Learning to properly store your fish after preparing them is one of the most important things you can learn to avoid freezer burn.
Most people don’t give much thought into how they freeze their fish. They just throw them into a large Zip-loc bag with or without water and chuck them into the freezer. This can work just fine for short-term freezing, but for the long term you need a better way to avoid freezer burning your catch.
The guys at Thundermist Lures demonstrate how to show everyone a quick trick for freezing fillets away for both long and short term to keep them as fresh as the day they were caught. It is very simple and very effective at preventing freezer burn.
Although I now have a vacuum system to seal all my fish and game before putting them in the freezer, this is how my friend’s dad taught us how to store not only fish, but deer meat as well to keep it fresh. If you don’t want to use newspaper, freezer paper like butchers use works just as well if not better.
Next time you are putting away fillets or other wild game keep this tip in mind and give it a shot for yourself.
