Looks like perfect thing for us boaters/fishermen

Pisses me off something so simple that makes a lot of sense and not too costly either

Empty quart sized milk jugs work and leave no water in the fish cooler.

Old Tupper Ware containers fill them 3/4 full, cover them, freeze them.
Works great just need unused freezer space.

Or 2 liter soda bottles We just cut them in half to remove the ice.
Works great. Costs nothing except electricity to freeze water.

When living on the hook we use the quart milk containers to keep food in the cooler cool. When fishing we just empty our ice maker bin from the freezer into the cooler.

And the guy is likely selling hundreds of them if not thousands for $1.00 worth of plastic.
Any throw away plastic bottle works great. Don't even remove the ice, that way it does not fill the cooler with water like already posted.
Plus you do not have to have your ice "cube" maker all level and stable until frozen.
Just fill the bottles and toss them in freezer.

Why would ice cubes do that? Fish live in water. We throw our freshwater catch into the cooler filled with icemaker cubes and they never changes consistency before cleaning and filleting them.

Just wondering if fresh water fish are different from salties.

I think he means the fish would be bashed around by the blocks?

Use empty jugs of anything that won't taint the fish like milk jugs. Leave the cap off and throw them in the cooler. Leave the cooler drain open and the water will leak out and lighten as you go!!

I have been freezing bottled water for years and using them in the ice chest. After they thaw a little, I drink them.
