Wasted a lot of meat. The knife needs to be sharp, it ain't a saw! Electric knife and I can fillet that fish, both sides, and cut the ribs out in less than 30 seconds.


The United States used to be "One Nation Under God". What happened?

I thought you did fine MathGeek, but I do think an electric knife would help you out.

Yup, a lot of meat wasted. And the bigger the fish you clean the more meat you would waste.

Electric knife and do it just like any any other fish. Only time I skin em is if they're small 12-14" channels that I'm fryin up whole.

Besides the guy not really knowing what he was doing , never bring the knife towards you. Always cut away from your body. Especially if you are having to saw because besides not knowing how to filet a fish, you don’t know how to sharpen a knife. Good way to get hurt

We don't. Tasted great.

I agree that there is room for improvement on technique. Why don't folks who can do better make their own videos to help folks get better?

This forum is a tough crowd MathGeek. You gotta have thick skin!..if your going to post an instructional video amongst professional fishing guides and hard core catfisherman then be prepared to be critiqued pretty hard. I understand you were probably making the video for the casual fisherman but some of these folks get paid to fish everyday and lessons usually aren’t free. If you really want to learn from one of them then book a trip. Alot of us guys on the forum can’t even post a pic much less figure out how to post video (including myself). I wouldn’t take it the wrong way.


There is a fine line between fishing and floating around like an idiot!!
