    P.S. Never fished even one of them.

    I've always heard Lunker as a term for large bass, does this apply to other fish as well? I didn't see it elsewhere on the list.
    Wiper - another name for a striped bass hybrid

    From the saltwater side:
    Specks are another name for sea-trout, at least in my area.
    Silver King is a tarpon
    Jumping a tarpon, to answer Milt's question from a few months back, is somewhere between a hook and a landing, and a bonus if you also land the fish. Some tarpon will jump the instant they are hooked, while others run deep.
    Bowing to the King is what you do when a tarpon jumps; this is the action you see where an angler pushes his rod toward the fish so as to not have a perfect aerial venue for watching your lure come flying out of the tarpon's mouth because of the tension.
    Baitstealers - encountered when fishing with bait and pretty self-explanatory, though not always; these can be fish or weeds, anything that manages to extricate your bait from your hook without replacing said bait with its jaws

    I saw it mentioned earlier, but is this list still being compiled into a more digestible format? I have a lot of free internet time on my hands in the evenings while still in Sweden until mid-August... that's what happens when you don't have any fishing gear on hand...
