How long are walleyes good for

5 posts in this topic

How long is walleye good for if it is on ice in the fridge? How long can a guy wait to cook it?

I wouldn't let it go for more than 3 days

3 days is a good rule of thumb. Depending on your fridge temp it could be more or less. You said on ice so thats good but they should also be dry.

I cleaned some last night and I wont have time to cook them until Thursday. They taste so much better when they are cooked without ever being in the freezer.

Thanks

I keep mine lightly wrapped in paper towels in ziplocks and change the paper towels every couple days. I've easily gotten 5 or 6 days out of the filets that way and they still are fine. The worst thing is to let water accumulate in the bottom of the bag which will ruin them pretty quick.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
