Kill Bags
(or the more politically correct, Catch Coolers?)

Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)

Kill Bags

We're indeed proud to bring a much needed new product to our private boating clients, the new Kill Bags.  These things save space on your boat, and preserve your catch for proper eating pleasure.  In the past, private boaters either had some deck space wasted with a cooler, or perhaps a fish hold that could be better used for other storage purposes. Lack of proper insulation resulted in either damaged meat or fast consumption of large amounts of ice. Either way, it's a pain in the keester, and another inconvenience brought about by limits in space and design.  Here's a solution to a basic problem faced by fishermen: a well insulated kill bag

Our Kill Bags attach to your rear cleats, hang off the transom and rest on the swim step.  They're made with insulated heavy duty vinyl scrim material that is water/moisture resistant and are sewn with SunGuard UV protected thread.  The 1/2" waterproof insulation material has excellent thermal properties, they really do keep the cool in!

The bags are bloused out at the bottom for maximum capacity.  They have a drain in the bottom and are zippered on top with tie downs in the top corners.  They save space, they preserve your catch, they work well.  Just dump in a few pounds of ice, toss in your catch, and keep the deck clear for more fishing.

We've had some requests for a slightly shorter kill bag recently.   Depending upon your boat, it's swim step depth, the following bags might be a better option. The bags are vinyl coated using 18 oz heavy duty nylon.  They use 1/2" dense closed cell foam, with drain spout.  They use UV and mildew resistant thread material for long term use.  Both Reliable and Precision make a great bag, the best we've encountered.  This supplier constructs their bags a little differently, with a bit more support with their straps. But, really both suppliers do an excellent job and offer quality products to us, and to you.  One thing for sure, they are well made, and we like 'em! If you were going to hang one off the back of your boat, and you didn't have a transom for it to sit on, I'd opt for the Reliable and I'd be inclined to go with one of their shorter bags.

I've used these bags quite a bit, the larger 72" bag will hold fish for 24 hours with a few pounds of ice.  I've been out three days with 2 10# bags of crushed ice in the bag, and had the fish in perfect condition upon arrival.  The block ice would have done even better.  I've used these on my own boat, as well I use my smaller kill bag instead of an ice chest when heading out on a long range fishing trip out of San Diego. The bag stores much more easily in my trucks cab while I'm on the water, and upon my return I toss it in the back, load up some ice and make use of the 1 day service from Five Star or Mario's back at the dock. One thing I should mention, the bags are sewn/stitched, so there's some water that leaks from the bottom or corners. This is the way they are supposed to be. Don't plan on 'em being a dry bag in the back of your Suburban. You can use some silicone sealant and reduce that "breathing" but that's really not the way you'd want to go for use as intended on a boat. Allowing the water to slowly seep out is a good thing for the longer term purpose it's designed for.
