    Just wondering what would you do with all the fish?
    My younger brother used to sea fishing in Ujung Kulon, West Java tip near Krakatau.
    Whenever he returned, there were so much fish meat that he shared with neighbors and still had left for weeks.

    I've shared some tuna with family & friends. White meat fish freezes very well if you encase it in distilled water. Drop the filets into a zip lock bag filled 3/4 with water, squeeze it til all the air is out and zip it closed. Put the bag in the freezer on it's side so the filets suspend in the middle of the ice. No way they can get freezer burn this way. You can store fish like snapper, flounder, striped bass, sea bass, and any other white meat fish for over a year and it will still be great.

    Two on the boat, Five snapper and a jewfish each and a few other reef fish
    Fillet and freeze a few for during the week, one fresh for dinner that night, one for beer battered and deep fried on the weekend with friends over for a few beers and a few rums (who happened to bring fresh Mudcrabs)

    Gave the family that rents downstairs ,3 Red Throat Emperor ( too lazy to fillet)

    Well I guess after a season of fishing you never have to go to Fish section in Supermarket for the whole year :D. You do need big fridge, though.

    Correct! Besides, fish at the grocery store is never more fresh than 3 or 4 days old. If frozen using my method the day their caught & filleted, you can keep them 'fresher' than any store.

    Got a chest freezer in the basement. ;) I keep a shelf open for just this purpose.

    Crab is one bait I have a hard time using to catch fish with. It makes a better dinner than some of the fish you hook with it.

    Excellent dinner ingredients. Cooked ala Singaporean Chilli crab is the best.

    ..and so in fact it was prepared. Didn't realize it was the gourmet way to go - chef just said to leave it to him

    Looks like a crab tried to hide in a salad and got cooked.
