That's a very strange topic for an instructional video... *chuckle*

I've been avoiding the wood shampoo for the most part, in favor of a new (to me) technique that seems to be doing well: ike jime.

Basically, the idea is to sever the spine and the vein that follows just below it instead of bonking the fish. Takes a time or two to learn where the vertebrae meet the skull (Just inside the operculum, or gill cover) so that you can get a knife in there. Also sever the other end of the spine and drop the fish into cold water to bleed out. If done right, the fish never goes into full rigor and the finished product is much higher quality.

I did a side-by-side comparison with another guy's fish, caught around the same time. His was stiff as a board, while mine was still supple as it was in life.

Maybe I'll post a video of the next one :lol:

I'm a fan of this technique, its more instantaneous, and when done right, there is no suffering. I have bonked a few fish that required two or three bonks. I have been made fun of for carrying a hickory hammer handle in my back pack, but on more than one occasion, there has not been a rock or other blunt instrument available. I especially prefer the "spinal slice" for smaller fish.

cut the gills first. give it a good 30 sec to a min hold it straight up and let it drain. Then give it a good WAM. it'll twitch for about 5 sec and spew the rest of it blood as it convulses. Thats how you Get er' done. ;)
