OK I saw an add in Big 5 for pool ice chests that float. So I went for a look and found they were inflated, one round in shape the other rectangular. The latter was to big and I didn't like the design of the round one. My purpose for one would be to put fish in, rather than have them dangle from a stringer or other such devise. Inflated would puncture from gills and fins, fish flopping around. Not good.

Has anyone attempted or experimented with this topic? I've seen attached and towing platforms of various descriptions. GT

I have used one of these with no problems at all. The lid is made out of plastic with a hollow cavity so it floats.

But if you're set and really want to use a floating cooler I have seen these at bass pro. I've never tried them though. I just like how they look.

I have also used this DIY one as a live well for both caught fish as well as bait fish. Not at the same time though LOL

Here is one I built out of PVC and a laundry basket. It was too tall so I shortened it up a bit. I also put a lid so the fish could not jump out.
