Bring a cooler, but not 12 coolers. One large cooler and maybe one small cooler if needed. How big/small ? 80 qt for drinks and if you need more room 24 qt. or less for food. You won't need a cooler for the fish on the boat. I have that. You can have another cooler in your car or use your drink cooler to take your fish home Consolidate wherever possible to save space.
