hehe for a leather jacket

hehe for a leather jacket just fillet it -there is a knack to it ...(must be skinned first)
or eat it whole dusted in flour... cut its head off and skin it whole - slid ya fingers between the "leather" and the white inner skin and it just tears off.
sorry about the crap explination but its easier if you show someone..
might have to make a few video's on fish filleting and prep work one of these days so i can explain stuff better :)
