Cordless electric fillet knife

9 posts in this topic

I'm looking into getting an electric fillet knife and thought cordless would be the way to go. That way it would be a lot easier to fillet them out on the ice, especially northerns so you wouldn't have that slime in the house.

I did a search on them and came up with Rapala and Anglers' Best (maybe there's some others I didn't see.) Who has tried them and is one better than the other? Or maybe you have a reason not to go with a cordless. Anyway, all opinions are welcome.

Thanks, Steve

Rappala is nice as they have spare batteries. I don't think the others do, battery goes dead and you are too.

I bought cordless a few years ago and would not do it again. Unless Rapala has changede their battery problems, they don't last. They are always dead when you want to use them and if you don't use it enough, the batteries won't hold a charge. I use cordless tools everyday for construction and have great luck with them. My dad has some of the same tools, but rarely uses them. His batteries are always dead and have less than half the life of mine. With daily or very frequent use, cordless will work. Otherwise, I would get one with a cord. Good luck.

I would get the Corded AC/DC Version so you can Run it off of a Marine or Car Battery along with your regular AC current.

I love my Rappala!!!!!

Thanks everyone!!! Sounds like the AC/DC version would be the way to go. I'm never too far from a 12 volt source.

One bit of advice take note of the cord configuration when you open the Rappala Case up. It can be a chore to get everthing lined up and back into the case. But with a little practice it can be done no problem.

I have the Rapala coldless model and love it. I have not had any problems with batteries going dead quickly. I usually have both of them fully charged before putting them to use. Once the first battery starts to show signs of slowing I put it on the charger and use the fresh one. By the time the second battery is going dead the first is full charged.

Last winter I cleaned perch for about 2+ hours straight and only had to switch batteries a couple times.

I surely would not see a problem with the corded models if you always had a place to plug them into.

I got the cordless model as a gift a couple years ago and heard the same thing about the batteries not being very durable, but that has not been my experience.

    •   Attached is what you can get with the $40 package with SlingTV. Looks like they have history but not discovery. They also have $20 and $25 packages. The only thing I watched with any regularity when I had it was ESPN so I dropped it.

    • Well said Del! There weren't issues till he decided to stick his nose in it. The mod for that thread did just fine.
    • I meant harmless in the sense they don't kill fish. With that being said, I'm sure the host fish would prefer that it not have a lamprey attached to it, but at the end of the day, the fish will live...literally. Lampreys are very common in the upper St. Croix River system. I see them attached to redhorse all the time, which makes sense, as redhorse are by far the most abundant fish in the system. If the lampreys haven't "crashed" that system after several thousand years of coexistence, I'm liking gamefishes' chances for the next several thousand years also 
    • John Podesta May Have Violated Federal Law By Not Disclosing 75,000 Stock Shares 3/26/2017 Daily Caller   John Podesta, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s 2016 national campaign chairman, may have violated federal law by failing to disclose the receipt of 75,000 shares of stock from a Kremlin-financed company when he joined the Obama White House in 2014, according to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group. Joule Unlimited Technologies — financed in part by a Russian firm —  originally awarded Podesta 100,000 shares of stock options when in 2010 he joined that board along with its Dutch-based entities: Joule Global Holdings, BV and the Stichting Joule Global Foundation. When Podesta announced his departure from the Joule board in January 2014 to become President Obama’s special counsellor, the company officially issued him 75,000 common shares of stock. The Schedule B section of the federal government’s form 278 which — requires financial disclosures for government officials — required Podesta to “report any purchase, sale or exchange by you, your spouse, or dependent children…of any property, stocks, bonds, commodity futures and other securities when the amount of the transaction exceeded $1,000.”   Podesta’s form 278 Schedule B is blank regarding his receipt of any stock from any company. Liberals and conservatives alike tell TheDCNF Podesta should have disclosed the stock. “Well Podesta should certainly have been more upfront in filling this out.  Clearly, it should have been fully disclosed,” said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for the liberal group Public Citizen which was founded by Ralph Nader.  “That’s the point of the personal financial disclosure forms, especially for anyone entering the White House,” he told TheDCNF in an interview. “If the transfer of stock took place, it had to be disclosed,” added former U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova in an interview. “If he didn’t, clearly it’s a violation.”   OH, MY...   And there is soo much more to this story...   Absolute criminals...   Link
    • Schumer goes off on Trump supporter at NYC restaurant, witness says Published March 27, 2017 New York Post   Witness: Schumer went off on Trump supporter at restaurant Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., caused a scene at a Manhattan restaurant when he began yelling at a wealthy and well-connected Donald Trump supporter that the POTUS is “a liar.” Schumer, the top Senate Democrat, lost his cool on Sunday night at Upper East Side restaurant Sette Mezzo, according to witnesses. He was dining with friends when he encountered Joseph A. Califano Jr. — the former U.S. secretary of health, education and welfare under President Jimmy Carter and domestic policy adviser to President Lyndon B. Johnson — and his wife, Hilary, who were having a quiet dinner. Onlookers said Schumer was incensed that Hilary — the daughter of William S. Paley, the founder and chairman of CBS — had voted for Trump, even though her husband, Joseph, is a well-known Democrat. One witness said of the restaurant rant, “They are a highly respected couple, and Schumer made a scene, yelling, ‘She voted for Trump!’ The Califanos left the restaurant, but Schumer followed them outside.” On the sidewalk, Schumer carried on with his fantastical filibuster: “ ‘How could you vote for Trump? He’s a liar!’ He kept repeating, ‘He’s a liar!’ ” Hilary confirmed the confrontation, telling Page Six, “Sen. Schumer was really rude . . . He’s our senator, and I don’t really like him. Yes, I voted for Trump. Schumer joined us outside and he told me Trump was a liar. I should have told him that Hillary Clinton was a liar, but I was so surprised I didn’t say anything.”   Sheezus....   What an unhinged lunatic a-hole....   Could you imagine if this had been paul ryan acting in this way ??   I think a knee to the groin was in order..
