looks like low spots. Just skim it past the lows and once it's good do a final skim coat on that plane to make sure. Guide coat and hand feel will tell you. When mixing use a figure 8 motion and it's the same motion they use to make taffy...and there's a reason for it. Then spread it out on your mixing board tightly so you squeeze out the rest of the bubbles. Then skim it tight and once you do it tight go back over it lightly to soften your spreader marks. This will make the sanding less tendious, which will give you the patience to make it nice and straight. for the area next to the raised area in the middle spread it and then use the corner of your spreader( a flexible one I hope) to feather the edge of your filler. Don't be afraid to spread your second skim across the whole plane. If you spread it right there won't be much sanding and it won't be such a hassle.The lows shouldn't be that bad at this point given it's fiberglass and you already added materials to it.
