For people wanting to bring in fish, here's how to freeze fish for best freshness. For small fish such as blue gills, perch and crappie, freezing them in a gallon size ziplock with water to make a solid block of ice will prevent freezer burn for years. Freezing larger fish for taxidermy works best if the fish is wrapped in a towel soaked in water and then put in a plastic bag. Squeezing as much air out as possible. To protect the tail, it should be sandwiched between two peaces of cardboard. A fish frozen in this way will last up to 6 months and in some cases up to a year. If you have any questions don't hesitate to call me at 715-630-4059 and I would be happy to talk to you about freezing fish for Taxidermy.
