The Kenai is an all-purpose ice chest that will make your life easier wherever you take it. You can tow it on a boat or to the beach, and never worry about spills, bugs, or sun rays keeping your drinks warm. Our rotomolded ice chests can serve multiple purposes. If given the opportunity, Kenai coolers will show their versatility. Have you thought about using them in these ways?
Use A Kenai Ice Chest To Store The Fish You Catch
Fish care is a concern no matter the season. When fishing in hot weather, keeping caught fish cool so their flesh doesn’t deteriorate is critical. On ice-fishing trips when the mercury dips below freezing, our focus shifts to keeping the fish from turning into ice blocks.
Hard-sided insulated ice chests, are great for storing what you catch and keeping your fish fresh while ice fishing in harsh conditions or out in the summer months. The advanced insulation of the cooler, along with the residual body temperature of the fish, keeps them from freezing. You are able to easily clean the fish after a day on the ice. It’s important to keep fish pliable and ready to fillet when you get back off the ice.
Keep food & beverages from freezing. Having a quality ice chest while ice fishing is also great for keeping food and drinks from freezing in the cold, hard water environment. Things stay cold, without freezing, for the entire weekend tucked in the back corner of the shack or under a bench.
Use Your Ice Chest To Keep Your Bait Alive Longer
With the rising costs of good live bait like shiners and rainbows, You need a viable solution for keeping your ice fishing bait alive. A good idea is to utilize a hard-sided cooler. Kenai Coolers work to insulate the temp inside and not allow it to get any colder, a lot like how your house is insulated and able to keep out the extreme cold. The bait doesn’t freeze and yet stays cold, which allows the bait to burn less oxygen and therefore stay alive and healthy longer. This means fewer trips to the tackle shop during the ice fishing season.
If you add a portable aerator to your cooler the live bait will live for weeks on end with an occasional water change. An optimal small ice chest size is a 25-quart cooler depending on the length of your ice fishing trip. In most situations, the Kenai 25 is a perfect fit.
The aerator helps break up surface tension and the ammonia as well as adds oxygen to the water. You also no longer have to worry about the minnows spilling out of a bucket or a bucket getting stepped on and crushed.
Use A Kenai Cooler To Keep Food Hot
Coolers are known for keeping things cold. But they function just as well to keep things warm. Think of the insulation in your house. It keeps the inside air cool in the summer and warm in the winter. An insulated ice chest has the same thermodynamic principles as a house with insulation. After all one of the big reasons insulated hard side coolers are expensive is due to the insulation technology that goes into them. So why not use it for both hot and cold retention? That’s added value for your money.
Wrapped smoked meat for example could easily be transported to a family potluck without drying out or cooling off in transit. Think of the applications for casseroles, turkeys, or soups during the holidays. Not only do Kenai coolers keep food warm on the way to grandma’s house, but they keep spills inside your ice chest rather than on the floorboard of your car.
Use Your Ice Chest As A Weather Proof Storage Box
Not only do coolers keep temperatures in, retaining both heat and cold – but they also keep water out. While maintaining a virtually indestructible frame. For these reasons, your Kenai ice chest makes an excellent dry storage container when not in use for your traditional ice chest needs.
Your ice chest can be used to keep your towels dry when you are on a camping expedition. You don’t have to worry about your things getting scattered or when there are not enough compartments to store your items. A cooler can be used as a substitute. You can always wash it with soap and water before you use it for the normal functions of cooling your drinks or preserving hot meals.
Ice chests can be versatile – limited only to your imagination! Start your adventure today.
