A post for your fishing stories.

Fishing. It's right up there with shooting; only I'm a lot better with the rifle than I am with the rod! So what are your fishing stories? What tips do you have to share with someone cursed with bad "fishing luck". Any words of advice for someone who has to troll the scum ponds of SoKal?

Several years ago I was fishing off of a boat in the Pacific. I caught this big hurking seabass, and was yelling for someone to grab a net or a gaff, but one wasn't available. I finally leaned over the side and tried to grab him with my left hand. In the process my watch slipped off into his mouth, the leader broke, and he got away.

About 2 years later I'm fishing in almost the same area and this time I did catch what was a large sea bass. I took him home and started cleaning him. When I stuck my knife in his belly the knife hit something hard!!

Yes! I had slipped the knife all the way through his belly and the knife hit a bone in my hand!!

Sounds kind of like my story!

I thought you were going to say you found your watch! It wasn't a Rolex was it?

2 old fisherman sitting at the bar telling war stories and bench fishing.

one guy says; he caught a fish on thread and a safety pin that weighed 45 lbs. the other guy says; he caught a lantern he lost three years ago, and the flame was still burning. the first guy says; i will knock 44 lbs off my fish if you will blow out the lantern.

I used to be an avid night catfisherman.
Once a buddy and I were by bridge and we weren't catching anything.Since the fish weren't biting we took the hooks off our line and put a couple weights on so we could have a casting contest. We were pretty close to the bridge and one of us accidentally flung our line over the bridge far enought to let it dangle over the other side. So our casting contest was now to see who could get their line to dangle lower on the other side. The road happened to lead to a Walmart warehouse. One thing led to another and we started trying to latch onto the passing 18 wheelers. My buddy hit the DOT bumper of one of them it pulled out almost all of his line before the line finally broke. HE won!!!


Good times, Always

same two drunks going fishing late one night; as they walked down the road out of town, one says, you know as messed up as we is somthin' bad could happen to us. i was just thinkin', i ain't been bapitized. the other one says hmmm, me needer, what you speck we otta do. first one says, we gonna' pass da preacher's house directly, maybe we could get the reverend to bapitize us real quick like.

they stood outside the preacher's house yelling up at his bedroom window for 5-10 minutes. finally the preacher came to the window and harshly asked what they wanted this late.

the first one says, well preacher, me and zeek was going fishin' and got to thinkin' about what if somthin' happened and we didn't come back. well, we ain't been a bapitized and was wonderin' if you could do us both real quick like.

preacher says, OK, wait a minute. he walks away from the window then comes back with a bowl. as he leans out and empties the bowl on them, he says, i bapitize you in the name of the father, son and holy ghost, amen.

first man says, thank ye preacher, yer a fine man. secound one says, yeah, thanks.

after about a mile of silence, and reflecting on the moment; the first one says, hey!, what religion are we now? the second one says, i ain't rightly shore but according to the way we smell, i think we is pisapailens.
