Yea haven't seen a stringer since back when I used went fishing with my grandfather. We even lost the whole thing overboard one day with about a dozen fish on it. funny part is my dad wound up catching the whole stringer and bringing it back in the boat
I found this soft sided cooler at k-mart earlier this year and it has a build in silver colored liner that's made to kill bacteria. I've thrown all kinds of fish in there this year and just sprayed it out with the hose. It smells brand new. I highly recommend them.
