I have I have the 40x90 mainly due to lack of deck space for a larger bag. It is very well made. Won’t fit larger fish obviously but you could get them mostly covered up and out of the sun. If you have the deck space I’d go bigger. Looks like the 40x90 is on eBay for $299.
I have a 28ft. Jason . Price and deck size are a consideration . Thank you

Nothing about these bags - bags can be great but I wouldn't buy one if it couldn't fit at least an 800 lb fish.

Just an FYI if on a budget a roll of 4 ft duct insulation works pretty well for the inshore day trip bluefin game. You can tape yourself up a big envelope ahead of time or just cut off the roll when the time arises. Bungee cords to wrap them up nice. Disposable or use the same piece a few times.

Edit - the link below is kinda pricey. Should be like $40 at Home Depot for 25 ft and they make 50 & 100 ft rolls even cheaper.

Basically unlike canyons we typically don't sit on fish long enough for ice to melt much and I've never seen a bag really cover a giant like a slush tank anyway.

Anyone using a waterproof bag to creat a slurry ? sSlurry bags look real expensive, I guess it’s all about watertight zipper.

I also use a concrete curing tarp. $40 rather then $500-$1000. Has worked great the times I used it this year.
