'Cuda in Carolina

Record #:
Found off the coast of North Carolina, the feared barracuda generally haunt the wreckage of ships. Many of the wrecks are old blockade runners sunk during the War Between the States, others more recent wrecks, such as the petroleum tanker Esso Nashville, sunk by a German U-boat during World War II. Sports fishermen enjoy the aggressive, energetic movements of the barracuda as they skip bait across the water, catching specimens at times weighing more than forty pounds.
