Inexpensive Fish Bag
« on: June 20, 2013, 06:09:36 PM »
  I just got in my order for a Boone Pro Series Monster Bag, size Small.  I never saw or heard of this bag but saw it on the Bass Pro site, read very favorable reviews on it, and decided to pull the trigger.  It measures 19" x 58" and fits tight in my Scupper Pro front hatch (the bag fits perfectly across my Ford F150's open tailgate).  They have bigger sizes, but after measuring the inside of my hull, I'm glad I went with this one. 

  The construction looks decent and sturdy, with thick vinyl material on the inside and out, a drain plug, and what I guestimated as 1/2" of insulation.  The heavy duty zipper runs across the top which will make it a hell of a lot easier to open from the front hatch vs the ones that zipper across the top then down the side. 

  The cost was $118.69 from Amazon, reduced from $150.00, and at that price, the bag looks well worth the money.  I'll test it out tomorrow and hopefully will have something to put in.  At the very least I can see how the ice holds up.  At least now I won't have to paddle straight in if I catch something decent.  Aloha, and hopefully this helps someone on a tight budget.

I had a comparable bag that was only 40" long. They work well

We have a feeling that the new car smell won't be for long! :) :)

Unfortunately the bag was not bloodied.  I got a few aha's but said nah and threw them back.  I threw in a #7.5 bag of ice, was in the water for 4.5hrs, and was left with about 1/3 of the ice.  Not bad, insulation wise. 

The other good news was the water stayed in the fish bag and didn't leak in the kayak.  To double check the water tightness, I left the bag on sidewalk while I washed my gear and no leaks.  All in all, great bag for the price.

$120... inexpensive??!?!?!? No wonder you guys get angry wives, thats absolutely ridiculous for an insulated cooler bag shaped for a fish and/or yak.

Nice bag though, get what ya pay for  8)


If you are still around, hows it holding up?
