Step 10: Snap the tail

Firmly grasp the tail and it should easily snap off, as long as there is no skin attached.
will it work for catfish?
I've never caught a catfish so I wouldn't know, sorry.
could I clean a Pickerel like this too?
If it's similar in shape as a salmon it would probably work.
Outstanding! I like learning new ways of doing things and this is pretty darn good!. I also liked the spoon taped to the handle. <br> <br>Thanks much! <br> <br> <br>I'm wondering if this will work with really, really big Kings. Cutting that spine is an SOB on them.
I've done it on Springs and they are fair size, mind you not as big as the Kings up in Alaska but I'd say it would probably work.
This is a VERY good tip my friend. Does it work with all fishes? <br> <br>Thank you for sharing :)
One time we had a small trout in our gill net and using the same principles it worked on it so I'd say yes if the fish were similar to a salmon in shape.
