Default How fresh is fresh....?

Caught 8 pound king Wednesday. Plan to smoke or cook it today (Thursday). Is that fresh enough for macks? Some people sound like you have to cover it in ice and cook in a few hours when you look at recipes.

Should be fine but I would remove the guts and gills next time if you are leaving most any fish whole and covered with ice overnight. If filleted or steaked and keeping in the fridge over night is no problem.

I leave fish overnight in a cooler all the time. Icy bath and they are good to go.

Ice with no water works better.

Well....
Slushing in brine to supercool immediately is best. If left overnight I usually drain the water. Predatory fish like mackerel have highly acidic digestive juices that will start to spoil the belly meat within a few hours. It's best to gut them if you're going to keep them on ice for long.
