How do you guys keep your fish when you are saltwater surf fishing if you don’t have a cooler?  And a stringer from the belt is not an option?  Ive read that you can bury in the sand but I am specifically talking about surf fishing in the southern heat.  

Need a cooler. Surf fish come prepared. I go with my brother at times and he always has a cooler of ice for the fish. Or just let them go!..

How do you fish without cold beer?
Remove and consume beer from cooler and cram fish in a soft cooler!
I had a small soft cooler in a large plastic garbage bag to prevent leaking that held 5 beers with a few refeeezable blocks and some loose ice. That fit in a bottom pocket of a backpack I hijacked from my kid.
My system was sweet! Small tackle box and water shoes fit in top pouch. Headlamps nd multi tool in small top poker with keys and cell phones. Two rod holder in the "bat" pockets that strapped tight and even allowed me to put the rods in while walking out

Cold beer goes in the small cooler section of my tackle backpack.  Good for a a six pack and some ice.  I just never want to cram the fish in there.  Ive kept them on a stringer or in a laundry bag if i am in calm water inlets. Im talking out front with some surf.  Last summer i had an osprey dive bomb a mackerel I caught that I had tied off to some driftwood.  I guess I should stop bitching and just bring a small cooler designated for fish and beers.

Chef has a fancy cooler bag/backpack that is much bigger than mine. This little guy did the job (2 fluke)and you can just carry it empty smashed flat until you need it.
Striper would be a struggle!!!

Been there done that… caught a 34.5 in striped bass. Walked it back from the Jones beach jetty with the tail sticking out of the cooler.

It's chilly but not awful. I swam in it. Fueled by a few beers it's not terrible.

Last minute excitement for me that starts with a 2:01 alarm clock and a 2:30 jog to
montauk to join my buddy, his father and son on a charter for striped bass (and hopefully fluke and sea bass).
Massive amount of deer in the drive out; one glorious 8-10 pointer
Hoping to update later with some pics!

I did a quick analysis of the moon, sun, rut, and tide charts. Looks like a good day for black bass and stripers. Looking forward to pics.

Steamed to Block Island and were into 40"+ stripers trolling jigs on lead right away. After the four of us boated above slot fish and we got a slot double, we switched to sea bass - some massive porgy were released and a few mackerel were kept for bait. Just did a morning trip and had nonstop action- back at the dock by 10:00.

I needed a break from driving (good enough excuse) so I stopped at Jones beach and managed 5 short fluke and 2 robins.
