    They eat them whole without scaling them? How big? Cut heads off and gut?

    I had a college roommate who introduced me to frying small bream whole and I mean, literally, WHOLE. These bream were 2-3 inches long and you could catch as many as you wanted on a certain lake, it was overpopulated with bream. I was surprised that they are edible WHOLE, lol. I just remember it tasting normal even though we were eating head, guts, fins, everything. But again, very small.

    the video was very good, i saw a you tube video (cleaning crappie faster than most) that defies description .The guy in this video can clean a crappie in 15 or 20 seconds says a electric knife is to slow! Check it out (cleaning crappie, faster than most).

    think I have seen that one and to be sure if i am not under the scrutiny of the camera coupled with trying to describe the event and sitting instead of standing , i most certainly can move a little quicker .
    i think about 8 or 10 years ago there was a debate elsewhere on the subject and some were saying how slow a real knife is and etc etc
    my wife timed me on start to toss the carcass at around 45 seconds ,maybe under that ...been a while back
    in the end it isn't about how long it takes for me though and as stated , around a dozen or less is my normal limit to clean anyway

    practice makes perfect ,sometimes its just a simple thing that makes all the difference .
    fresh/live fish can make it really tough ,chilled dead fish are way better .
    the cold dead fish are much firmer and rigid and lots easier to fillet .

    Just like with anything else put the time, practice and the want to have good results using a knife becomes easy and fast enough.....
    While making cuts all you have to do is think of the bone structure of the fish and follow it.....
    Cold fish is definitely easier to do and working with a sharp knife is important also..... And remember regardless of the cost of a knife it's only going to stay sharp as the owner keeps it.....
    The fileting process don't have to be done in seconds..... just like you didn't catch them in seconds..... Enjoy turning out some great filets..... What's the rush......
    REGARDLESS OF HOW MANLY YOU THINK YOU ARE WEARING A PFD CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE.....

    I go to Cabela's to window shop on the weekends I have Drill for the National Guard as it's only about 30 miles from where I do drill. Walking thru the fishing stuff I came across these knives. $4.99 each picked up one of each color Orange and Green. One color might work better than the other. Now I need some time to catch something to try them out on.
