fish in "RIB" often

FYI, I've caught a number of halibut from my 16' Zodiac. Sure, some hooks can be a problem, so use circle hooks. I harpoon the bigger halibut and let them pull a bouy until they are dead, then slide them over the side. My next boat will be a real RHIB, and may have foam collars just for that reason. john

Seen this done in a film!!! But it was a bit bigger than a halibut!

What size halibut are you catching?

It's nice to see that humane despatch of living creatures is being practised everywhere..... I have no problem with killing things.. ask anyone .. but do it quick.... and yes, I am a hypocrite as I eat things, which I know full well have died slowly, but given the choice, which we are not, would choose otherwise... and no, I'm not going to turn vegetarian either, as I don't consider that natural for the human species....

There! That should provoke a response or two….

If you kill something slowly this creates a massive adrenalin release in the body which makes the muscle contract and tense up, for this reason its better to dispatch the prey quickly before it knows its about to die, then the eating is much better, we really should get Phil Davies input on this as he kills things quite oftern, though does shooting them out of the sky count in this case, i'd suggest harpooning a fish and letting it swim around dragging a bouy till it either dies of exhaustion or blood lose would make for a pretty horrific way to die, image killing a cow in this way ?

Yes I agree with you here, killing & eating I have no problem with but do it as quickly & cleanly as possible!

I know that you will probably have my head for this but my question is this (and I'm not a conservationist or any thing like that):

ISN'T SEA OVERFISHED BY ALL THE IGNORAMOUS FISHERMAN WITHOUT US ADDING TO THE DISTRUCTION? If you want to eat fish why don't you use the supermarket. Is got plenty there and you are not in danger to damage your boat in the process When you want meat you don't go around killing cows? Do you?

Reminds me of a swan coming in to land on the Dart one evening, when I would have been about 11. Don't know what the swan had been drinking but it made a complete horlicks of it and landed in the cockpit of my Dad's small sloop which was quietly motoring down the river. The commotion frightened the crap out of us and we retreated to the small cabin with the boat still motoring on.

My Dad tried to encourage it to leave with the blade of a dinghy oar (!), which the swan took to be a hostile gesture and the hissing and flapping was something to behold. Of course the swan had no possibility of extricating itself on it's own from the steep sides of the cockpit and eventually had to be levered with two paddles. I don't know who was the most relieved party when this situation was finally over, but anybody out for a quiet evening stroll on the banks of the Dart would have creased up.
