Blood and Guts All over the place

Post by Ribfisher »

Well when boat or shore fishing you can't help but get blood and guts all over the place
supprising where it ends up.

we now use a tub that can be bought from any large DIY or builders merchants for not a lot of cash.

We use them to put and carry fish off the boat.
drop the landed fish in the tub to unhook it . that way the fish is not sliding all over boat .
they can be carried in one hand and have a multitude of other uses.

Carry bait and lures in them as well
And very handy if you catch a few fish as two people can carry it between them. saves struggling with loads of bags.

OURS ARE FIXED TO THE BOAT SAVES THEM SLIDING ABOUT AT ANY SPEED.

they have another use mate. I personally stand my rods up in the garage but last year the rod bags got wet etc. so this year i stood them in buckets to stop the wet getting them and this winter they have been dry so far.
Might have to invest in one of them tho it looks huge.

its hard to explain but its nearly almost impossible for them to get water in unless you store your rods right near the garage door when it is left open and raining

They are called Grinner Buckets. Dont buy them from supermarkets as the plastic is inferior quality and the handles snap. Go to a builders merchant for the proper ones.
