Default Re: Fishing Terminology

Here's a few from salt water:

Fat Albert = False Albacore

Bonehead = male mahi mahi, (also called dorado and dolphin fish). The males have a blunt, bony forehead

BFT, YFT = Blue Fin Tuna, Yellow Fin Tuna

Push = Something to look for on the flats, it's the compression wave ahead of a fish or a school of fish as it swims through shallow water

Blitz = baitfish trapped against the surface by bigger fish, the water looks like it's boiling

Huffnagle, Bimini Twist, Haywire Twist, Slim Beauty = names of knots
