    Ok... the vast majority of the time, I am fishing for cod on my PB or going for tuna outside on an overnight. Disposal of the carcasses is easy.

    What do you all do when it isn't so easy -- seeing all these reports of 180+lb threshers or PBer getting hooked on 200lb bluefin. Say you bring that monster home, fillet it -- and now you have 80lbs of head guts and bones to deal with. Where does it go?

    Local supermarket dumpster? Ex's front yard? Normal trash (much to the chagrin of your neighbors)?

    Cut it up into manageable pieces, double bag in heavy bags that are both knotted, carefully place in trash can so bones or sharp stuff doesn't poke any holes, hope critters don't open bag before the trash men come!

    Cut it into sections and freeze them, then use them for chum when making bait is tough on your next trip out.

    If it isn't too much freeze it and throw it the trash on trash day.A large carcass might mean a trip back down to the water for disposal for me.You can bag carcasses all you want,unless you put lime on it it's going to wreak in a day or two.

    Dig a hole in the backyard and covered back with dirt and placed something on top so critters can't dig it up. It seems to rejuvenate the soil and drive gophers away for a few weeks.

    I brought home a 130 pound Mako to show the kids many years ago. It was a Saturday in September. I placed the remains in a trash bin and on Thursday night I drug that can to the curb. IT WAS HORRIBLE, the stink would knock you down. The next morning two OC Sherrifs were walking around my neighborhood, I walked out and apologized for the smell. They had been called someone had reported the smell of a dead body. They said they had to see it was not human, I warned them how bad it would be to open the lid. They actually did Paper-Rock-Scissors to see who had to open the can. Poor guy he had to back to the station to change his uniform, the smell in a few seconds perminated his clothing.

    Now I always breakdown the fish on the boat removing the head and guts, this way I end up with backbones and trimmings. If I can I place them in a garbage bag and put the bag in the freezer, on trash night put the bag in the can. By the time the trash man comes they have not thawed out completely.

    No bag, straight into the trash. Open lid. Bake it in the hot for many days. Place trash can near neighbor's property.

    Thats what I do.....URBAN WARFARE......

    But that's payback for my neighbor nasty smelly dog run that is next to my property.

    Payback is a bitch.......

    I freeze all mine. Put them in the cooler the night before my trip then I fatten the lobsters when I get to my first spot.

    Bag, freeze and into the basura the night before trash pickup, or a short trip to a local harbor trash can.

    Lobster bait for next year if you have a freezer big enough.

    A friend (who is on my tuna distribution list) has some Filipino employees. They have a block party with the parts I don't want to deal with. Win win.

    You think you got a problem what about the 5-Star and Sportsmens Seafood fish processing operations. I heard they load up a boat and dump ablout 7 miles out.

    That doesn't make any sense. When I used to sell fish in San Francisco the buyers at the wharf would just let the cat food companies pick all that shit up for cat food processing.... barely any waste...
