Cooler tips for keeping
your catch fresh.
Polar Bear Tubes
Getting ice is always
a problem or inconvenience. This will show you how to make Polar
Bear tubes for your cooler. These modification are to help you
keep your fish fresh and chilled while saving money on ice and
worrying about where to find ice when you go fishing. The cooler
is shown with a false bottom to keep your fish from laying in
a pool of water or blood while you are out fishing, especially
should you purchase additional ice. The modification includes
a strap for keeping your cooler safely closed while in transient
with out the lid blowing open. The setup includes Polar Bear tubes
made from 2 inch PVC pipe with standard end caps cut to fit your
freezer space available to freeze the tubes.

webbing with quick release buckle using screws to attach to cooler.
First measure your freezer space to see what is the maximum length
your tubes can be and see what your maximum cooler length is so
you can custom fit your Polar Bear tubes. Make Polar Bear tubes
from 2 inch PVC pipe available at your local hardware store. Includes
a 20 foot 2 inch PVC pipe end fittings and PVC glue. When assembling,
fill with water but not full (88% maximun) as you will need a buffer space
for expansion so you wont bust the Polar Bear tube when freezing.
Keep everything clean in case you need these Polar Bear tubes
as an emergency water supply. Glue end cap on one end of Polar
Bear tubes and let it setup for a hour. Fill with water to 88%
and glue on other end cap. Keep it vertical so that cap can set
with out being in the water.
I made 6 Polar Bear tubes
for my big cooler that are 21 inches each. Make as many Polar
Bear tubes you like.
