    I like to scale, gut, clean, then season and grill bass whole.

    This is how i prefer my 'gills as well. If they are fried correctly, a feller can skin a pile of meat off em with 2 forks in a hurry.

    I had a berkley that I bought 10 years ago. It finally broke this year and I upgraded to the Rapala lithium cordless. I'm a huge fan of the Rapala. I was averaging around 50-55 fish per hour with the Berkley. I can get 60-65 with the Rapala.

    How does the batteries hold up, I looked at that one and the Bubba , I got enough Cabela bucks to get either, but was worried about the Battery life.

    It says 80 continuous minutes of runtime. I went ahead and got the combo with an extra battery. If you've never used lithium, it tends to die without warning. Wide open on second, deader than a mackerel the next. I've cleaned probably an hours worth and I haven't had to charge yet.

    how much is the combo and what is included? the bubba comes with 4 sets of blades, carrying case and extra battery. picked one up yesterday for $149. if Rapala is a lot cheaper, may return it.

    I had a Mister Twister for 20 years before it wore out. I have the AA now and love it. I do wish it came with adaptors to hook it to 12 volt system.

    I was listening to Cal's podcast(one of the meateater guys, not the coach) other day and he mentioned a knife Steven rinella designed with benchmade co. Supposedly a do all knife of the highest standards. Well, it darn well should be at 300$!! I do like the design and blade is supposed to thin enough to fillet or remove silver skin from a backstrap but sturdy enough for the rest of the butchering process. Anyway I thought it was to steep when a feller could buy a couple electric knives and fillet/boning knives for 3 bills. Didn't mean to derail the thread just letting you guys know about the knife.

    No, I think I paid $160 or so. That was with 2 blades...a 6" and a 8". I won't ever use anything other than a 6" blade for bluegill & crappie. I don't like longer blades for those fish. The combo had a case and an extra battery, with the 2 blades.
