I bought one of the Bubba Pro series lithium-ion knifes this spring after talking to a friend that had one. It is hands down the best fillet knife I’ve ever had. The thing I like the best is, it never gets hot to hold onto, no matter how many fish I clean.

I would go with one of the rechargeable ones over an electric…beats running a cord and gives you the opportunity to go mobile…either way you won’t be disappointed

If you are good with a regular knife & dont fish a lot you can do pretty well with a regular knife plus most people end up with more meat. If you are pressed for time & have a lot of fish to clean electric works nice. For me any way I like a regular knife to clean big fish, its hard on many electric knives sawing through those big bones.

I used a Mr. twister for yrs. I found it didn't work well on the larger wally's . went to the Bubba don't know if it's the blades or the knife it's self but it's far better. side note the Mr. Twister blades work in the Bubba.

American Angler also makes a very nice electric knife and is less $$$ than the Bubba. Using an electric is like anything else, as there is a learning curve. You'll mess up a few, but IMO it is exponentially faster to get through a big batch of fish vs. using a standard filet knife.

I have a cordless Rapala now, but the American Angler that I had for about 10 years was an awesome knife. The Rapala was a gift, but the cordless feature is definitely a nice feature. It is not nearly as strong as the AA was, but it still works fine.

The newer American Angler is not the same quality as the older model. I have a Rapala also the HD model I think, the Bubba is far superior to either one, no comparison IMHO. I have wore out a number of electric filet knives & the Bubba is the best yet. It depends on how many fish you clean & what you want to spend. I doubt if you find many electric knives of any brand in a commercial fish cleaning facility.

I have the cordless bubba, this is my 2nd season on it. I have used the corded version and they do have a little more a$$ but I have never felt like I needed more power. I have pretty much done 50-80 fish a week last year from April through Dec and this year March til now. I would definitely buy another when that time comes.

Are you electrified guys cutting through rib bones and then scooping them out or fileting around them? I'm trying to learn before I go electric.

Yes right through them leave skin attached at tail, cut out ribs, run knife under fillet to skin, comes off 2 pieces ribs and boneless fillet.
