Default Fish carcasses?

What do y’all do with your carcasses after you fillet them? I used to just throw them in the pasture but my stupid mitts like to chew on and roll in the rotting carcasses. They’ll dig them up if they’re buried. I hate to throw them in the trash especially as it gets warmer. Ideas?

I drop them in the water after I clean them. It is cool watching the fish come up to eat them. They get used to nailing them at the cleaning station.

I may or may not have dumped them on my high school principal front porch all the time in the 90s...

This. I rototill mine in. It might not work with your dogs. They might roll in it. It really produces very little odor. The results you get from your plants are very obvious.

I have tried this, but the fire ants found them and invaded the garden.

Garden.

Freeze and toss in trash.

Or clean at the lake and be done when I get home and have time for cold beer! This is my favorite option!!

I've taken post hole diggers and placed them around various trees. Usually deep enough that nothing digs them up and the trees seem to love it.

I bury them in my compost pile. It's enclosed so the dogs can't have a party.

Yep. I put a LOT deep in a hole and then planted a peach tree in the hole. That sucker grew 3 times faster than the other trees I planted.

I'm going to try and trench a deep trench close to a row of fruit trees and then bury more fish scraps.

Yes, use as fertilizer around your trees and shrubs. You don't have to bury them too deep.

Freeze them and use them for chum next time you go fishing. Works really well for redfish.
