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.

I have to say that you have a pretty good idea here!!

Cool, It's probably alot cheaper thatn the ones for sale now and the best part is that it adjust to any height!!

Good Job,

How well does the clip work? I always just laid down a palm on the head but that sounds alot easier.

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?

Go to garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I got my for $3. Whole thing was under $20 for me.

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

    • It's not optimum for home defense or hunting either. Basically just lower cost plinking.    As far as Bushmaster, they make ok guns for sure. But personally the fact that they are owned by a venture capital firm who tried but failed to sell them off some time ago, they are more than likely controlled by bean counters rather than gun enthusiasts and that generally doesn't bode well for quality. 
    •   social media king...... and dont you forget it ! ! !  lol
    •   I see you have a whooooping 65 posts. start sharing and maybe the site will be smokin again... LOL  have fun and stop beating the horse that died.  pretend ya just found the site  
    • Use the hallow points or ballistic tips they rip apart
    • I usually get mine from Tim over at Stump Jumper Designs. He does great work and has lots of choices of woods etc... 
    •   Yeah, but you know your Aunt Bev will never make fun and insult you on FaceBook like you will get here! 
    • Smoked 3 slimers last week.  real simple brine, 1 cup pickling salt, 1 cup brown sugar and water to cover.  24 hr soak.  added onions and brown sugar on top. 3.5 hrs at 195.  Used to leave skin on, dealt with the slime.  still tasted great.  Been skin off for a couple batches lately and its the way to go.  no slime to deal with, just sprayed the rack with pam.  hammerhandles be ware!
    • I've only tried them with Northern, but honestly, I'm not sure I could taste the difference if I didn't make them myself.  All psychological, IMO - this will likely start an off-topic discussion BUT I participated in an 8 person taste test between Walleye, Northern and Bass (yes, we cut-up a medium sized bucket-mouth).  I was the only one to name all three fish correctly and it was only due to the fact that my friend who was in-charge of the test accidentally missed a y-bone so I just had to guess in-between walleye and bass and I guessed correctly.  A couple of the guys also had a y-bone and got their guess between 'eye and bass wrong!!!  Flaky white fish is flaky white fish - especially when you bust it all up, mix it with bread crumbs, mayo and whatever else.  Again, just my opinion.
    •   I agree the split did not work out. Also a lot of people are on FB. Heck I finally joined last year. Jury is still out whether I like it or not!!
