Spose to be really nice eating!

Whats with the cuts behind the heads? Iv allways bled sharks by cutting there tail off.

Is the cut behind the head a better way?

Table quality

Yeah, gummies are good chewin’ya got that right fella's.

We cut and crack the spine at the back of the head, then the tail second. Big buggers also get a throat slit for good measure. This is how I was shown as a lad back in South Australia. We never have issues with smelly ammonia in the fillets, seems to work. Some people cut the fins off, but I don't think this improves the table quality, only makes for a crappy photo!

Sounds like a good plan there German, look out Mindarie fish, SHE’S ON!

Cheers Jason
