So, did you guys notice the difference in color between the fish on the right and the fish on the left?
The one on the right was cut across the throat latch and put into the saltwater slurry to "bleed out".
(By my buddy, who normally doesn't even try to bleed Seabass at all...I'm starting to convince him )
However what he did was NOT the right way to do it because that's where the fish's heart is....that fish died with a lot of blood still remaining in it.
Thats why the flesh is pinkish. It was good, but not as good as the whiter one on the left.
The whiter fish on the left was more tender, had a better mouth feel and a much sweeter flavor.
That fish was bled properly (by me) with a cut into the gills, and a stab into the base of the tail (make sure you break the bone and see blood start to ooze out) which allowed all the blood to be pumped out of that fish.
I always try to treat my catch as FOOD from the moment it comes off the hook, and enjoy my fishing day twice, once when I catch em, and again when I eat em!
I bleed most of my fish but never thought to do the sea bass, new to sea bass fishing. Hopefully I have some luck tomorrow and I'll bleed some out! Tog, bass, tuna, wahoo, shark, tiles and more but never really thought about doing the sea bass as they are already yummy! I was filleting a few flounder on sat and thought about it as I nicked a bone and blood ran out. Next time I'll bleed them too. Thanks for sharing.
The ride is only as bad as the fishing!!
Check this out:
Scroll down to the pic of the fluke that was allowed to die in a cooler vs. the fish that was properly treated AS FOOD.
That is a really big difference eh?
