Well the 2 channels I got today were a little small for me to take home so I took 6 gills home and filleted em per Kyfisherman's instructions in the library. I gotta say them little dudes are delicious. I can see it takes some practice to do a good job and/or a serrated filet knife. If anyone here has not tried em you should. It probably would have been easier too if they were a little larger.:wink: Oh ya and I put the heads in a ziplock for bait later this week!
