Fish Processing, Packaging and Storage
We take care of your fish with the same level of expertise as we do our guests. Big Sky Charter offers cleaning, filleting, vacuum sealing and freezing on-site in our processing facility. We use commercial grade vacuum sealers for maximum protection against freezer burn. If fish is kept frozen you can expect about one year of shelf life.
When you stay with Big Sky and book one of our many fishing charters or combo fishing trips, quality fish processing, vacuum packaging and frozen storage of your first 50-pounds of fish per group is included. (Some restrictions apply.)
Additional fish processing, vacuum packaging and frozen storage may be purchased for $1.80 per pound, finished frozen weight. This service is available to anglers that are NOT guests of Big Sky as well.
Frozen storage is available for $20.00 per 50-pound box/per day. Whole, unprocessed or unboxed fish may be stored for $20.00 per 50-pounds/per day.
Big Sky provides airline-approved fish boxes - 50 lbs max. Fish need 12 - 24 hours of freezing time before departure to ensure it will travel in a frozen state. (Please note this is not a guarantee. Big Sky Charter cannot be held responsible for your fish after it leaves our Fishcamp.)
We do not ship fish via private carriers such as FedEx or UPS.
