See A Video On How To Clean Or Fillet Your Sheepshead or Convict Fish
After getting some questions on how to clean these GREAT eatin’ fish, I decided to post some information on how to clean or fillet your Sheepshead or Convict fish.
Prior to catching my first sheepshead a few years ago I hadn’t cleaned or filleted one either. So one of the first things I did was Google it and sure enough I found this great video on how to fillet them. I have been doing it this way ever since.
Helpful as always, is to have a sharp knife. Since I have never owned an electric knife, I keep a little sharpener handy. This one works GREAT!

Play the following video to see a good way to clean or fillet your Sheepshead fish! I like to wear a glove with these buggers. I know from experience those dorsal fins are nasty sharp! 😳 Some guys keep a shears in the boat with them and snip the tips off to keep from gettin’ poked.
