|Put your walleye on a hard surface. I use cardboard to make for an easy clean-up|
|Push your fillet knife into the fish at this location. Feel for the spine bones. Position your knife on the outside of the bones|
|Fillet the walleye along the back of the fish. Stop once you can't feel the bone anymore|
|Push the knife through and fillet down to the tail|
|Repeat process on the other side making another fillet.|
|Cut both of the fillets off of the walleye. One should looks like this.|
|Use a cap to skin the fish. Push the cap down and fillet the meat away from the skin.|
|Now it is time for the zipper trick. Note the dark pink area in the middle of the fillet. The bones run along this pink line.|
|Take your knife and make a cut on both sides of the pink bone area.|
|Once you have made the cut, pull the meat away from the bone area with your fingers. Make sure to do both sides.|
|You will end up with two pieces of meat per fillet.|
Try this method the next time you catch some walleye. The zippering method is a simple and effective way to removing all of the bones from your catch.
