I have a 10lbs of stripers fillet that I'm trying to figure out the best way to store without a vacuum sealer. Any suggestions?

Sink full of water... Freezer bags.

Fill bag with fish. lower into the water and the air will be pushed out. Get it down to the zipper closure and Wha LA !

Good in the freeze for months.

Couldn't wait for the response so I made something up from my other readings.

I have these heavy duty industrial zip lock bags so I dumped some ice into it, dumped the fillet in there, then squeeze as much air out by hands as possible, zipped it up and in the freezer it went. I'm only planning to freeze for 3 or 4 days, told some frenz about and now I got a crowd coming on Wed. or thursday. LOL love those friends when you need help..... eating!

just remember meat should have no air or water/ice in the bag at all the water or ice will cause freezer burns so eat that fish this weekend....beer krusteez pancake batter and deep fry and its on:clap:

Water makes the meat mushy. They still might be saveable.

If you dont want to do the sink trick.. zip it closed against a straw at the very end. and try and suck start it. When it's good and tight, pull the straw and finish the zip.

I like to store them in my gut,but the ziploc shoved under water worked till i got my foodsaver.
