Excellent find, thanks !!

Talk about sharp knives !! On the Snapper one, he filleted the tail with one swish!

I would have like to see him fillet a 25.3 lb snapper instead of that guppy...

Also under tools, below the fish on that website, there is a video of how to sharpen your knife using a wetstone and sharpner/steel ...

Cheers!

Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to Yak fish and you won't hear from him most weekends :-P

That was an interesting way ,pretty awesome what he ended up with... But it did seem to be the long way of doing it.

i would hazard a guess that he was slowing down for the camera. also interesting that the majority of the fish were gutted. although it probably doesnt make that much of a difference.

i was a self taught filleter and once i started to get a reasnable amount of fish i asked a friend who used to work on the niwa boats to show me how to do it properly. certanly made things easier. while up at the naki classic me and two others were up filliting our catch and each of us was doing it differently

Lovely Gurnard. Never take the skin off they taste so much better with the skin on.

Heads and frames make the best fish stock too. Alround better much than snapper IMO.
Shame I don't really catch em :lol:

Here's a couple of clips from the 2011 Taranaki Kayak Fishing Classic competition.

A local fish processing company (sorry, forget the name but thank you) donated their time, ice, and skills to fillet people's fish for a gold coin donation to the local coastguard.
The first clip is the winning snapper. The second clip is my (not winning) snapper. No sound on the second clip.
This guys good. (sorry again, I didn't get his name) and his technique is very different to mine. Needless to say, I'll be giving it a go.

I 2nd that..WOW that's fast!... an never get my knives that sharp...after watching that I could do with another lesson from Rob... he gave the guys at the Hibiscus club a lesson on filleting at a club night in the early days of the club, that must be more than 5 years ago now but I still remember it and "some" of what he showed us.. he was also bloody quick with the gurnard...

here's another one I found recently on snapper... good for those that have no idea

I liked the look of this method Jason so I tried it on Thursdays haul.
I did the job in half the time it would have taken (with my old method).
Fillets were slightly rough but that will improve with practice.
Thanks for posting the vid :y:
