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.

    •   Where did I say anything about entitlement for anything for anyone? Nor did I name any news agencies, so maybe you should answer your own questions.    Maybe your just upset because you've got snow to shovel and I don't.
    • Butt the 2 sheets tigh and leave the gap against the side walls of the boat where it will be less noticeable and get no foot traffic . A thin strip of aluminum riveted or screwed on the underneath side of the plywood helps to hold the seam tight
    • two bowls of that will send you to heaven!!
    • 10 IN THE BOAT HERE ON HIDDEN BAY early this morning. Can’t sleep so I got up and made a breakfast and rolled myself into the den to look at my mess. I am in the middle of a computer upgrade when my new addition decided to die on me. Not a new computer but the daughters old one which when running is ten times the old junker that I have been running. We have narrowed it done to the power supply but I am going to have my x son in law take a look before we do anything. If my den is not all ready crowded enough with a cluttered desk and tobacco out to roll some cigars and the trays of flowers under the grow lights there is just enough room for me and my chair.   So I hitched a ride yesterday afternoon to the Lodge with my neighbor Chuck. Place was quiet so I was actually working going over sales the last week and plotting sales when we had games on the new TV and sales are up. We will have it paid for here shortly and it might even make us money this summer if the Twins can put any kind of a season together. So I am at the bar and a older gent walks in that looks vaguely familiar. Looks the place over then takes a seat on a stool in front of me "HIYA" he says and I return the greeting. "Where are the dogs" he asks. I sit back in my stool and ask "You mean Bud and Barney?" He nods his head yes and says "It has been awhile since I have been here but I do remember being greeted by two big brown dogs" " They both passed a few years ago." I said. He nodded his head and said "Sorry for your loss" and we both just sat for awhile thinking of old dogs.   "My name is Luis" and he put out his hand which I shook. "Got a place on the end of the lake and this is a long drive to get here but I decided to make the drive today" "Welcome to the Lodge Luis" I said then I yelled out "Duncan" and Duncan got up from the couch in the office and came out to the main room. "Say hi to Luis" Duncan then came around to Luis, sat down and stuck out his paw to be shook. Luis chuckled some and shook Duncan’s paw and looked back at me and said "I figured you would not be dog less" Some petting and a few good rubs and the two of them were now long loss friends. Duncan came around the bar and laid down on his rug by the cooler.   "So what can I get ya Luis?" Luis looked at the back wall and said "You know it looks like a beer day, How about a Hamms?" So I poured him one and a shortly for myself and went into my bartender mode. "You have a dog Luis?" I asked. Luis wiped his mouth with his sleeve and smacked his lips. "I don’t but my wife does. "What kind ?" I asked and Luis told me he does not remember, it was expensive though and it is retired. "Retired, I asked, How old is it?" Luis taking another sip of his beer said "Two"   "How can it be retired already" I asked. Luis looking into his beer glass said "Well the wife carries it everywhere, dresses it up in spendy dog clothes, It fits inside her purse and she takes it shopping claming it is her companion, I thought I was her companion" Luis held out his glass for a refill and I poured him another. We spent some time talking about hunting dogs and big house dogs and dogs that never see the inside of a purse. I sat on my stool behind the bar with Duncan’s paw resting on my foot, I guess it aint all that bad here at Lake Iwanttobethere
    •     Sounds like Trump wants to run it like the DNC and the GOP run the debates, only minus the DNC...      
    •     Yes, that's what I was thinking.....    
    •   Rush was getting the pills from multiple doctors and off the street, which is punishable by up to 5 years in prison..  But, of course, he had the financial means to avoid prison, whereas the average Joe does not.   Ending the war on drugs means getting the federal government less involved with drug abuse, since they have failed miserably at the job.   States like Arizona and those going ahead with legalizing marijuana as a first step are taking the lead, and eventually the feds will have to step aside.   http://substanceabuse.az.gov/substance-abuse/rethink-rx
