Saltwater or freshwater, live bait is sometimes they only path to fishing success – hard stop. As much as we like throwing the latest and greatest soft plastics and hardbaits, there are instances when live bait will outproduce 10 to 1.

To that, EGO Fishing puts their pledge to your capital live bait expenditure with the exceptional and tactical Soft Sided Bait Cooler. (Available in Kryptek TYPHON and POTUS.)

Heat kills. Take a finger temperature test of a bucket of dead minnows against the surrounding water temperature. Pretty certain the upside-down floaters are in warmer water, which means there’s oxygen deprivation.

EGO’s smart Soft Sided Bait Cooler is founded on the principle of maintaining water temperature, which subsequently cuts down on oxygen loss. Internally, the cylindrical wall of the Soft Side Bait Cooler offers generous insulation covered by a soft but durable TPU fabric. The bilayer membrane is waterproof and has a high tear strength as well.

Dare we say the EGO Soft Sided Cooler will be the best mobile bait manager you’ll ever use? Yes.
