I have found the best way of preserving them is by dumping them straight into a course salt and ice slush in a 48 liter or bigger colman.
Making sure you get them in there as soon as possible and don’t over fill the cooler no more than half to three quarters.
I normally take two coolers and about 8kg of course salt my cast net and buy about three 5kg bags of ice per cooler on the way if we know we going to get. Oh and R50 – R100 incase they out of casting range.
In the coolers I place a bag of ice and a bag of salt, then a layer of sards, about 3-4 fish deep, then another layer of salt, then ice, then salt, then another layer of sards, then salt and ice.
By the time you get home your sards will be chilled and ready to pack and freeze.
