miles said:paddythefrog, diving with a body stringer is a definite no-no. Sharks can be expected EVERYWHERE where there is water, well maybe excluding bath-tubs and toilets!!! Seriously though, regardless of where you dive, always be aware of sharks. The fact that you have seals would indicate that there would be predators that feed on them. Besides, seals ALSO bite. They DO become vicious and can inflict VERY painfull wounds!!! What i used to do when diving in areas with plenty of seals was to put a black garbage bag over my stringer. The seals will then simply ignore your fish. Only downside is that when you've shot a couple of fish, there's quite a bit of drag on your floatline!!! Oh well, at least your legs then get a GREAT work-out!!!
I've heard this suggested before -- but how do you do that without stabbing yourself?! (I usually follow the second method decribed by Huan -- knife or stringer up through gills to brain. However, I am not satisfied that this is the cleanest, quickest method possible.)mishu1984 said:ice pick right in between the eyes should do the trick. they wil quiver and start to gasp for a few seconds, maybe even for a few minutes depending on how big your fish is and then die like all fish should
The mountaineering tool is usually called an ice-axe (ice-ax in the USA), the point out front is usually called the pick.Huan said:Groats,
Being in switzerland probably has you thinking about the mountaineering icepick,
