potpourri fishing
 n.— «At Fort Bragg, Martin Scribner at the North Coast Angler says marlin have been hooked and lost. Bottom fishing is great on non-windy days. The albacore bite is picking up again after three windy days. And a commercial boat took 45 salmon Tuesday trolling deep. Is this potpourri fishing or what?» —“Cruising Exotic Species Caught Off Pacific Waters” by John Adams Press Democrat (Santa Rosa, California) Sept. 11, 1997. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
