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 Stackfish.com for adding to my fishing addiction.
