    Simple, Measure the Volume, (The cubic inches) inside the kill bag and then measure the volume of "1" 20lb salmon then divide the numbers.

    I have that bag. Here’s the bag with (18) 10-15 lb yellows with some room for ice on top. Salt water slury on the bottom. Gave 1 away at the ramp.

    Except that assumes perfect packing, and leaves no room for ice.
    Here is my math:
    Assume a salmon weighs a little more than saltwater (since it would sink), so say 9 pounds per gallon. That means, if you could pack it perfectly, that a salmon takes up about 2.2 gallons. That bag holds 85 quarts or 21 gallons. So, packed perfectly, and without ice, you get 9.5 fish. But, given imperfect packing and the need for ice, I would say 5-6 fish. Is there a prize for being closest?

    That’s a different approach to figure that out for sure... I use a hard 150qt cooler now and get 8-9 15-20# fish with a fair amount of ice.... just trying to get a cooler off the deck and have comparable amount of fish storage
