My family has always used the cardboard milk containers. Empty, rinse out and add water, throw in fish fillets, close and freeze. The fish will be just like fresh caught when you thaw them out. Cheap and effective.

So do I Ben. Works great.  Just enough in one small bag for us. 
 And a lot cheaper then vacuum bags..

X2!!!!
I upgraded my vacume sealer this summer for the shop...
This thing is awesome.
I found that buying In bulk for bags(cause I can use any vacume bag) that my bags cost me pennies.....

The other benefit from not freezing fish in water is....
You can thaw out fish alot quicker if it's not in a block of ice

Been starting to get some near by. It’ll be a few more weeks till it gets hot.

Been putting up some good perch. Getting them every day. Actually been using the vacuum sealer more this year. I wrap portions in plastic wrap then freeze 2 or 3 packages in a gallon vac bag.

I can take what I want and re-seal the bag. Works great for just the two of us and maybe a friend for dinner.

Plastic wrap, freezer paper, vacuum seal. Plastic wrap touches fish and prevents oxygen. Freezer paper prevents frost. Vacuum removes air. I take out fish 3 years old, sausage 6 years old and its like fresh.

Or........freeze them in water.
Same results.

However, takes up a little more freezer space.

Getting some out to pickle tomorrow. Got a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio for more flavor.

Love pickled perch.
