    Re: Pin bone Removal?

    Tried the new method over the weeknd. Worked great. Think there was only one bone in the 3 trout I filleted. Of course I got it. Good thing the trout were all over 16" though otherwise might not have had much to eat. As it was the wife said the fillets look like eels. Well not all of them. Thanks for the info.

    Saw an elderly gentleman cleaning trout at the cleaing station. He was using a short bladed fillet knife. He took the pin bones out with the fillet still attached to the trout. Pretty interesting. Wish I could remember how he did it. His friend said he stopped trying to do it that way a long time ago.

    The best tweezers for this are the "scissors" type (I got mine from "Vermont Country Store"), with the loop handles. No slipping and sliding while you're pulling. And, no one mistakes them for their own.... :P

    I have a display of seldom seen and little known trout gear as well as a lot of antique reels, cat gut leaders, flies and such. I'm going to have to acquire one of those for my collection.

    Re: Pin bone Removal?

    Oh yeah, You think they look bad pulling them out try a "Wonder Boner". I used one for a long time til I learned to filet trout. Its this metal(horizontal) ring welded to a vertical rod. You cut off the head and tail and force the spine through the ring and it rips the bones out of the meat and then you split the fish and have 2 filets. Talk about catfood....this thing ripped out every bone, not just the pin bones. Snoose really loves the one he got. LOL [smiley=rotfl2.gif]

    Re: Pin bone Removal?

    I locate the pin bones by running my hand against the grain (up towards the back) Then I cut under the bones at an angle (start at the bottom and angle the knife along the bones ). I then make a cut straight down above the bones cutting out a triangle. I don't lose that much meat, at all, and it makes a little trough to hold any marinade or sauce I use when cooking.
    If Froggie bites into a bone or finds one in her mouth thats it for that dinner. I had to learn to get them out!
