What's it called ? (fish cleaning)

6 posts in this topic

Is there a proper term for fish that have been scaled, headed and gutted? as in "do you fillet or ??? them". My dad called it "hog dressed" and I think the fish markets call it "in the round". I hate to have to go into a complete description every time someone asks.

Agree with Traveler. I think "Dressed" is the term your looking for.

This isn't answering your question, but "in the round" is unprepared product, such as trappers selling their catches "in the round" or fish markets selling their products "in the round." There is still preparation left to do when something is "in the round."

I agree with the "dressed" crowd. In the round is a fish that is gutted only.

A lot of these terms mean different things in different areas though.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
