How to Fillet Fish
« on: September 04, 2007, 14:38 »
My mates Fish, Gareth and myself caught these off the rocks the other day.



I got my camera out to record how Fish did the filleting. I reckon that the many photographs that follow should be all that you need to know how to fillet fish in the future.






































This is how Fish butterfly filleted a mackerel.

Very nice.

If I send you a fish and a stamp, can you fillet it and post it back to me?  

Always looks like it's done 6 rounds with the cat by the time I get the bones out.
Oops a daisy!

Fish makes it look so easy.

I'll give it a try seeing as I've got some fish from Brixton Market from a friend, lol! Been putting it off since yesterday  :oops: . Was contemplating freezing them and dealing with them at a later date  :shock: .

Cheers Bodger :wink:

Not going to send you shopping WG :lol:

1) A pollack
2) A bass ( must admit that the dorsal spines are a bit hidden )
3) Mackerel
4) a really small pollack that died under anaesthetic  :oops:

PS Munti, no problem with the grip, its always heads off first  :lol:

that (1st fish) pollack is a cracking fish size from the shore mate.

But I think the BASS is to small and looks undersize mate.
the legal limit for keeping a bass is 36cm
here a link for size limits in uk waters

Sanity is just a playground for the un-imaginative

Only once the last tree has died, the last river poisoned and the last fish eaten will we realise that you cant eat money

Worzel catches big brown trout on the River Teste and fillets them.  He tells me it is essential to have a really sharp knife, longish thin bladed is best  :!:

It helps if it's dead first. They struggle a bit otherwise and you will end up with mangled fish. :lol:
Did it really tell you to do THAT on the packet?

Seeds are SOWN, planting's for plants (and bulbs & tubers)!

They were all dead and had been frozen too!

English is my 3rd language DD. Bear with me! I meant ruined, rather than mutilated, though it IS mutilated :shock: . (Had to look up mangled on dictionary.com just now)  :oops:  . Made fish stock out of the very meaty carcasse and the heads. The carcasse meat will make a soup as well. no waste here!

I do wish I could catch my own fish  :(

Filleting a fish which has been frozen / thawed would be very difficult.  Much easier done fresh
