Default How long do frozen fish stay good?

I have a buddy who still has fish he caught last Saturrday. He said he placed slush from lake on fish in 5 gallon bucket and the whole thing is frozen solid. I told him I thought they would be ok, but Iwould post here as i have never kept fish that long.

that would be your own judgement call.personally i wouldn't be afraid to eat them.being frozen would have retarded any spoilage or bacteria growth.i'm sure lots of commercially caught fish are kept iced that long before cleaning.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside with a smoke in one hand and a beer in the other,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming....WOW -WHAT A RIDE!!!!

Default frozen

They have been frozen. Im pretty sure its been colder outside than the freezer in the house. I dont always cut mine up right away either as long as it stays cold out. although onetime someone gave me some that had been out for a few weeks and when i cut them up some of the meat looked weird so i threw them out. Like they always say "if in doubt throw it out."
