Fish Cleaning Table

25 posts in this topic

Was talking to some folks about the table I use for cleaning fish. It's made from an ironing board with formica on top. Has a tail clip to hold the fish and has a handle that pulls out to put your bucket on. Works slicker than a snot rocket.

Hey Sandmannd,

Where did you find a fish clip like that? I have board that I could attach one of those to.

Yea, Cabelas has them. I think I got that one online somewhere.

Thanks guys, it's the handiest thing ever. If I have a few to clean I put it up all the way. But if I got a ton of pannies, I put it down so I can sit by it.

This wouldn't work for me. I'm left handed.

Stand on the other side of the table.

My wife sure is going to be upset about her ironing board, Sandmand, but she'll get over it. That is one great idea.

Good idea Sand.

I think this would work for ironing cloths also. I always have the hold down one end when pulling the iron down. The clip would do that for me grin

I've got a little folding camping table, but looking at cutting boards. The cutting boards seems to be the expensive part to me.

get a sink cut out. i use that all the time. works good for me and cheap. i dont think that invention would work good for me, i seem to need to reposition my fish to much. great idea though.

I took the fish clip off an old fillet board (the kind they sell at Cabellas and Gander) and attached it to a big piece of plywood. I have more space. The thing that I like about the plywood versus a smooth piece of formica is that the fish doesn't slide around on the wood. Then again, you get more fish scales and blood hanging around even after you hose it off...so it comes down to personal preference.

That's one slick table My only question is do you pinch the tail or the head?

I actually don't pinch either. Very rarely do I use the clip. If I do, I usually pinch the head.

    • And if the leftists get lucky at the convention?     You aren't against human rights, like income, health care, equality, LBGTQ rights, and stuff like that, right?  
    • You scale them, no?
    •   So, why bother with locks?  Honest people won't take your stuff even if the door is unlocked.   I am in the camp that I want to make it at least a little difficult for the crooks.   Especially since three people in our family have had their houses burgled and stuff taken.
    • The result right now is not good. One way or the other the toilet needs flushing
    • Mostly I talk about this with respect to the nonsense about multiple parties or no parties some on here seem so fond of.      It is all a fantasy.   Some new party could possibly take over an existing party, like Trumpism did, or even replace it like happened back in the day but in the end there will be two parties.     Perhaps a parlimentary system with multiple parties would be better than what we have, but, in my opinion, you can't get there from here.  It's like the calls for a Constitutional Convention.   Do you guys seriously think that could happen, and that the result would be good?  
    • I haven't gone up the old Grade, but do head to Outing via Emily and NE from there, and it is really nice. Hardly any roads to go across and little to no ditch riding. I have got to try the Old Grade, as I would think it is like that. We grouse and duck hunt up there now and then, but haven't lately. Great place with lots of public land and opportunity.
    •   But yet I countered with an actual study but you think your own speculative based opinion is better. OK then.     How very hypocritical.      I would end the discussion after that last statement too.
    •     I can guess it is not for humanitarian reasons.   Mexico has about had their fill of fighting the drug war for us, and are moving towards decriminalization.  If California legalizes weed, this would be enough to tip the scales in favor of decriminalization for Mexico.       For years now, Mexico has paid an extraordinarily high price in lives and social disruption for Washington’s insistence that North America’s drug problem be tackled south of the border, where the drugs are grown and transported, rather than primarily in clinics and halfway houses at home to treat the medical and psychological issues of users. Mexican President Pena Nieto.   Successive administrations, starting with President Nixon, have demanded ever-tougher border controls, aerial-spraying programs, and DEA-backed anti-“cartel” operations in Mexico. All those efforts and sacrifices have been for naught. U.S. residents currently export up to $29 billion in cash to Mexican traffickers each year to buy marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines and heroin.   Forcing that trade underground has taken a terrible toll on Mexico in terms of violence, corruption and social upheaval. Since 2006, when President Felipe Calderón ordered his military to join the “war” on drug traffickers, Mexico has lost about 200,000 lives and 30,000 more have disappeared,dwarfing the civilian death toll in Afghanistan and Iraq over that period.   The majority of those killed and disappeared were victims of criminal organizations, but human rights organizations also report soaring rates of human rights violations, including torture and killing, committed by security forces.   The 2016 Global Peace Index, prepared by the Institute for Economics and Peace, estimates the total cost of violence in Mexico at $273 billion, or 14 percent of GDP, with no end in sight. Direct fiscal costs of fighting the war on crime were about $32 billion in 2015 alone. Yet the United States has contributed only about $2.5 billion since fiscal 2008 to Mexico’s drug war, under the so-called “Merida Initiative.” Mexico’s pain shows no signs of easing. The New York Times reported in December that Mexico suffered more than 17,000 homicides in the first 10 months of last year, the highest total since 2012. “The relapse in security has unnerved Mexico and led many to wonder whether the country is on the brink of a bloody, all-out war between criminal groups,” it said.    
    •   But In Del's defense, he only does this on things he would like to stay as is. When you are talking about legislation he is in favor of then it is the law of the land and can't be changed. When it is something that he dislikes, it can and should be changed.
