Looks like a lot of work...

Ronco if you filleted 254,520,532,574,463,414,674,907 fish a year for 40 years you would get good at it too!

Strange but I like filleting. The entire process took less than an hour. Super freekin sharp knife is the key-

I somewhat enjoy the process myself...and I def agree with a super sharp knife... I usually hit the iron during the process as well.

and a thin blade...
Well Duh-::)

I use the cheap wooden handle rapala u can buy at any wally world. The little plastic sharpener works great but it only lasts a couple years. So I just buy a new sharpener then.

I sharpen b4, during and after.

Nice haul. I use the same one. Works well. More operator error for me

I prefer an Electric knife for heavy scaled fish if I'm skinning them, they do a good fast job.
No reason to scale them if your skinning them but I'm gonna scale and try this whole fish method on the next ones I get, less waste and I'm betting great tasting!! Panama style, the skin's the best part.

This picture is just before they go in the hot oil.

I normally just use my electric as well. But Slayer just has the wooden handle Rapala. I've tried filleting rough scaled fish with just a fillet knife, and it dulls them fast. So I was just wondering how he does it with just a knife.

Never have any trouble filleting perch or wallys or crappies. Knife doesnt get much duller than when filleting trouties.
