Question Fresh sushi onboard

Is it possible to eat sushi on board while fishing? If I take one fillet off a fish and leave the remains in the cooler is this legal?

Not sure about the legality of it, but I know 2 guys that don't leave the dock without wasabi when they head for blue water.

x2. Around here, not uncommon to see a carcass disappearing overboard around noon on the tuna grounds. Crew's gotta eat.

If it’s tuna or swordfish make sure you read the rules. The way I read them is that no you can’t. The specifically prohibit cleaning up damage from a shark bite to a landed fish so...

Same around here for anything but fluke belly skin for bait in state waters- no cleaning/deheading/dressing allowed. Guess those guys don't know how to read ;-)

The first saltwater charter I ever took was in HI. We had a big yellowfin that got half eaten by a shark. The mate pulled out a jug of soy sauce and dished him and me up some ceviche. Don't know if it was legal in those waters but it sure was good.

I recall a charter out of Hatteras, we were catching big AJ's and the Capt went below, pulled out a George Foreman and a bottle of season all. Man that was good. What happens in the gulf stream stays in the gulf stream.

You guys are making me hungry. We were on an offshore Seabass/Porgie trip a few years back and there was a group of Japanese guys on board. The first bass to hit the deck went back overboard minus its meat. All day people were bringing them a fish or two to slice into sashimi. They had the wasabi and soy sauce and were handing it out. It was great.

Mahi in this pic. Always get some sashimi no matter what we catch. Nothing better.

Pro tip, get the powdered wasabi in a little can, mix that with soy sauce in a baggie. Dip fillets or drizzle over top.

​​​​​Of all the fish in our waters, I've found scup to be the best. Others are chewy

I saw a couple Florida fishing shows where they were cutting up kings and spanish for chunk bait. Don't know if they got loved tenderly by the FWC for that.
Every time I thought about doing that because of lack of live bait, couldn't buy a bite from the toothy ones.

After seeing the pics, need a pot of sushi rice onboard too.

If you read the regs you can take the head off the Tuna no problem.

The head steaks even on a 40Lb Bluefin can yield a significant amount of sushi meat.

When I bring wasabi and soy, I catch nothing I'd eat raw. Without fail.

Adding a tiny amount of sesame oil to that mix of soy sauce and wasabi is awesome!

Also, try Ponzu sauce some day - like soy, but with a little lime kick to it.

The trick is to leave both the soy and the wasbi powder on the boat all year neither go bad at room temp. That way you trick the fish into thinking it's not there same thing with my Gopro I never take it off the boat, at least that's how I fooled myself out of the superstition.
