How do you keep your fish that you are going to eat while you are fishing? ( Ice chest with ice, live well, bucket, etc.)

I keep my catfish and fresh water Reds on ice in a ice chest . If I am fishing for White Bass or crappie they go into a live well.



Side Note: When I am fishing salt water all of my fish go on ice in a ice chest.

In a plastic left over "ice bag" in the ice chest until cleaning later in the day...then put the cleaned fish in a sealable bag & back on ice...

I have a mesh bag that hangs off 2 D rings on the float tube. I put them in there if I want to keep them and they stay alive in the bag. As soon as I get out of the water they go in a cooler with ice and I clean them as soon as I get home. I normally don't clean them at the lake.

Throw them in a bucket of water as I catch them,then in a ice chest when I'm done fishing.

When I'm keeping some fish, I start out throwing them in the live well. When I have 10 in the live well, I start throwing them in the ice chest.
