Tied up to the dock in Funter Bay. learned a new method for removing blood from my fish using a catheter attached to the end of the waterhose and inserting it along the forward part of the kidney, after the gills are removed. It took some monkeying around finding the right tubing to make the catheter work – half the fun of any project – and then trying to find the right insertion point. I finally got it, and know this is another big step in producing the best fish we can. Caught 31 cohos in a half day of fishing, and was so intent figuring out the catheter I didn’t realize I caught that many.
