    It has been a Long time, much like any fish if I remember correctly. Knife down along the spine, then remove the rib bones. Flip it over and skin it. Much like doing a salmon, but the scales are much bigger and harder.

    Took my first few Reds on fly last summer at NC OBX. I didn't realize how strong they were. I can't wait to go back and try again. I was using a hot pink popper, pretty small #4 and fishing in about 8" of water in the coastal marsh.
