Kayak fish storage
« on: June 05, 2014, 08:30:35 AM »
I haven't seen this topic around the forums and thought it would be interesting to see what everyone is doing for storing fish if they are taking a few home for supper.  I know many of us are C&R fishermen but I still take a few walleye or pike home for a good fish fry.  Where do you put the fish? In a cooler?  Off the side attached with a chain?

Fish I keep, get put in a plastic bag and chucked into a soft cooler bag
with ice packs and other refreshments. Best to get the fish on ice,
and if a bit of slime gets on the refreshments, oh well.  :)

On longer hot days I have started using a fish bag mounted to my bow.  You can put some freezer packs into it and the fish bags from Precision Pak are also insulated.

Kill the fish (fish club) and cut it's throat to and let it bleed out before putting in the bag.

I have a Precision Pak like the one pictured above. Its pretty nice. The Canadian Tire here has them for $20.  I just throw a couple frozen water bottles in.

Those are all pretty good ideas, how does a stringer work? I'm only in freshwater

I used a stringer for the first time this week...it was only for a few white perch. may not work as good with a larger fish

I started using a plastic stringer (less noise) and had no issue with 6 walleye on it. I think I need to keep a cooler in my car for when I plan to transport them home though. I had to stop at a store to grab a bucket and some ice the other day to transport the fish home.
