How long is too long - part II?

15 posts in this topic

Saw the other post about how long in the frig and thought I'd ask my question:

Went fishing Wed night, caught a nice walleye, soaked it in the frig until Thur night, realized that we would be out of town most of the weekend, so I vacumn packed it but then made the mistake of leaving the vacumn packed fish in the box with the vacumn packer with the intention of carrying both downstairs and tossing it in the freezer.

When I noticed it I was bummed, it had been sitting at room temp for 24 hours, but tossed it in the freezer and since its vacumn packed I haven't been able to use the nose test. What do you think? Edible or not?

I would throw it out too. Bacteria grows extremely fast at room temp.

I'd be hesitant. As mentioned, bacteria grow fast at room temperature and vacuum packing doesn't remove all bacteria.

You could only hope.... smile

Not going to take a chance on getting sick, will just get it out, boil the heck out of it, and feed it to my dogs. frown Then its not totally wasted.

Speaking of lutefisk. Who in their right mind decided it would be a good idea to dry fish and then soak it in lye for a couple days, making the fish so alkaline that it has a pH of 11 or 12 therefore making the fish extremely caustic, rinsing it off, and then deciding it was worth eating?????

Makes one wonder about them Nordic people. Did I say that out loud here in the middle of Minnesota's little Norway? Geese, I hope my neighbors aren't reading this! grin

I hear you Sparce, they used to do lutefisk at that place in Atwater, now they changed hands and don't do it. Mom is checking the VFW in Litch, they used to do it, I'll let you know what I find out. Otherwise Vinje on election night or up at Peace Lutheran in Sunburg, but they're already passed.

    • For many years my dad, uncles, etc have been heading to the Leech Lake area every spring and fall to fish for walleyes. There are usually 8-10 guys that go. Many of them are from the Barron, Wisconsin area. Since I've never really fished in Wisconsin, thought it might be fun to head to there one of these trips. Have always heard the Hayward area is pristine. Does anyone have a favorite lake, or possibly a favorite resort in the area I should add to the list when doing some research?  Walleyes are thing these guys are after.   I know there is a Wisconsin form, but it seems kind of quiet over there, so I'm hoping to get some opinions here.    
    • Well except for the owner. He's kinda ancient!!   We did the same thing with the frig to Dave on the first camper we had.

    • I've done a few things to the old camper in the last few weeks.   First I replaced the old crank jack with a new electric jack.     Then the cooling unit on my fridge went out so I ended up just replacing the 6 cu. ft 2 way fridge with a 9.9 cu. ft. residential electric only fridge.   Next order of business is new tires. Blew one out on the way to Zumbro Falls this weekend    Pretty soon everything on this camper will be brand new! 
    •   Well I never!!!    Caught one that nice!
    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
