Kevin, You would have been better off just gutting him Rather than trying to get the knife through a rock that just pisses them off more.

A good spike type knife like my Riffe Silencer is great for getting in there to the sweet spot. I usually just let the big ones hang out on the shaft for a good long time for them to bleed out before I start pulling them in.

Nice AJ and good video.

Did you happen to measure him? Just curious how big he was.

Great job! The easiest and fastest way to kill them is reach deep in their gills and rip them out. Seriously, way easier and safer than trying to stab them with something. They die quickly with no oxygen...
