Hi, this is a very basic question but whats the best way to kill fish when catching to keep, last person I went with just gave them a bash on the head but someone else fishing near by was loudly saying this was a cruel way to do it, so advice please?

As Snaggletooth says, a decent weight priest is the best way. You can find these in most tackle shops and on t'internet, mainly in the game fishing section. Try to do it discretely if possible though, ie. not in view of other shore users and holiday makers etc.

if dispatching a fish a fish by a blow to the head is cruel, i would have been interested to know how this other 'angler' does it.

Personally I inject the fish with morphine or a suitable alternative whilst playing calming music and giving it a massage before clubbing it over the head or inserting thumb in its mouth and firmly breaking its neck:boxing:.

Maybe this was the ethically sound method of despatch matey boy down the beach from you uses.

Whilst the Morphine use can only be for the good, I do not believe putting your finger in a fishes mouth and breaking it's neck should be endoresed on this site.
It could be a conger!

point taken- I should add that I generally only use the thumb in mouth method for codling

Hippies! I start by using a pliers to pull out each and every one of their little tiny scales, then I move onto their fins, where I pull the spines out one by one, if they are then still alive I move onto a hammer which I taunt them with for an hour or so before smashing their genitals and leaving them to die screaming on the beach.

I've not heard any of them complain thusfar.

I like your style-I'm not familiar with it personally but i believe they call it the "marathon man" technique.

I pay a sniper to hide 2000 yards away, and I hold up the fish and he takes it out with a single round. :)

Or I just deploy 'Old Painless!' which is really a twelve inch piece of 22mm copper pipe. One sharp blow behind the eyes is the quickest way, any other method that causes suffering is not on in my opinion.

seriously though as long as its not gasping for breath i will deploy any necessary means to dispatch fish for the table. my reducer is an excellent priest but if i havent got that i either kill it with a heavy blow from a suitably sized rock or insert a sharp knife through its spine. as long as it doesnt suffocate to death im happy:bangin:

I got a H.V battery opperated electric fish chair. Strap the cap on over the calming mask, no need to add water as fish is already wet, flick the switch and watch it tremble LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL!!!


Seriously tho, a bang on the head is the best method!!!

I usually bash ‘em over the head with something long thick and hefty.
Sometimes just getting it out scares them to death :eek:hmy::laugh:
