My buddy Newsome and I were trout fishing at Martin the other day and I said if they were all like this trout should be the one called this.

I couldn't remember which fish I heard called this one time so we checked it on the new snazzy smart phone and came up with muskie.

I kept thinking and finally it hit me, I heard bonefish called that.

So which deserves it more?

Yea, that phrase was intended for muskies (Or "A fish of ten thousand casts). But as striperhunter90 said, in Collins River (with the right guide) it doesn't take that many.

Muskies, but buffalo are pretty indifferent to baits, too.

Going by the old saying, it would be muskie...but many fish could be called that pending on where you live I guess. Like I've only caught 1 mooneye, 1 longnose gar,and 1 muskie in my life....never caught a sturgeon or paddlefish though.
Once I even caught a mudpuppy salamander haha

gar can be tough to hook but I have caught quite a few. I would love to catch a muskie some day. Try catching a buffalo sometime though. 99% of the time they won't bite, I have even bounced a fly off their nose with no response. But sometimes one will just eat it. For all that effort they don't fight too hard either. Just something to catch to say you did... now a muskie I would love to feel the wrath of one of those on the end of my line.
