Cutting bait?

Fileting?

Clams?

 

Mora is a great knife. $20.  

I use a cheap Rapala filet knife and a Dexter clam knife.  

Dexter makes a decent filet knife. 

I like my knives to have sheaths. Just for safety & edge retention.  Except clam knife. Thats just a tool.   I bring all 3.  Mora on my body, rest in my bucket or bag. 

Top to bottom

 

Mora Companion Stainless partially serrated. 

 

Rapala 6in filet

 

Dexter clam knife. 

I got them all on Amazon. Not sure about amazon links but they're not hard to find.  99% sure each is under $20.

I had a mora on my belt for a long time although it will rust quickly... but for $13 it will do the job.

 

You really want a spyderco salt knife but they're pricey.

$15 Carbon steel Mora.

 

If you dont foresee yourself rinsing and drying it off each day,

then....

 

$15 Stainless steel Mora.

 

If you absolutely have to spend big money on a knife, 

 

Get a $15 Mora and a custom sheath.

Check out Divers Direct they have good prices on dive knives. If you plan on swimming with it I would suggest a titanium one.

@PeteA if your plannin on this don't listen to me! I can barely swim to begin with.

The Aqua Lung squeeze lock knives are a good place to start looking. Make sure it has a blunt tip and one edge is serrated in case you have to self rescue. 

ditto

 

for a smaller affordable safety knife, Gerber River Shorty works well too

sheath can zip tie horizontally on belt

caribiner through handle for lanyard
