Cheap igloos 48 qt. Get a couple they last a couple years and don't cost a lot. Will hold fish up to about 15 lbs. If larger fish get the bigger iglo. Good for one day trips.

We have several: Igloo Sportsman -(16 x 30) heavy as hell but great for holding ice and long days. Igloo Marine - (15 x 31) light weight but also good on Ice for a 8 - 9 hour day. We also brine our fish while out there with a ice and saltwater slurry to avoid white spots aka hot spots on the fish. Drain the water on the way in so the ice packs nicely around the fishies on the ride home. Filet after washing the boat. We never hold over till the next day like some folks. If you do buy a Yeti. We only fish a two man crew but would have room enough for a third man quota of Snappys, mingos, and almacos. For Cobia we take fish bag.

I only surf fish. I was looking at this cooler to sit in the front because my dad took this yellow cart and then made it into what you see with the pvc around it and then my brother put those tires on with the rubber treads on. BTW the pvc cage has rod holders in the top of it built into the pvc and is removable from the cart.

Grizzly coolers here.

I use igloo coolers in my deep freeze to make blocked ice in. That’s the only way I’ve ever known of a igloo cooler to keep ice.

The Coleman Coastal Extreme 120s are outstanding for those who don't want to have to padlock their coolers. SS hardware, lid seal is tight as a tick and keeps ice for several days.

Has anyone tried the Lifetime brand from Wally World?
I've got one I keep in the back of the truck and use when we take the kids to the creek and stuff. It holds ice well and I like the way the latches are designed on the front. The yeti is just way to heavy to lug around and it would end up walking off, so it stays at the house.

the size of a cooler is my next question. a 25qt cooler that I could lay my fish flat in that has the 2 handles on each end or a taller 28qt cooler that is just one handle and it won't matter if my fish should get a little bent.

Change your avatar to Crimson Tide and you’ll start catching fish that won’t fit in a 28 quart ice chest. :whistling:

War Eagle ! I use a light cheaper model / brand of cooler for surf fishing with my cart. I tried taking my expensive heavy duty coolers for awhile.....but they're just too damn heavy to be dragging down the beach.

Won't if a fish get bent will in the cooler if I with a more narrower cooler vs. the fish being completely flat.
It will just a little time when I get home to sit out before I can filet it?
