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.

    • Oxidizers were federally mandated in 1997. Politicians took big contributions from the ethanol industry which is set up to benefit ethanol manufacturers and big operations. It has in fact hastened the demise of small and medium farms and the rural communities that depended on them. The farm belt has suffered greatly as a result of regulations passed that benefit the big operations. Small & medium farmers cannot compete with growing ag corporations who can buy seed with big discounts, often exploit illegal workers and can ship product cheaper. Corn had it's short 10 year or so boon after 1997. But that went bust as more marginal land was tilled under & overproduction was achieved to the benefit of ethanol producers. Many farms are still going bust or selling out to the big corporations. 75% of the land in production is owned by big corporate farms. 30 years ago you could flip that number around. So what has this gov't subsidy done for most farmers? Put them out of business!
    • Sorry if I came across as a bit abrasive.  Some of us can get a little surly around here and sometimes we forget we aren't talking to one of the other surly long-timers.   I get what you're saying about a more hunting specific truck with some specific bells and whistles designed with hunters in mind.  I do think the best way to get a truck like that would be to find the base model truck you like for all of the normal stuff trucks come with and then look for some sort of after market option.  There has to be a pro or 2 out there that can take on such a project if you aren't up for tackling it yourself.  I'd be a bit nervous cutting into a new truck as well so would look to hire it out as well.   A couple things that I'd like.  A winch in the bed like you mentioned.  Could be used for loading deer, portable ice houses, or other large loads when you don't have another guy to help. Some sort of instant heat or maybe an app that could start your car from the stand. Maybe some sort of gun safe type lock box behind the seats or in the floor so that if you can keep your rifle or shotgun cased and locked up.  It could be useful for times you may want to sneak out for a hunt after work and you want a better way to secure your firearm when at work.
    • Just a seasoning packet. Adjust the recipe as you see fit. A late summer batch with fresh sweet corn off of the cob works pretty well.     
    • I have a nice truck, but.... For 1 week a year there are things that I would like to change/add. Keyless start would go with keyless entry, like the new ranger boat, punch in your number and go. I can not turn off my lights on my gmc sierra. I install 12v electronics professionally but I wouldn't feel as comfortable cutting into wiring harnesses to add switches as I am tearing all wiring from a boat and doing it from scratch. I'm not trying to hide from the animals, I don't want people to know where my hunting spots are and chrome sticks out bad. I go farther and climb higher and sit longer than 95% of fellow hunters which is why I average 6.3 deer/year (legally) but people who know of my success will seek out my parking spot and return thinking that its the only good spot to hunt. Anyways... I was just trying to open up a friendly conversation about a perfect hunting rig to get people out of the political talk that HSO seems to be about. My best stand is walking distance from my house so all I need a truck for is to retrieve my bucks. Was hoping for something besides abrasive comments and criticism that seems to follow most of my posts. I'm sorry I will quietly read and keep my fingers away from the keyboard. I made it into the ALL TIME RECORD BOOK with a 172" typical public land giant when I drove a 2000 Chev Malibu 24k gold edition anyway. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful time. 
    • Check your throttle position sensor voltage. KOEO you should see .8 to 1.0 volts with the throttle closed.  
    • Spring officially arrived March 20 with the vernal equinox and temperatures leading into it were very spring like, bringing a close to much of the outdoor winter recreation across the state. Snowmobile trails now remain open in only a handful of northern counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR) and more are expected to close with warm weather this week. Many state parks and forests have discontinued ski trail grooming, so even if a spring snowstorm arrives most trails will not be groomed. Most mountain bike and horse trails are closed and will remain closed until they dry out. There is still up to 2 feet or more of snow in some northern counties, making it a great time to get out and explore on snowshoes, which are a must for trekking out in the woods.Flood waters were rampant last week in some areas of southern Wisconsin but many went down over the weekend. As of March 20, the Trempealeau River had dropped to minor flood stage and the Crawfish, Rock, Fox and Manitowoc rivers were expected to remain in moderate flood stage through next week. .
    • Just buy whatever truck you want and get started adding after market accessories, probably cheaper than buying all that stuff standard on a niche truck that will likely be really over priced due to it being a specialty item.  Most of that list could probably be doable fairly easily.  Personally I don't think half of that list is kind of pointless though.  If your non-camo truck with reflective chrome bumpers is giving you away to the animals you might want to get a bit further away from your truck when you're hunting.  If you're really struggling with loose ammo rolling all around the floor of your truck try leaving it in the box when its not in your gun. Key less entry might be nice but if you lose your key in the woods it will just give you a place to sit while you wait for someone to give you a ride home. Can't you already turn your lights/high beams off when your truck is running?
    • Most of that would be do-able by a small outfit (not 4 wheel steering).   Business opportunity for someone
    • Also got my bonus tag. Both tags bought and ready to rock in a couple months.  
    • Just scored my Zone 4 bonus tag.  Quick and easy.
