One of Mike’s favorite things when we are at the lake is, of course, fishing. And one of my favorite things is eating fresh fish. We are blessed to be on a pristine lake and both the fishing and the eating are fantastic! Mike fillets all of the fish making it easy to cook, and easy to eat.
The most important tool you will need to fillet a fish is a sharp fillet knife (like this one). Mike’s has a 7 1/2″ blade. A cutting board and a fork are the only other pieces of equipment you will need. Keep in mind that your first few tries may not get perfect results, but keep trying – it’s definitely worth the effort.
The fish in our example is a Largemouth Bass.
While filleting a fish takes practice, the process is quite simple. And eating fish without any bones is a delight!
BTW, keep the heads in a bag in the freezer to make fish stock. It’s rich in iodine and collagen and super delicious.
Are there any fishermen in your family?
