Wanted - Fish bag for mackies

Looking to buy a fish bag mainly for mackies/ palagics. Long / skinny and prefer the triangle shape rather than the flat style so it can stand up without leaking.

 

Does anyone have one for sale in the metro region?

 

thanks

Madfish bag

See separate post here...

Previous year we had the BCF bag. We brought that back as ice melted very quickly in that one.

It seems as the foam in the BCF bag between vinyl linings acts more as a spacer than as a insulator.

Instead we bought the large Madfish 150L bag (120cm x 35cm x 40cm).

It's fantastic.

It looks big empty. But not when full and we were also able to carry off boat without it threatening to break.

$325 and really worth it.

Even empty they take up space

Spaks - suggest you actually "map" out with tape measure where it will sit on your deck - width, length and height.

With the thick insulation in the lining they get chunky.

Because they end up 'getting in the way' sometimes with a fish coming round one side or other side within seconds.

This is why we park it at the back of boat deck behind large ice box... because you can't reach over baitboard/powerhead etc anyway.

Cheers.
