A better way.

This little gadget cost 99 cents at Toledo Tackle. With it I'd be finished the whole fish before he even got one side done. Plus as you can see in the picture the scales are flying everywhere. This little tool keeps the scales right on the tool and table. I use mine in the house when I only have a few fish to clean.

Small world "T", we make a trip at the end of January each year to meet with a bunch of Crappie.Com friends. We do a little fishing, a lot of eating, and sometime a lot of "story" telling. We stay at San Miguel's.

Here you guys go.. 1" dowl one end cut at an angle.. open a bottle of beer and keep the cap.. drill a small hole in it, get a small screw and screw it on the angled end... if you want to dress it up,, open up another bottle of beer and glue it on the flat end...
Cost, broken broom handle, 2 beers, one small screw and a little time...

"T" some of the guys brave the ride across the lake in the cold weather and some just trailer to the Texas side and launch near the coop. I don't trailer my boat up there but do take a back seat in someone elses boat if a seat is open. I go mostly for the great friends and good food. A few years back we gathered on the weekend that it snowed and no one got to fish but we still ate well.

Ok guys, just now saw this topic and can't resist. Why scale a fish? I gave that up when I saw my first fish filleted. (however you spell it). I can have one filleted before you can get it scaled and I'm done and you still have work to do? Plus, I never did like eathing fish bones....so someone tell me why you don't fillet?

Bob I cannot speak for everyone but, smaller fish like perch and bream are (to me) easer to scale, and I have fond memories as a kid eating the best part.. the fins.. its like a Cajun potato chip..

Agreed Zook,

A good mess of fried whole bream is hard to beat. Those fins fried crispy are the best. Just like small whole catfish. We skin them and fry them whole. We filet larger fish but like the small ones whole.
