It's a waste of time if your not selling the fish.

If you're only able to keep one fish wouldn't you want it to be the best quality possible?
Most regular rec guys won't be able to tell the difference.

Difference between a #1 - #2+ fish to a rec guy? Not much.

Difference between a #1- #2+ fish to a broker? Lots of money.

If you're fishing for personal consumption: Just make sure the fish is bled, tapped, gutted, and iced properly.

And if you're that concerned about cooling down the fish...make a swim hook. I believe Offshore Angler sells a wiremens' hand gaff. It's like $25.
