I'll expand that request... can anyone give a review of Yeti or the "claimed to be simlar" coolers like RTIC, Cabelas Polar Cap, Walmart Ozark Trail ... all claimed as "high performance" "keep ice for 12 days" type thingies....



I too am in the market but trying to figure out the right price/performance point.

Did the boat thing yesterday, three casts, three keeper fluke. And four shorts. Hope the beach fishing heats up before it is closed. I'am a land lubber.

I have the Yeti hopper 30, been using it for a few years.it works great, but is a little to big to carry around full, if I had it $, I would also purchase the Yeti 20 hopper for different applications. there is only one drawback that I know of and that is that the hopper is a little yard to get in and out of, with the zipper open there is only a small area to reach into, maybe that will get better over time as the cooler gets broken in . They tell you the usual common sense stuff , like don't put warm cans into the cooler ,prime it with ice the night before. leave zipper closed. Oh and it DOESN`T leak if it is tipped over. I put 20 lbs of fish into it and then put the whole hopper into a suitcase and fly it home from the keys , whole trip maybe 12 hrs and the fish is still frozen when I get home. also I have the Yeti beverage holder and it works like none other, but it also has a drawback, the bottom of the container does not have a non stick pad on it therefore it slides on the surface of a boat, my wife has the large Yeti cup maybe 24 oz and that also is incredible.

Kayaked in western RB at sun up. Tough drift with no wind. Once I started to power drift the action picked up. 16 Fluke with 1 keeper (all released). I just beat the storms. Thank God. They were pretty severe here in Matawan.

Nice job Bill and Bay!!

Went out of Port Jefferson with Cap'n Huner to the Middle Grounds Light yesterday. It was pretty snotty. We managed a few Black Sea Bass and Porgies and I caught a 26 lb Striper. Fish on the grill tonight!

Thanks YD. It felt really good to be back at it now that most of the work is done at my Daughters place. One good think about it is that she's only about 10 minutes from IBSP. could come handy in the fall LOL

I have an RTIC 65qt which is a copycat of Yeti (supposedly the owners who sold the YETI brand to someone else and two years later went off and started a new company after non-compete was up).

No complaints other than this style of cooler is heavy.

The secret to any cooler is to keep it packed with ice and keep it closed. If I do that it litteraly does hold ice for days...and will even refreeze the ice water on occasion.

Wanted to salvage some of the weekend after the big NE blow so we went out Sunday afternoon. The wind settled down nicely in the afternoon and there weren't many boats on the water which is always nice.

The ocean was still unsettled with a big swell so we stayed in Raritan Bay. Had some crabs and clams so I decided to explore some rocks to see what we could find.

No blackfish hits on the crab which surprised me. Not sure if the bay waters are just too hot or because the water was stained.

Absolutely savage porgy fishing by RB standards. Drop and reel four man NY limit being selective on the size we kept in under two hours.
