Fish skinners – are they worth it?


Fishing is a wonderful activity that allows you to clear your mind of all the bad thoughts and get a clear view of the issues you are pondering about. I love going on a fishing trip because it’s the only time when I can relax and enjoy what nature has to offer.

However, I have a lot of friends that always complain about having to clean the fish they don’t release back in the water. Some anglers like to keep the fish even though they are fully aware that afterward, they will go through a long tedious process that consists in gutting and filleting the catch.  

The good news is that there is a magical solution to help you with this problem. The device, called fish skinner, is specially designed to make your life easier when preparing the fish. A product like enables the skinning as well as the de-ribbing stages so easy that you’ll be actually glad to do it.



I’m not saying to get rid of the fillet knives because they come in handy for many fishing enthusiasts. I’m just amazed because a difficult task gets easier with the help of a simple tool.

The skinner is simple to use. All you have to do is to plug in the fish skinner, face a fish rib side up and, using the fillet placed at an angle away from the fish skinner, run the tool over the filler until it reaches the top of the rib. Then, you’ll see how fast the ribs separate from the fillet, leaving only the meat. Also, if you flip over the fillet so that the skin is on top and then put the skinner on, you can remove fast and effortlessly the entire skin from the fish.

The best part comes now because the cleaning of this product takes no more than a few minutes. The unique design is incredibly useful when it comes to removing the dregs left after the skinning process. Basically, on the side of the device, you’ll notice a latch that can be unlocked making a quarter turn. After you unlock it, remove the spinning shaft and grab the blade. Then rinse it with water and pour a little soap. Let it dry and store it among other kitchen tools.

In addition, there’s no need to worry about putting back the elements because the grabbing blade can only be installed in one way. Once the blade is affixed, slide back the shaft and lock it using the same quarter turn. The fish skinner is ready to go back to work.

Since safety is crucial when cutting and skinning the fish, this instrument is equipped with a safety lever that prevents any incident.
