    Great job on the rockfish, must be great to get out. I have a feeling my overnight trip next week will get canceled due to weather.

    Reliable

    Honestly, I have two fish holds on my boat. We transfer ice from the bag to the holds when needed. And we moved fish from holds into remaining ice in bag when unloading boat.

    So sorry, I’m not sure but the bag has been used 3 seasons now. Great bag but pricey. We stuff the crap out of it with ice and the zippers are still good.

    Looks like a Reliable kill bag? I have one of those.

    Regarding the rock cods spines, we don't take a chance with the possibility of a punch hole(s), all their fins get cut with a sharp stainless steel kitchen scissors before going in the bag.

    Good on you, Geo. Hope you and the dude had a great outing with some great eats at the end of it. Some paddy yellows around at the moment too, I might add, with a few different sources contributing there. Thanks for thinking of me in all this. I wish you and he the best when it's time to work the river, if they have those asian or bighead carp, bury as many in the yard as possible if he is the garden type (nothing better for the squash etc). He will have standing squash over 48" tall, ask me how I know. If you can, eat some hybrid, white or striped bass when you're back there, trust me on this. Be well dude
