How long can you keep fillets on ice while camping ?
I bought a 12 volt freezer I’ll run with my generator.3 days is pretty solid,, IMHO, the key is lots of ice and make sure fillet bags are touching the ice not just stacked on top of each other. We will sometimes push it to 4 Days and always keeping them in contact with ice and rotating the bags to keep them as cold as possible.
ThanksGarry, I forgot to mention what I think is very important. We are usually up in the San Juan for eight days, we don't tent camp, I have a 26' Wooldridge super sport pilothouse that is very self contained for long trips, we anchor only never go to shore except for ice cream at DR. My point is we eat fish every night (tacos, fried with panko or BBQ) I always leave the skin on the fillet of all fish until I am ready to cook it, I will freeze it that way also.
It seems to keep the juices intack and the fish fresher. Never let the fillets touch water only salt and pepper and a hot grill.
