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.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
