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.
