Boone Monster Fish Bags
Decent For The Money
So far I've only used this product once. I'm not extremely happy but it's better than just throwing your fish on the deck to "sun rot" or an ice chest that's WAY to small.
I was out on the water for less than 24 hours (a very overcast day, the sun never came out and temps never went above 65 degrees). I started out with 60# of ice in the bag and had about 5# when I got home (no fish in bag, just ice). Not sure what's gonna happen when the sun comes out and it's warm outside.
Maybe I need to start out with more ice since the bag is so big. That may help the ice last a bit longer. Maybe throwing a block of ice or 2 will help as well. I had a friend that bought the same bag and tested it the same weekend and he also had the same exact results.
Overall, I would love to say it's worth the money, but I'm not sure if I would buy another Offshore Angler kill bag. As of right now (keep in mind that I've only been out once with this bag, I might find the "magic" combination to make the ice last longer), I would most likely bite the bullet, spend the extra money and purchase a Reliable kill bag.

I used the bag once for the King of the Beach king fish turnament in Saint Petersburg, Fl. The bag took a beating from boat to scale including being dragged along the grass. After cleaning the bag at the end of the day everything was still in good shape. The zipper did open up on its own in the middle of the bag, but was easly fixed and did not open a second time. The zipper is my only concern for future use. Time will tell. Good fish bag overall.

I bought the 70" bag for my brother for a gift. His boat does not have insulated fish boxes and it is a challange to keep fish cold all day when offshore. So far this bag has worked great. This past week he caought a 150 lb 68" Blue Fin, temp 75 degrees. Without the head the fish fit great, little snug at the gerth. Was in the bag for three hours and when removed still had lots of ice. In the picture the fish is in the bag on the floor.

Great bag - I have used it for two years now and have found it to keep ice all day - Packed with fish( 4 striper and 1 blue - 100lb) to the point that it was very hard to zipper and it has taken the abuse carried it to the fillet table 100 yrds down the dock. I do wish it had straps for two people to carry it when it is packed this tight but its not really needed.
