    That was painful to watch. 12 minutes to do one fish, and he butchered one of the fillets missing the meat on the outside of the rib cage. I hope his momma gets him an electric knife for Christmas and he learns to pull the cheeks free by hand after the horseshoe cut.

    I stopped it at 4:20 mark when he said he peels the cheek from the “hide” of the fish.

    Thanks to you early adopters, you saved me the seemingly painful 12 minutes. Haha.

    I'll skip it, thanks for the warning! I can cut up a dozen walleye in about 12 minutes if I don't stop to drink some beer and I had some money on the timer. I've never regretted going to electric knifes....

    If it took me that long to filet a walleye, I don't think I would be making instructional videos. Watching them maybe, but not making them.

    Dont worry about it. If you want I can change the title of the thread to "how not to fillet a walleye"
