How much fish do you have in the freezer?

Recommended Posts

Seeing and hearing about people taking multiple daily limits, I wonder how much fish people eat fresh or stack up in their freezers. I love to eat fish, my favorites being gills, pike, and crappies(no I'm not a big fan of eating walleyes, and yes I was born in this state wink.gif) I have no problem with people who fish for meat, or are all catch and release. My personal beliefs vary on the lake, area, pressure, species, etc. I will keep fish, but not all the time. I have 2 ziplocs containing fish in my freezer, one containing a small pike, and one with 6 gills. Each of these bags will constitute one meal for my household. That is my limit, until these fish are eaten I will keep no more. Just curious to what others think about this subject.

I don't have any fish in my freezer, I don't eat 'em, I love them too much. Seriously though, the only fish I do like to eat are trout, kind of strange, since they have kind of a fishy flavor, I think it's the texture.

2 freezer-burnt redhorse
1 not-so-freezer burnt redhorse
all 4 leftover and not-so-freezer burnt medium sucker minnows from my last unsuccessful ice outing.

Cut-bait.

One slimer, two walleyes and eight crappies (crappies in two packages). we have two licences and my wife catches her own. This is more than normal for us, but fishing was very good this holiday season.

Don't forget if you catch 10 crappies in the morning and eat them for lunch you can't catch any more that day.

Right now, I have about three walleyes, a limit of bluegills, one laker and a few crappie in my freezer. I ate fish twice in the last week. I fished today and released them all. Not too hard when all you foil is an 8" walleye and small perch....Keeping a small cache in the freezer is always incentive to go fishing for me. Besides that, they're much better when only kept a short time. It would kill me to have to throw any out because they stayed frozen too long.........

Aquaman.....How do you fix redhorse? Do you use the cedar board recipes? (Put fish on board, cover with foil after seasoning and adding butter, cook @ 350 for 45 minutes, remove from oven, remove redhorse from board and then eat the board?).........T

It gets you thinking when people you know have a huge fish fry every year. When I go to them I have to think if they ever wonder about their possession limit. Mabye I am wrong who knows?
Lets not start a shouting match again over possession limits.

Right now I have 25 crappies in the freezer. I generally don't have any fish in the freezer, because I usually eat them within a couple days of catching them.
It is nice to have some back up fish for the days you want fish but don't have any fresh ones after a day of fishing.

Eat the board - that's funny!
No...the Redhorse are a head-start on my frozen cut-bait stocks. Not as good as fresh cut-bait, but reliably on-hand. Makes good emergency aquarium food, too.

    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
    • Not unlike most years.....
