Hey Drop Bear

Yep, same here. I either chuck 'em in the water/ice, or slit there throats.

I better buy an Ikejuime!

You can just do it with a short knife. I don't think I would ever get to taking the spine out!

I've been brain spiking and bleeding mine for a while now. 

I just use the knife in the bait board. It's very quick and imo the flesh tastes better cause the fish hasn't stressed itself out to much. That could just be the placebo effect though.

Yeah I usually push a knife just behind the eye for most fish speices  that usually kills them instantly sometimes I do it twice if not much blood is coming out of the stab wound and then I slit the throat with a knife then put the fish in the Eski with some water from the body of water im fishing in it . Seems to work well

For all fish - follow lateral line along body, spot to spike approx 1/2 way between end of lateral line and center of eye. I use a sharp short pocket knife on the kayak, the wider blade affords some minor inaccuracy in location as well.

 

Exception to this rule is flathead... they are difficult.

Another difficult one is stingrays. When @crazywalrus decided to take one for the table, there was a bloodbath in the boat from all the different attempts to locate the brain.

Yes but you have to admit it is hard to find your Brain
