I don't know about y'all, but I barely got to enjoy my time as a fingerling before automatically being promoted to lunker status after a mere 10 posts.

I'm not worthy!!!

In order for me to show a little respect for the more established members of this fine community, I'd like to propose the following changes:

1-9 posts = Fry
10-49 posts = Fingerling
50-199 posts = Dink
200-499 posts = Chunk
500-999 posts = Lunker
1000+ posts = Hawg

Thanks for listening!

As a young working the oil field, I was designated a permanent worm. Probably people like me should start out as a worm, then go to fry.

When I first signed up on the forum I spent days looking over old posts to sort of "get up to speed", and my wife would look over my shoulder and ask why I was a fingerling instead of a lunker. Generally speaking, you don't want your wife to look at you as a fingerling.

It's much better if she thinks of you as a Hawg. ;\)

Actually, the stage between bait and fry is generally accepted to be the "yolk sac", as I have reason to know.

Howdy, Sunil-

Workin' and lurkin', man, workin' and lurkin'.

Here's a sample of what's been going on in Tennessee:

UMMMMMMMMM.............

I swear it followed me 3' backwards into deeper water and then jumped 4"'s out of the water to to get at it and keep trying to pull it off. Cross my heart and swear to God. \:o

It got inflamed and I had to omintment on it.

I guess I'm just sweet to GSF.

What is that????!!!!!! I'd wear that coat of armor that Theo recommended and drown before I'd get in the water with that thing. I bet he really looks mean when he grows up.

I'm not sure what it is-the fish guy said it was a specialized regional subspecies of salmonid, and told me it was a "Tennessee Toothed Trout". I wasn't able to google such a beast, however.

Thoughts, anyone?

Yolk Sac, maybe you were right the first time, the TVA is leaking stuff. Or someones still sprang a leak.

How far up in the mountains is this place? ;\)

Yup.

I'm working on a home for him and a few buddies. In the meantime, they're being loaned to my neighbor to clean out all the stunted GSF in his 1/2 acre pond.

The fish guy had to get the fish this fall before they all sell out, so we settled on this as a temporizing measure. He says they'll feed most of the winter in Tennessee, and should grow a good bit.

Bruce, that's a great idea.

It seems like every couple weeks someone has questions about rotenone or lime for fish elimination....here's a completely chemical-free solution....And even better, it'll result in a net negative carbon balance.

Hmmm.....I drive past Al Gore's new house every day on the way to work....should I stop and run it by Al?

I'm sure Al would agree...

Stocking one muskie equals ten carbon offsets.

We in the south are suppose to have this great growing season. But what do we have? LMB which may grow smaller in the north but are still there, various other sunfishes, and different kinds of catfish.
But in the north you guys have various trout, muskies, walleye, SMB, pike, yellow perch, and most of the sunfish we have.

No fair!! I want muskies, pike, and yellow perch.

Will pike grow in ponds way up there?

My fish guy says Muskies will do fairly well, and there are naturally occuring muskies even a little south of Nashville in the Duck River. I don't know about Northerns-he says they'll also do well, and brought down 7 for me, which are [hopefully] feasting on greenies as I write.

Neither will reproduce, and he says they get pretty lethargic in the summertime heat.

It has come to the GSA's attention that this thread went from an innocent inquiry as to the "status" classifications under a members name to the slander and yes even a murder plot against the glorious Green Sunfish. Although we are still working on launching our death ray satellite (we didn't realize that it would take over two tons of Mentos and approximately 578,000 cans of Diet Coke in order to achieve the appropriate altitude) we are actively recording names and GPS locations of offenders. We would greatly appreciate it if both Yolk Sac and Bill Webb would post their GPS coordinates for our hit list information data base (currently on 3x5 cards).

Remember everyone, we are watching, we are always watching....
