Default Fish Bag

Been looking at different options for keeping fish cold in the kayak. I used to just dump some ice or frozen 2 liters in a construction trash bag and throw it in the front hatch, but it was kind of a pain to get to and pretty bobo. I like the catch bag coolers that strap to the front of the yak, but I can't justify spending $60-70+ on one. It got me thinking about other soft-sided options though and I came across these Ozark Trail 50 can cooler bags at Wally World for $5! Figured I'd give it try...

No issues yet, but I don't think it is very puncture resistant. I'm waiting for some fins to pop a hole in the liner.

Default Fish Bag

I use a similar from sams. I place a garbage bag in the cooler put the ice on the outside of the garbage bag. Then if I catch a fish, cleaning is a simple hose out, guts in the bag and done.
Some fins put a hole in the garbage bag .

That's a good idea... keeps your beers from getting all slimy too!

Use those frozen ice packs (medical grade if you can, last much longer) instead of ice..I use a Boone bag and bunch of medical ice packs so no water, no cost of ice and last all day in direct sun

Don't have the medical grade, but I do use some of the ice packs along with some frozen water bottles--they sure are nice to have when you get back to the hot car... the heat has been brutal already this year

That is the same bag I have used for years. Eventually fins will poke holes in the liner and water will seep into the inner part of the bag. No biggie. Just takes a little longer to dry out after a good water and bleach soak after use.
