a barracuda Tongue I know the type of fish that can break a ring, but they can break anything believe me, this winter i broke an overhead reel from the butt (yes i tightened the drag but I had to)... however i got it replaced (under warranty) Tongue

it really depends what you buy, yes, but it is really not necessary to spend a fortune on lures that in the best cases will be scratched from bites or lost during fights Smiley

I just started spinning and I've been going for a week now. tried some different places in the northern area but no bites and no follow ups. maybe its the wind or the time of year. I'll keep trying maybe one day I'll be lucky Cheesy

Still getting a few respectable hits down south. Kevin what lures are you using? Lots of follow ups and no hits means there is some small detail which is wrong.

line? Leader? Swivles? Lures?  what are you using?

i have to ask this so that i can confirm if a lure that i am going to use is good. i found a black rapala lure in one of my dads fishing boxes which is jointed and has a metal part in front. i tried to see how it swims, when you retrieve it, it swims downwards but its not weighted. is good for spinning from shore? i'm asking because my dad fishes on his boat with it.

what you have is probably a split magnum rapala...... do not use it in shallow places.......... as you said it is ideally used on a boat mate. it would be good at places like qbajjar in gozo or wied iz zurrieq etc.......

I would instead use something slender, that is one piece. That's what most of the catches are being reported on.  Obviously I would recommend a Mommotti or a Finder Jerk Cheesy but I am kind of biased hehehe ... there are other very good lures on the Market, the Daiwa Shoreline Shiner SL17, or the Maria Chase SW just to mention 2 others.

@KevinG .... yeah that setup sounds fine, give the baits lots of jerking motions it gets the fish excited, and rotate lures. Select 3 lures that have the same sort of action but different colour, then just swap them every 5 or 8 casts .... it will send the Barracuda crazy at one point, but jerk them like a mad man, don't just retrieve.

When swimming in the marfa region last weekend and i spotted two lone barracudas stalking the area with my goggles( bil-maskra). HAs anyone ever caught any decent barracuda there, cause come summer and the end of exams will be spending most of my time at marfa. I'm interested in spinning and  would like to know my chances at spinning at mtarfa. Has anyone caught anything decent spinning at mtarfa?
