we keep our fish in a cooler on ice for a day or so. but if you keep them too long uncleaned they wil get all slimy and start to turn white and smell.

You have to be careful of the meat around the belly as the enzymes in the gut can start digesting through but even if that occurs the rest of the filet is usually fine.
Gotta love a good dog! They make us look better than we really are.

A day is normally ok, but like someone else said above, I could clean a fish as fast as it takes for me to write this.

I would deffinately clean them before hand. We put our fillets in an cooler with ice and let the drain open and add ice as it melts for a week. It helps to remove fat and blood.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

i cleaned them yesterday and fried them up last night. a nice little shore lunch beer batter. my buddy showed me how easy it is to fillet these bad boys and even got me the checks. those cheeks are like BUTTER!!!!! i wish i had more then my four. first time ever cooking them and they turned out better then i thought. next time i am just going to use shore lunch and no beer or eggs (didn't use eggs and beer) i am addicted, i am going to buy a boat just so i can go after these eyes. now i know what all the fuss is about. :thumbsup:
