We get some pretty nice rockfish down off Cape Mendocino, 6-8 pound fish are not uncommon and they have rib bones that will take the edge off a knife in a hurry.

The way I've always cut fish was to take the whole side off leaving the skin connected to the carcass at the tail then take off the skin and then cut off the rib portion, you end up with a nice clean boneless skinless fillet with 3 cuts per side.

This works fine for fish under 5 pounds, not so easy for the toads we get here. I grabbed the wife's serrated bread knife the last time I cut fish and boy did it go through those ribs! She still doesn't know and I ain't gonna tell her. Lol

However I did go on ebay and buy one of the serrated round nose 9.75 in slicers for a few bucks which also ought to do the trick.

Dexter Russell wooden handle and Stainless soft handle . For big boned fish I prefer the 6" wide blade . I have also used the 7" serated soft handle .I cary at least 6 knifes , 2 steels , and one saw for collering/sword removal. A steaper angle on your blade won't dull as fast . I run my blade over a steel a few times every couple of fish .

I have a 10" Forschner and a couple Rapala filet knives in 9" & 6".

The Forschner is for slabs & the thin Rapalas are good for fine trimming.

When I have the $$$ I usually just have the Deckies clean 'em, tho.

I got my first Forschner 40130 last season and still do not want to try to sharpen it! I have a Russell and have had others in years past. Oddly, the knife I have used more than any other... a Buck 119 sheath knife! It never stains or rusts, I have no trouble putting a great edge on it, though that takes practice and a good stone. It has cleaned Yellowtail, Tunas, Halibut, Rockfish, most everything I have ever caught.
