How to fillet panfish

Postby CrappieMagnet » Tue Mar 13, 2007 7:07 pm

Found this while surfing the net...thought I'd post it up.

Filleting is method used by most anglers to prepare their catch. A sharp knife with a flexible blade is practically all you will need. The six-inch blade is the most popular. The quickest and simplest way to fillet fish is shown below.

Image

Cut behind the pectoral fin straight down to the backbone. Angle the cut towards the top of the head.

Image

Run the knife along one side of the backbone. The knife should scrape the rib bones without cutting them.

Image

Push the knife through the flesh near the vent just behind the rib bones. Cut the fillet free at the tail.

Image

Cut the flesh carefully away from the rib cage. To save flesh, the blade should graze the bones.

Image

Remove the first boneless fillet by cutting through the skin of the stomach area.

Image

Turn the fish over. Remove the second fillet using the same filleting technique.

Image

Rinse fillets quickly with cold water or wipe with paper towels. Save head and skeleton for stock.

Image

Skin fillets, if desired. Hold the tail with your fingertips and cut between flesh and skin with a sawing motion.

No I got this from a friend of mine. I do it this way but with an electric knife. I will also do catfish the same way unless I am going to fry them whole.

I skin a catfish before slicing off the fillet. Since their skin is so thin, it's a little tougher to slice the fillet from the skin after the fact...especially if your knife is a little dull.
