Default Fishing Slang

Random question, but wanted to cast it out there and see what kind of responses:

What is your favorite fishing slang term, word, or phrase?

When it comes to fishing there are numerous nicknames and colloquial terms for baits, tackle, equipment, techniques, species, conditions, etc. You name it, there's probably a slang term for it.

What would be your top 5 favorite fishing slang terms?

Ed Sullivan - a really big show on the bottom machine
Barack - seasick
Working - either birds or fish eating bait on the surface
Greenies - usually scaled sardines but could be any number of small baitfish
Meat pole - favorite beefy bottom rod that puts 'em in the boat

Fish on!
Fish in the boat!
Hand me a cold snack!
That wave had to have been 8 feet.
And one of my favorites that was said on my boat, "Would you look at that, Dan's boat isn't being towed"

A few more;
Rocked up - fish hung up on the bottom. If your line breaks, he was a GIANT!
Moron Patrol - FWC
Door Mat - big flounder
Big Ugly - black drum over ten pounds
Big Wormy - large AJ
Gator - big speckled trout. If he gets off, gator could mean any trout over twelve inches
Yahoo - any fisherman that's not on my boat
Tax Man, Tax Collector, Dead If I Get Him Up - take a guess
