    Hi all
    When we refer to multiples of animals, we say "A gaggle of Geese, a murder of Crows, an exaltation of Larks," etc. What is the proper plural for multiple basses? A quiver? A fleet? A Honk? A Groove?(Sorry if this has been thrashed to death before.)

    Judging by the TB classifieds and half the descriptions saying "Well, gotta thin the herd", I'd go with that.

    Lineup, stable, herd, or 'a pile' of really cheap ones.
