bfloyd A kerthunk is the sound a boat makes when its thirsty crew attempts to board.

As distinct from the ARRRRRRGH sound a pirate makes when a thirsty crew attempts to board.

Well mate, the sound you describe reminds me of the sound a boarder makes after chugging the first cold brew on a hot day then discovering all the rest are warm.

Agreed. Leave the rods at home and Dive Dive Dive :-D

So relaxing and there is so much to catch to eat ;-)

I do agree on the diving thing. I have always loved snorkeling, and my one regret was never having the chance to get my scuba certificate. Maybe one day I will..? I just love under the water - always have - ever since as a farm kid I lay in the creek with goggles and snorkel watching the cockabullies and eels swim by...

Well if you're in Perth and have two days free, I can get you certified mate. I'm a Part-time dive instructor for the SSI team (SCUBA Schools International)

You can do your written stuff over the net at home and the rest is in the water.

No regrets! Get in and get it done mate!

One thing about fresh fish.

I had a fellow working for me as he finished his masters degree as a fish biologist.
His area of study was what makes fish spoil.

When you catch a fish the first thing to do is bleed the fish next is to remove the gills or the head and gills.

Bacteria first forms in the gills and begins to spoil the fish.

So to keep the fish fresh the longest. Get the gills out ASAP

SD: You're absolutely right and in warm climates, in addition, you have to chill them ASAP, particularly with tuna. Tuna are a particularly bloody fish that will actually heat up while being caught. Here's our favorite, surf and turf (tuna and tails)!

I kind of figgured everyone knows about chilling but the thing about the gills is what most people don't know.

When the Copper River reds ar running. And the fish is worth about a $100.00 each on the market. This is one of the first things done by the commercial guys.

It means to get the blood out of the fish.

Usually by passing a knife through the gills while the fish is still alive so they bleed to death.

I guess thats what i do but a bit diferent. I gut them as soon as caught which bleeds them pretty fast then bury then in ice. No live well stringer or box, just catch, clean, ice then back to fishing.

SD: You guys eat, sleep and sh.t fish up there. I run into a lot of people who are just getting going, they may have been living inland or never had the opportunity to fish other than at a supermarket.

They have just caught their first fish behind the boat. The usually say 4 things, "what is it?", "I don't know?, get the book" and "can we eat it?". Sometimes I feel like I'm around my 6 year old nephew when he caught his first fish.
