Repair Of Rapala Electric Fillet Knife

Question

Minnetonka

I have a 10 year old electric fillet knife that stopped working. I suspect that it would be a relatively easy fix but I do not have time. Does anybody out there know if someone does repair on these knives?

Unless you only filleted one or 2 fish a year. It may be time for a new one. 😉

Made with plastic gears.... Junk. Lucky you got that many years out of it. Must only fillet a few fish per year.

Depends on the knife. I've got 10 years out of them filleting 100's of fish. I usually clean them for our group all the time. Declaring their all junk is misleading.

I've used rapala non electric and leech lake fillet knives for 30+ years... 1000s of fish... Never had one fail... If its plastic and If you have to plug it in, something IS going to fail halfway through the job...😕

That's not a fair comparison. He's asking about electric. Of course a fixed blade won't fail. That's like comparing a chainsaw to a bucksaw that lasted 100 years.

      For Vermilion, the Lowrance lake insight data is identical to Lakemaster, 3 foot contours.

      Maybe you should check the various sites that sell mapping stuff?   What is the Lowrance offering?   Is there a different Navionics choice?

      You're correct trumy.  I just posted this on that page.  Thank you.

      Hi everyone, I will be heading to Echo Lake, in the superior national Forest, the middle of June.  Never been there, but the small amount I found on this site says it's a good fishing lake.  Does anyone have past experience on this lake?  I'm targeting walleye mostly, but Pike and crappie are always on my menu.  Are there any lure colors that have worked well for you?  I'm mostly a live bait fisherman.  Any presentations that worked well?  Any advice will be greatly appreciated with this lake, and I will report back how it went/what worked.  Thank you everyone.

      I brought a notarized letter from their mother and they required it back when I did it. The other documents prove who he is but not whether the father is spiriting him away.
