    Are you serious? Any lamebrain can contribute? What if some poor kid used that garbage in his school report? I'm new to all of this, just got a computer last year...I still have 8-track tapes. They need to take that crap off the internet, when I was a kid my parents encyclopedia set was a treasure trove of information. Whatever it said, you could take it to the bank!

    LOL..yes Mo...any old lamebrain can contribute to wikipedia...there was something in the works, where if you were to submit something to wiki, it was or is supposed to be verified, but I'm uncertain if that is in effect. For the most part, MOST of the information is reliable.

    Unbelievable! Even Mr. Magoo could see those three fish are entirely different. Thanks Vito!

    Yup--- What wifey and I were catching on our honeymoon were the ones in the middle- Sea Bass! We also fished off a jetty and were catching Porgie. Sort of like the BlueGills of SW? Didn't like those giant bloodworms (?) the guy sold us for bait--- especially the part about cutting them into pieces! Thanks for straightening everything out here! Wish someone would straighten out ALL the confusion with fish common names! Best----- JoeW

    Ya know-- my Biology teacher instincts just kicked in! Biologists HAVE straightened all the confusion by giving things different genus/species! And all three of those above fish do have different ones! Means they ARE different fish no matter what they're common names are! BUT--- if fishermen started using the scientific names, who would understand you if you said "Yep- I got a bunch of Micropterus dolemieu and a couple Esox lucius today? What?

    Porgies are fun to fish for...When your right over them...it's non stop action..It's great fishing for children as well...The best bait to use for Porgies is clams. Cut the clams in strips and your good to go!. Same applies for Sea bass, only use bigger strips of clam. As for Black fish, Green crabs are the way to go...You can also use Fiddler crabs and Asian crabs, but they are hard to come by in the bait shops.

    Maybe you know, baressi, or someone else! there's a famous broadway musical or show called "Porgy and Bess" about two people in love or something. Ever hear of it? Is that a take off on "Porgies and Bass"? That's always made me wonder. Best---- JhoeW

    There is a reason it's called fishing and not catching.
    I have to admit that I am a FISHAHOLIC.
    I,m a man and I can do anything I want, I want to go fishing!! (is that ok with you dear?)
