Let's discuss, how many of you here regularly dispatch your fish, either with a club or spike/knife (thru the brain).
Brought my knife out on a boat trip and got a few fishes cleanly pierced with my knife.
This is a western deba with a fairly sharp and pointed tip and strong blade so it managed to get thru the skull cleanly. I wouldn't recommend it with the standard filleting knifes though as those would be rather thin and flexible.
Who else does this to keep the fish fresh and with better eating qualities?
