I vacuum sealed all my mackerel last year. Also made a mess of my own mackerel chum. It worked well.

BTW... Welcome

good to supply yourself with fresh frozen bait that way. word to the wize, catch or snag them fresh cause store bought bunker are already contaminated and usually not all that good frozen as it is on ice and in brine already. and don;t put em in ice or water after you get them. put em in ziplock bag and then on the ice /keep the slime on them and try and get them sealed and in the freezer as fast as you can. another thing, watch you don;t pull the juice out of the sealer bag when you suck the air out, not a good thing for sure.

Welcome to the board. Jonesy

Bunker has a little too much water in them. You need to salt them first to drain them of the water otherwise your vacuum sealer will be a mess.
Heres a thread on storing and salting bait.
