A potlicker is as you describe it. However, it is also common for folks around here to call bait chunkers potlickers. Mostly, IMHO, because the potlickers are often times chunking bait. I think the term is liberally used for any person who is in need of fishing manners.QBall said:I thought a potlicker was someone that pulls up on top of you when you're catching fish. What makes a bait fisherman a potlicker? Just wondering if someone could clarify this.
