Moutain Dew or sprite - 03/25/21 11:54 AM

Several months ago I read on here that when you gut hook of bass, some were using a drink to stop the bleeding. I even remember a video. But can not remember which drink yall used.

I have used diet coke. Tourney rules dont allow for bourbon so if I was about to die I would appreciate someone pouring diet coke in my mouth if no bourbon is available.

I use Mountain Dew but I think any carbonation should work. Always have a bottle in the boat

When I hook a fish deep and it bleeds, I usually take a bottle of 7 Up and cup and mix equal parts Crown Royal Reserve and the 7 Up. I will share a little with the fish and I drink the rest.

I keep a container of "Please Release Me" in my boat...this is a livewell agent along w/ a clotting agent. I just sprinkle a little where it's bleeding and watch it work. Then I release the fish into water for another day.

Agreed. Latest study I read on carbonated sodas for treating gill damage showed no significant difference between them and untreated lake water for duration of bleeding after an injury. Probably best to just get them in treated livewell water as quickly as possible and let natural clotting do its work.

Anything carbonated will work, a sprinkle of catch and release or please release me is probably better for the fish.
