    I always soak the big ones in ice for a couple of days. Helps the taste a lot.

    Hard to beat a big slab of belly meat off of a 50 pound flat cat.

    Do yall hang em and bleed em?
    Best I ever had was some big ones out of the Pecos river.
    Me and one guy had paddled out to a big rock and we were on it catching bait. He tied the canoe to a nail in the rock and I said that aint going to work so I checked it and said its fine.
    Turned around a little latter canoe was gone. The guy on land was scared of water so he wouldnt go after it.
    Swim back to shore go down stream and trough some cane brush and charged buy javelinos. Interesting morning

    We've never bleed them or hang em out,but with the bigger blues I will soak the meat for 2-3 days ,changing the water daily.

    The exception I've found...there is a little local lake that doesnt allow you to use your boat ,so you pay $5 to rent theirs and bring your trolling motor. Most people wont fish there due to that law,but I go there just as soon as the water opens from the ice ,generally February ish and have great luck with rod and reel fishing(only method allowed on that lake) and catch up to 40 pound blues. The meat is excellent,and I believe that it is because they dont have the fat content from using it all winter long. The are skillet ready with no soaking.

    Try washing the meat with lemon dish washing soap. So simple.

    Very serious thread digressed in a matter of minutes.

    As far as coat colors, just like people they are all the same when the color is removed. Rumors abound about genetics and color and laziness but that is all they are rumors and opinions and you know what goes after that. How is that for digression? BSEG! Black dogs can't jump.....

    As a heart attack. My aunt's husband told me about it. We used it. It works. No fishy taste.
