Erm.... why?

And the booze thing. I really like that. I get so upset when they're flapping about suffocating. Not to mention the blood they spray

I assume its for the same reason as over here SS. If you catch certain fish you are not allowed to fillet them onboard. For example, In relation to coral reef fish, a recreational fisher:

must not possess, on board a boat, a fish other than in any of the following forms-whole, gilled, gutted or filleted

may possess, on board a boat, a fillet of a fish other than a Chinese footballer (blue spot) trout as long as the length of the fillet is at least 40 cm, and the skin and scales of the fillet are attached to the fillet

must not return fish that have been taken ashore from a boat and filleted, and then returned to a boat, unless the length of the fillet is at least 40 cm and skin of the fillet is attached to the fillet

There are very serious implications to those that disobey rules like this and penalties can range from on the spot fines, impounding of fishing equipment including the boat, if you are a trailer "fisherperson" (that quotes for you saucy) they can and will cease the trailer and car and for repeat offenders ... Jail

Is this the same sort of thing as over there?

Same law?
Pretty much, you can't cut the tail or head off. The best we can do if you have a captain license and file a float plan you can start cleaning the fish on the way in. We are only allowed to keep a two day worth of catch if you have two people on board with captain's tickets. I guess if your cooking them over night they can bust you but I would hope they don't get that bad. I guess I should be happy that we can still carry guns onboard.

Woops.....sorry about that Hollywood. I guess that's what I get for not reading the whole thread. Anyway, I suppose that would be true....I mean, what does the fish care.....or does he. Maybe the fish deserves the best for his last drink.

In Oregon you may take one limit a day but you can have two limits in your possession unless you are home then you can have all you want. So if my boat at some point becomes my home then.........hummmm

To dispatch the fish I use a squirt bottle full of cheap local rum and squirt it into the gills. It quiets them immediately and they go to sleep peacefully! I can then slit the gills to bleed them if in the mackerel family. and the side benefit is if I don't catch a fish I can drink the rum.

Is that what they call a rummy?....wonder if it affects the taste of the fish?

Good question. I think the fish tastes a little sweeter!

Hemingway called heavy drinkers a "rummy", especially around Cuba. He wrote a lot about fishing, and boating, but apparently never discovered the soporific effect of rum on fish.

The same technique also works for the fisherman!
