Bring Your Own Fish?

My friends and I are going deep sea fishing in Long Beach. Is there a place we can bring our catches to be prepared accompanied of course with things from that restaurant's menu?
Mao's House and Fortune Bistro both used to do it for $5/fish. Don't know if they still do. Mao's House is open later and is BYOB. My main complaint is that most of the dishes are cooked with the same brown sauce and chilies... not much in the way of variety. They do have a few unique dishes... cumin something-or-other comes to mind. Fortune Bistro is more versatile, from what I remember. Might be tough without a Chinese speaker to negotiate the whole thing. If you choose the Hunan path, these two are way better than the one on the second story of the San Gabriel Square (above Sam Woo). They don't know how to do seafood, or at least didn't on my visit. Overcooked and not scaled. Probably other options in the SGV. MIght wanna have a chinese speaker call around. Good luck.
