    Heres a little DIY tip for you if you would like to freeze them yourself.

    Equipment:
    Large Cooler
    Ice
    Rock Salt (ice cream salt)
    Fish
    Vaccum Packing supplies


    Vac pack your fish then take your cooler that is 1/2 to 3/4 full of ice and dump a generous portion of rock salt over it (same as you would to make ice cream). then place the vac packed filets on top of the ice and close the lid tightly, they will be frozen solid in less than one hour (depending on thickness of filets). make sure that you only layer them one layer thick, if you want to freze a lot of fish you can do it in layers.

    For a lot:
    Put 4-6 inches of ice in the bottom of cooler and add rocksalt, lay in filets one layer thick and then cover with 4-6in of ice and add rock salt then add the next layer of fish, etc.

    Its a good way to save some money. Hope this helps you out.
