Cat Tip of the Day: Frisbee Cut Bait Board

Recommended Posts

This is an old Cat Tip that I thought I would post again since everybody is getting ready for the cat season. If you are looking for a cheap and easy cutting board for preparing cut bait, pick up one of those plastic Frisbees. Turn it upside down, and start cutting away. They are plenty sturdy for cutting suckers or shad on and the rim doesn't allow slime, blood or bait chunks to leave the cutting surface. You can pass the bait plate to your buddy with ease and they rinse off and store easily too. Next time you go by a Dollar Store just pop in there and they usually sell lots of frisbee for the perfect price - $1.00. A cheap, perfect cutting board.

Ya Haven't tried that one yet. I normally use my creekside fillet kit for cut bait. It came with two cutting board two fillet knifes ( both have two size small and large )a boning knife, a little red knife sharpener, and one of those long metal sharpeners. All for 15 bucks. It also comes in a hard plastic case. Easy to store in the boat or carry with too the shore.

Steve's idea is great and cheap. I have also used the 5 gal lid and an old Buck Knife and a rock also grin

Last year I lucked out at the Bargain Cave and found this Salt Water setup for next to nothing:



I have about 3 spots set up around my boat where I move it to. It is nice because I can cut big baits, filet, chop or what ever. I just tilt it back and the juices and blood run right off into the river. When done, I have a little coffee can I use to dump some water on it and then I just dunk the whole thing into the river. It worked out pretty slick.

that is a good idea, the top of my tacklebox thanks you.

prolly good for leech cutting when panfishing with the kids too, no doubt.

AND if you have your lab in the boat, you have something for him to chase when you stop at the sandbar.........

Another nice thing about the Frisbee is that it can serve multiple uses (When shore fishing at least) - it's cheap entertainment when the sun is still up and your waiting on a bite.

RRZ's cutting board almost looks like a cribbage board!

    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme. 
    • New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers.  This will be available through Polaris Dealers.   https://fishingminnesota.com/forums/topic/210952-new-ice-shelter-from-polaris-and-otter/    
    • Sure I do Dave. You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from?  Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜    
    • Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....     BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
