use a bag. last time i pitched the fruit directly in to the "secondary", it clogged the bejeezus out of my siphon and made it generally difficult to manage upon bottling time.

Will this wreck the bag?? I have a bag that i use for partial mash's, but I don't want to wreck it......Will the red color and smell come out after?? Or should I jsut use like 3 diff. muslin bags??

I'm not an expert by any means, but im fairly certain rinsing it out with some water afterwards will render it perfectly fine to reuse for mashing later.
