This is true but the trick is to cook the fish properly and not to overcook it. When cooked properly the meat flakes right off the bones, leaving the bones behind. If overcooked the rib bones break right off the spine along with the meat. Once you get good at that, you'll probably change your mind when you see how much meat gets wasted during the usual fillet method for perch.

Especially on smaller ones. I tried that method this week, not as fast as he was, but results were nice IMO. Heating the deep fryer as we speak, hoping it flakes as it should. Even still, use that method, then do your fillets from a nice clean fish... seems easier to do to me. But then, Im no expert.

That is how I do my walleyes. It is awesome. I'l do a pictoral this spring when I get some fillets. All you need is a fillet knife. 100% no bones and no wasted meat.

Check out this tool. I wonder how it would work for perch. I know it works for trout, I've seen it work at a sportman show and they used a trout, but if it works on perch.....

it says fish up to 3lbs, just gotta skin it at that point. I still would rather have the fish open in order to inspect the meat.

I love how at the very end of the video the dudes are shown holding some nice supper, and then the last credit goes "remember to practice catch n release"...

Make up your mind buddy!

Otherwise, I gotta try this trick for sure.

I had the same thought. Two minutes on how to extract the most meat possible from a tiny perch. And then a disclaimer at the end about catch and release...

Its kinda like the Kid Rock - Jack Daniels commercial out there right. I think its called Stag or something. At the very end they tack on the "Be Responsible, Don't Drink and Drive". Yeah right!
