They should be OK however the flesh will be softer than normal.

I sure hope they don't go to waste.

If a guy is going to go fishing, keep a pail of them, you should have a plan to have them cleaned.

I wonder how many times this happens????
A guy gets home late, decides to clean them tomorrow. Tomorrow comes, now they are really slimy and looking cruddy and end up in the garbage can.
If they were kept cool they should be fine, so don't dump em in the can.

If you have snow...put em on snow. They will be fine either way. If they are on water, put a batch of ice cubes in the water.

I always throw my fish in a pail of slush or ice chips. If I don't think I'll be cleaning them as soon as I get home, I make sure the fish are distributed through the slush evenly and when I get home I put the pail in a cold spot (but where the pail won't freeze). I've found that fish stay fresh in there for a couple days, and many times crappies will still be alive after 2 days.

Ever been to a fish market? Ever been to one that isn't on the east or west coast? Fresh fish? Yeah, right! They put 'em on ice too...or when they ship seafood to inland cities (i.e; Minneapolis...) they're on dry ice...you should be alright, as long as the gills are red and they don't smell bad (as stated previously)...

Just a follow-up, the fish did not go to waste. I figured they were less than 18 hours old and were kept in a slushy five gallon bucket. In fact the majority of them were still alive. Good eatin!! Iceman out>

essox, You got it! smile.gif I always ask people, "How Long is a chinaman" They give me some goofy answer, then I say again "How Long is a chinaman". Then they get mad. Then I say "How Long IS A CHINAMAN". They still don't get it. It's a statement, not a question. grin.gif

Manhole....

How about, because manholes are round, thus the reason the manhole covers are round.

Pagz, you're abolutely right! More geese on that side!..........One more easy one...A man and his son are in a car accident after a Father's Day outing. The hospitals are full, so the father goes to one, and the son to another. The surgeon walks into the son's room and says, "I cannot operate on him, he is my son". How can that be?

If the dog is currently in the woods, the first step he takes, he will be on his way out...

If anyone has hardcore evidence proving this theory please let me know...
If a tree falls in the woods and there is nothing around to hear it fall, does it make any noise?

No dirt....Would'nt be a hole!

An electric train is traveling due east at 20 mph, the wind is blowing out of the east at 40 mph.....Which direction will the smoke from the engine go?

Key word is "electric", no smoke! No dirt in a hole is correct...A dog would have to run to the halfway point, then it's on its way out. smile.gif.........A man has a chicken, fox, and a bag of corn. He has to get them all to the other side of a river with his boat. Besides himself, only 1 thing can be in the boat at a time. The fox would eat the chicken and the chicken would eat the corn. How does he do it?

-next bring the fox over and bring back the chicken
-next bring the corn over and leave the chicken alone, leaving the corn with the fox, go back empty
- get the chicken and bring it back
