Yes those are the same methods I use and always always always bleed them out in your Live Well. You'll be amazed how much cleaner and neater it is when you're filleting them at the station. We started doing this with our walleyes on Lake Erie and man what a difference there's no blood in the meat there's Snow White.

I slice the gills but then drag them off the side of the boat on a rope to keep the blood off the deck. Then right on ice until they hit the dock

I have a 5 gallon bucket that I fill have way with water. I put the salmon in head first, slice the gills and and let them bleed out. Reset rod, pull the fish, hose off, take any pic, then in the box.

Don’t forget to put it on your scale before you bleed out. Every ounce helps for your story 🤭

Nah, just add 5 lbs to compensate for blood and water loss 🤫

I got a large carbineer from harbor freight and set it up on a rope on a cleat, I keep a small fillet knife out and bleed them over the side. The large carbineer is much easier than threading rope IMHO.

I like the idea of pulling them with a rope and letting them bleed out that way and the carabeaner is a good idea. Thanks!

This is an example of an extra large one that would work for this purpose

I usually tie it off at the beginning of the day to ensure it's the correct length and won't get tangled in any of the gear after you start fishing
