Apart from sizziling ants with a magnifing glass the only animals Ive ever had to dispatch have been mice and Ive never consumed them :puker

So this is all a new world for me

Just a quick query...

My partner is a keen reef fisherman and self taught filleter and found it interesting that you remove the guts through the head. He slits the underside of the fish to remove them, then takes off head prior to filleting, otherwise the technique is very similar...
Just wondering if there is a difference to the end result depending on how you de-gut??
Probably a silly question!!

(He says his biggest problem for him is getting a knife long enough to fillet the fish he catches :P typical fisherman! ;) )

I love my fishing.... Am seriously obsessed and have been for over 30 years.... I leave the head on when filletting as it acts as a handle to hang onto...

When I kill my fish I always bleed them... When fishing out of my boat it's usually a case of breaking a gill and throwing into an ice slurry... When land based or in the Yak, I will break the neck and back to stop the fish trashing around...

By the way, some of my most favourite eating fish are species that are usually rejected... Mullet, Blackfish, Trevally and believe it or not - Slimey Mackerel...

Hard to beat a big slab of crumbed Kingfish though.... :thumbright

Cheers,

Nath..
