    Bowl.--- a cupped section of beach

    Wash.-- Section of the shoreline where wave action occurs

    Trough. -- Channel in the sand along the shoreline that the wash spills into

    White Water.-- Waves breaking as they pass over a sand bar

    Finger Bar.-- A sand bar that sticks out like a 'point' from the beach

    Ocean Hole -- Deep water drop off at the edge of a sand bar, usually a finger bar

    Bowling. --- Sport you think you should have taken up after a less than stellar day of fishing

    Ultimately, it's not catching fish that satisfies, but knowing how.

    Rip, wow, that about covers it.
    Hit this thread before I had morning coffee, lost it somewhere around "Reel seat".
    Noticed none of my terms were in the glossary.
    Hope I do OK on the test.

    My vote is to add the terms from all of the posters to Rip Tide's post, and make it a sticky. This is neat. Good call MP.

    It's not what I catch when I'm fishing, it's what I lose that matters to me...
