Storing Whole Cooked Crabs

Was at a cookout today and we bought a bushel of live crabs which turned out to be WAYYY too many crabs. We boiled all of them but with so many left over I was hoping to keep some for later use. I put a half dozen in a Ziploc bag and put them in my freezer.

I figure to reheat them, I can just steam them right out of the freezer. I know that when crab goes bad it gives off an ammonia smell, so I will be on the lookout for that.

How long can they stay frozen in my regular freezer?

My sister-in-law has a deep freeze and we were wondering if they could stay longer in that.
