I caught two pompano yesterday. I took them home, wrapped them, and then threw whole into the freezer. I was so dang tired that I didnt want to fillet them. Will it be ok to thaw them out and fillet them later? Or did I make a mistake?

Did you gut them first? If so, I bet they would be fine. If not, I don't think I would eat them. I don't like the idea of all that stuff being in my fish for a day or so after it is dead whether it's frozen or not.

Sorry for the late post. Did you end up giving them a shot? How did it turn out?

You should have just kept them on ice until the next day, then cleaned them.

I'm not sure if they would be OK after freezing, I don't know why not. I think I would eat them that day though, don't re-freeze.

They'll be fine. While in Asia it was normal to throw the whols fish on the grill and eat around the guts. I was once served a plate of fresh fish guts as an appetizer.
