Some one mentioned that if you are new to the board you might not know what all our abbreviation or terms truly mean. So here is the FTFF Dictionary (disclaimer: this is not exclusive to just our board).

If you have so terms or abbreviations to add please do so just make sure you watch what you post up. Please lets keep it clean as we can. I will start it out.

LMB = Large Mouth Bass
FTFF Crew = Float Tube Fishing Forum Group
Butt = Halibut or Flounder
Skunked = Went fishing and only caught a sunburn (no fish)

Wiper (not for cars..or wet t-shirt contest) = hybrid freshwater white striped bass
FNN = FishingNetwork.Net (reports for local California waters)
BBG = BigBluegill.com (those who tube/yak/toon for panfishes in local freshwaters)
Toon = pontoon

Better change that to DFW, Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Green eating machine = LMB
Googans = those who act as if they're above the laws nears, on, in, and around the waters. Also, those who think they're supreme being, but end up showing their complete idiocy. Sorry for the long definition, but got to cover a heck of a spectrum.

Very nice stuff
Thanks

"Leech: Somebody constantly asking where the "best spot" is on fishing forums."

Met one of these guys today. He wasn't happy with just any spot, he only wanted to know where to catch "big ones."

I suggested the pond in the city's garden park.
I failed to mention the cops that would appear as soon as he wet his line.
