We are what we pretend to be, so we must be careful about what we pretend to be.

I want to stay as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center.

People arenít supposed to look back. Iím certainly not going to do it anymore.Ē

or maybe he knows the guy, knows he is reputable and didn't feel like going into great detail looking for an answer.
Don't be too quick to judge.
Ask poignant questions, wait for the answers, then when it's all on the table do what ya want.
Just sayin'.

This is awesome, like a slowmotrainwreck where everyone cringes before the trains go past on separate tracks :)
but really, ID question without a full body pic is kinda rude.
Do it until you scream, then a short pause is acceptable.
Mental?  perhaps

Just to clarify ...
You bought a fish that you don't know what it is .... You take home and butcher it (without knowing what it is) ..... I can only guess it was processes/cooked/eaten? ...... And now you are asking for identification?
Interesting at best .....
You defiantly have our interest,
Please fill in some blanks

Come to think of it, I probably won't report back.  Not that I won't get more info about the fish, but because it's quite pointless to deal with a bunch of juveniles.

This is surprising...  I remember NCKA to be quite a cordial community.

Sorry you didn't get the answer you were looking for.great group of people here, very honest and very straight forward. Im sure you just peaked everyone's interests and curiosity. Kinda like going to a mechanic and saying something is wrong with my car and saying its making a noise and dripping fluid. Just my .01$
My biggest worry is that my wife(when I'm dead)will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it

Sorry you are offended,
This community is made up of fisherman that respect our surroundings. When I see a pick of a fresh fish, still in the water, it is assumed a fresh catch (poss a bad assumption). Than an open question about identification. Than a half explanation about fish .....
Maybe I was a little quick on the draw, but you left a lot open for a very bad interpretation 
As stated earlier,
You definitely have our attention,
Please fill in some necessary details.

come on now Bluestar, seriously?  I saw this pic right after you posted and My first thought was "WTF?  head and collar pic only for an  ID?!!??"  to not post the whole fish was rude on your part.  I was very nice and didnt call you out right away, but others, having seen the lack of identifiable information and even waited a good entire before doing so, and you are bumhurt by this??  WE, as a group are respectful, myself not so much all the time, but as a group we are.  you on the other hand failed to meet the minimum requirements for an identifiable picture and are now calling us childish!?!?!


Childish would be to put up a pic of half a head and 2 fins and expect a bunch of expert fishermen and fisheries biologists to play your game and then be upset we don't play by your rules.


next time you want an ID, lets have the whole fish so we can do things like count dorsal rays, position of anal or caudal fins, or even observe the general (even post-mortem) coloration, scale patterns and lateral line details.  As a guy that ID's fish often, these are this things that matter to me.  Mayes and Coons and Bird and 20 others here would agree that these are the details needed for positive identification.
Do it until you scream, then a short pause is acceptable.

We have all gone for sushi, none of us knew what the hell we were REALLY eating, give the guy a break.
