Pros & Cons

Nice alternative to the traditional stringer

I got my fishwell this winter in preparation for the white bass run that occurs every Jan-Feb in the Central Texas area. While I usually don't keep fish, I decided to give it a try this year after sampling some friends local catch. I am not a fan of stringers coming from a salt water environment, so I began to look for different options. After finding the Today's Tackle Fishwell with some internet research, I decided to give one a try. There are a lot of things to like about the Fishwell as a kayak angler. First and foremost, it floats, which we can all appreciate, especially if you have ever paid Davie Jones before. It is also made of a durable mesh that had a nice coating so spunky fish and their spines won't tear it apart. The velcro closure at the top and the side zipper make for easy in/out access and the carry straps make it a cinch to rig up to your trolley or cleat to tow around once you have inserted your catch. It does create some drag in the water, but that is the price we pay as kayak anglers without a live well like our powerboat friends. When your done for the day, the bag collapses easily on itself and stores extremely compact. After putting this bag through its paces this winter and spring, there is minimal damage from several white bass that have inhabited it at some point. My catch stayed fresh every time and I am never going to use a stringer again. I would like to see a larger model for saltwater applications where I could keep a slot redfish or trout in the bag. The current model is only going to hold crappie, white bass or lower slot black bass. Nice product and one that should be considered if you keep fish and despise a stringer like I do.
