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.

Since when did you become a bunnyhugger?

    • Did well fishing today. Pitching jigs to the rocks in town produced fish. Also headed north up river and picked up some fish there. Released the females and kept a 2 man limit of males.  Couldn’t have asked for a better day of weather to be on the water.    
    • No pictures tonight because my phone was on the charger but I made no flip, smoked, hamburgers like this. ....   https://grillagrills.com/recipes/no-flip-burger-recipe/
    • Pfunk, I can take one of those jakes out for you! Slow first day for me, just one gobbling at the thunder.
    • You don't need one of those, they're overpriced anyway. Any smoker will do.
    • Thanks Dave. Sure wish I had one of them expensive fancy pellet grills.
    • yep sucker em with gobble call or gobbler yelps on a diaphragm ,they fit nicely in a deep fryer !
    • Man what a frustrating day. Had a pair of jakes that decided to spend their day in our vicinity and they ran off a pair of toms that were cutting across the plowing headed for us this morning, then this evening we were pretty confident the nicest tom we saw today would be headed past us to get back to the roost and sure enough... he followed the script. As I was readying the gun on him those 2 jakes decide to come out of the woods, he sees them, and dumps into the ravine with them chasing behind.    EDIT: Now 3 times they have run one off. That tom just made another attempt to sneak his way in and they ran him off again. Never wanted to shoot a jake as bad as I want these two gone.
    • O i know they can be.  I have a good CO and fire detector.  I had one in my last house and it worked good.  I dont plan on doing much sleeping in it maybe a few times a winter.  
    • It's basically how chicken is cooked for bbq contests.   I started out by trimming excess fat and skin off the chicken thighs. Then I make a brine of water, salt, brown sugar and franks red hot. I like to leave the chicken pieces in the brine for at least 4 hours.    I heat up the grill to 300 and melt 2 sticks of butter in a cake pan. When the grill is preheated and the butter is melted I put the chicken pieces in skin up but some do it skin down. I sprinkle my rub seasoning on the top of the skin and under the skin. Cook in smoker at 300 for about 1 hour.    Take pan out of smoker and take chicken out of butter. Dip each piece in bbq sauce and sprinkle on more rub and put back on grill for about another 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked to about 165-170.
