"Pin Bones" Do you cut them out?
« on: June 17, 2018, 12:30:37 PM »
I was wondering if you guys cut out the "pin bones"
I never have, but, I have had a few stuck in my teeth.
I think I'm going to start doing this......

my wife first started us doing that...  after we cleaned the fish they went to her and as she rinsed them she would cut them out..  so we just do it that all the time now...
a bad day of fishing is still better than a good day at work!!

Yup, I just run the blade entire length and end up with 2 pieces. I also leave that skin on. Like the crunch.

Yep, I have been taking the pin bones out for many many years. I would get them stuck in between the gum and tooth in my mouth and it hurts.

Yeah, me too. I give some away to friends & family so they may end up being ate by some little people. Don't really want them having issues with them, done it for years as well

Good info for folks,thanx for posting,however we never keep larger fish where the pin bones don't cook out such as walleyes 18"s and up,then its a good idea.Crappies/ sunfish and perch? These little bones cook right out but to each they're own.

take a look at the video again,pin bones ride on the top of the rib cage and below the loin,run your finger along the loin and you'll feel these little bones.

I go by the size of the bones in the fish...
A nice big walleye or lake trout I take them out.   

A bluegill or little walleye, don't bother. 
You can also pull them out with a tweezer or long nose pliers like the tv chefs do.

Fry 'em up with the skin, slap 'em on a bun with lettuce and tartar sauce, and chomp away.
