I Bought a Kayak Cooler !!!! Is it the best Kayak Cooler ?

  Well it is time I purchased a nice cooler for my Kayak and Canoe fishing.    I actually went and did some Coastal Marsh fishing recently and caught a keeper Red Drum and Flounder and I had Nothing to to put them in to keep them cold!!!! 

   This started my search for a nice soft cooler that would fit nicely on the front of my yak and also fit in the front or back of my canoes.   A soft cooler it had to be especially since a soft one could/would conform to a canoes shape while laying on the bottom.    

I looked at lots of them  online and after reading lots of reviews ( plus I spoke with a kayaker who had one) and decided on the Reliable Fishing cooler.    Now, these are not cheap but you get what you pay for and I decided to spend the 150~ bucks and order one. 

you can get it here -  https://amzn.to/2RJu3gL

Amazon said I could expect my package in like 5 days but it came in two! Great ! I have been waiting on an anchor for over 2 mos ! It must be coming from China!!.

I unboxed the cooler and did a video on it which you can see below and while I have not used it yet, it is clearly a well made cooler though only time will confirm this. I am confident it would prove to be worth the 150 bucks. Anyway check out how well this cooler fits on the front of my Yak ( It will be secured with 2 bungees )

This is on a Wilderness Systems Atak 140


My Unboxing Video.



I will post an update on it after I have put a few fish in it!

Thanks for reading and watching !!  Mack

This Ramp on the Roanoke River  is located In the Eastern part of Halifax county along the Roanoke River just a few miles north of Scotland neck.  This ramp gets the most use during the Rockfish spring spawning run(March, April May) and Some use during
 Shad season (late Feb , March, early April),  and the rest of year it is mainly used for Catfishing and some panfishing. 

Fish found in here may be too many to post but here it goes.   Largemouth bass, Rockfish, Longnose Gar, Bowfin,  Carp, Bluegill, Crappie, ShellCracker, Blue catfish (big ones), Flathead Catfish, Channel Catfish,  White Shad(seasonal), Hickory Shad(seasonal).

The Parking lot has ample room





The Boat ramp itself is very nice and one thing about it is the current doesn't affect your loading and unloading as much as the Weldon Ramp.
