Good Day when you return from a long range 36 hour trip what do you do with your catch. I would be traveling from AZ to FLA. Is there local fish processing like we have in San Diego. They would clean and filet the fish, place the filets in vacuum seal bags and flash freeze so we can take on the plane or ship home. Thank you

Good luck. They'll clean your fish but that is it. No freezers or processors. I have check into this myself because I'm going in April. Help from your hotel? Good luck. If you find something please post.

I have and thats why I said what I did. I just plan on icing down my fish and flying home on the same day. Just dump out all of the ice at the airport and pack it in-between layers of clothes. It's still cold when you get home.

You don't have to dump the ice. Just make sure there is no water/melted ice when going thru security check. I carry on ice/fish all the time. That would be a long ass time with no ice for fish that isn't frozen solid. I wouldn't trust that.

You can bring a soft sided cooler,
And put your ice in a zip lock bag,
And are aloud 50 check in.

I am very familiar with boat and how it’s goes. Once you get off the boat, get in line at the fish cutting table. They charge $5.00 per fish no matter the size. Once that is done put fish in zip-lock bag. They sell ice boat side. $5.00 for a big bucket. They sell soft side coolers at Costco for $9.00. Bring those with you and leave them in your car. Once you get you fish cut, go to Publix. They sell dry ice. I wrap my fish in newspaper then dry ice. Don’t mix dry ice and H2O ice. The dry ice will freeze it solid. Then you are good to go!

Im not positive, but I believe you can't bring dry ice on an airplane........

It is allowed but in limited quantities and must be approved by the airline. From the FAA website.

Good advice. Buy dry ice at Publix and freeze fish. But you got to get rid of dry ice before checking in. Legally you can bing 4.4 oz dry ice in a cooler, but they will dump out dry ice in a cooler when security checking.
Don't put ice in your cooler. If you do, they will dump out ice at airport. If you want to bring ice in a cooler, put ice in plastic water bottles.

Go buy some boxes of heavy duty freezer bags, A cheap throw away plastic storage bin or your ice chest, 10-15 lbs of coarse rock salt (Ice cream salt), Once your fish are fileted put what ever you want in each bag (double bag them) suck the air out by submersing your filets about an inch above the water and zip shut (go on you tube for examples) Then fill your bin with lots of ice, water then add dry ice (again go on you tube for ratios of water salt and ice) stir around for 5 minutes, drop bags in slush and in 15 minutes and they will be frozen solid. Pack the bags of frozen fish in soft cooler and off to the airport. It may take 1-3 hrs depending on how many bags you have. Try at home with smaller amounts and see how quick things can freeze. That's an option if you can't get them packed and frozen. Good Luck
