Fishy Nicknames

3 posts in this topic

I'm curious to hear some of the nicknames given to fish we find here in the Upper Midwest.

For example, Floridians call Crappies "Specks" and Canucks call northern pike "Jacks".

Here are a few others:

Bronzebacks (Smallmouth Bass)

Southern Carp & Bucket Mouths(Largemouth Bass)

Mud Rockets (Sauger)

Minnesota Bonefish (Mooneye)

Hammer Handles (Small Northern Pike)

Cigars (Small Walleyes)

Surf Boards (Giant Muskies)

Let's see some others...

      I am looking at a new portable shelter this year. It would be ideal to get one that fits 3-4 people so I can take my whole family out. I am looking at the clam x400. My concern is the weight. Does anybody have experience lifting this unit up in the back of a truck or dragging it around or to move from spot to spot?  Any suggestions of other shelters to look at would be great. Thanks!

      Just wondering what you guys prefer for fishing fall walleyes down here in southern mn. I know the creek and redtail chubs work great on the northern mn lakes during the fall months but wasnt quite sure if our lakes responded the same down here or if a smaller profile would be the way to go.
