Hit it hard on its tail !! It will die in seconds. 
Always be careful when dealing with them especially if big !!

if you have a 'ganc' gaff it near its mouth so as to have a very good grip and that way you can control it. then hit it really hard on its head or tail. obviously be really carefull from its mouth as once it bites it does not let go!

As Gazzetta says hit it hard between its vent (arse) & its tail, thats where its "lymph heart" is, it will then die very quickly, so you dont have to keep looking where it is! Shocked

altough it s not compatible with this topic exactly.once i was fishing in quiet beach with a bogue as a live bait and after about a half an hour a fish got hooked up and it was taking many line because it was a very strong fish .it took me several time till i began to see float and lucky there was a hunter and when he saw me that it was very difficult to land the enormous fish without having a gaff or a fishing net he came up with the idea to shoot the fish and he killed it .then i landed it safely and it was a well sized barracuda more than 5kg surely because i didnt weighed it because i gave it to the hunter immediatly

In the past me and a very old friend of mine used to go fishing for Morina and we used to catch really big ones. I used to kill them with 2 very long, longnose pliers which I bought from (rolson). They are 14 inch long and it's very safe to grip them from the mouth. use one to hold it from the bottom jaw and with the other one just squash the upper jaw including the brain for few seconds and it will start shaking and dies within 2 mins.

if they are really big we used a plastic 3inch drain pipe slitted from one side so that you pass the line from the slit and then slide it over the morina in order to have only the head out of the pipe and it will be impossible for the morina to knot her self with your hand. and then u can use the pliers easily.

to be honest I really love killing does bastards Roll Eyes

Be carefull if opting for the shot gun, that the fish isn't in the boat, or you'll be swimming. LOL
