How to deal with pike slime

Recommended Posts

I just keep a pile of old rags handy and give them a good wipe down on some newspaper before filleting. When done, I throw out the rag and newspaper with everything else. Pretty simple operation and it works well. I only keep a few fish a year for a fish fry or two up north so I don't go through a ton of rags.

I agree with not letting fish freeze or hit the ice. When I clean the slush out of my holes I leave the bucket half full of slush and put the fish in there. The slush floats to the top and the fish don't make a noisy mess flopping around. When I clean the fish they are still alive, but not very active. If your fishing for pike you may want to do the same thing, but use a cooler. I lay newspaper down then put my cutting board or cardboard on top of the newspaper.

I used to use newspaper to Fillet the fish but it would Bunch up and keep moving and getting in the way I now use a piece of cardboard and that is much more Superior than newspaper and it's plenty available in the cardboard bins and then just put them in the garbage or burn them. I like to clean my fish right after I catch them and the cardboard works perfect on the tailgate summer or winter
