    Almost certain it’s some sort of barracuda, but I’m having a hard time pinpointing which species.
    Any thoughts?
    Am I incorrect in thinking it’s a barracuda in the first place?
    Would I do better to post this in the fish forum?

    I would think more in the lines of a musky or pike
    The teeth and jaws don’t match that of a barracuda

    It may be a pike or musky

    Indeed, it seems to be a pike. Thanks!

    I bet that would have left a mark.
