Rapala Electric Fillet Knives

7 posts in this topic

Has anyone used the new Rapala Pro Guide Electric Fillet Knife? After using a friends the other day I'm seriously considering the switch from the fillet knife to a electric fillet knife...

Thanks!

I'm curious as well on this... How does that knife compare to the American Angler knives?

I've been through numerous (and more expensive) electric fillet knives, e.g. Mister Twister, Rapala.

None of them has lasted as long as the $20.00 electric carving knives from your local discount retailers...

Hey Marine Man
What are you worried about you wife will get you one anyhow. You know what I think but for everyone else I think that the Rapala knife is the best electric knife I have used. The motor unit is smaller than all other brands so it is less bulkey to work with. Also the way the knife comes it has all of the adapters to run 12 volt, and 110 also it has 2 blades I believe they are a 6 and 8 inch and then a bonus little cutting board. I have a rechargable american angler and it is nice but you can only fillet about 10 fish before the battery dies and it will not run off of the charger. The cord on the knife is really long as well so you can probably fillet fish 25' away from your power supply. This is by far better than anyother fillet knife I have used.

If you can find them any place the Black & Decker knives are the best I have one and a Mister Twister and you can really tell the diference. I can believe some people still use fillet knives, electric is the way to go. I cleaned 200 perch at Sunsetview Resort on Winnie a month or so ago in about 1 and a half and the people in the cleaning house could not beleive there eyes, I was putting on a clinic for them. Get the Decker I ordered mine and have not switched blades in 3 years.

I was at Walmart on Monday and they had a Black & Decker electric knife there for about $19. I bought a GE one and it works great at a much lower price than the "fishing" electric knives. Never against saving a little money. It also came with 2 blades and a carrying case.

    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation. 
    • Some times it's just nice getting out of town and when your with the right people a wet weekend can still be fun. This weekend should be better!
    • Cool story! 
    • Reb's old girlfriend might have had a diaphragm, but you would find that one in the lower unit - not in the carburetor...
    • Most of the homeowner's expense comes from heating and cooling inside a home. Double pane windows have gasses like argon or krypton filled to displace the air between the panels. But the problem is when this leaks from the window panes and settles down at the bottom. 1) The main problem that would arise is condensation. The moisture level goes high thus causing mold, mildew and rotting wood sills. 2) If the gas leaks, the window will not provide better insulation. 3) The windows start to make squeaky sounds thus it is hard to close and open. 4) It also affects the stripping to loose. I live here in Canada. In our house, we have double pane windows in almost all the rooms. Now I could see that some of the windows to be in a foggy condition. Will it be due to the gas in the window panes? Should I need to replace the windows? I have heard that casement windows.are good compared to double pane windows. I would like to know the benefits of casement windows. Will it cut down my utility bills? Please do share your thoughts and valuable suggestions. Thanks for the time.
    • We spent last weekend in the camper, holed up hiding from the rain. Not the worst thing ever, but a hike would've been nice. Hopefully we'll have better weather over Memorial Day. It looks good now so I'm excited. 
    • I am in a confusion on which one to choose. I have anyways decided to separate the bath area from the toilet. Which one would be better? I don't have enough area in the bathroom. One of my friends said that when it comes to energy efficiency and water conservation, a quick shower virtually always beats a bath. Is it true??   Although it is good for relaxing and ideal for bathing small children, I think it will be difficult for older people and people with injuries to get in and out. When it comes to the case of water heaters also I think it will be difficult to fill the tub. I think all these issues can be sorted out using a shower. Showers always need only less water. But if there is any leak, it will be difficult to fix.   I personally prefer bathtubs. Although it has many disadvantages compared to showers, the relaxation and freshness we get after bathing in a tube are very different. What is your opinion? Based on your opinion, I want to fix my decision and approach a plumbing company for installing it. Feel free to share your thoughts.
