I've only been doing cp for about a year and though I've had minor ricing issues in the past, I was always able to smooth it out. Yesterday, I couldn't. The batter was getting so thick, I just plopped it into the mold. So this morning when I cut it I had this bumpy soap and oil pockets. Can I still use it or do I need to rebatch it? Sorry pic wouldn't attach.

You should probably rebatch it. The next time that happens, let it gel in the pot and then stick blend it together and pour it into your mold.

I know the voices in my head aren't real, but they sure have some great ideas!

Next time your soap rices or seizes, let it! Then let it go to a full gel right in the soap pot. It will soften so you can stir.
Adding a siezed soap directly into the mold invites lye pockets or fragrance pockets.
It's best to put it all into a crockpot and hot process it.
