If you plan on freezing fish so do you soak in salt water for a couple of hours after cleaning them the rinse off?

If going to vacuum bagging them do you add a little water to the bag or salt water prior to sealing the bag?

Thanks

I clean/filet, rinse then place in the vacuum bag without additional water. Definitely no salt. They keep well. Used to add water with Ziplocks prior to my vacuum sealer.

Thanks, in this day and age I need to go back to my old days and stock up on some food items and vacuum bagging does very nice at that smile

My buddy adds water, press the freezer bag tight, then wraps in foil. He dates them also. I was given a 2 year old bag to try and it was not freezer burnt.

Thanks, I have vacuum packed cooked beef and pork but I was not sure how to do fish. I have a couple lbs or pork chops and burgers in the freezer now and I hope to add fish but the fish will be raw.

Fillet them, rinse them off, pat them dry and vacuum pack them. They will last a couple seasons if you get a good seal on the bag.

Thanks, I have kept beef and pork for up to 6 months before I ate it and not problems with taste and quality.

I like using the rolls of bags that have 2 smaller bags side by side for individual size servings

I clean and wash well. Put in a gallon freezer bag with water. Press the air out and freeze. I donโ€™t keep it to long. I live at the lake so I catch and eat it fresh..
