What Do You Call Big Fish ????

Written by Dave Mercer on March 24, 2011

Toad-zilla, Franken-fish, Finned Freak of Nature, Shaq-Daddy-Super-Bass, Bass-Squatch, Geepers Creepers look at the Peepers on that Swamp Donkey, Boom-Shakakalaka G-G-G-G-G-G-Giant Bass. These are just a few of the things I have said in the last month or so on stage.

Ok so for the long time viewers of Facts of Fishing THE SHOW some of the names that I use for big fish or even some of  the names I use for small fish come as no shock.  You guys have heard me call fish all kinds of names and even heard me sing to fish or to anyone that would listen. Fishing is all about fun and when I catch of even just see a Giant Fish it just seems fitting to say something fun. That is how I have always been & lets be honest hawg or big fish just does not cut it for some fish. Well it seems that some of the names I have been using on the Bassmaster Elite Series have taken some of the people that are not long time viewers by shock lol!

I even did a radio interview yesterday with Kent Brown (a great guy) from Ultimate Bass Radio out in California to explain what some of these names or saying I have used on the stage mean or where or who they came from. I don’t think they are really that crazy I mean everyone has pet names for there giant fish RIGHT ? Hey some of the ones I use I got from friends, Pro Anglers or even from my facebook followers. So I thought here is a perfect time to ask you guys what do you call your big fish? Share with me your big fish names and who know I may use it on the Bassmaster stage. You will not get paid for it but hey it’s still kind of cool.

    Big poopers. As weird as it sounds, I love giving big fish a nice big hug. When I do that, they, um, do their business. On my pants. You have to see the look on my mom’s face when I come back from ice fishing with black snow pants that are not so black.

    Hi Mel,
    Dukers is a good one but not off the wall enough for me to use on stage
