In my quest for knowledge to assist me in my trip to Alaska this summer, I began by asking where to fish, then how, then about the bears, and now I am assuming that I will be able to catch a few fish, so my next question is.....How do you like to clean your catch? I am famillir with filleting big red fish from the bayous as well as speckled trout and flounder, so I don't need a lesson, but I was wondering if anyone prefers steaks over fillets. Perhaps you have a prefered method for certain kinds of salmon? I will be pursuing sockeye and silvers. Thanks for everyone's help. This forum is a great resource!
