I've never fished to keep, I've always caught and released the fish. I caught some big ol' bass today though and I'm going again tomorrow and I want to keep them. How do you humanely kill them before takin them home? I figure a bucket of ice water?

we put them in a cooler with ice, and then they usually die on the way home. then we cut them open take out all the bones and have a fish dinner.. i love fishing. i have very rarely catched and release, we only do it when it's mandatory.
my grandpa beats them in the head with a rock. i love fishing too.

putting them in a cooler of ice is stangling them to death. they can't breath so itis a slow tortureous death. you should cut thier head off then but them in the bucket. or just snap thier neck. quick and simple that way they don't suffer to much.
for bass/most fish i usually just put them on a stringer and let them kinda swim in the water or put them in a live well. And that freeze technique is pretty well mandatory for lake trout if you catch them. They swim in such cold water that if they arent on ice when they get out then their meat goes bad.

honestly its a freaking fish. who the heck cares??? I go fishing all the time and when i catch and keep i just throw em in a bucket of ice and they die. thats that who cares if they suffocate theirs 4000000000000000000000000 more of them.
I'm a firm believe in the philosophy of a ruling class. Especially since I rule.
i don't know. maybe like grab them by the tail and wack their head against something hard????
I'm not guilty.
YOU'RE the one that's guilty.
The lawmakers, the politicians, the Columbian drug lords, all you who lobby against making drugs legal.
Just like you did with alcohol during the prohibition.
You're the one who's guilty.
I mean, c'mon, let's kick the ballistics here: Ain't no Uzi's made in Harlem. Not one of us in here owns a poppy field.
This thing is bigger than the drug dealers. This is big business.
This is the American way.
u kill it then freeze it
to kill it u ether stab it in the brain like inbetween the eyes i think (it may sound bad but its better then sufficating them)
or u snalp their neck by putting your thhumb in the mouth and quickly pull back as hard as u can and that will kill them
or hit them as hard as u can on the head with a rock/bat/padle
dont use the freezing thing casue its crual and inhuman
save a carrot eat a cow
I wouldn't advise keeping the big ones. Older fish don't taste nearly as good as the younger ones. For bass, I'd eat them if they were roughly 12-15" long, but once they get much bigger than that they won't taste quite right. Also, it's better for a trophy fishery if you let the big ones go.
take your pointer finger and middle finger and put them underneath the front gils. the pull back on the head. it snaps the neck, they die immediatly and feel no pain. shit's legit.

most people either just hit them on the head or keep em out in the air for a few minutes. you could just slit them open with a kniffe too. i almost always catch and release and the only time i killed one was when i threw it in the water for an eagle to take it was reaallly cool cause i flew right over our heads with its talons out and we got some awsome pics.
