I recall reading an article in a local rag back in about Feb ….It was quoting the famous fisherman Pete from Brighton Sports ….some might know him as mulletman’s mentor…….he clearly recommended washing the elephant in FRESH water , and discouraged using salt water as it can result in sand in the flesh ….

I use fresh , and only fresh for exactly that reason ….and have no issues about the taste …..

I think its more important to correctly bleed the fish , then keep it chilled till you get it home …..but hey , I might try using salt water and see if it makes a difference …..
