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.

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.

      I'll bet this lure will get a lot of bites! It may even catch a few fish! Does look interesting. Cliff
