    Default Fish bags??

    Anyone try using a fish bag like the Canyon fisherman use? Thinking of picking one to keep halibut iced down, no fish hold, they don't fit in cooler after 70lbs. The Canyon CANB22 should fit 100lb halibut I'd think., without the need for a 250+qt cooler on board all the time. Fish bag stays folded up until it's needed, and would hang/lay on swim platform.

    If you lop off the head and the tail first you can fit two or three 100lb halibut or five or six 50lbers in one of those bags. The B22 model is the one I have.

    I've only used them for tuna- winter bluefin in the Atlantic and ahi in Hawaii. But they sure kept the ice well, even in Hawaii. If you can get flake ice (salt added) from one of the canneries, it keeps lot better than cube ice. Days even. John at NP has it, I'm sure.

    If anyone is interested i can have those bags custom made to any size you like. I have a sample bag at the potbarn if you would like to see the quality of the construction. I will also have the bag with me at the outdoors shows so stop by and take a look.

    Now that pot is legal in AK you might want to trademark "potbarn."

    Potbuilder do you think you could get a square one made that would fit in a fish hold and have a lid. Kind of like a soft side cooler but custom fit to the hold?

    Might be handy to have one made that will fit inside a Barney's Moose Pack. I use my pack for hauling dipnetted fish, after filleting. Coolers are a hassle where I fish, but the pack is ideal. A pack liner that holds ice would be perfect. I wonder what something like that would cost?

    I'll try to do that, unless someone beats me to it. How do these bags work, anyway? Does all the ice sit in the bottom, or are there baffles to keep that from happening? Also how thick are the walls? I'm wondering how much interior space I will lose. I would probably line it with a trash bag, so I don't really need the cleaning nozzle or anything else. Really just a simple bag with a couple of lift straps to pull it out of the pack.

    Think of them as being a high quality collapsible soft sided cooler. The insulation is aprox 1/2" thick, no baffles just a open interior, shape can be made to just about any shape you want, i'd think for your needs it would be the same shape as you packbag, so lets say a rectangler box with a zippered closure on the top end. I have a sample bag they made for me and i will bring it to the show for you to look at. I'll try and post a pic here later today also.
