Amish Outfitter bags are extra strong I have the same bags from when I purchased my 31 Tiara in 1999, call them and they will give you the correct size for your boat.

Another vote for the Amish beefy bags have had them for over 3 years and have never had a problem and when i storlle them i toss them in the bottom of the boat and cant even see any sign of wear.

Go with two smaller bags rather than one large bag. You will have better speed control as conditions and/or water currents change. You can run none, one, or two bags as conditions dictate. Rig one for each side. If you're experiencing strong currents or winds that are causing your boat to crab sideways while running one bag, make sure you have it out on the upwind side of your boat not the downwind side. (If it looks like your port diver lines are getting pulled behind your boat put the bag on the starboard side, and visa-versa).

I run the Amish Outfitters bags, but Big Papa are good also. Whatever you buy make sure it's a trolling bag and not a cheaper sea anchor, they won't hold up over time.

Check your local boat canvas place. They may have scraps that they can make bags out of. Harley in Tawas City made mine.
