The gog bite has been good.... Do not let them sit on ice water. You want to have some sort of crate to keep them above water and put them in a zip lock bag. Pack the ice well at the bottom of the cooler, then add a few bags of gog, ice....gog ice..and so on. You can put a few in the freezer and try as well. Put them in the glad or reynolds plastic( the thin one- press and seal type) so they dont get freezer burn since you wont be vacuuming them. Try both method and see which hold best for you.
