I have been in this scenario before. One limit of trout averaging 2.5 to 3lbs each, with a few over 5lbs will never fit in a 48quart or a 50quart. you will be lucky to get 17 fish in that thing. i had to hike a levee back with a rolling cooler with 10 fish dragging in the landing net that couldnt fit in the cooler.
