How to FIELD DRESS or CLEAN a Fish + Trailer to Next Fishing Video! The simple things are the best. Like my favourite spring time bluefish dinner. I look forward to this the most during the cold months of winter. Be sure to bleed the fish first or not. Simply scale, cut, gut and gill. Rinse and throw in the back of your trunk. Rinse again when you get home, add some salt and pepper throw in the oven and you have the best spring dinner you can have. Its my favourite!

This is good information. I never gave field cleaning a thought before but I'm going to do this next time I take one home. It will make my wife happy for sure.

I've other thing: I usually cut the neck open at the base of the gills immediately to bleed them out. Less blood sitting in the meat means less fishy flavor later.

Also, I always wanted to try this but I'm not sure how it would work on the beach with no cooler:

Took a fish home this morning and cleaned it on the beach. First time doing that. I am definitely doing that from now on. Thanks for the inspiration!

Do I need to have a cutting board. It will be heavy to carry that fishing. I normally do it in the back yard. The fish guts got buried in the garden for the tomatoes.

You can use the whole carcass in the garden.

No cutting board necessary. Just watch Jerry's video. I always carry a knife on my surf belt. I sharpen it after every use. Believe me, a sharp knife makes quick work of things and you want that when you're bleeding the fish. No need to make it suffer through your sawing away with a dull blade. I make a deep slice underneath right behind the head. When the blood sprays out, you hit the jugular and he won't last long after that. Don't try to clip the gills. You need to hit the jugular and that buried under some meat behind the front fins.
