hi - wondering if anyone has found a good fish cooler bag for the bow of the i11s?
was thinking about the hobie medium bag:

hobie small bag:

or possibly this seattle cooler bag:

anyone have any experience with these?
thanks!

actually, this icemule one is looking kind of perfect...i need to inflate the i11s and measure the bow.

i ordered the icemule procatch in small. it's 22 inches long (rolled? i think?)
it should fit well on the bow of the i11s. i will keep everyone updated :)

oh, if anyone is curious: from the fore end of the drive well to the bow handle attachment is 28 inches give or take.

for the record: the icemule bag strapped onto the front of the i11s very nicely.
it did change the hydrodynamics of the boat somewhat. i found that in medium chop the additional weight on the bow caused more water to wash over it.

otherwise it worked really well, and kept my keeper fluke nice and cold :)

hey! so after a couple trips, i found that clipping the bag upright behind my seat worked better than mounting it on the bow. i fish mostly in jamaica bay in nyc, and the waves get too active to have the bow dipping. if i was fishing in a lake or somewhere flat i would attach it there again.

overall, the icemule bag has worked very well for me!

Thanks for the feedback! We have the same Icemule bag. Never used it for fish but it works great at keeping drinks cold.
