Cooking: Filleting a Fish (first time)

The experience was not as easy as it was in the video. I could not do the pull the head to remove the guts (although most of the guts have already been removed). Then, I am able to fillet one side. Cutting through the ribs was harder than it appeared in the video. Filleting the other side was not as clean as the first side especially when cutting the ribs. After that, I pulled out the rib bones. This was very difficult with fingers. I did not have tweezers. Overall, I did get two fillets. They appear so much smaller than I had imagined from the whole fish. I used the rest of the fish for soup.
