    I used to do them like that until i got an electric knife now i just cut in at the head till i get to the spine and follow the back bone all the way to the tail flip over the fillet and cut the ribs right out. Practice on a few perch as to not ruin a walleye after messing up two or three fish you should be fine.

    Having the skin on the fillet prior to removing the rib cage makes it easier for sure.

    This is walleye, but you get the idea. With the arthritis in my hands I had to give up on the electric fillet knifes. A sharp fillet knife is less stress on your hands. For me anyways.

    The bones left come out when zippering the mud line.

    I don't like any bones in my fish.. Little or big. With a " regular" filet knife ya go "under" em with my electric I make a "v" and get the mudvein and those bones out while still on skin then skin it
