I received my Stackfish Big Fish Story Contest prize on my doorstep the other day. It's a large Boone insulated fish bag, and I do mean large. 30" x 65" to be exact.

It's really going to come in handy aboard my boat. My large center fishbox is great for larger fish and it holds alot of them, but its not really insulated well. I have thought about a few different ways to go about adding insulation to it so that ice will last all day or over night on those really King trips. I've done the old trick of adding salt to the ice, it has even frozen some fish it got so cold, but the ice melts after a few hours. This bag fits great inside the fish box, insulation issue solved! It had a drain plug so I can just drain it into the fish box, and pump it out via the fish boxes macerator.

I'm going fishing Saturday morning, Fluke and a few Black Seabass are my targeted spicies, which I usually just put my keepers into my livewell , keeps them alive until I get home most times. I'm going to test out the Boone bag with a few bags of ice on the hot summer day and see how long it lasts. I'll keep you updated.

Thanks Jimmy and everyone at for adding to my fishing addiction.

About Fishin Dude
A little about me
I was born and raised in central NJ. My earliest fishing memories are catching Panfish with a cane pole, followed by Catfish with an old Zebco enclosed push button reel on a 3 ft pole using hotdogs as bait. Alot of time has passed since those days. I now travel to fishing locations by car, boat, or aircraft, instead of bycycle or a ride from my parents. I have met and swapped stories, tips, laughs, and tears with a variety of fishermen worldwide, from all walks of life, and made great friends too.

Go to Freshwater Top Water Lure
Rapala Skitter Pop
This is my go to top water lure that I have caught numerous species, both fresh and salt, all around the country.
Anything that swims
I will fish for anything, anywhere, anytime.
My targeted species
I'll actually fish for anything that swims, crawls, or even rests on the bottom , in any water, anywhere, anytime.
Bunker Chunks
When fishing Bunker Chunks for Stripers and Bluefish, I cut them into 4 sections. The head, fished on the bottom usally catches big stripers
Whiteleggers for Tautog
One of the best baits for winter Tautog fishing is hands down the Whitelegger crab. Fished whole, half, legs on/off, bite changes day by day
Green Crabs
Green crabs are a great, inexpensive bait that catches many species. Generally used for Tautog, I used them for Seabass, Cod, and Pollock.
I love vintage Penn Reels
I own alot of tackle, both modern and vintage, and fish with both. Old Penn Reels are my favorite, and if it's a lefty, even better.
