Where do you put your fish when kayak fishing?

Bass I caught on the Coosa

What’s up guys, Luke here. It’s great catching some awesome bass or cat on a kayak, but the question will soon arise, where do you put the fish when you fish on a kayak? While fun, kayaks do not offer the space that larger fishing boats offer (I know, you’re saying “thank you captain obvious”). I have found out a few different ways that anglers go about doing this:

1. Kayak fish cooler bag

With a fish cooler specifically designed for kayak fishing, you are able to lay it flat on the kayak and even tie it down if you’d like. These bags are insulated with one layer designed for ice packs, and the inner layer designed for the fish. Just catch, and throw them in the cooler, and they will stay fresh.

2. Stringer

Some anglers just hang a stringer off their kayak. What is good about a stringer is you can keep the fish alive in the water while fishing.

3. Strap down a cooler

If you’re not catching huge fish, why not just grab you a small rectangular cooler, fill it with ice and strap it down?

Well, there are 3 simple ways to store fish on a kayak. If you have a way that you prefer, please comment below and let others in on the secret! Thanks!
