      i usually kill them with a quick stap behind the eye, into the brain, with my pocketknife. some freeze them alive, i dont like that idea much

        I tried a pocketknife behind the eye but it kept on flopping.

          theres a certain point you gotta hit, sometimes a quick twist works well. some people bash in their heads too

                I just hit them in the head right in between the eyes, that is if they survive the trip home from the lake in the cooler.

                  Put the fish on ice and they fall asleep

                    Put them in the ice chest with a mixture of ice and water and the Good Lord will call it home. Every time.

                            1 inch steel pipe and a good blow to the head, then quickly fillet it, then they get tossed in the composted, they don't live long after the pipe.

                              Yeah I think a quick blow to the head is the best. Or theres a blue heron sometimes where I fish but I dont think I'd get the fish back.
