[edit] Animal Crossing: Wild World

"<Player>, the very fact that you caught this tells me you are quite a fisher! Oh, a recipe for the barred knifejaw? I'd recommend putting it in a broth. Grilling makes the flesh rather tough, eh wot?"

[edit] Animal Crossing: City Folk

"Hootie hoo, look at you! You've hauled in a star catch this time! Indeed, simply marvelous work!' The Barred Knifejaw is a clever fish that, it's said, requires some rather fancy fishing to catch. Their monotone color scheme certainly paints them as smart, sensible fish in my eyes, eh wot?"
