Best Rigs

This is such a good live bait rig, especially when barracuda are found in a little deeper water.

A simple bobber and lively bait fish will work great when barracuda are in the shallows.

The drop shot rig works great as you can bounce from shallower water to deeper water very easily with the drop shot rig.  Since barracuda can easily be found in many different areas, this rig gives you more flexibility than some other rigs.

A simple jighead and live bait or soft plastic is a great way to catch barracuda.

When barracuda are in the shallows or feeding higher up in the water column, a weightless rig is a great way to present a lively bait fish to them.
