FOR THE DAD WHO LOVES TO FISH AND WILL USE ANYTHING STORE BEVERAGES:
Whether fishing from boat, kayak, beach, bridge, dock, or pier, fish bags—or what are often called “kill bags”—are a convenient way for storing and transporting the fish you keep. Transferring fish from a boat’s fish box to a cooler and then to the location where you clean the fish is much more efficient if you store and move the fish using a fish bag (plus, if you put your fish directly into the kill bag, you don’t have to clean the fish boxes on your boat). On the beach, pier, kayak, or bridge, putting fish into the fish bag makes transportation easy, and the insulating properties of the bag keep fish fresh, unlike using a bucket.
Not only are these bags necessary for fishing, but they also make a great beverage cooler, and who doesn’t love an ice-cold drink?
