Make sure the cooler does not have the cheap plastic strap-type hinges that will fail before the cooler does...

The molded-in "peg and hole" type hinges will last as long as the cooler does...

if you have a Academy Sports near you they have a good deal on coolers !!!

CP I have the Coleman extreme 5 day 60 quart. It has worked well for me. Handle on the back makes it pretty easy to get around with and fairly inexpensive. Think cheaper at Wally world than BPS.

Make sure you build a bracket or port to dock it in so it doesn't move around when the boat is underway. The one i have slides on my carpet and i know your toon doesn't, so it may be worse. Just a thought.

If youv seen the stick steer boats, the center seat is also a live well. Might ask a dealer if you can order the seat/livewell and adapt it on your toon

Get one that the top will seal and not leak water if its turned up.

Tom, I use one like the Coleman "ice-cube" for my portable cooler if I need additional space for crappie or panfish. It takes up much less space and is just easier to get around with. A client from FL sent his wife's small buck to me here in KY to mount and didn't want to pay to have the cooler shipped back. That was the 1st time I had seen one. Mine doubles as a spare seat if I'm trolling. You know if it will hold up my oversized butt it is strong.

I prefer two small/medium coolers rather than one large wheeled cooler. Easier to move around. One for icing fish, and the other for drinks and snacks. If I need a livewell for minnows, I get a third cooler. A round gatoraid/construction water cooler (5,7,10 gallon are common), the minnows like a smooth circler flow of water.

takes up very little floor space & keeps ice all day.

I look for igloo stuff cuz they usually have foam in the lid and will stand some weight, like a seat or to stand on as a casting platform. I know you won't be standing but it will take the load. Bungie restraints should help it stay put.

Got this one on Amazon. Brenda had a coupon on this one. 10.99 after coupon discount and free delivery to the door.

Never used a cooler on a boat before. Usually use 5 gal buckets. Hope this cooler aint too big. Looks like a big garbage can. I guess I can use frozen liter coke bottles for coolant.

Most my coolers are 6 pack holder types.

That's the ticket Tom. Just like coolin minners with frozen 20oz bottles. Check for the right bungie length.

Good idea. I have lots of them. Looking to see you sometimes this coming spring.

Tom, that is the exact cooler I have. There is a reason it has wheels. Stuff it full of ice and crappie, it is heavy. It does a great job of keeping things cold.

Just dont do like I did and close the lid on the bait and not put an aerator. Apparently they need oxygen.
