    Been decided we are moving away from tarps and blankets and are getting tuna bag for the boat.

    Any recommendations in brands or ones to avoid?

    John Muller at Canyon products was great to deal with. He gave me a great deal on a custom bag fit my fish box.

    Fisherman's Outfitters in Gloucester has a nice bag for short money if you have the ice!

    Tightlines tackle makes a good one for a great price.

    Agree on Tighlines... have used one for a couple years...well thought out - just straps and velcro. Talk to the owner Dave if you have questions:

    A little late, but the poor man's solution that will get you by just fine for a few fish is to buy a 4 X 25 ft roll of the bubble duct insulation for about $40 from home depot or lowes.

    Lay the fish down on it, pack the ice around it, a few bungees to wrap it up, and you got a fairly well taken care of fish - not for days on a long George's trip but certainly until the end of the day on a Jeffrey's trip or even longer, the ice just doesn't last as good as it does in a $300 bag (which is still a joke compared to a real coffin or hold).

    Almost anything will work - one time we forgot the bag and used my sleeping bag on a fish literally for a full 24 hours and it stayed cold, we got good $$ for it even :).
