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.

    • Never underestimate what a pussycat in her prime can bring down.      
    • 1.23.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye!   On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too!   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head.   This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report.   We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
    • I think the good news is we haven't look great lately but are still putting up wins, nothing wrong with that. Preds have been playing well lately and we were back to back so not going to get too concerned over that loss. Heck Kuemper even looked decent last night. CM Haula and Pommers have looked a little better lately. I am starting to hope Parise is still injured or something, he kind of looks like he is doing everything as usual but just can't get anything going. If this is him aging we are in trouble, lots of years left on that contract. Maybe just a bad season or fighting the puck I just don't know but something is off with him. The good news is we don't need a lot of out of him right now, just a little bit of elevated play and every now and then contributing on the score sheet. Granlund and Zucker have been just crazy good, even without Koivu last night they were our best line, always dangerous.
    • Over last week I left my generator in my fishouse and didn't shut off the propane.  My CO detector alarmed.   When I opened the door to clear it out I could smell a difference.  It didn't smell like either gas or propane - just different.   It only took a few minutes to clear the alarm but I'm not leaving the generator in there anymore and making sure I turn off the propane.  I usually do that but didn't get it done this last time.  The furnace was shut off like usual though.
    • I am looking at the HT Ice Blue and HT Ice Blue Pro rods.  Is there really a difference?  Which one is the better buy?
    • I've owned both the Nils 6 inch Trekker and the Kdrill 6 inch.   In my "opinion", I like the Nils over the Kdrill.   Nils has less torque when drilling, you get more holes per battery, it is faster then Kdrill,  the NIl's material is better to handle thick ice,  you could use it as a hand drill if you run out of battery, and if you get the Trekker model you can make it different lengths.   Kdrill's advantage is it is lighter and you can reopen holes since it is a chipper style blade. I don't open old holes so I sold my Kdrill. 
    • It's already happened....  
    • So what is the Leech Lake Blood Bath Days???
    • Thanks guys for the quick ID response !  It's still hanging around this morning! Maybe another result of climate change?
    • Interesting. Have never seen one around our place in the winter,  although it is surprising sometimes how many birds seem to stay very late into the winter.
