Marsh Man Masson video: The absolute best way to fillet speckled trout

Make quick work of a limit — and waste no meat in the process

Speckled trout are Louisiana’s most popular coastal fish. They’re more plentiful in the Bayou State than anywhere else on the planet, and that means if you’re an angler down here, you probably regularly put a whole bunch on ice.

And when you’ve got a box full of speckled trout to clean, you want to do it as quickly and efficiently as possible.

In this video, I show you the method that works best for me. All it requires is a power source, an electric knife and some fast hands. Practice the technique, and you’ll easily run through your limit in less than 10 minutes.
