Default F I S H bag

what kind of fish bag do you guys use.

are Polar Bear coolers/bags any good?>

saw a few at the outcast sale (different brand), but the zipper felt kinda funny / hard to close etc.... so I just passed on that one...or maybe I missed a deal and should've go me one... what do you guys use besides your regular plastic cooler.



I have a PA btw.

I use a cfs fish bag. All stainless hardware to mount. I also use a bag cooler sometimes but it is mostly for beverages.

that looks pretty cool. can you stash a king easy on that one? does it have a liner meaning that you can keep ice secure aside from the fish?

I use a PresicionPAK YakCatch bag. They are pretty cheap on amazon and it has worked great for me. I have not had it out for more than about 5 hours but when I got back the freezer packs I put in there (they little plasitc gel things you freeze for coolers) where still 75% or more frozen.

I use the clips that come attached to the bag and clip them to the bungee that holds down the front hatch. Then I put a bungee around the front handle and clipped the rear bag clips to it. It has worked great with fish in it coming through the surf. I flipped a week or so ago coming in and it didn't come loos at all.

There is a pic in a thread I started a few lines down.

Throw back the kings and you wont need a fish bag, at least that was my solution lol.

JD I know what you are saying and I am with ya. too much mercury, and so... bla bla...love the small ones don't get me wrong.. one king a season is not too bad after all.... However...most of the kings i catch are donations to people I know....and they love it...i give flounder away as well and so other fish when i know i wont eat it. I eat my fish the same day for the most part btw... still need a fish bag to accomodate a big ass mango snapper one day....lol...

saw your fish the other day...how do you do it man....

I use gel packs or frozen water bottles they last about 6 hours in the summer. No insulation but the bag is 42" long and 7" tall so it can hold alot of fish. I have put a limit of 5-12lb sheepshead in it they fit fine!

I carry a big cooler on the back of my outback, forget the exact size though. Its big enough to keep a small king in it with just the tail sticking out. I bring bungee straps to bungee the lid down in that instance. Its big enough to handle up to four big snapper. It will even hold a decent mahi as the mahi fold pretty easily.

For the tournament I froze a few gallon jugs of water and put them in my hull and shoved the kings down there. They kept cold enough to where they were edible and I caught them around seven in the morning and didnt get off the beach until after four.

Oh, and if youre giving flounder away put me in line.

I cant figure them out. I did catch some nice ones last winter on some near sure stuff out in the Gulf but I cant catch them in the bays/sound.

I have used the insulated cooler bags before - they worked well but the liners were thin and not fin/teeth-proof.

BTW, Polar Bear coolers are excellent - the liners are tough and they are very well insulated. I have a 24 can cooler that goes everywhere - grocery store, beach, etc and a 12 can cooler for my drinks on the yak.
