Default Barracuda collides with child's arm!

Came across these pictures on another site.

No way I could look that nonchalant knowing my child just sustained an injury like this.

Pic of dad holding fish up next to her. Priceless.

Dad of the year. What a maroon.

That looks pretty deep, not sure I would be worried about a photo op before getting my kid to a medical professional. That's gonna need more than a band-aid. She looks horrified in that last pic, like, "DAD, WTH are we taking a picture for, get me to the hospital!"

Old but yes all comments are correct. How do you stop the bleeding from a Cuda bite?

You must not understand... It is my understanding that their teeth have an anti coagulation substance on them

Yes sir! A girl was bitten when we were in Puerto Rico on the bio bay. Jumped clean out of the water as most fish were doing when they got spooked. Hit her in the same place as the one seen above. Literally bleed for hrs. Not dangerous amount of blood loss but would not "scab up"

Hooked up on one of those bad boys for the first time last year. My SIL and myself have limited experience with fish that size. Also onboard was his dad-zero experience, and two of my grandsons.

I took one look at those teeth and said. No way that fish is coming onboard, so we cut him loose.

Hard to imagine. Damn things are everywhere down here. This was done by a shark but I've had cuda do the same.

We were sitting off the beach in Bimini many moon ago.... Just playing around diving for lobster and had a few rods in the water......... A huge Cuda slammed one of the bait and started to greyhound all over the place.... Last jump was at full speed right into the cockpit of the boat ---- knocked 2 of us down and ripped open one guys arm very similar to those pictures...... Crazy bastards those cuda ...

Maybe they should be called, "devil fish" instead.��

That is truly fascinating about thier saliva! Why, is what I'm wondering. Why would nature morph a fishes saliva to create large amounts of continued blood in the water to only attract more predators....makes no sense. The reverse would make better sense I would think. Save the entire meal for himself!

I was spearfishing in 80' of water out in the gulf one time and shot about a 26" mackerel when one came out of nowhere and bit clean the back half of the fish as I was pulling him towards me! Then he turned and came back to finish it. Just left the head and it all happened in 45 seconds! I about soiled myself!
