    Re: Flushing Salmon Blood

    Ive seen similar techniques in videos. The commercial guys have to keep fish fresh for a long time. It takes a while to get from the boat to processor, to grocery store to BBQ. I dont know that its necessary for us sport guys, but it sure cant hurt. Im sure it fits the highest quality possible test.

    Very cool tip.

    Flushing Salmon Blood

    I read about “flushing” Salmon blood to get the highes quality and better tasting catch.

    My friends Mark and Oscar flushes theirs and confirmed that the Salmon taste much better than just slitting the gill to bleed.

    Today, Oscar gave me a plastic type syringe tip and some clear tubing that I attached to a 1 gallon sprayer tank. Being that I don't have a 12v pump on my boat, this sprayer will produce a low pressure salt water stream to flush the blood.

    Other species can also be flushed such as Steelhead, Trout, Koke, Striper to name a few.

    Thought I'd share.
