GET THE GILL OUT.

SD
I usually slit the belly then cut under the jaw to get a grip grab the gill mess and pull towards the anus. This usually takes everything out. I have a fresh water washdown which i then use to hose the fish off before burying him in crushed ice. Bigger fish require a little more knife work

Awesome. You guys are such great teachers. I'm guessing you use them like catapults? As it happens I have some toothpicks and rubber bands in the galley drawer. Trouble is, the shrimp keep darting back into their holes when I get close. How do you get them to stay still long enough to load up the toothpicks?

Quinaldine, you squirt the shrimp with it, he goes to sleep, grab him with your left hand and spear him with your right.

Brotha, I think she was talking about my advice about the puppies
Be carefull about how much gill you remove, cutting the head or tail off will get you in trouble in some places.

Well, I didn't want to say but seeing as you bought it up, yes we are great teachers. But let's talk about the prawns and not how awesome we both are.

1.) These are prawns. Not shrimp
2.) You need to go SCUBA Diving at night in about 15mtrs of water.
3.) The prawns are out in the open feeding and having "relations" with each other so you just place the prawn net over them, give it a shake and they swim up in to the net getting tangled.

Easy

For many of the same reasons aforementioned, I don't know much about fishing, but I was recently in St. Thomas aboard a 43 ft. Ketch with a couple who have one circumnavigation and several atlantic crossings under their belt. While underway, they caught a 4 ft. Kingfish with just a troll line. Once they got it aboard, the wife raced into the cabin for a bottle of rum and poured it over and through the gills of the fish, which seemed to bring it totally to rest. Later, they told me it was a humane habit they had developed with so many years on the sea, and if I hadn't seen it myself, I would think someone was pulling my leg. I swear it happened exactly that way, and they claim it always does. A shot of rum?

Oh NOooooo .... if my wife poured my rum over a fish I had caught, I'd be flapping around the deck worse than the bloody fish would have done! Lol

Spike the fish and be done with it.

No regrets! Get in and get it done mate!
Hendo, if I am in sight of getting over to Perth again, I'll take you up on that....also I shall expect a look at the 'Axe', and possibly a quick trip out..? Don't panic, sadly unlikely to be soon, so she will be finished, I have no doubt of that.

It really does a great job of subduing a big fish so you can bleed and clean a thrashing large fish. The trick is if you drag them for a while they tire out and this helps too... but I have lost the back end of fish I did this to to larger predators if left there too long. Back at the start of this topic I suggested this, using a bottle that has a flip lid to squirt small amounts of your hard booze of choice.. tequila is mine. It also lessens that pesky fish oil smell in the boat
