Reach jetty around 7.15pm. Tide was midway up with strong current below. First cast out was force to wind back as someone missed cast and cross over my line then pull my back my rig when he wind back his line. Bait was lasting so I re-bait and re-cast out. Not long after casting, I saw my line was carried away by the current flow. I knew something was no right as it could be a small hookup or was entangle by big rubbish. I decide to check and wind back my line. It was heavy but no any struggling. Thought it was rubbish until when it was about to surface that there is some struggling at the end. It turn out to be a barracuda on the line. I used my hand to grab on my leader and pull it up. It weight 2.5kg on the scale. The fish was cut up to two and I share it with my friend.
