new into kayak fishing, how do you store caught fish in a kayak, an ice chest would be to big, and a little topsy with a potential of a turnover, any suggestions would be helpful, thanks, Victor K.

I keep a cooler in my truck in which I keep 2 to 3 frozen large elongated spring water bottles. Right before I launch, I put the water bottles into the back hatch on a bed of burlap bags.

Once I catch some fish, I wrap them in the burlap bags,with the ice bottles. Depending on the water/air temp, the ice usually last for 3+ hours.

Ice cold water on a hot day is a added bonus

Talk about ironic situations, if the fish is too big for the hatches on the yak or a stringer overboard, you sir, are a lucky man. Go ashore and ennoy your "kodak Moment" and put your catch on ice. While in the cooler, enjoy a choice cold beverage. Tight Lines and always wear a PFD

check out the commercially made bags for yaks. They attach to the bow and are insulated. Mine cost about &100...works great

I use a milk crate which houses a bucket inside a 5 gallon bucket in my Tarpon 120. I use 2 or 3 1 liter soda bottles filled with ice. There are no trophies yet for me so the Rube Goldberg arrangement works. I'd like to see the yak manufacturers come up with a reasonable and neat solution.

I recently purchased a bag from Costco it is an insulated soft cooler it keeps my beer, bait and fish cold all day it was 10 dollars. The company who made them was called California innovations approx dimensions were 27x15x8. I know costco Ocean twp nj had them all summer but recently sent the leftovers back to some main wharehouse you might be able to get them online. They are also very easy to cleanout and fold down when not in use and have good attaching points. It beats blowing a $100 on commercially available ones unless if you have the money, these work great. Any soft cooler would work I imagine I just liked it because it would lay flat and not take any room up. It also floats for launching mishaps
