    Skipjack that are properly fozen will last and be fresh for several months. I like to vacumn seal them to retain freshness. The price sounds high to me. Maybe supply and demand.

    I agree with you John. However, I honestly don't know which works better. I have never tried them side by side because if i have fresh, I don't use frozen and vice versa. I CAN tell you that I have more confidence in fresh for what it's worth.

    Because I can very seldom get fresh skipjack, I almost always use frozen skipjack. For years I've simply wrapped them in plastic wrap, but I've got a vacuum sealer now, and I may start using that; seems like that would work even better.

    Vacuum sealed frozen jacks should work just fine. Of course, freshly killed skips are always gonna be your best bet.:wink:

    they cut pretty easily, i only use frozen because of my geographic location, they work fine. 6 for 14 sounds like you got a good deal to me.
