In the middle of the abdomen to make a shallow incision from the head to the end of the carcass. The same incision is needed at the back. It must also be the full length of the fish.
  • The hardest part of the job behind. Now, holding one arm pike head, the other gently to release the carcass from the skins. To do this, grab the edge of the skin from the tail and pull it towards the head. The maximum freeing one-half of the fish, flip it, and the same is done with the other hand. When the skin is removed from both sides of the pike is at the head, and cut it off with skin. As the result, white-pink carcass of a pike.
  • Left to release it from the bones. With this intention to deepen the incisions previously made in the abdomen and back. Then the loin will be held only along the spine. With a knife or hands to release the fillet on both sides. From fish leaving only the spine and ribs.
