I remember looking this up last ice season and it really improved my fillet technique on fish. (Less of mess)

My speed is not even there yet. I may need to sharpen my knife cause getting through the ten pin bones, is a pain.

Great educational video!!!!!!!

That was excellent, both part 1 and 2. Thank you. Does it work as well on the small gills I catch?

Yes it does!....5 inchers are not out of the question. There are a few procedures that I do not show in these vids. 1 is the fact that when I clean fish, they are usually 8-20 hrs old....stiff, and thoroughly dead. I store the fresh dead gills in the bottom drawer of my fridge....to some, this is known as the crisper...to me, this is known as the bluegill hold. (some of you married guys may not have this option). Secondly, and just prior to cleaning, I lay the victims down on a few pages of newspaper, and cover with a few pages of newspaper. This helps in the removal of slime, and makes for better control at a time when precision cuts are vital.

This entire technique was comprised of a half dozen or so methods that have been shown to me over the years...the last of which was the use of of the latex glove. The end result is solid, meaty, bloodless fillets that I ultimately store in a large colander, inside an even larger bowl, covered by a few paper towels, and sealed in by a large plate or cellophane wrap.

This method allows me to enjoy fresh fish for approx 4 days when temp settings are at 34 deg. :D

Thanks for the video! I'm a fishing newbie and filleted my first gills today following these videos. While I wasn't as fast or as efficient in getting all the meat, I have to say that this technique worked great. There is no way I would have been successful without watching these clips first.

Muskymod, Your technique works awesome.

About a week ago, I brought home some gills for the first time in about 10 years. After thoroughly messing up my first attempt, I then hoped onto youtube, and watched a video. I then got back to work. It took me another fish or two to really get the hang of it. But this technique works really well. I actually didn't see your video until now, but watched a later posted video that used your same technique.

Absolutely love the fact that you don't have the guts and blood all over. Great video.
