Question

Augusta

I am in the market for a food sealer. I will be mostly sealing fish and pheasants. Can anyone recommend a good one and what should I be looking for? Thanks

To be honest, I dont know what to look for.. I have a Food Saver and it works great for what I do with it.

I have a Food Saver and use it mostly for game. It works great. Don't buy the cheapest one though. I think I gave about $180 for mine.

Foodsaver for me. I have an older one and it works great. Check Kohls as they always have them 30-50% off.

I've had a food saver for about 6 years. I use it for fish, ducks, steak, chicken, strawberries in one of the cannisters. It works very well. Get one with the built in storage for the bag roll and the cutter.

Thanks for all the replies everyone. I just purchased a FoodSaver Pro III model for $180.00. I can't wait to use it.

You will really like what you can do to preserve your food with the Food sealer. When you want to seal any game or fish that has some liquid with it try to freeze it for a couple of hours so it will make a better air tight seal. I find that I really love the ability to vacuum pack quart jars so see if it is possible with yours. I will make 12 quarts of spaghetti sauce and leave about a inch from the top and freeze and the stuff is as fresh as the day I made it.

Another question, how long does food, let's say, a pheasant last after it's been sealed and put in the freezer? Thanks

It will last a year as a pretty good rule. If you get most of the liquid out and seal it up well I've eaten venison from 2+ years ago and it tasted great. I don't know how I let that one stay hidden, but we found it.

Everything should be fine for a year or more.

I have had pheasants sealed for over a year. Works better then putting them in a freezer bag that's for sure.

Sometimes you have to watch the bags because somehow they like to come unsealed when in the freezer for awhile.

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.
