Saw some discussion about after market fish holds for the 2320. Does anybody have any pics? Thanks
Here's some pics of aftermarket side boxes, which are interesting as they gravity drain over the side. And one of a cool kill bag rack which is a good solution. I don't have any pics of cut in aftermarket fish holds.
I just put the second biggest kill bag on the swim step. keeps the deck clear. And on the way home, i just bring it on deck. saves a ton of space.
The idea came from the Greenough boats made in Goleta.They did a nice job but Ill stick with my kill bag.
Like the 2310. Already built in and a ton of space if you want to make it bigger.
@uglybayliner has built a couple of those kill bag holders for oUr boys up here. Solid work!
Just had a friend pickup a 2320 and wanted to know: What make and size fish kill bag do have? How much ice do you carry when you go out? How do you secure it to the swim step?
Thanks, in advance, for the information.
See attached for the bag size.
I carry about 100lbs of ice in a 130qt cooler that sits on the roof. I just secure it with a bunjie cord. nothing fancy. it does lean against the kicker motor bracket though
Thank you for the reply. I will have him pickup a 240 Qt. model. I also just realized that I have watched a number of your You-tube videos, which I appreciate (keep those coming). Have a great season and I hope to see you out there.
That's the one i use on my swim step as well. Works great.
A few of the guys up here take out the head in their 2320, and then slide the big kill bag up into the berth for running back in. Rides better with the weight up front and center, and fits perfectly. Not a bad option if you don't mind the back in the cabin.
I use a kill bag and always take alot of ice, usually 160 pounds but sometimes 200 pounds. Ill put the fish in the built in fish box to bleed out then into the kill bag to get really cold. I buy my ice at San Diego ice company behind the sports area.
Unless I am just fishing Pargo and Cabrilla I've decided the fish hold on my 2310 is pretty much worthless. It is way too short for most of the longer fish such as Yt, Dorado, wahoo, etc. Then if the hatch can't close all the way invariably a clumsy friend will forget and step on it, popping the screws out of the hinges. Then the final kicker is the drain is at the forward end of the hold so its a bitch to drain.
Just opted for a kill bags that I cleat to the starboard side. I keep the boat slipped when I am in La Paz so getting ice can be a hassle because block ice is only available at the ice house. Instead I freeze a 4-5, 1 gallon jugs of water which are easy to transport. Once I start adding fish I add saltwater to cover the catch. Last me all day and the fish is always firm and never mushy
