It has to be at least 7 feet long and safe to hold ice.
Background: it is very hard to transport a large musky to a taxidermist. They need to be kept moist and cool.
Coolers that would hold a 6 foot fish are not practicle and are very expensive. One could make a cooler from green plywood to transport one but a thick waterproof poly bag might be better. You could just roll it up and have it when you need it.
