Whether chasing crappies or cobia, walleyes or wahoo, all anglers share two common needs: live bait must be frisky, and fish harvested for the table must be kept cold. Smith’s Consumer Products – the Edge Experts since 1886 – addresses both of these needs with a full lineup of heavy-duty, insulated fish and bait bags that made their debut at ICAST 2022.
Each of Smith’s insulated bait and fish bags is built for long-term performance in both fresh- and saltwater. Every bag is constructed from heavy-duty, washable, marine-grade tarpaulin both inside and out, enclosing a half-inch of dense, closed-cell insulation that keeps the cold in – and the heat out. Non-corrosive zippers and pulls promote durability and long life, while integrated drain ports keep your catch fresh and ready for action at the cleaning table. Adjustable shoulder straps or multiple sets of handles make it easy to carry bags loaded with bait or fresh fish. Select one of four different insulated bait and fish bags based on your needs – and the size of your catch.
With a capacity of 35 quarts, Smith’s Mr. Crappie Chiller Insulated 30-inch Bait and Fish Bag includes thoughtful design insights from Wally Marshall to address the needs of crappie and panfish anglers. A universal aerator mounting loop and a leak-resistant hose port ensure that live bait remains cool and well-oxygenated. An adjustable, padded shoulder strap makes loading and carrying your catch or bait a breeze. This insulated bag measures 30 inches by 15 inches with an 8-inch, gusseted, sit-flat bottom to keep it upright in the boat or the truck. Smith’s Mr. Crappie Chiller Insulated 30-inch Bait and Fish Bag has an MSRP of $169.99 and was featured in the Hard and Soft Coolers Category in the ICAST 2022 New Product Showcase.
When targeting larger freshwater fish or for handling limit catches from multiple anglers, step up to Smith’s Insulated 36-inch Bait and Fish Bag. With a capacity of 50 quarts, this insulated bag also includes a universal aerator mounting loop and a leak-resistant hose port as well as an adjustable, padded shoulder strap. Measuring 36 inches by 18 inches with a 10-inch gusseted, sit-flat bottom, Smith’s Insulated 36-inch Bait and Fish Bag has an MSRP of $199.99.
Saltwater anglers will appreciate the enhancements found in Smith’s Insulated 48-inch Bait and Fish Bag. This 130-quart capacity insulated bag features two sets of center padded handles with two large end handles for up to a four-person carry when fully loaded – perfect for hauling heavy catches. Easily remove water to keep fish fresh and ready to clean, or quickly rinse fish right in the bag to reduce mess, with the integrated drain port. Measuring 48 inches by 26 inches with a 10-inch, gusseted, sit-flat bottom, Smith’s Insulated 48-inch Bait and Fish Bag has an MSRP of $299.99.
Offshore anglers shouldn’t leave the dock without Smith’s Insulated 60-inch Bait and Fish Bag. This masterpiece of bait- and fish-hauling engineering has a gargantuan 205-quart capacity, making it perfect for moving snapper, grouper, wahoo, and even smaller tuna to the cleaning station. Four heavy-duty grab handles – including two center padded handles and two large end handles – allow for a four-person carry when the bag is fully loaded with ice and the catch of the day. The largest member of the family, this magnum fish bag measures 60 inches by 30 inches and has a 12-inch, gusseted, sit-flat bottom to keep it standing upright in the boat or truck – and next to the cleaning table.
