Has anyone had any luck with these types of bags? I know there are quite a few different manafacturers of these bags but does anyone have any personal experience with them.. Ive narrowed it down to the "Reliable" Bags..

May be a bit optimistic but im looking at the big boy at the bottom..

Any input is greatly appreciated as Im gonna spend some cash on this sucker.

overtime.

It's a decent entry level bag.I have used them a couple times on a buddy's boat and have had the stitching rip out on the grab handle when I pulled on it,although there was a few yellowfin in it.I prefer my 12+ year old CANYON product bags that I have been using forever that are still like new have the liner-w-drains and plug.These type bags can be had on ebay from time to time you just have to be patient and watch for them to come along.Good luck:)

I have 2 C&H Marlin sized bags and just bought a medium sized bag from bass pro shops for $100.00. We used both bags last year when we had a triple header of eyeballs and they worked as designed. Space is limited on my rig so we fill one to the top with ice and throw it up on the bow - easily holds 500# of ice - we leave the other one stowed down below. Can't compare their quality to others as it is the only one I have tried.

We bought one last season. I may not be much help because I can not recall the Brand and the bag is no the boat. But it came highly recommended as it had two very useful features. One was a drain plug and the second was a flaired bottom, so it would almost sit like a oversized swollen suitcase. The flaired bottom feature allows it to hold more fish and ice for the over all dimmensions of the bag. That is compared to the flat envelope style bags. I hope that makes sense.

Have a Reliable and works reasonably well- nothing like a well insulated fish box but will ice and keep fish cold for up to 24 hours- had a Canyon Bag for three years- tossed it after it had leaks in the interior lining that diminished the ability to keep ice/fish cold- I'd go with the Reliable from Charkbait if you can't fit a high-end cooler like Yeti on board.
