    I'll check that out. If skinning I just do them like a cod knife the first bit then rip it off.

    I like them skin on too., generally do about half and half.

Then cut behind the head until you break the bone then grapping the head you just snap the gurnard in half, , pulling the skin off in one good pull and the guts just comes out as well. So you now have a skinless, gutless fish and its done in seconds. Check out Utube, shows you there and seems to work well on the ones ive tried it on
    This guy is painful to watch

    I would have filleted and skinned in that time easy.

    "the scott rea project" vid skins it a bit quicker but then fillets badly with with pin bones in and calls them boneless fillets

    Up early yesterday to catch up with VC, loaded gear into the boat and headed off sharking. down the chanel and out into open water to find a nasty wee chop. So we eased up and watched the sounder for fish sign, when we hit on some we dropped the hook line and headed out a bit futher to another patch of marks and dropped anchor and burley. Set out our rods and set to yarning...we checked baits and eventually watched dawn break and the fishing come on ..NOT ..to much fresh water the skipper says so over to pick up the hook line and with the sea easing we put the hammer down and headed for deeper cleaner water.

    That done we re baited the hook line dropped it over the side moved away and set about burleying up a storm once more much to the delight of a freindly dotterel / petterol ( not sure which) that sat right at the back of the boat grazing quite contently on the scraps coming from the surface burley pot. VC as the first to score with a savage strike and bent rod that had me reaching for the net and both of us hoping for a by catch of pesky snapper ..but alas it was the target species of shark, after returning it VC was again in the action with a horse of Kawhai!! Myself I soaked baits and admired the bird life the jelly-fish and the lovely way the sun shone through the clouds.

    Meanwhile VC wrangled a steady stream of sharks not just the normal spikies he was going hard slaying greyboys , small rig the whole works and with a finial flourish he boated a fat gurnard, that was enough for me I protested the wind and VC relented and we headed over to recover the hook line , VC being the top bloke he is took the risk of letting me bring the hook line in, which I almost managed with out incident ..only one tangle around the handle and chucking the clip trace hook over the side rather than the shark (sorry VC)!!

    With the line on board with another two beauty Kawhai and the targeted sharks returned for next winter we headed over to VC never ever fail spot and ran the lures out..... long story short I some how managed to hex this spot as well .

    A huge cheers to a top bloke VC for taking me out and yarning up a storm and turning a blind eye to my ham fistedness!!
    Thanks VC it was a blast
