SKINZIT POWERED FISH SKINNER
« on: February 09, 2017, 11:17:12 AM »
There was a front page article in the Omaha World Herald this morning on the amazing success of the invention brought to market by two NEBRASKA brothers that created a fish skinner that has taken the fishing world by storm.  The website has some videos on how easy the thing skins and debones fillets of all kinds of scaled fish.... fishskinner.com  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I suppose if one has a lot of fish to skin $150 would be worth it.

Yeah, unfortunately ol' Paints His Shirt Red would say the same thing about me as he said about Jeremiah Johnson...."You fish poorly," so I probably wouldn't need one.  They'd be great for somebody who catches lots of 'em, though. :shrug:

Yes it would.  Watching the video I wondered if it would make Swiss steak with a little modification?  Years ago I worked part time at a meat market and they had me running poor cuts of meat through a small machine that had a roller with a lot of teeth on it.

I saw this a week or so ago somewhere and I wasn't really impressed.  What the video barely shows is the guy doing all the work, i.e, actually fileting the fish. The way I filet a fish there's no skin to take off after it's fileted.  Don't cut all the way through at the tail, flip the filet over, and run the filet knife between the meat and the skin.  Rib bones just get cut off since there's no meat there anyway.

That fish sure looked good! Practice would probably be your friend with that tool.

There are a LOT of YouTube videos showing people using these things and everybody seems to like them.  :shrug:    I don't know anything about them........I'm just your lowly reporter. :coffee:

  Looks like a real time saver skinning,  but I'll bet it needs more cleaning than a filet knife.
