Wondering if anyone used this and how they used it if it worked. Thanks
Simply soaking a fish in water will bring moisture back into it.I have added stop rot to water a couple times and was able to skin out fish that I didnt think I was going to be able to skin out.Whether it made a difference,I dont know for sure.
Also, what kind of fish matters as well along with how badly burnt it is? Some fish, like Crappies are actually easier to skin out with a little freezer burn. And, I've skinned out Smallies and LM Bass that were badly freezer burned. And after loosening them up a bit in cold water, they were actually easier to skin than w/o the freezer burn. The meat just peeled away easily. On the flipside, I had a pike once that was SO badly freezer burned, it wouldn't come back. It was like a dried up combat boot even after sitting in cold water for many hours. I probably could have tried skinning it. But, I did not want to waste the time IF I was going to lose it. It was also bent like a banana and wouldn't straighten out - so getting a tracing was also difficult. So, I just called my customer and I ended up tossing it....

Just soak it in cold water. I do it to all my fish regardless.
