Default Re: Fishing Terminology

Some localisms:

"Sail Fish"- a fish so small it takes flight when you set the hook.

"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.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
