Any easy way to patch a weigh bag that leaks in the corner? Its a crappy cheap Berkley bag but being the lousy fisherman that I am, it doesn't get used much. Still I don't want to buy another. I had a nice vinyl one before this one and it also leaked in the corner. Thanks in advance for any suggestions

Berkley bag is junk! Mine leaked shortly after I bought it.

Yep, bags leak, tried a lot just stick with what you have and move fast. You can pay more but it will leak too. I have a body bag, and at least three stanbys, and it leaks in places too.

Yeah bass fins will end up breaking/piercing thru almost any bag. You'd think by now someone would have made a more resilient weigh bag...

As to repairing your current one you can try putting some of that flex seal tape on the outside of the bag. Those commercials sure are cheesy but that tape stuff actually works. I wouldn't want to put anything on the inside that might chemically cause issues with the fish!

Gorilla tape weatherproof. Stuff works pretty good

The Flex Seal guy on TV says he can fix it.

Here is a sure way to fix it.
1. Make sure bag is empty
2.Throw in nearest trash container
3.Drive to your nearest Bass Pro or Academy
4.Park car in safe place.
5.Go inside and buy a new one

See that is an easy fix. You can thank me now.

Repeat process when you find out it leaks too.

Mix up some five minute epoxy.
Dip that corner in the epoxy.
Let it dry.
