Do any of you clean the fish you catch?  I attempted it (after many years) over the 4th of July weekend and did an average job...I started under the gills to cut the head off, then cut off the fins (left the tail), sliced it open from the "hole" up and pushed all the guts out with my thumb.  I used a fishing glove to hold it down while I did this.  After all the cleaning I used a scaler to get all the scales off.  Was this the correct method?  Also, how the heck do you fillet?  I've never done it.

I don't clean fish. My husband does all of this. :) I have watched him alot, but don't like it much. He also fillets all of his fish. Can't tell you how but good luck. He also cooks the fish!!! I just make the extras and clean up the mess. Works good for us!
