When freezing fresh fish, freeze cleaned fish in water and they are like fresh when thawed and will not become freezer burned since they can't get dried out.
When fish are caught in warm weather, they sometimes have a strong flavor. To firm the fillets and draw out some of the strong flavor, soak them in salt water. Be generous with the salt. They will not taste salty when served, but it will draw out distasteful flavors, especially in bass in warm weather. Soaking in milk will also draw out some of the muddy flavor found in fish in the warm weather.
