    Default Set net fish .... Bleeding?

    I'm thinking about buying setnet fish vs dipping my own
    but I bleed my reds immediately and ice them
    how much difference will I see with fish coming off a set net site?
    ill be getting fish right off the tide so I'm not that worried about icing
    but the fact that they aren't bled has me concerned

    I can't imagine it being that hard for a Setnetter to bleed some fish for you. If they were smart, they would make sure you got some quality fish in hopes of a happy customer with the hopes of more business

    Usually a processor pays a premium to bleed the fish. So I would imagine he already bleeds them. If I was you I would just ask him if they will be bled.

    I often buy from a local set netter who fishes late in the Northern District. He brings them right to my door, on ice. I pay the same as he gets from the cannery. Can't beat that deal. I buy from him on the years I don't get enough dipping or sport fishing.
