Gone Fishing... - 09/21/13 09:23 AM

To honor generations of Boomers who've fished waters in search of prizes large and small, this puzzle is angling for the names of fish. As simple as shooting fish in a barrel you ask...goodness no, fishing is never easy and you'll find many of these are not common fish for sure. However, given there is wordplay and trickery afoot with many of these fish, you'll catch them eventually once you take their name's sake into account laugh

Each clue strives to help you in your quest so pay attention as the pun will nibble and the play with words will direct your final catch.

Example: This fish has a heavenly body <8> --> starfish

= 1. You'd expect this fish to have horns and a beard
= 2. You'd expect this fish to make his own clothes
= 3. This fish never shaves
= 4. You'd expect to see this at an Auburn football game
= 5. The last thing you'd expect to see is a fish drafting statutes
= 6. This fish is known to hold on tenaciously
= 7. This fish is used to score touchdowns
= 8. This fish was a nightmare from the Cenozoic era
= 9. This fish is found in a 1920s boxing ring
= 10. This fish can be photographers best friend
