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 book one of our most popular fishing packages, Big Sky Combo, Big Sky Deluxe, or Big Sky Elite, the first 50 pounds of fish processing, vacuum packaging and frozen storage for the "group" is included. (Please note this service is per group, not per individual.)
Additional fish processing, vacuum packaging, and frozen storage is available for $1.65 per/pound finished frozen weight. This service is offered to guests that are lodging with us at Big Sky or booking one of our guided day trips.
For anglers that are NOT staying at Big Sky, we offer fish processing, vacuum packaging, and frozen storage services for $2.25 per/pound finished frozen weight.
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 are not able to ship fish via private carriers such as FedEx or UPS. These services are available nearby in the town of Soldotna and other convenient locations. Please contact us for further information or questions.
