You can brine it and and seal it in a food saver bag. It will be safe to eat.

LOL, I am familiar with her, I have fished everywhere from the coat of block island to cape Elizabeth. One time we chartered a trip in florida with the guys from Chaoss, and I swear we were so far off Jupitor Island one time that I could see grand bahama, !!! We just kept chugging east and fast, they said it was how the current works, but it just dragged us so fast and smooth, I never felt anything like it. I didn't catch anything fun that day, but did smoke the motor on my Penn Dolphin, I know I deserve what I get for using an e-assist, but I have pulled in 2 marlins and a bunch of swords by hand, I have fished all over the world and reeled my share of fish, I can honestly say it was fun then but not anymore, lol. I fish to relax...

If you are on the ocean and have the ability to catch fish when you want to eat them, that is the best way to go, no doubt, nothing like catching, gutting, cutting, and cooking before you are even back to shore!!! I would never buy venison, lol, I can go out in my back yard and take my limit in weekend, so I am sure someone who fishes a lot would feel the same way... Or someone who has wild boar in their back yard would not be buying pork...

Well, that's great if you happen to live near the Atlantic Ocean, but for the remaining 99.9% of us who have little choice but to buy fillets, it's more realistic to judge by sight, smell, and touch. I get the impression the original poster probably doesn't have access to his own fishing boat.

I catch lobster, several species. I don't catch fish, I shoot them. Hogfish being #1, mutton snapper #2 and my favorite, black grouper #3. Although I list it as my favorite, it is #3 because the are very quick to haul butt after seeing you. You better get a shot off within about 3 seconds or they are gone. I'm lucky if I get 2 a year/season.

I think he meant see the fish whole, like a fish market that will filet you a salmon in front of you, this way you know the fish wasn't hit by a car or a victim of suicide...

I'm pretty sure I know what he meant. However, I live smack dab in the middle of the country. When we see salmon here, it's almost never whole, even at the "upscale" fish market where the price is double.

I have never shot a fish, my father went fishing in alaska and he said they shot the halibut before bringing it in the boat, but the hooked it first. And I have seen people fresh water fish with a rimfire rifle, and pebbles, thats pretty cool, you toss a pebble into the shallow clear water and wait for a fish to investigate, then shoot it and net it, but never did it myself..
I have shot plenty of turkeys {lots of wingeds, I love bird hunting}, deer, bear {ok not plenty of bear, lol}, buffalo {no fun at all, much like target practice, only did that once}, wild hog {about the most fun I have ever had holding a rifle}, etc, but never shot a fish...

Where are you out of Craig, catching lobster and the atlantic coast, Maine?

I choose to live here because there is access to the Atlantic and Gulf. Not telling you what to do with your limited choices, just stating what I will do or not do. BTW, I think you will find a lot more than .01% living around our coastal areas.

That's fine for you. Again, most of us here are trying to provide a realistic and reasonable answer to the poster's question, not something as silly as "if you want good fish, walk down to the ocean and shoot it."
