Hi, I'm looking to get a fish bag and am wondering what is the biggest I could get. I don't have easy access to my boat and was wondering if someone could measure the distance from the rear aka brace to the rudder so I can get a good estimate for the length of the fish bag.

Thanks in advance!

From the rear cross brace to the very end of the rudder while stowed is about 71 inches

I am not sure what you mean by a fishbag JG. Does it fit out of the water in the rear storage or lay in the water to keep the fish alive?..Pirate

I want to be able to roll it up and have it fit reasonably well in the tank well, then if I get a fish, I stuff the fish in, on ice, and then put it behind me laying in the tank well out toward the rudder. Everything is out of the water. Just need a way to keep a fish on ice till I get to shore.

Well-that makes perfect sense to me. You`re worried about transporting and preserving/chilling a fish that may be too big for the boat?

Even if you caught such a fish-and also boarded it? Over the Amas... And into the net we go... the fish knows the way... to carry the sleigh
