    Hey Kenny, this is what I do to stave off freezer burn: Place them fillets in a good quality ziploc freezer bag. Fill the bag almost to the top with water, then squeeze out any remaining air. Your fish will forever be cryogenically sealed, and will remain fresh into the next millenium.

    yeah, plus you dont have to let them go to waste you can put them in a blender with some chicken livers and make chum out of em. see there is a bright side to everything.

    That is a very sad story. Don't sound like you are eating them fast enough. The faster you eat them the more you can catch.

    Another vote for water in the bag, it really works well. I also put a day/month/year on it with a permanent marker then try to rotate and use my oldest fish first.
