I think that's because fish are "soft" compared to broncos, bears, and bulldogs. Bluefish are mean, but you kind of need to have some angling knowledge to get that. So I wonder how many Bridgeport, Connecticut, baseball fans really understand why their team shares a name with this line-cutting bait-ruiner. Walleyes? Well, sure they're predators, but I've caught many that hit with the daintiest tap and fought like a dish rag. Marlin are stellar gamefish, but they just as easily break your heart as make your day. If you're wondering why I'm not including the Tampa Bay Devil Rays here it's because nobody fishes for rays. They don't count.
