please excuse this dumb question (but ill ask it anyway)

What you do guys do when you catch sth big and want to keep it. ie: mulloway.

Do you have a BIG esky in the car? where do you put it? Im just curious

 

It is very obvious from this question that i have not gotten anything big enough lol

 

please keep in mind that im asking this in the landbased thread.. no boat answers please thanks

Pack a couple of big garbage

Pack a couple of big garbage bags in the car. Then it's easy to tip a bag of ice in and keep in the boot.

I use black plastic rubbish bags. They are reasonably tough and don’t leak. Then I deal with the fish at home. But I got to use it just once so far. :(

Ive used the black plastic. Two or three bags to cover, fill with ice. Hessian is also a +1 for me.

100l

Mate I carry a 100l from extreme coolers in my car, it has come in handy plenty of times for this.  I also have a couple of hessian bags in my car that I also use and could be a substitute for an esky if you have to do a long walk into a spot.  when wet hessian acts like air conditioning with a bit of a breeze.

one way to guarantee a big fish is leave the big esky at home;) I did this the other week and a mate proved this theory by pulling out a 13kg mulloway, we used the hessian technique for that 1

I use one of these. Granted

I use one of these. Granted it goes on the boat, but would sit across the back seat of your car no worries.

Wed, 2011-12-21 16:53

Catch it, photograph it....and bang the fillets off it....nothing special....just leave the frame etc at the beach/rocks and sort it out at home...should be able to fit in a small esky then.

thanks for the replies guys... ive never put much thought into the "getting it home" phase... few good ideas here (except for the glory claiming) lol.

 

imo black rubbish bags sounds like the best option.. disposable - my kinda word
