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.

    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
    • Feiders sittin just outside the top 12. Really cool to see him doing well this year. Didnt sound like he had much luck prefishing going into the last tournament or this one but hes doin a heck of a job when it matters. Would be sweet to see him fighting for another top 12 spot on saturday!   As for my fantasy team... not so good. I was having a decent year so far (except for tharp last tourney).
    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!    
    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
