    Where should I put it if I don't have freezer room?

    once I catch a trophy fish do I immediately put it on ice? and how long should I keep it on ice before I put it in the freezer? and how long is too long keeping it on ice like if I wasn't able to get it to a freezer? I'm gonna start saving up so I can get a fish mounted I have no idea at all how this works or who to go to. But the last few years I've been planning on saving up, up to 500 bucks keeping it on the side for the day I finally catch that trophy fish bur I have no idea what to do with it.
