Yesterday, we pulled out about 20 lbs in channel cats, but we had fished till well past 10 PM... I have class today at 7 AM, but must leave my house around 6.30 AM. There is about 6 fish in total. Goal: Make a successful breakfast (grilled) starting around 5.30 AM. I can skin them fine, it just takes a while. It usually goes faster with my friends helping, but they're not at the house and will more than likely not be awake. Grilling isn't hard. I've got my recipe rock hard and solid. Filleting them, I'm alright at, but it's kind of shakey. I can do it, it's just that the fillets literally look like they went through a fan. It's all misshaped and I tend to leave more meat on the bones than I should... It's because my friend is usually the one who fillets for our group. Skinning is pretty easy and straight forward, but I'm on a time constraint and I'm not trying to spend a lot of time skinning them. You know? Do you all have any tips to make this process faster and easier for me? I appreciate anything you can provide me.
