Gutting Flounders/ Filleting Flaties
Posted 11 March 2010 - 06:03 PM
can anyone give me any tips on gutting these thin buggers have attempted it just cutting down behind the head and down on an a angle past the guts of the fish, then flipping the fish and slicing down either side of the guts and scrapping it out, any tips would be appreciated
another quick query, whats the best way to fillet a flathead

There are some good videos showing how to fillet flathead on YouTube.
Do a search for “filleting flathead” – there are heaps.
As for flounder, I’ve caught (and cleaned) a few over the years. You can see some of my best here: My flounder pbs
Flounder, along with whiting are probably my favourite fish to eat.
However, I can’t easily put it into words how to best clean/gut them. Now if I had one in front of me… One thing is, if it’s a female, make sure you pull out the roe from under the backbone - it can be a tricky bit of surgery.
