Postcard: Bermuda barracuda

The barracuda, a long, sinister-looking fish commonly found in warm ocean water, meets its demise when its predator instinct lures it into biting a bait fish with a large hook inside it. Such was the case for these five fellas during a deep-sea fishing trip off the south coast of Bermuda this week. JR Bean, who captains Paradise One, sliced them into filets shortly after returning to land. As he did so, an old-timer walked by and began chatting up a tourist. “Every day is a good day above ground,” the Bermudian said, “but when you get out on the water, it’s better. You get away from all this madness, all this stress.” Man’s gain is the barracuda’s loss, I suppose.
