What to do with all these purdy catfish?

Hey Fellas, I wanted to find out what yall would do with this fine catch of blue and channel catfish I caught nightfishing @ the Santee Cooper lakes a few nights ago.  Normally I would cut them into nuggets and whip up some hushpuppies. Then batter and deepfry them, but since I have the egg and unlimited tips and knowledge thanks to you guys I would like to try something different.  So far, the only fish I've cooked was a large slab of salmon on an extra thick cedar plank with some Old Bay blackened seasoning.  With this catfish I would prefer something with more of a cajun flavor, and on the spicy side.  This pic was only half the fish I caught that night, the other half went with my buddy.  The biggest of the night was 27 lbs. with an average of around 8 lbs. 

My dream is to have enough meat saved up so I can cook at the next eggfest and have enough catfish for everyone to enjoy!  Hopefully by next year I will be comfortable enough with my cooks to attempt to cook at eggfest! Thanks Guys for all your help!
