I just noticed a negative review about a boat that did not have ice on the fish for all day on the boat. I believe this can be traced back to the goofy rule that the fish must be brought back to the dock to be cleaned. In the past, I would have the mate clean my fish as soon as he could and put the fillets in a ziplock in the beer cooler. I guess most boats do not have the space or big enough coolers with ice to keep all the fish ice cold for a whole day fishing.
Being "forced" to use the fish cleaning station at the dock just makes no sense at all.
