bleeding fish
« on: June 08, 2019, 04:02:31 PM »
I read an article about bleeding your fish out a couple years ago. I might have already posted this, but it's worth a repeat. when you are ready to head in for the day, take a knife or scissors and cut the gills of your catch. fish don't have a lot of blood, but you will be amazed at how white/clean your fillets will be.

I forgot to do this last week. my cutting board was a mess. today I remembered and barely had to rinse my cutting board. I highly recommend you do this. It improves the taste of your fish and is a lot cleaner

enjoy ^^&&$%GT

I need to remember that.  Maybe if I tape a note on my tackle box . . .

Yari   I have been doing that on and off for several years. You are right it does help the flavor but for me it is the fact that there is no blood on the cleaning table. it is a lot easier to clean up.
