How-to Filet: Tautog

Anglers on the East Coast wait in anticipation all year for Toggin’ season, and for good reason. These trophy fish are not only fun to target, but offer outstanding table fare as well. Check out “Toggin’ Bro”: Insight into Fishing for Tautog for more info on these highly sought after sportfish.

In this video, BD Outdoors Contributor Matt Rissell demonstrates how to filet a Tautog using the Dexter Outdoors Dextreme 7 inch filet knife. This knife is a great option for filleting those fish with thick skin or tough scales, as it allows you to keep your fillet edge sharp by providing a second serrated edge to cut through portions of the fish that would otherwise dull your knife.
