    Default Keeping Crappie frozen

    Need some advice guys. I知 planning a trip from Louisiana to Denver in July to visit my son (2 days). I壇 like to take him some vacuum sealed, frozen Crappie and trying to figure out the best way to keep it frozen. Right now planning on frozen gallon and half gallon jugs of water. Have any of you used dry ice? I知 open for suggestions.

    Thanks

    We used dry ice to keep caribou frozen on the long trip home (Newfoundland) ,bought it by the number of hours home. if you have access to dry ice it will do the job ,might watch for freezer burn with direct contact to dry ice. When it melts there's no liquid to deal with .

    Dry ice is what they use to pack seafood for those that buy it while on vacation and wish to take it home.

    I'd go the dry ice route, as well. Medications are packaged with dry ice for long trip shipping, so I'd trust it for transporting fish. Just put a layer or two of cardboard between the dry ice and the packaged fish to avoid "contact burns" (as Micmac stated).

    Does the ice chest have to be vented?
