We have people that snag fish on the Manistique (which is my biggest pet peeve of fishing) but when we see someone doing this we say they are using a "silver octopus pattern"

Hooked a Tire - big fish you could not get off the bottom "sometimes" it is actually the bottom if my fishing buddy is telling me he hooked a tire (never is it the bottom if I am telling the story), sometimes the tire comes to the surface just long enough to "reel" you

getting "reeled" or the fish "reeled" me - big fish takes the fly and goes until your out of backing, then keeps going usually taking at least your fly with him..

had some hits but didn't land any - got skunked

hitless - skunked

Oh fer (baseball term as in 0 for 2) - got skunked

Not a (as in nada or not a doggone thing) - got skunked

All LDRs - got skunked

Don't ask me how I know so many words that mean 'got skunked', I think I learned em all from my two fishing buddies

stick fish - a stick that you have reel all the way in to get off the hook.

skunk buster - the fish you catch just before leaving that kept you from getting skunked (sometimes a very small fish, like guppy size that your buddy coaxed into taking a size 24 midge, just under the tree, near the shore, so he wouldnt have to tell you he got skunked again. You can usually tell this is what happened when your buddy says he landed a little skunkbuster, but wont tell or show you how little the "little guy" was)

The last time I got a skunk buster it was...
A wee Jack fish - because when I felt the bump on the fly and set the hook it landed the fish all 41/2" of him

Here's a terminology question. With all species of fish, you "hook", "land", or "catch" them, but you "jump" a tarpon, how is that? milt.
