    I personally catch and release EVERY fish I catch, but what are some of your favorite brands of fillet knives? Filleting the larger fish sometimes will dull a cheap one after several fish, so Im looking to cut down on cuttin' and concentrate on cookin!

    I have always had the Wood handle Rapalas also since I was a kid, great knives!!! Have 2 in the garage right now. Really stay sharp...

    But when ya got a huge mess of fish to clean for a fry, one of those new fangled electrics are the ticket....:wink:

    An electric knife never even dawned on me. Im thinking thanksgiving turkey, but it should work like a charm.

    electric knives are great. IF you are used to using them. not like a flaying knife. doesn't bend like them. but once you get used to them, can whip through the fish or whatever. i can flay catfish in nothing flat now with one. but took lots of practice.

    Yep, work great, make short work of alot of fish. Just takes some gettin used to as Gary said.... Don't use the turkey kind though....look for the one's specifically for fish...Walmart, Bass Pro, Cabelas etc... they have more flexible fillet knife shaped blades....

    I have a Rapala electric fillet knife, and it is a great tool. Try it, you'll like it.

    However, if turkey is what you are slicing, then the old $20 Black and Decker electric knife is just the ticket.

    I keep a 12v electic knife in my boat. Good for a hundred stripers at Pleasent of a few carps for cut bait when flat fishing.
