Biting Off More Than I Could Chew

Early morning on Lee Point.

I had just settled into the kayak when my handline started unravelling on the kayak deck.

Australian barracuda Sphyraena novaehollandiae

When I brought up this fellow it wasn't hard to see it would make things a bit too cosy in the narrow confines I fish in. Since it was also decidedly green, I towed it to shore with handline and paddle in hand, while it thrashed around and made several attempts to escape. I managed to remove the popper and get it back into the water as quick as possible.
