We leave very early towards the area of "KUNK DJABAR" off DAKAR at 60km. The water is clear and the current very strong. From the first apnea, I get a first giant Barracuda. During a new descent in constant weight at 25m, I reel in a very good fish that we will bring back to the boat. A big fight that will mark me all my life. Video : shooting : 10mn10 weigh : 18mn55 additional statement:: Bonjour, Suite a la capture du barracuda et au vue du danger que représente ce poisson une fois le barracuda arrivée en surface, j’ai ramener le fil au piroguier qui n’a eu qu’a remonté le poisson sur le bateau pour le tuer. La prise c’est fait seul mais sur surveillance de mes deux témoins. Pour faire valoir ce que de droit. Following the capture of the barracuda and in view of the danger represented by this fish once the barracuda arrived on the surface, I brought the line to the boatman who only had to put the fish back on the boat to kill it. The catch is done alone but under the supervision of my two witnesses. To assert what is right. Kings regards Stéphane DUDON
