Comments:

The bluegill fish is a freshwater species that is originally from North America. The fish are named after the blue tint on the gills.

*Panfish is a general term that includes a number of fish species that normally don't grow larger than a frying pan.
Technically, it includes fish like crappies, bluegill, redear, green sunfish, pumpkinseed sunfish and related species.

How to fillet a Bluegill:
Begin by laying your fillet knife behind the pectoral fin. Cut all the way through the ribs and down to the main bone. Slice the fish from behind the gills to the backbone. Don't slice through, leave a small piece attached. Move the knife along the spine, again not to cut through. Slice all the way to the fish's tail without removing the skin yet. Lay out the fish with the skin side down. Use a fillet knife to slice all the way down the fillet. Cut away the skin. To cut a remaining bones use a clean fillet knife to get under the ribs, top to bottom, keeping the knife right under the bones, so as not to lose any of the meat.
