"Pickle Trickle"- a small creek full of pickle sized fish
"Grind it out"- "we ain't catchin' sh't, but we're gonna stay at it" most common at the coast, where scraping the boat on oysters is unavoidable.
"Googan"- a blabberhead with a large boat and lots of toys that runs all over the place disturbing the fish for all others.
Slough- a tidal lake off of a bay that usually muddy as all helll
Tooley- a small grass island on a flat
Cabbagehead- a jellyfish about the diameter of a cantaloupe that's ubiquitous and fairly harmless.
Croaker Soaker- coastal anglers who fish with fairly large live baitfish. undeniably effective at catching larger fish, but also basically impossible to combine with catch and release.
