I am jealous! I have been wanting one of those for a long time. I never thought about using it to catch my own bait. Thanks for the good idea!

This one was apparently inexpensive, but MAN does it do a good job!!!! No ice crystals on any of this meat... Prolly not as wicked as redleader's commercial vacpac, but it does a pretty darn good job for being a small unit.

I cannot take credit for the idea of catching bait and vacpacking it... But I'll certainly do it!!!

I love it already!!! I can't wait to catch some fish, filet em up, and vacpack em! :)

I have some gills, trout, and char in my freezer in Ziploc bags... Sure wish I'd have had this thing a few months ago!!! I'm gonna cook all the fish up this week to make room in my possession limit. :)

Time to selectively harvest the sh** out of some brooks and Lakers!!!

The greatest tool ever! I butcher my own elk, deer, antelope, ect and package every bit of it with my food saver. I've had the same unit for 8 years and have packaged litteraly thousands of pounds of meat with it and it still works as good as it did when I first got it!

Tip: Lightly wet the rubber seal on the vacuum every time you use it. It will seal quicker and the seal will last longer.
