I recently had my hip replaced and I need to avoid certain activities for the next 6 months. I have a cooler on the boat swim platform for the fish. It is difficult to remove the cooler while the boat is docked and put the cooler back. I spent a lot of time of researching other methods and bought a Chiller Bag from Australia for about $133 US dollars, there are other vendors that make fish bags. This bag works great, easy to carry fish, easy to clean, is insulated to maintain ice and I use it to carry ice from the truck to the boat. The model I bought is the smallest length that they offer and for me is the right size for Lake Michigan fish

The Micro Chiller Fish Bag BRAND NEW at Otto's Tackle World Drummoyne
Condition:New
More than 10 available / 3 sold
Price:AU $184.95
Approximately US $132.76

Interesting! I hadn't considered a bag, but it would be better to lug around than a cooler. I'd probably just toss the bag in my cooler since it's already a convenient place, but at least I wouldn't have to wash out the cooler every time, just the bag. Or, I'd not FORGET to rinse out the cooler and get knocked overboard by the smell when I caught my next fish six 70
degree days later...

I wonder if they are water tight or if they leak?

I have used it 3 times, with 1 bag of 7 lb ice, no leaks and ice was still in bag after 7 hours. Have had up to 15 coho in the bag. I was going to put in cooler but have found it sits on the rear of the engine compartment near the transom with no issues.
