Cermele: Bet You Can't Name These Ten Fish

I'll be away next week playing catch-up on the killer bluefin bite happening in my home waters, so I may or may not post...we'll see how tired I am from reeling. So in the meantime, here's a challenge for you:

Identify all 10 species of fish shown in the photos below. The only things I'll tell you is that they are all gamefish and there are both salt- and freshwater denizens in the mix. But that's not to say a few of these weren't strategically cropped to make things a little more tricky.

If I were a bettin' man, which I am on the occasion, I say three people max get the list 100% correct on their first post...if that many. Let's see what you got.

I'll announce a winner of this and the Stench Contest on Tuesday, September 9th. Here's to hoping you're all fishing over the long weekend.

Wow only two guesses in 5 hours since this has been up? With a day left before a long weekend, almost everyone reading blogs today should be looking for those special things to do that make a work day go faster without actually working...I thought this was it.

Either it's stumping a lot of people or everyone is thinking really really hard before posting.

Both of these responses have rights and wrongs in them.

Stumped

It is weird how there are only two guesses but I think its because this is really really hard I've figured out about half of them but I can't figure out the other half good luck to everyone else.

PS - You said your trying to throw a curve ball. So I'm saying boston mackerel because even tho most people think of it as bait, it is technically a gamefish. There are charter boats in my area for them

JC

Ned, not saying your right or wrong on the mack, but you're thinking outside the box. I dig it. There are two pics that I guess seem obvious that no one has gotten correct yet. One I'm not surprised at, but the other I am. Where are my Northeast brothers?

Well I see a lot of bass and panfish around here but this test is obviously for the angling connoisseur... a category in which I have yet to find myself included. I'll go ahead and guess just for the much needed thrashing of my bloated self esteem. Well then again my wife's grandmother died this week and the in-laws who all camped out at my house since it was the biggest have pretty much taken care of that self esteem bloat so you guys have at it. On a brighter note a couple of my friends and I caught about a hundred skipjack and put out two hundred jugs on the Cumberland River and brought home exactly seventy-two catfish. Biggest was only twelve pounds so we weren't happy. Looking for 25-30 pound range, even though the smaller ones taste better, those refrigerator pictures holding a cat that weighs in at 30+ look really good.

P.S. This contest would be hard for me even if the picture included the entire fish.

just guessing

1. cutthroat
2. red drum
3. dorado
4. brown trout
5. brook trout
6. king salmon
7. mangrove snapper
8. bluefish
9. chum
10. bonefish
