I always troll a line and now exclusively with a spoon lure. (must be clean - no stain or rust at all). I use a game rod as the tricky part is to land the fish into the boat. For me thats when they will fall off the hook. We use a net as well.

Often have to let out the mainsheet to try and slow the boat to make it easier to bring in the fish. I dont fish in bad weather or at night.

We use metholated spirits in a pump spray - a few squirts down their gills will kill them quick. Bleed the fish in a bucket. Gut and behead it immediately, fillet it straight away and into packets for cryovac or fridge for the nights meal.


mmm, licking lips just thinking off fresh fish.

We have to tether the cat away as she will walk on the rails to get some fresh fish. She gets enough off cuts to keep her happy, but she would really get in the way.
