Seeing some reports of tuna inshore, I'm getting tempted to trailer to ports south of the bay and make a run for it. Problem I'm just realizing is I don't really have a box fish enough to hold a larger catch or multiples. So wondering what any of us here with smaller vessels do to manage storing the fish for the rest of the trip? Also, who wants to come along? lol

  ... Never had that problem, I had 1 large cooler that fit 3 fish which was the most I had in the boat at one time. Fillets take up less space ...

I have the large cooler..  I never had an issue getting a couple fish in it..  You can always head and tail it. but that portion has to be at the min length..

I also carried contractor bags and a large blanket.. 
if needed i would fill the fish with ice in bag and wrap it in the blanket out of the sun..  If I ever had that issues.. I would be heading in with it right away..

that's a pretty good idea. I always have contractor bags with me and have plenty of moving blankets I can use. I can fit a probably 1 medium size tuna in each of my compartments in the bow and/or I can put ice under the console to use that space.

What would you guys recommend for extra safety gear? Thinking about a raft but not sure where that'd fit either.
