Why not just take a big cooler and keep them on ice the whole time? Just drain the water daily and add new ice, and be sure to keep the fish on top of the ice....Just My thoughts Dee

need a cooler; cause you wont be catching much at all...its dead summer.... you will get some small frying stuff.. and i guess if you want to keep a shark ......................

When Bob & Nancy owned Tradewinds, they would freeze people's catch for them. They recently sold the shop, so I'm not sure if the new owners are still doing that or not... You could ask on the Tradewinds board...

probably a stupid question....

..the only stupid question is the one that never gets asked. I hope the tuna comes in shallow and ya have ta beat 'em off with a stick.

Have a great time fishing while I'm working :D

I remeber a post with a guy that had the same can do a search on the site...but it involved layering the fish in a cooler and using salt to keep the ice colder?.......sorry I can't be of any more help.

Allen the new owner of tradewinds did offer to keep our fish frozen for us while we where there.

It was sold in early spring, Bob and Nancy spent time after the shop was sold getting the new owners up to speed. Bob also did the paperwork on my drum as well, even though the shop had been sold already.

When was Tradwwinds sold? :eek:

It was in April or May. I was down w/ a bud the weekend that it went down. Bob & Nancy stayed on for a while to "help w/ the transition" & I think they still help out from time to time. I've met the new owners once & they seemed like fine folks.
