Anybody own or have used the Rapala electric knives, the ones that are 120 volt or 12 volt.I was wondering if I should put this on the Christmas list!

Friend of mine at work just got one. Looks sweat. I like my American Angler. Going on 2 years with the same blade and no problems. I fillet a few fish too. I like the cig adaptor and the option to run off the truck or boat battery. Only drawback I see with the Rapala is its heavy.

N'lander,
Which american angler do you have? I am planning on gettting one for the father-in-law for Xmas. How is it for doing crappies and perch?

I've got one.. as does a friend of mine (who got me hooked on electric fillet knives in the first place)... and I love it. I've got the pack that is wired for 12V, which also comes with the 110 inverter... it's a handy tool when cleaning a mess of fish... I rarely use my regular knife any more...

Just curious,
I got one (American Angler) as a gift this summer but still have yet to use it. Would it work for cutting a deer up as long as I'm not going through bones?

Chris I have the 12 volt D.C. Model No.31001. It has a 18' cord and I can run it off my cig. lighter, truck battery or Boat battery. I bet ya could run it off a extra Vex battery too but I didnt try that yet. Perch and Crappie are where it shines. Doesnt get dull on all those scales like my reg. knifes. Practice slowly on the first few fish and in no time you will be using it 90% of the time. Great for long trips all year round. I paid less than $20 for it on clearance at G.M. Wally world has them too.

If you're old fashioned, do a google search for Leech Lake Knives. Sharpest fillet knife around, and you can't help but love the craftsmanship.

I got one last year for christmas. The first one, I had problems with it. The switch stuck and I couldn't get it to turn off.

The manufacturer replaced it no questions asked and it's been great ever since.

Thankfully, I rec'd the knife as a X-mas present from my step-dad, but they are pricey.

    • 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.
