What should I do with this whole frozen fish?

LOL dbcurrie!! I thought the same thing. I liked the idea of wacking it up into managable peices. Either way I look at it, I think I'm going to have a bunch of friends over for a feast! How long do you think it would take to thaw this beast in the frige?

What should I do with this whole frozen fish?

I recently caught my first Steelhead (large rainbow trout) and I'm not sure I was ready for such a large fish. It's 32" long and has a 15" girth. I'm assuming it's close to 12 pounds. I immediately put it on ice and gutted it when I got home. I wasn't sure what to do from there so I wraped it up and put it in my freezer. If I could do it all over again, I would have cleaned and fileted the fish, then freeze it. What should I do now? Can I thaw it then filet it? If I do that I can't freeze them again. Should I just invite 10 of my friends over and cook it all at once? What do you think?
