So the wifey, our fish hound and I got out on Sunday for 2 hours to do some perching and we were not dissapointed. Goal was to fill a pail for a 17 person gathering and treat everyone with some fresh perch. Pail topped out with 66 between the two of us in an hour and a half and probably well over 100 released. Then the real work came of scaling and filleting to get 132 boneless and scaleless fillets. Took a while but got it done and the fish were a hit at the gathering. Need to hit the tribs and walk off the extra 5lbs I gained now.

Those look like very tasty fillets. Nice going. And nice use of the pressure washer.

Thanks guys. Than the pressure washer works fantastic to remove scales. At first I used to put two nails in the fish, one in the head and one in the tail but one on the tail does the trick as well. I use roofing nails. Saves getting the hands pricked and works amazing.

So dumb question - you cook with the skin on?

I always skin out every fillet so no need to worry about scales...not trying to be smarta$$...just wondering why the extra step of pressure washing.

I love the way the skin tastes and the extra crisp it gives off. It's an extra step which is a pain in the arse but I find it much more enjoyable when I eat it.
