Charlie Worrath explains how to filet a walleye, and how to save the walleye cheeks.


Join MN professional fishing guide Charlie Worrath as he demonstrates how to filet a walleye. Walleye are one of the most sought-after and tastiest fish in northern Minnesota lakes. It is also one of the most precious fish caught, as conservation efforts including slot sizes, encouraging catch-and-release, and limit amounts determine which individual fish can be kept when caught. 

So if you want to include that beautiful walleye in your fish fry for friends and family, you'll want to be sure to clean the fish in the best way to conserve as much meat as possible. Charlie will demonstrate how to filet a walleye using a regular filet knife, which you will already have in your tackle box, and an electric knife, for quicker preparations. You might also be surprised to learn that walleye cheeks are a delicacy - and Charlie will explain how to remove the cheeks from the walleye.
