  • "Back in the day" I had a cousin with two boys and they (and sometimes me) were fishing just about every minute they weren't working, going to school, or sleeping. We followed basically the same routine. One thing different we always did was skin the fish first. To each his own, but seems to me like there would be a good possibility of leaving good meat on the skin. Nice video though !

  • Great job, video bro!

  • Thank You - as impressed with your parenting as much as your filet skills. Keep it going.

  • You should cut the cheeks off the bass. Best part of many fish.

  • Pretty good but you are missing great meat up by the neck by using that straight cut at beginning, Been catching and cleaning fish 48 years here everything from BG, Crappie, Largemouth, smallmouth & striped bass, catfish, salmon, seabass, dorado, marlin, sailfish, halibut, lingcod, and thousands upon thousands of pacific rockfish which are built like bass but much sharper & sometimes poisonous spines. Would like to offer some tips. Adjust to cutting in an approximate half circle behind the pectoral fin but angled slightly toward the head, to get that good meat by the neck. Cut the semi-circle down to the spine bone but not through. When we are talking about 20 fish it adds up especially the BG's. Another method is just turn the (very) sharp edge of the knife toward the tail after making the semi-circle, just cut through the rib bones (use sawing motion) all the way to the tail, leaving just a little skin at the end attached. Flop the filet over then cut the skin off as shown except with a really sharp knife can be done in one motion by pulling the skin back opposite from the meat. Then cut around the rib cage and discard is with the other offal. You will appreciate these techniques when faced with 20+ to clean, much faster and more meat/less waste. That's the way it's done, if doubts check how pro deckhands do it. The best can clean a whole fish in the time it took to make that first cut and leave practically zero waste. Blessings to you and your boys pastor, fish on!. RC

  • That was so awesome, for more than just the fish tutorial. Great dad, raising great young men.

  • Start at the head like you did, filet all the way through, follow down to the tail, but don't cut all the way through, stop before you go through at the tail, then just flop the filet over (not the entire fish) with it still connected to the tail, then you filet back from the tail to the head of the fish. Much easier to hang onto the fish without cutting all the way through past the tail like you did. You waste less meat this way too. Good job teaching your boys how to be men.
