Default Insulated Fish Bags

Canyon, C and H, Strike Zone, Reliable, Sea Angler, Boone, Smith, OPI. Who makes the best one and why? What size do you own? Do you like the drain in the bottom? Does yours completely unzip open for easier cleaning?

Like the bottom drain. Only one I have used is the C&H and never had a problem. Used multiple sizes from them. I can't say it is better than ones I have never tried but I have been satisfied with the C&H bags. Currently have 3 I think.

I've used most of the ones on your list and here is my take. The C&H bag is a good one for the $$ They can usually be found for 75-80$ if I am not mistaken. My 2 favorite bags (they are huge and hold ice for longer then any other bag I have used) are the Canyon bag and the Kingfish Koffen bag. If I were in the market today I would also check out the new Ocean Tamer bag. It seems to be made as well and with as much insulation as the Canyon and KFK.

I see Engel makes fish bags as well. Poveromo gave one away at the recent Saltwater Series Seminar.

I have an OHO 30"x72", only used it once - seemed to be okay. I bought it over the Canyon Bag because, I will likley only need it 1x a season (after the 13 cuft box fills up), and Tackle Direct had it for $99.

I have had a couple diff brands, they were all similar as to insulation, closed cell foam, what breaks are the zippers and or zipper stitching. Take of those and they will last a long time.

The Reliable fish bags are shaped like a purse. They have a one foot flat bottom so will stand on thier own, strong straps and zippers, drain and several sizes to choose from. The 30" x 60" will hold approximatley 15 to 16 albacore with ice. (Fish in the 20 to 22 lbs range)
