Kool Aid Shad - Frozen Shad - Freezing Shad

 

The formula Rick posted on this board about a year ago was one package of Kool-Aide (cherry flavored), no sugar, half strength on water.

The formula I used and mine stored very well, thawed tough as fresh shad, if not a bit tougher was, one package Kool-Aide (cherry), no sugar, one quarter strength on water.

Placed my shad in a vacuum pack, poured in a very small amount of this kool-aid concentrate (because I knew the vacuum pump would try to suck it in if I put too much), then stuffed a pretty thick rolled up paper towel in the end of the vacuum bag to contain as much of the kool-aid as possible, then set the vacuum sealer as close to the counter edge as possible and let the bag of shad hang over and down (again to contain as much of the liquid as possible. The vacuum sealed and froze.

Unlike MikeD's, I did not contain mine in enough liqid to make an ice cube. And, next time I will likely put my shad in a bucket, pour solution over them. Then pour solution off and bag the contents of the bucket. If you mix that Kool-aide as thick as I suggest, just dipping your shad in it is going to leave a coating on the bait, making it ready to freeze.

Hope this is clear enough....Koz I'm never typing this again.
