No mate, you just do a little cut at the top on one side of the spine angling your knife toward the head. Next, you put the knife against the backbone, whilst the fish is still on its side, and make an incision from the slice you made near the head, and take the knife down to the tail, say cutting approx 1cm into the fish. You then simply follow the shape of the rib cage with you knife. When you reach the pin bones, about half way through the fillet, simply use the tip to slice through them. Then follow the rib cage downwards, still working from head to tail, and slice off when you reach the bottom of the belly, all the way to the tail. Then repeat on the other side. The guts will be hanging out, but they will still be attached. However, if there is a fish inside, as in the video above, that will inevitably fall out, as it's not attached. Got it @@Saddam?

Ps, to remove the pin bones, simply get a pair of pliers, and pull them out. They only run for jot over half the body length, and there's never any bones in any fish tail, (except the monkfish!)

icki why release them all , so you are happy to over fish the sea stock but when there is more than enough pike in a river to feed a lot of people why is that wrong .

see I get so mad at people who also do not like to know where there food came from , a wild fresh pigeon or a force fedd chicken , a piece of southern fried chicken that may well have been washed in bleach to clean it or a phesent shot in the field feeding on wild berries and grubs fast clean home to the oven and eatern .

I would not go as far as eating puppy dogs but well I like to try new stuff

@@noddy, I know exactly what you mean mate, I was a fishmonger for five years! lol I was just trying t word the easiest way to fillet a fish straight away without having to gut them first. And for the record, you can freeze fish with guts in, but I wouldn't recommend it personally.

all through the 60/70/80/and early 90s, pike were the devil, some rivers had a kill pike signs on the banks, there was bountys and side pots on 2/300 peg matches for the anglers with the most pike killed during the match, the only reason its not done openly now, is purely down to the good work PAC UK have done, same things happening to zanda now, although for other (just as pointless) reasons, its still killing fish that have swam in our rivers and canals for decades needlessly!

Taking undersized fish is bad form imo, the sizes are in place to make sure that they can breed and maintain stock levels

what I am pointing to icki is , the sea fish are becoming over fished why not find other fish to eat , and I was not disrespecting your point of view , that is why I don't talk on religion or politics lol.

lol mate , we all have points of view and like I say just chatting about other stuff I do beside grow a lot of veg and fruit , and now getting back to growing some more special herbs .

but just a chat on what I like to eat , I was meaning that the sea fish are being so over fished that well may be we should look to other fish , I also love trout and salmon and would love to know places to fish for them , may be that others have fished , I went to minehead and down the the river lynn but never got to fish it

ok stay safe all

I eat an odd trout. If an trout or undersized trout is injured I'll eat it. When people use worms or worm hooks they injure a lot of trout. It's a bit cruel .

I wouldn't eat a stocked trout,or a pike. Unless I was starving.
