What's the Best electric fillet knife? I'm looking for Speed, Durability, Good blades, Doesn't get hot on your hand, good trigger

Normally will be cleaning tons of white bass and i end up buying a new rapala or mister twister every year

I've had good luck with American Angler. I believe it's everything your looking for. I've had mine over 15 years and it's running like a swiss watch. I've replaced blades, but thats wear and tear.

I'm surprised to hear your having problems with the mister twister brand. I work for bass pro shops and by far it gets the best customer feed back. Plus I see a lot of the rapala brand coming back for defects or poor satisfaction. I even bought the largest blades I could for salmon and my mister twister is still running strong. Hope this helps...

IMHO the Mister Twister, Rapala, kershaw electric knives are all junk. We use a Black and Decker electric knife for everything from white bass to salmon. Best thing out there. Don't think we replaced one in over 4 years...

I have used my corded Rapala for at least 9 years and it's still going strong. It does tend to get hot in the hand after a while but cools off quick.

X-2, I bought an extra set of blade only because Mrs.wsj did not want fish blades carving the turkey on thanksgiving. Mine is over 10 years and still going strong. Bought it for cleaning kings in the fall as that was a bit of work for the rapala cordless which works great on most fish.

I havethe american angler it has always worked great. It has the cigarette adapter also which is nice to just plug in the boat and fillet the fish right at the dock. I have also had the cordless rapala and the charger/batteries went out very very quick.

Any of you Black and Decker Fans found a replacement blade that works? I currently use one, but would love to have a thinner blade for panfish. It's way faster than by hand, but would love to have a pointy tip for the fine work. Thoughts?

11 year old American Angler here, running like a champ - walleye, panfish, kings

Old 80's meat carvers, Mister Twister will be next if I can ever kill the American Angler.

how do those electric knives work on your largemouth bass?
can they get the mud vein out and skim that red fatty tissue away as well without tearing up the filet too much?

Good point....that's why I use both. When I have to clean a 100 White bass or 50 bluegills I use the electric Rapala to take the fillet out of the fish and remove the skin, then I use a cheap 7'' Rapala fillet knife to remove the rib cage , pin bones red meat etc. For salmon I only use the 9" Knife (by Knifes of Alaska). I sharpen it once and I can go thru 3 man limit of cohos easily.

Use a good boning knife to do your prep work. No need for cords, batteries, or replacement blades or burning out electric motors. Should last your entire life.

I don't think this is a traditional blade vs electric discussion. Think the op wants electric knife feedback.
But just in case- I will mow through 50 crappie before a traditional knife hits half of that, it's all about the speed baby :D
