Are you looking for electric or old school .

IMHO , you can't beat the old wood handle rapala. The blade has the right
flex and very easy to keep sharp .

I researched the electrics last year
texasfishingforum.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/11269930/

I bought the American angler , too soon to judge over the long haul, but I like it so far

Hey friend these knives are VERY good. If you research steel much, you can see the quality here including laminated blades. http://www.helle.no/

They are pricey, but my wife got a couple for me and they are awesome.

The trouble will be getting to her house in time as it is quite unlikely there is vendor near her.

I use Knives of Alaska filet knives. I have a Coho model (8 1/2") and a Steelhead (6"). I'm happy with them, but if I have a limit to clean (rare in my case) then I whip out the electric. American Angler or something like that.

I have Dexter, Rapala, and Cut Co. Out of all of the m the Cut Co is best, but the Dexter is the best bang for the buck. As far as electric, American Angler is the way to go, none of the gear boxes hold up well IMO.

I saw a Bubba knife at the local Walmart, about $50. Pricey, but I hear they are good.

You can spend tons of money on a knife. Mostly it depends on what you are cleaning. If you are doing crappie, sand bass, bass and stripers less that 10# then buy a Black and Decker electric knife at Wally World. I was told to use that knife by several guides back in the 80's. They don't work very well on big Redfish or big Stripers. I have bought about all of the other knives on the market and always go back to B & D. I got a Bubba Blade for Christmas. I tried it on some fish we caught on PK and left lots of meat on the bones. Good luck.
