I recently acquired waht looks like a 8' long fish bag. It is made by Da Kine Hawaii. It is 8' long and about 3+' tall. I could get inside this thing and have room to spare. Anyway I was trying to find it online and have not been able to find anything. The only bags I have found are for surfboards, so I was wondering was this indead a insulated fish bag or a surfboard bag? It has a drain if that helps. The tags are still on it but do not say what it was made for. It is very padded.

Thanks

Da kine is a surfboard bag company that made fish bags for about 3 or 4 years. They were fine bags but I guess they did'nt do the kind of business they wanted to do with them. I would say it's been about 6 years since I sold one and I think I got some of the last ones made.

This thing sure looks like one hell of a fish bag. The cap is missing off the drain, but I figure I can find something. I hope to try it out this weekend (going to Venice).

Thanks

Mr Staal

This is definatlyNOT a surf board bag. I checked with Da Kine and just like Anthony said they made fish bags for a few years. This thing is insulated not just padded. Besides thatwho ever heard of a triangular surf board. I love it when people talk about things they do not know about.

I still have the one we used on the Maria Del Carmen a few years back we bought it at Outcast. It is a fish bagbut the only bad thing about this one, it is Blue. Great for stickingfish in you could not get in the fish boxes which were usually loaded down with ice.Cleaned up good and held ice fair ,would have done better on the ice if it had been white.

Here are the pics

read em and weep

Rectangular, 3/4 inch thick on each side, drain hole, no spot for a fin, not pointed like a surfboard (or any of the other dakine bags). Just goes to show ya, not everything is on the internet.

I also have not found any triangle shaped surfboards, maby a triangular nose but not a triangle. I also asked Steve Stack of stack shaped boards and he did not know of any, but if they do exist I would love to see a picture.

Thanks

I used similar fish bags when I lived in Hawaii - I even wholesaled some for a while. They are also called brine bags and they work great - just fill up your fishbox or cooler with ice, heep your bag rolled up inside the cooler and when you start to catch fish or catch fish too long for your cooler/box (remember, in Hawaii they keep and eat a lot of the marlin), throw it in the fishbag, dump in a couple 20-50# bags of ice, a half cup of hawaiian salt (sea salt) and dump in half a bucket of salt water. Within about 10 minutes, the fish is ice cold and the brine is like slush. Just need to add more ice every hour or two or more often if you're adding more fish.

For a full day of trolling, I would usually pack 200-250# of cubed/crushed ice, and a few 20# blocks. It was enough for my best day, when I caught over 600# of mahi and ono (wahoo). Also works great to cool off those big ahi (yft) quickly.
