Yes you'll have to bleed the clutch system. What might not be obvious, is that the master cylinder, where it bolts to the firewall, is tilted. The one end is higher and no matter how much you bleed it from the slave, or what method, there's going to always be squishy clutch because of that trapped air at the top of the master. You have to disconnect the master cylinder, and hang it from the hood with a bungie pointing down, pump by hand while buddy is watching tube on slave bleeder for air bubbles. Or just take the whole assembly out if you want and do it on bench. Disconnecting it from under the steering wheel is a neck breaker, but no getting around it.
