Silver Horde ’ s KatchKooler

T he KatchKooler is one of the most popular items for Northwest Steelhead and Salmon anglers . Thousands are now in the hands of anglers .

The small boat angler who doesn ’ t have room for a large ice chest in his boat , the large boat owner who doesn ’ t want to share his food cooler with a dead fish or the bank angler who wants to bring his catch home in prime condition have found the Katch- Kooler the solution to keeping their catch in fresh , prime condition .
The KatchKooler is made from high density close cell foam . It ’ s made with waterproof fabric . BUT , it leaks and is designed to leak . All fish bags do ! There is nothing that will destroy the flavor or texture of your fish faster than allowing it to lay in warm water .
So , to use your Katch- Kooler correctly , do the following things : The KatchKooler has two compartments . One side for ice , the other side for your fish . Upon catching your fish , place them in a plastic bag and put them in the compartment opposite the compartment where you have your ice . Lay your bag so that the
ice is on top , as cold travels down .
If you are using ice cubes , you must drain the water from the bag occasionally so that your ice will last longer and water doesn ’ t collect around the fish .
The best ice packs for your KatchKooler are either the blue Ice packs , chemical frozen ice packs or even better , save your money and freeze your own ice in heavy sided plastic bottles . Since we throw away hundreds of plastic bottles a year , you should have no problem collecting more than you will ever need . The best bottles to use are flat and broad . Fill them about ¾ full and add a teaspoon of salt to the water before freezing . It will take a little longer to freeze , but will be at least 3 degrees colder than normal ice . By using bottles , blue ice , etc ., you will not only protect your catch from bacterial degradation , but also preserve the quality of the flavor of your catch .
