Coolers are becoming more and more prevalent with the gear that kayak anglers use these days. Kayak coolers makes perfect sense as it offers us the ability to carry drinks and snacks, but also serves as an easy way to store those stud fish that get invited home for dinner. Granted, a cooler too large won’t fit in our limited storage space, but cooler companies are making coolers more specific to kayak angler needs. Give your special kayak or SUP angler a new kayak cooler this Christmas.
Coolers are a perfect tool for kayak anglers to use on fishing excursions. They serve several purposes from carrying drinks and grub to extend that kayak fishing trip, and also give the angler storage capabilities for those epic catches you bring home for dinner. While kayak coolers can be expensive, their value isn’t diminished the slightest bit.

With Engel’s new Live Bait Cooler, your minnows, shrimp or other live bait will always be ready for action, thanks to our powerful 2X2 Air Pump and insulated cooler box.

Yeti Roadie 20
Small but mighty, the YETI Roadie is the best personal cooler you’ll ever find to protect your drinks from the heat.

The Roadie is even grizzly proof. Take this sturdy little portable cooler with you to the job site, or play hooky and head down to your favorite fishing hole. It’s also right at home in a campsite, kayak, canoe, ATV or golf cart. The small Roadie cooler is the ideal size to BYOB, and the No Sweat Design prevents any embarrassing messes. The unbreakable, self-stopping hinges keep the lid propped open while you fish around for the perfect pairing.
Yeti Hopper 20
The YETI Hopper™ 20 is a personal, portable, anything but soft-sided cooler. Easily transport at least 18 icy cans to the links, the lake or your next tailgate using the sturdy handles or carrying strap. Unlike other soft-sided coolers, it’s puncture-resistant, leakproof and sports an anti-microbial liner that resists mildew. Plus it keeps your beverages cold for days thanks to an inch of closed-cell foam insulation on the sides and 1.5 inches on the bottom.
