Imax Bait Bag

I purchased my medium size Imax Bait Bag last summer on the recommendation of one of my fishing friends and it has turned out to be a very handy little addition to my collection of fishing luggage, helping to keep live worms and frozen bait in top condition throughout some very hot summer fishing sessions.

The bags size (9 in x 7 in x 9 in) is perfectly adequate for most anglers and the well thought out design provides three separate compartments which makes this bag much more useful than if it had just had one main compartment. The lower and top compartments are fairly small (the bottom one is apparently designed to hold the freezer blocks and the top one is for your sandwiches) however I found that the main compartment is plenty large enough to hold bait for a days fishing and still has room left for some cool blocks so I prefer to use only the larger of the three for my bait which then leaves space in the remaining two compartments for items of tackle, rags, fish bags etc.

As with the Imax Waist Bass Bag the quality of the materials used to construct the bag is very good and on my example the stitching has remained sound despite a great deal of abuse. The compartments are sealed using heavy duty zips which have behaved impeccably not giving me any trouble at all so far and as well as using heavy duty rot proof material for the outer construction of the bag, Imax have included an inner thermal lining to each compartment made from some kind of silver cloth. Quite what the lining is I don't know but it does seem to work as an insulator and has the benefit of adding additional strength to the bag.

To finish off the bag Imax have added a very practical and sturdy carry handle, constructed out of webbing and hyperlon foam which is attached to a webbing reinforcing on the top of the bag and this, along with the adjustable webbing shoulder strap, make the whole thing a doddle to transport up the beach even when it is fully loaded. At £7.99 this little piece of kit won't break the piggy bank, represents extremely good value and is likely to withstand a good few years of use and abuse.

Overall Mark: 10 / 10 - Well worth £7.99 of anybody's money.

Alaska offers some of the best sport fishing in the entire world. To make the most of an Alaska fishing expedition, though, you need to plan ahead.
