Default names, aargh!!!!!

I happen to know alot of terminology for lots of fish. I however have lived in places where fishermen are woefully ignorant... Down in south texas where I have a house I almost came to blows with a guy who insisted that the speckled trout was in fact a trout. On the east coast there is a really fine fish they call the rockfish, really a striped bass. The rockfish I know about are west coast fish, good fish but not related to the striper and up in the north some of the the northern states the pike is called a jack, can you imagine that. The problem is you donot cook them the same way. Some of you may say that does not matter and I say it certainly does.

It was William Shakespeare was it not that wrote :- "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" & perhaps the same applies to fish.

It's all a play on words. In other regions they have been known as different names like yellowpike, walleyepike and other names and it just stuck as the fish moved south into our regions. Here is a better explanation!

It's good that you've only made 6 posts in almost 3 years if this is an example.
