How to fillet a fish

Here’s a quick vid taken on my phone by my mate Lloyd, after a brilliant morning session on the kayak.

They are also brilliant sport on light tackle, even though most are winched aboard with heavier tuna gear or on bungees. Check out the smile on Catch sponsored angler Flyn Jack with an albacore he caught on a kingfish jig in the Coromandel to see that they can be great fun.
