Barracuda, Great (Barracutta, Spit Sinnet, Guachanche Pelon, etc.): Caught with the same outfit as used for Tarpon, on the surface, trolling with squid bait, or still fishing with mullet or other small fishes. Measures up to six feet. Ranges from Brazil northward through the West Indies to Pensacola, Charleston and the Bermudas. There are several smaller species—one is two feet in length, in the Gulf of Mexico southward to Panama; another of two feet in length with the same distribution as the great Barracuda, but occasionally found as far north as Wood's Hole, Cape Cod, in Nantucket Sound; another, eighteen inches in length, found from Bahia northward to the West Indies; another a foot and a half in length, the northern Barracuda, common on the Atlantic Coast from Cape Fear to Cape Cod, and the California Barracuda, of four and five feet in length, found on the Pacific Coast from San Francisco to Cape San Lucas, very commonly so among the Santa Barbara Islands. See "California Fishing."
