I live on the Big Island of Hawaii (west side), has anyone with a 190 Outrage boated more than 1 ahi, if so where and how do you store them. Perry - as you may know Kona water is calm most of the year, and on a good summer day 2 to 3 can be caught.

I fished on my friends 17 Monauk, we were able to fit 3-100 plus ahi, and some aku into his surface mounted fish box. On that particular boat the center console was moved forward, to allow room for a 74"L x 30"W x 28"H fishbox.

Hilo boy, I have a 100 quart cooler in front of my console. I fill it with ice when I troll off shore and stuff my folded 6 foot fish bag getween the console and cooler. When I catch fish, I add ice when needed and drain some water out of the drain plug on the bottom of the fish bag.

I have put 2 ahi in the bag once. One was 73 lbs an the other 87 lbs. As you probably know, yellow fin tuna burn up ice fast so it is good to have lots of ice on hand.

I have seen traingle shapped fish bags that can easily hold several big ahi, you just need to have enough ice on board to keep them cold.

Perry...Thanks for the feedback. Will probably settle with the 190 Outrage w/ the 150 Verado. Hope I can get the proper service out here on the Big Island...
