Overheard at the pond ...

Damnit sturgeon!  The fair is always so crowded!  Why do I keep agreeing to go?  You and flathead are paying for parking!  And to top it off?  One of those damn walleyes tipped over my beer!

Fish Pond Game

My favorite part of the state fair is playing a game I call: That Is Not A Carp!

Contestants nominate themselves by saying, "Look at the size of that carp."

Then in a friendly tone a roughfisher says, "Actually that is a (insert almost any native fish). It is one of the 150 species of native fish found in Minnesota."

If you get the right contestant you can actually go several rounds.

"Oh. That one is a carp."

"....Actually, that is a greater redhorse."

"Oh. That one is a carp."

".... Actually that is a quillback."

"What is the one with the funny scales?"

"A mirror carp.... which is actually a carp."

 

I think it could be scaled up to a day time game show, we need a good host and an anouncer who can say, "Bob the Bassfisherman, come on down! You are the next contestant on That is Not A Carp!"

 

We could use stocker rainbows for prizes....

And the look on their face is precious when they realize that they are wrong and all those years fishing they never really caught more than a few species of gamefish. That game really is funny especially when it is people who truely think they know what they are looking at.

It is all perspective!
