Gulf breeze walmart has some freezer bags that have a valve built in. I think its zip loc brand.



They also sell a hand pump for like $5 or something. Works good. but i find it just as easy to use the wand on my vacuum cleaner.



Super cheap compared to one of these dedicated uniits like the food saver... expensive sealer, expensive bags. Angus told me about them and they are all I use now. I mean when I was actually catching fish that is

Have you tried the hand held ziplock (no batteries) or the hand held Reynolds (batteries) vacuum sealers ..the sell them at the Winn Dixies..uses a special zip lock bag..both work great and alot cheaper and smaller than the traditional vacuum sealers that take up alot of room ..and not much to clean..

we've always frozen our brim in water. Don't know why, thats the way grandma did it, so moma did it, so I do it.

I used to use the vacuum sealer a lot, but I've gotten out of it. I don't have a fancy one and it takes to long to make a bag. I used to use it when making sausage but it just took to long when making 50-100 pounds of sausage.

I've thought about looking into a nicer one, but they sure are expensive.

this is the way i do it.

1. unused kitchen garbage can

2.regular ziplockbags of any size

fill garbage can with water, place fish in bags about 3\4 full do not seal bag. push bag of fish as far down into the can full of water the deeper the better. you will notice all of the air being pushed out of the bag from the water pressure. move fish around in bag to get all of the air out seal the bag under the water, remove bag dry it off place in freezer. you will be amazed how well it works and the best thing is you dont have to spend an arm and leg buying those special bags. we freeze a ton of fish and wild game every year and have been usuing this method for a long time and i have never had anything taste funny or get freezer burned. hope you try it

I should buy stock in foodsaver as much as use ours. I bought one about 5 years ago and it's going strong. Our freezer stays stocked. Eat the older stuff and restock as it get's low. Saves money. Tastes as fresh as the day it was caught/bought.

Amazon was having a sale on one of the foodsaver units last year, so i went ahead and got one. I love it...although I'll bet some cheaper solutions work really well too. The hand held pumps and their bags should work fine I would think. Freezing fish in water should prevent fish from getting 'fishy', because it prevents air from touching the filets, but it's going to screw up the texture of the fish some.
