Fresh Fish Fillets!  How to take my Catch home with me.......

If you plan on taking your fish home with you, then bring down a lightweight, well insulated hard sided Ice Chest with a hinged lid.

Airlines require total weight with fish to be 50 pounds max per cooler. Used Ice Chests may be available in town and Ley Supermarket often sells a basic chest for 50-60 dollars. 

Many fisherman bring their clothes down in the empty chest to save airline baggage fees. Bring a duffle bag for the return flight for your clothes or donate your used clothes.  

Your Captain will fillet and bag your fish. If you want certain type of freezer bag, bring it. Some Captains have vacuum sealers and you can bring the sealer bags. If important to vacuum seal, bring the sealing machine also!
