    LOL! I never liked the term, "dink". That just sounds too nerdy. Lifters fits the bill for smaller fish in a more dignified manner. :wink:

    That is a good term,It has been around awhile,I think it originally was used the most by Crappie Fishermen,thats where I have heard it the most anyways.They use those telescopic nets to reach way out to net em when they are using those 12'-16' rods,if they cauht a small one they would not use the net,they would just lift the rod up and swing the fish to em,hence the term Lifter.I love doing that style crappie fishing,just dont have time for it much anymore chasing ole whiskers.:wink:

    I've been using that term too bill.....actually i think i heard it over in SC. Anyone use the term TittyBream?

    TittyBream: A member of the sunfish family of large stature. The origin of the term comes from the technique an angler uses to unhook a large bluegill by holding him againts his chest, due to the fact that the speciman is too big to get your hand around him.

    " I filled my bait bucket with a dozen tittybream before setting out for the night."
