One of the most popular applications that coolers are used for is fishing. When coolers are exposed to beach or lake elements, they are oftentimes put through some unique scenarios, which is why fishing coolers are quite handy. Figuring out the best fishing cooler isn’t an easy task, so we are here to help break down the requirements and offer up our top choices.
Common elements such as sun or water exposure can be amplified, especially in marine settings with sand, saltwater, and potentially high winds. Also, since in many scenarios the fishing cooler will be fully exposed to the sun, it is important to have very good insulation performance to help maximize the ice life for the contents inside.
Depending on how long you plan to be on the water and what sort of size and exposure limits you are after, many conventional coolers simply won’t do. Because of this, several ice chest companies have created marine-oriented coolers that are better optimized to deal with the unique challenges of being on the water.
There will be certain variables that change from person to person, and it is important to establish those beforehand so that you know what to look for when shopping for your next purchase.
How much space will you need? Since this will be your primary source of cooling in many cases, make sure that you leave ample space for both food and drinks as well as any other random items that you need to stay cool (medications, fish bait, etc.). We also recommend going with higher levels of ice if possible since the last thing you want is to run out of ice while in the middle of the lake or ocean. Just to be safe, consider bumping up to the larger size.
Boats obviously can be limited in how much space they have, and walking areas can be precious. Examine your vessel and see how much space you realistically have for a fishing cooler, considering that it can be extremely annoying and also dangerous having to constantly walk over a cooler that is blocking the entire walking area. For your assistance, we have listed out the dimensions of many of the top coolers on the market.
