Best electric fillet knife?

Recommended Posts

I usually bleed fish out and clean at home. Been using the deluxe electric fillet knife from rapala that has both a larger and smaller blade that you can swap out.

 

Unfortunately it is corded but it also has the adapters for plugging into any wall outlet, connecting to trolling motor battery posts or plugging into car or boat lighter outlet.

 

works great but the safety feature on the trigger button is a little difficult at times but for the most part I have been happy with it.

What sort of battery life have you been getting?

 

Well, I rarely have to clean enough fish for it to be an issue, but it claims 80 minutes on a full charge. What I do know is I that after laying around for four of five months without use it still has a decent charge.

I finally wore out my Rapala with removable battery and separate charger after 15 years of hard use. Bought the Rapala lithium ion model. Claims 80 minutes on a charge. Don't have to remove battery to charge. Just plug in charger to knife. Charger is the size of a small Vex charger. Cheaper than my original unit at $79. Prefer the battery models since I don't always have power available. I can do a better job with less waste than a conventional fillet knife.

Best luck I have had is with the Honda cordless, you can charge it with your Honda generator .  Super sharp blades and fits like a glove in your hand!  Highly recommended!

Grrrr. Already ordered it before I read you post.... may have to send it back. Do you know if any curved blades of the other brands will fit the twister?

Online reviews from other fisherman were good so I'm gonna keep mine and decide for myself.

I like the long straight blades on twister. Don’t take my opinion as gospel, it’s only my opinion. Lots of people love the rapala.

My knife of choice for corded one is the american angler and for cordless i would take the rapala. The advantage to the corded one for me is it seems to last way longer. My last one i got almost 12 years out of it.

Have you burnt up a cordless rapala?

If your issue seems to be the curve of the knife blade why not just buy a cheap set of Rapala curved blades and grind of the square corner on the butt end of the blades so they will fit the knife you like.  I  do not like the straight blade design either and found this to be a much better option than changing knife brands.

I've had a couple American Angler but totaled the last one out filleting 30 lb carp for smoking.  I didn't blame it though.  Now I have a Rapala and have liked both of them very much.  Exception is the handle part on the AA is awful thick and even though I have big hands the Rapala fits better.  I put a Sabre blade on the American  and really liked  it as the blade was thinner and would like to do the same on the one I have now if it will fit.

    • so, last nite I busted my butt to get all my peppers. maters, celery and green beans planted before the rains came. it was way to windy to plant carrots and the rest of my kolarabi. I wanted to plant my cabbage but grabbed broccoli instead. ISH...… got them today and there in.   so once this crappy weather moves on i'll get anything else in the ground soon.   picked my first bunch of asparagus today!!!!!! there in the process of getting put in a pickling brine!!!!!
    • birds are crazy at the feeders. 4 male orioles fighting, pair of male cardinals going at it. plenty of yellow finches. even have a scarlet tanager here!!!!!!   the tree swallows showed up as well as a pair of wrens checking to rent!!!!!!!
    • Just about done.  All the pads are finished up. All the trim has a clear coat on it now(2 coats around the windows and door). I also got some blinds installed.  I had a nice surprise from my mom.  She bought me a tv for it.  I had planned on putting a tv in it before next ice season so thats awesome to get one installed early.  Its going to make its madden voyage next weekend.  We are going up to Cut Foot Sioux to camp for memorial day weekend. Now its time to clean it all up good and stock it up for camping.
    • For the 2019 Minnesota Fishing Opener we went out on Lake Vermilion in search of Walleyes. Our first day the fishing was slow with a lot of different tactics and areas tried. We made a change that evening and casted artificials into rocky shorelines with a lot of success. We decided to try that again the next morning when a large surprise inhaled my jerkbait!    
    • Another good start from Perez last night, Kepler & Adrianza with 5 of the 7 RBI's
    • Smoking the ball.    
    • Those are zippy bikes!  I looked at them but I'm just way to short and put a lowing kit on my 650 just to touch the ground! 😀
