Hi raiders

i was fishing at port Kembla the other day and caught this fish below

 

can anyone identify it? I initially thought it was a pike based on the teeth and the body

Cheers

Jimmy

As Noelm has suggested, Barracouta, or Couta for short.

Sharp teeth, have seen them have a go at my sinkers on the way up, lost lots of tackle to them over the years.

thanks guys

upon thorough search Through fishraider for barracuta it seems these are not too good to eat

I did eat a Barry Couta  once. A mate and I caught some tailor, and a couple of larger Barry's.

Kept one and cut off the fillets. Smoked the fillets in a smoke box with the tailor fillets. It was fairly edible but very bony. First and last time I ate one. The tailor were pretty good eating.
