I've got a Yanagiba as well; but I only use it for sashimi.

For filleting I use a Deba

I use the Global flexible boning knife. It does the trick with larger specimens as well as fiddly things like garfish. It's also versatile -- I use it far more frequently for things like dismantling chickens or boning out legs of lamb. I'd recommend it.

I got a Swibo 20 cm flexible blade knife from Everten, cost $54.85 delivered. Very sharp, too sharp really which makes skinning fillets a bit of a hassle, and I only have to go close to my finger and the bleeding starts. I would avoid knives with wood or rubber handles, they do not last too well, maybe I should keep them out of the dishwasher.

better off crafting a knife out of a stone i find on the ledge than trying to fillet a trevally with that blunt piece of $3 schite from kmart i was using.
