    Hey @Danny sharp ones are best !!
    With respect to gurnard I reckon just leave the skin on!!
    It makes for easy filleting and with no scales on the skin it crisps up good & its really tasty
    Did you load up on them today @VC, or to many kids tangles ??
    There heaps out there at the moment !!

    I use this one and it is fantastic. VICTORY Fish Filleting Knife Stainless 22cm | Trade Me. I have used hundreds of filleting knives and filleted thousands of fish (maybe a slight exaggeration but it is lots) and this is the best I've come across.

    Did we ever! kids were catching the buggers 2 at a time... we threw back anything under about 35cm and still landed 36!

    As for knives yes a sharp one is best, for smaller fish like gurnard a commercial "trimming knife" which is actually the same knife as many butchers boning knife is good but for everything else I like a flexible 10-12" blade with a bull nose end on it.

    Cheers, today i got limits of snapper, John Dory, cod and kahawai. Skippy or albies were everywhere which I figured was late in the piece.
    I'll look at Victory knives again. I've recently moved house and I've lost a heap of gear. Blunt knives suck.

    I've got a long Rapala stainless filleting knife which is good and a svord carbon steel which is good also. I tend to peel the gurnard and cook them hole cause the centre bones are a pain!

    Have a look here matto they are no more difficult to remove than any other fish.
