This woman has some serious filleting skills. One of the best ways to tell whether someone is good at something is if they make it look easy, and this woman makes filleting look as easy as finding snow in Alaska. A methodical cut here, a long slice there, it almost seems as if she had finished before she even started.

To be fair, many anglers consider halibut to be an easier fish to fillet—while not as easy to get all the meat out of—and the fish shown here is on the smaller side. We’d really like to see her tackle a bigger halibut next time.

What do you think? Can you do better?

  1. Uhmmmmm, isn’t this how all of us experienced deep sea fishermen do it? Am I missing something here? Are ya all new or something?

  2. He’s right, and he is for sure faster as he takes one side at a time…by far the fastest way. She is only average for Alaskan deckhands, in filletting time. Good quality, but it had better be. But the fastest I ever saw, a young Quilleute Indian about 16 years old, in Neah Bay took one side at a time, fileted a ‘Butt in about 20 seconds flat. I’d almost rather watch her cut fish…but i didn’t see anything special, and I ran 6 man boats in Southeast and cut my own fish.
