how do you guys get your fish home? do you kill it, bleed it, ice it, get it home and gut it? gut it before you leave...?

Now thats some all natral way of cooking it right there.Mike123 said:Bonk, bleed, leave on bank to cook a little, then wash off dirt, then throw in back of rig to cook a little longer, get home and it's ready to eat.
OnTheFly said:lmao. Come on guys bonk then bleed. Bonking first eliminates all the flopping around and it will bleed out just fine. We did it in that order up in K-Kan. Besides, how would you like it if someone cut your throat then killed you later.:shock:
USCGAUXHinkle said:lol great point! besides, i've been hurt pretty good trying to take hooks out of a flopping steelhead. those things are POWERFUL!
lol my first ever steelhead i had to use my shirt... it sucked. well, actually it was someone else's shirt that got left in my car. i guess the lesson there is don't leave stuff in my car lol.OnTheFly said:They sure are and they really get ticked off. Also, about the fish transport thing, you can wrap the fish up in a wet towel and it keeps them cool without ice for awhile. I had to use my shirt once but I don't recommend that if you don't have too.
