More Hilariously Timed Fishing Pictures

Salutations, fellow fish lovers. We are overjoyed to see you back here. We are assuming that you saw our other article about the best fishing pictures the internet has to offer, and now you’ve returned for more. Well, you won’t be disappointed.

Source: rover.com

We went on another search through the internet to bring you some of the funniest fishing photos we could locate. So, grab your fishing gear, a nice cold beer, and your best friends, and prepare yourselves for some fishing fun!

Big Catch

These fishermen couldn’t look prouder, and for a good reason! They managed to catch three beautiful, massive Opah fish. The pumping adrenaline did not stop them from knowing how to capture a perfect photograph.

Source: top13.net

Though it has to be said, considering how enormous these fish are, we can’t keep our imagination from going wild and think of what would happen if they were still alive and decided to take revenge on these three fishermen. Now that would be a truly epic picture!

Fishing for Vehicles

We are not sure how this happened, but we can make an educated guess that this sweaty man is trying everything in his power to fish his car out of the lake. However, it has to be said that we are not holding out high hopes for him.

Source: Pinterest

But hey, we can understand where he’s coming from. At that point, there’s obviously no way you’re recovering the car from the water, so you might as well embrace the opportunity to snap a hilarious picture.

Versatile Fishing Pole

People say that creativity can come from any influence, and this picture proves it. Fishermen love nothing more than to have a cold beer while he’s waiting to catch a fish, and this guy invented a way to do it stylishly.

Source: 50nerdsofgrey.com

This is an ingenious solution. Leave your fishing rod to catch something nice and utilize it to hold your beer at the same time. Picture it, barely having to move during the entire day; you have everything you could possibly need a hand’s reach away!

Man on a Mission

Nothing is going to get between this kid and catching a fish. He’s a young, hardcore fisherman that will not let a minor inconvenience, like going to the bathroom, affect his daily catch. And we have to say; we are very impressed with his resourcefulness.

Source: postize.com

This is a true fisherman at heart, who came to the lake prepared with all of his essential items: a hat, a fishing rod, and a bucket. Now, if emergency strikes, he is ready for any and all scenarios.

Dogs Don’t Fish

Nice catch, dude, but unfortunately, you’re not the reason this photo made the list. Your funny dog in the back is. While this man is probably excited with his solid catch, his dog seems to be disturbed by the thought of that thing returning back home with them.

Source: pupperish.com

We can’t even imagine the hilarity that ensued when the man had to put the fish in the boat in order to row them back to shore. Don’t stress, little furry guy; you’ll probably have some of it later tonight for dinner.

Embracing All of Nature’s Creatures

This perfectly timed photograph captured Texas pastor Matthew LaGrange and a new furry friend. He had gone fly fishing for the first time on the Big Thompson River, near Estes Park. LaGrange most likely expected a calm day of carefree fishing and a nice catch to bring home.

Instead, he met a huge elk that was not enthused to have to share his fishing spot. This elk wasn’t taking crap from anyone; he had been fishing there longer than the pastor, and this was a perfect spot for fly fishing, so hit the road, bud!

Overcommitting to the Catch

This looks like a situation of either a really unhealthy relationship or a freak accident that probably ended up as one of this man’s least favorite days ever. But at least he’ll always be able to look at this hilarious photo and remember this moment.

Source: luveurpet.com

Was the woman attempting to use him as bait to draw in the bigger fish? Judging by the surprised look on her face seems unlikely. It seems like this poor guy probably fell headfirst into the water, and we have no clue how!

Reverse Fishing

This photograph is so confusing that it’s challenging to figure out what’s going on here. Did the fish catch a human, or did this guy just wake up and decide to fish only using his hands for the sole purpose of snapping this picture?

Source: acidcow.com

Whatever his reasoning was, this is definitely one worth including in the family calendar. At the same time, you have to give it up to this man. He recognized that the fish was going to be the center of attention for any fishing picture.

Not His Original Plan

There is no doubt that this man pictured his plan playing out much differently than what actually happened. This guy didn’t want to listen to his friends when they warned him of global warming. He was set on going ice fishing, no matter the consequences.

Source: rover.com

But let’s be honest for a second; he really did not think this ice fishing thing through. Even if he catches an impressive fish, how in the world is he thinking that he’s going to be able to bring it ashore?!

No Worries When You’re Fishing

There are a lot of layers to this picture, all humorous. After getting past the solemn fact that a boat just sunk down into the depths, you have to giggle at the irony of this photograph.

Source: Pinterest

Naming a vessel to take to sea is no small feat. This crew probably decided on the name “No Worries” for their boat as a way to ensure good luck. Little did they know that they should have named it “Start Screaming for Help.”

Son’s First Catch!

His parents took him along for a family fishing day, and this little tyke was not thrilled. So, he decided to grab a fishing net in place of a pole, and he sought to teach his dad a lesson and make him feel like a caught fish.

Source: Pinterest

Or perhaps he was just attempting to be irritating and funny, both of which he successfully achieved if that was the goal. Good for you, little guy; not only did you mastermind a perfect picture opportunity, but you probably annoyed the hell out of your father!

Fish Are Frightening

You can count on kids to always tell you the truth; just look at their faces! For example, this child is not even remotely happy. His dad is riding high from his catch, his grandma is giddy and proud, but that little boy looks like he just saw a scary ghost.

Source: 50nerdsofgrey.com

Don’t worry, buddy; fish will seem less frightening when you grow older. Plus, we’re pretty confident that you’ll forget all about it after you have had some delectable fried fish for dinner.

Early Morning Meeting

There is something to be said about showing up to a meeting early and dressed in casual clothes. And there’s nothing inherently wrong with meeting someone where they feel most at ease, which in this scenario was fishing without pants.

Source: postize.com

But when you arrive to a meeting this early in the morning and wearing only a small Speedo or tiny underwear, you probably need to stop and rethink some things in your life. One thing we can commend, though, is that confident and professional briefcase.

Return of the Vikings

Who thought that what we learned in history class would be up for debate. Even though history has convinced us otherwise, according to this photo, there are living Vikings ready to fish. These guys aren’t going into battle without a proper stock of fish to eat.

Source: digitalhdphotos.com

The design and quality of their shield, helmets, and other gear seem to have substantially gone down over the last couple of centuries. But hey, these guys definitely have the fighting spirit and are known never to give up, no matter the odds.


It’s alright, bud; it happens to the best of us who’ve ever tried to fish at one point or another. Fish are slippery; there’s no way to avoid that, even if you’re an actual professional and not a Berkeley alum who chose to go fishing with his friend.

Source: pupperish.com

But hey, this photo will be a long-lasting reminder of how much they had enjoyed being together at the lake that day. And we can only hope that the fish fell into the net!

Back to Basics

Who needs a boat, bait, fishing rod, or coolers? This guy from New Caledonia only requires his trusty stick to catch a tasty, large fish. Those who live in the Southwest Pacific do this daily, and fishing enthusiasts should probably hang around these professionals.

Source: luveurpet.com

They might be able to learn a thing or two about the sport. Well done to this man, who seems to be doing aerial gymnastics as well as fishing. We really hope that you enjoyed your well-deserved dinner.

Not a Typical Fishing Trip

We would give $1 million to anyone planet Earth who could talk us through what’s happening in this picture. Perhaps this teenager got grounded on the day she had planned to go fishing, and she ended up getting creative.

Source: acidcow.com

We have to give it to her; we couldn’t think of a better household item to use as bait than a dollar bill. This teen might’ve just invented a new game to play at home. Though when it comes to the catch, we can only pray that the fishing rod came out empty.

A Fish With Attitude

Many speculate that you can see something’s soul by staring into its eyes. And this fish has definitely seen some stuff. You can tell that he’s been around the block, getting caught and then thrown back into the water.

Source: rover.com

But he has reached his limit of these little human games. He gets that you want a nice photo to show your family and friends, but you just interrupted his morning. “Boo, these humans are so rude.” We are in complete agreement with you, Mr. Fish.

A Can-Do Attitude

Many fishing fans will think of their list of essential items and place beer very high up on the list. When this guy’s friends instructed him to bring the beer, we don’t think they intended for him to fill up an entire boat with beer cans.

Source: top13.net

He obviously went above and beyond his duty. We are pretty confident that no fish were caught that day. In fact, we would guess that the boat didn’t even make it into the water.

Two for the Price of One

Not one fish, but a matching pair! This woman definitely had her work cut out for her in that vast blue ocean. It appears that she got a little too comfortable with her marine friends, though. However, we do love the group loyalty as she poses with a fish face to match her new friends.

Source: Pinterest

Sometimes we forget that there are plenty of talented fisherwomen out on the waters alongside the high number of fishermen as well! This picture of this fisherwoman with her two-for-one fish deal needs to go in a photo album.

Reds Sponsored Fishing

Another female entry, we are living for this energy! The Reds baseball team should think about starting up a competitive fishing division, and we nominate this woman to be the first team leader! No doubt this will draw more fans to come to watch.

Source: 50nerdsofgrey.com

She seems to have been fishing at not the cleanest lake, so we hope she really thought about if it was going to be worth eating this fish before taking it home with her. There’s no telling how long she was out there, but she is thrilled with her catch of the day.

Photo Finish

She might look composed now, but right before this shot, this lucky lady’s fishing rod almost broke in half from the weight of that fish. Fast forward to this moment; she is showing off her catch of the day with no sign of stress from the earlier incident.

Source: luveurpet.com

That would have been slightly embarrassing, but thankfully they both survived that fiasco. Everything from how healthy the fish is to the gorgeous clear waters is working harmoniously in this photo – kudos to the photographer.

Proud Moment

Like numerous others have proved to us before, people tend to get fishing wrong. It sure is no easy task, and when you catch that first fish, there is no better feeling of accomplishment. This woman presents that through a wide smile.

Source: postize.com

Just how cool it is to show off the fruits of your labor after a hard day’s work. By the looks of that ecstatic expression, this was likely her first catch of the day. If this was how she started her day, there’s no telling how many more she caught!

I Come Bearing Gifts

Holding the fishing rod in her mouth, walking through the water, this woman looks as if she traveled from far and wide to deliver that winning trout. Whoever is going to receive that gift from the sea should consider themselves one lucky person.

Source: digitalhdphotos.com

Perhaps she did not even need the fishing rod and ended up catching that fish with her bare hands. From this angle, it is a realistic possibility. All we can say is that anyone who can go through all this trouble and not get their hair wet is a pro in our book.

Eye on the Prize

Anyone who says that fishing is only a man’s thing is seriously mistaken. Fishing is a waiting game of patience, and that is one skill that most women are really good at exercising. This woman clearly showed a lot of patience to be able to grab a catch of this size.

Source: pupperish.com

Our fishing queen exhibited some hardcore perseverance when she pulled this gigantic fish out of the water. Move aside, haters. Side note: that fish is almost guaranteed to be one delicious meal later on.

Mom, Look What I Caught!

By the excited grin on her face, it seems like she did not go into the day expecting to catch anything, never mind a fish of this size. Guess she got a bit more than she bargained for because that catch is nearly the same size as her.

Source: luveurpet.com

Is it a possibility that she caught it with only her hands? Maybe she got some sort of help from a friend. No matter the circumstances, this is one impressive catch!

Chilling with Friends

Fishing is incredibly dependent on the weather forecast. Kind of like Goldilocks, can’t be too hot, can’t be too cold, has to be just right. It’s also debatably better when the water is not frozen solid. These pals, however, have managed to find the perfect balance.

Source: acidcow.com

They are bringing the summer vibes while safely floating on a frozen ice island; these fishing friends have everything totally made for them. We just really hope that their small ice slab can hold them for the duration of their excursion.

Nothing Unusual Here

Seagulls are notorious for their fishing skills, and when you are that talented, you are allowed to show off a little here and there. This talented bird decided to immerse itself into the role of a ‘good ol’ human fisherman, and he looks fantastic doing it!

Source: rover.com

We do not doubt, for even a split second, that this jazzed-up seagull put all the rest of the fishermen to complete shame and made them look absurd out there on the water. You cannot expect to be able to mess with the natural order.

Fishing in the City

Who needs the sea, lakes, ponds, rivers, or any body of water when you have your own city sewer so close, free of charge, and at your disposal. Maybe they discovered that there is a whole new kind of fish species swimming underneath our roads.

Source: top13.net

For his sanity, we just hope that he doesn’t catch a rat. But actually, the more we think about it, it seems like a pretty likely outcome. That would be devastating. Maybe after trying out these waters, next time, he’ll go for a lake or something.

Snoozin’ on the Job

We really hope that these men are not on the job. It would be tough to explain to their boss, so here’s to praying that they just fell asleep on a fishing trip for fun. From what we can see in the photograph, they did not do a good job choosing a location.

Source: Pinterest

This place looks more like a gross swamp in the city than an actual river you can find in nature. Trying to fish in the city definitely could explain the nap. Waiting for fish to bite in those conditions is guaranteed to be a dull afternoon.

Natural Sushi

Getting rid of the middleman to have your fresh sushi delivered straight to your mouth sounds like a pretty practical idea. Though, we will caution that this particular method of fishing doesn’t appear to be the safest one.

Source: 50nerdsofgrey.com

Even with all of the safety equipment: a vest, a helmet, gloves, a determined attitude, she still seems to look like she is struggling a bit to keep her head above water. Who would have guessed how dangerous an activity fishing could be?!

40,000 Leagues Under the Sea

Unlike our guy fishing from land, this man certainly took it to the other extreme, or you might say, deeper. On the ‘surface,’ it might appear a little easier than the more traditional type of fishing; it is after much more hands-on.

Source: digitalhdphotos.com

Though the amount of equipment seems less convenient: oxygen tank, diving gear, an old boat for comfort, he looks like he is prepared enough to stay down there for a couple of hours. Let’s just hope he remembers to take a break sometimes.

Hitting a Bit of a Drought

Ideally, fishing means that you are placing your fishing rod into the water. The next step is waiting to if something takes the bait. But this doesn’t apply to road fishing since the road might affect the experience quite a bit.

Source: postize.com

On the other hand, maybe some furry woodland creatures will stick their heads out of a hole to investigate and see what’s attached to the string. We suggest trying it at least once, coming equipped with a genuinely positive attitude, before making any conclusions.

Leader of Lobsters

You have horse whisperers, dog whisperers, and now it appears that you have lobster whisperers as well. This woman is a well-known professional female fisherman (yes, that’s the correct term), and she has some specialized methods of catching marine animals.

Source: pupperish.com

Not many people would be able to handle a lobster, let alone multiple lobsters, crawling all over their bodies. Not only is this woman brave, but she is able to keep that professional composure despite all the legs on her head.

Boating in the Pool

This man was desperate to take out his old boat in the water, but he got a bit too lazy and settled for the pool in his backyard, by the looks of it. He appears to be pretty content just to sit there and not have to worry about any other boat traffic.

Source: luveurpet.com

Perhaps if he stays there long enough, he will begin to see a school of fish surrounding his boat. This guy sure does serve as an example of the power of wishful thinking.

Alternative Fishing

Look, fishing is a challenging business and is not an activity for the faint of heart. You can wait for hours before there is even the slightest movement. And we can’t not mention the discomforts of being outside. It’s not for just anyone out there.

Source: acidcow.com

That does not mean that people shouldn’t enjoy fishing! If you don’t feel like venturing out of the house, do what these men did, and bring the activity to you. It looks like it is working for them, and it also looks incredibly comfortable.

Camo Fishing

This man appears to be a little conflicted about the natural habitat of fish. While he is clearly aiming for the water, he looks to be dressed for hunting in the woods. We’re also not entirely sure if the way he is sneakily creeping towards the water is totally necessary.

Source: acidcow.com

However, that is one unique fishing rod he has brought with him. We are not super confident that he caught anything during this fishing trip, but he has definitely earned himself an ‘A’ for ingenuity.

Daddy-Daughter Fishing Trip

This is one way to convince your daughter to accompany you on a fishing trip. This doting dad must have tried anything to get his daughter to join him on the adventure. Who would have guessed that all you needed is an adorable little pink fishing rod?

Source: rover.com

While this small fishing rod strongly resembles something that looks more like a toy. However, there is simply no denying that it got the job done. We are just wondering if it is available in adult size too!

Don’t Worry, Dude!

The only thing better than a fishing day is a fishing day with your closest friends. But, sometimes things don’t go as planned when you’re out on the water all day, especially if you accidentally lose your grip on your rod and it drops in the water.

Source: top13.net

This guy knows it is rare to find such a special rod and was willing to make the sacrifice to go after it. Thankfully, he was out fishing with a friend who supported him as he dove headfirst in the lake to retrieve his rod.

Themed Shoes

Flip flops are a classic summer footwear option. Not only are they great for relaxing, going to go swim, but they’re also great as fishing shoes. Somebody thought that it was about time that someone combined the best of both worlds.

Source: Pinterest

They developed these fish flip flops, which are a perfect footwear choice for your next fishing trip! They also make a hilarious present for your fish-loving friends, or even better, a fantastic way to frighten the women in your home.

Mixed Breed

Snorkeling gives you an opportunity to observe life down under and be surrounded by tropical fish. One memorable experience down there is seeing schools of fish, especially when you get caught right in the middle of one. You are incorporated into the fish, literally.

Source: 50nerdsofgrey.com

This snorkeler’s friend got a well-timed picture of him, just as a fish was swimming near his head, making him appear as a fish-man. Next time you’re about to bring in your catch, you might consider jumping down under and seeing what you’re missing out on! You may catch a fascinating surprise!

I’d Rather Stay Here, Thanks!

After reeling in your fish, most people think that they’re done. If you catch a large fish, you are far from finished and what comes after is the most crucial part. This fisherman was so overjoyed to catch a large fish and figured that all he had to do was grab it out of the water.

Source: postize.com

But this huge fish had other plans and wasn’t going to give up so quickly. It turns out this man was wrestling with the karate world champion of the water world. The fish hit the fisherman over the head using his back fin.

To Fish or Not to Fish?

Imagine you’re walking around the lake looking for the perfect place to set up shop with your rod. Finally, you spot a bridge. You say to yourself – “Wow, this looks like a perfect place to fish!” You finally arrive at the bridge and are eager to get started.

Source: digitalhdphotos.com

The first sign you see on the bridge reads “FISHING BRIDGE.” You’re so relieved that you found a good spot and no one else is there! That’s when you spot another sign that reads “CLOSED TO FISHING.” So, what do you do?

Fishing as a Family

Some couples love going on fishing trips together. Unfortunately, sometimes their babysitter cancels, and they have to make a choice. Do they reschedule their trip? This couple didn’t want to cancel their trip, so they made do with the cards they were given.

Source: pupperish.com

This couple thought of a great solution to their predicament. While it wasn’t the steamy getaway they had pictured, they turned their dire situation into a fun family vacation. Though we are a bit worried about that crib, it doesn’t look very secure…

Scavenging in the Sewers

Kyle Naegeli, a guy from Texas, is the pioneer of sewer fishing, and he’s amassed over 200,000 followers on his Instagram account. He fishes through sewer holes after he made a bet with his dad that he could catch a fish in the sewer. He ended up winning the bet.

Source: luveurpet.com

While it is difficult to believe that this genuinely works, a YouTube video shows him catching a giant fish. But it seems like his pal needs a training session or two on how to do it right so that you don’t end up falling into the sewer himself.

Just Like Being at Home

If you’re going to be spending the day at the lake, you might as well be comfortable. While most people may bring something small to make the boat ride more comfortable, these men brought nearly all of their living room furniture with them.

Source: acidcow.com

Nothing beats having a piece of home with you. It wouldn’t be surprising to learn of an angry family member at home screaming about her missing furniture. But they look like they’re enjoying themselves, taking in the warm weather over some cold beer and laughs.

Recycling Fisherman

These days, it seems like everyone is talking about being more eco-friendly and making the earth cleaner. It’s an important initiative that requires all of us to help with our part. Well, whoever made these hooks is clearly the captain of the conservation boat.

Source: acidcow.com

It’s clear that he has a deep-rooted love of both fishing and the environment. He used recycled beer bottle tops and fashioned them into lures. These small key chains are the perfect gift for a lover of the pastime.

Age Is Only a Number

One great thing about fishing is that age doesn’t matter, and it’s something that you can continue doing through old age. However, it’s still more manageable when you’re younger and have more strength because it can be exhausting.

Source: rover.com

This man here might have to get there with a walker, but nothing was going to stop him from going out and enjoying his favorite activity for a second, even if that meant escaping from his old person’s home. Hats off to him; that is one cool man.

Tough Day of Fishing

Of course, the whole goal of fishing is for the person with the rod to catch a fish. However, it looks like in this situation that things turned out a little worse for this guy. Instead of reeling in a fish, the fish appears to have caught him!

Source: top13.net

While this picture is probably posed and not natural, the photographer sure made it look realistic. We know that if we strolled past that in the middle of a park, we would let out a heart-stopping scream.

A Messy Nightmare

Fishing isn’t as easy as grabbing any rod and heading out to a local lake. Instead, there are various types of rods from which you need to select one. One popular model is the bait caster, though this kind of rod has been known to be a bit problematic.

Source: Pinterest

The spool isn’t automatic, so you have to control it yourself and use just a specific amount of pressure. If you don’t use it right, then your fishing trip can end up looking like this guy’s trip. Essentially, what you’re seeing is one giant, tangled mess of fishing spool string!

Uninvited Guests

This man seemed to be having a great time on his boat until a crocodile leaped out of the water and onto his boat. Obviously, he hadn’t been expecting this type of visitor, and it appears that he barely managed to escape.

Source: 50nerdsofgrey.com

What makes this photo iconic is that someone with a camera was there and ready to capture the moment. If you’re planning a fishing trip, you should always remember to bring with you a camera and a close friend to capture the epic moments.

Always Prepared

Everybody has an item that they always take with them, whether it’s a water bottle or lip balm. For those who are members of the competitive fishing community, having a ruler with you while out fishing is crucial.

Source: postize.com

Whether you need to prove to your friend that you caught the bigger fish or if you’re attempting to win prize money, the ruler will decide. But what happens if you don’t have one? Well, obviously, you draw one on your own body!

Just a Little Obsessed With Fishing

You know the feeling; you’re so excited the night before leaving for a big, planned trip. Some people fall asleep looking at pictures of their upcoming trip, or they begin wearing certain outfits in anticipation of the experience to come.

Source: digitalhdphotos.com

Well, this man took things to another level. He’s so excited for his upcoming fishing trip that he snuggled and slept with his fishing rods at night. We are confident that his wife is unhappy about this. If she presented him with an ultimatum, our guess is that he’d choose the rods.

Relaying the Rules

There is nothing more fun than signage that uses humor, rather than typical language, to relay the rules. This sign instructs dogs always to keep their owners on a leash. It also says that swimming is allowed, but only if you possess gills, fins, or feathers.

Source: pupperish.com

So, if you find yourself in or near this location, double-check that your dog puts you on a proper leash and glue on some gills or feathers if you’re going to swim in the water.

How Did He Pass His Licensure Test?

A lot of people claim that there aren’t many differences between driving a car and a boat. Though when driving a car, you have to avoid potholes, in a boat, you have to dodge bigger things. Look at this boat whose driver wasn’t able to clear this giant rock in time.

Source: luveurpet.com

While in a car, you sometimes can get away with driving over a pothole; in a boat, driving over rocks is a little less realistic. There’s a reason why driving a boat requires a specific license, and we can only hope that his man had his.

Real Fans Only

The reel of a fishing rod is one of the fisherman’s most essential tools. You are only able to control your line with one, and you need it for catching fish. Without this part of the rod, you simply cannot catch any fish.

Source: acidcow.com

Well, someone thought that reels could be used for more than fishing, like as home decor. He put the reel in his bathroom, where he repurposed it into a holder for toilet paper. On the water or in the bathroom, the reel proves itself to be a critical item.

No Big Deal, Just a Little Water

When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade. What this means in practice is that if you find yourself in the middle of a flash flood, you should automatically leave your car with your fishing rod and set up camp.

Source: acidcow.com

Though not the first thing most of us would do in this situation, but hey, more power to him! We guess you have to be a real fisherman to understand. Hopefully, this man at least caught his mail as a reward for his efforts.

An Afternoon Spent Fishing is “Reel” Therapy

There are tons of various therapies to manage your mental health. Fishing can be considered a kind of therapy. Most of the time out on the water is pretty mindless, just sitting with your rod. It can be a fantastic way to clear your head.

Source: rover.com

This boat owner is the grandfather of fishing therapy. He is such a firm believer in the therapy that he calls his boat “Reel Therapy.” Evidently, the owner of this boat feels that fishing is therapeutic and works to spread the message to others.

Feeling Snacky

If you’re someone who tends to be snacky throughout the day, fly fishing might not be the best fit for you. This sport has you immersing half of your body in the water. This isn’t the best environment for you to pack a PB & J lunch.

Source: top13.net

But this guy in the picture is a dedicated fly fisher AND snacker. He’s an example of being able to have the best of both worlds. He remembered to pack a tray table and balanced it on the top of a tube. Some may even call this guy a genius!

Vertical Fishing

To find the perfect fishing spot, some people use blow-up floats while others don’t pay the rules any mind. Some go fish directly after their wedding. But we think these people outdo everyone else. Somehow, these guys were able to get their hands on a huge crane.

Source: Pinterest

Maybe one of them had one around their neighborhood. Well, they used the crane to spice up their fishing outing. We don’t know what advantage height plays in fishing, but these guys look to be enjoying themselves, and that’s the important thing.

Fishing With Safari Animals

Fly fishing is a very popular type of fishing. This method requires you to walk into the water until it reaches your waist before you cast your line. So, it goes without saying that you need to come fully prepared with waterproof gear.

Source: 50nerdsofgrey.com

This man decided that he would rather not stand upright in the water all day, which guessing his age, we can understand his point. His solution was buying a giraffe float to sit out into the water. We hope that the giraffe didn’t scare away the fish!

Harder Than It Looks

Fish aren’t as stupid as humans might assume, making fishing a tougher sport. Most fishermen have to spend hours with their rods waiting to catch something, and they’re lucky if they catch one fish. Fishing is a craft that requires tricking the fish.

Source: postize.com

More often than not, fish outsmart the fisherman. In this picture, you can see a fish realize that the dangling bait dangling is dangerous. So he swam right next to the poles and in front of the fishermen as if to say to them, “Better luck next time, idiots.”

Seriously Into Fishing

There are numerous ways to fish, the most popular being with a classic rod. You can also catch fish with a big net. Despite it not being as common as using a rod, some people prefer this method. The woman in this photo looks fearless with her net.

Source: digitalhdphotos.com

She prefers nets so much that she chose to wear one on her head as well. We can’t say much since she seems to be pretty successful at it. Maybe that iconic fashion choice is helping her catch fish. You know the saying if you can’t beat them, join them.

Fraternal Twins

There are over 33,000 different species of fish worldwide. Each species has distinctive qualities that distinguish it from other types. Some species have tentacles, while others are poisonous. Teeth are a characteristic that differs by species.

Source: pupperish.com

This fish’s teeth are special. He has incisors and molars that look like a human’s. What’s makes this even more silly is that the fish and this guy have similar smiles! We are afraid to say that it looks like both of them could benefit from a trip to the dentist.

Can Anyone Read The Sign?

There was a well-thought-out reason as to why this sign was posted up in this particular spot. For that reason, people are not legally allowed to fish from this bridge. Obviously, this no fishing rule in the photo was entirely ignored by the fishermen.

Source: luveurpet.com

They will fish wherever and whenever they want. They don’t seem to have any intention of obeying the rules. Our guess is that there must be some good fish in the area; otherwise, we don’t think these fishermen would risk the possibility of arrest.

The Supportive Partner

Shared hobbies aren’t necessary for a successful relationship, but it makes things easier. Supporting your partner in what they do, however, is necessary. This woman appears to be fine with her husband’s hobby but doesn’t intend on partaking herself.

Not only is she isolating herself by talking on her cell phone, but she’s wearing heels…on a boat. It doesn’t look like she at all interested in getting up from that chair to see what her husband is doing or if he’s caught anything yet.

Peeping Tom

On a fishing trip, you could be sitting there for hours and end up getting home without any fish. Maybe this man started wondering if there were even any fish beneath the ice. Rather than aimlessly waiting, he took matters into his own hands, or in this scenario, his head.

Perhaps he misplaced his fishing rod and was attempting to catch a fish with his mouth. For whatever reason he was down there, the water looks like it would be absolutely freezing, so we hope that he found what he was looking for.

It Was the Effort That Counted

When you think of a perfect, original solution, you pounce on the opportunity before someone else takes your idea. Well, this man’s excitement was a bit premature. He thought that he had found a perfect solution by going out on a board.

He thought that balancing a board from the dock was brilliant, but the board had a different idea for the two of them. We are certain that he regretted his idea in a big way when the board snapped underneath him, dropping into the water.

A Dry Sense of Humor

There are two things that need to present if you want to fish. The first, of course, is a rod, net, or tool to catch the fish, and the second is a body of water with live fish in it. Without both of these things, fishing is basically impossible.

Well, it looks like this sign is unnecessary, considering that there isn’t a river running underneath the bridge. We hope that whoever was responsible for putting up this sign did so when there was actually water present. Or at least had a “dry” sense of humor.

Prize-Winning Catch

When you go on a fishing trip, you never know what’s going to happen. What is guaranteed is your patience as you sit with your fishing rod for hours until you catch a fish, if you’re lucky enough to catch something at all.

This guy looks to have caught the surprise of a lifetime. He’s showing off his prize-winning catch, among other things. He seems to have been twice as lucky today! Not only did he catch a ginormous fish, but he also caught himself a girlfriend!

Restful Solution

Fishing can be long hours, and the lack of movement can be discouraging. It’s imperative to remember to give your body a break. Rod stands were invented so you could rest your arms! It provides you a break while keeping the rod and hook in the water.

If you don’t have a rod stand, then that is a whole other issue. This guy wasn’t going to let the absence of a rod stand keep him from a well-earned rest. So, he created his own human stand, though the position itself hardly seems like a rest.

A Bear-y Good Catch

A fishing excursion in the woods can bring you up close and personal with some huge animals. This guy looks like he was so excited at having caught a fish that he wasn’t paying close attention to his surroundings.

While he assumed that he was alone in the picture, there was actually a bear photo-bombing his photo. Isn’t it so annoying when they do that? We wish we also had a picture of the photographer because we can only imagine what his face looked like.

Do as I Say, Not as I Do

When you initially learn how to fish, you’re taught how to cast out the line and how to position your arms on the fishing rod. We’re guessing that this guy was attempting to cast his line really far into the water.

But he forgot the safety rule of only following through with his arms, not his whole body. Forgetting this crucial step caused him to throw himself off of the dock and completely in the water. We’re relieved that we don’t have to see what happened.

Good Try, Buddy

Owning any mode of transportation comes with a lot of responsibility to learn safety rules and avoid dangerous situations. For instance, during the off-season, it’s imperative to keep your boat out of the water, or else major damage can happen.

When the weather improves, it’s time to bring the boat back out. To bring it back, you need a loading ramp. Unfortunately, this guy didn’t understand that the boat had to be backed up into the water rather than driven into it.

In Good Spirits

When there’s a rainstorm or severe flood, things can get damaged. If the area isn’t built to handle that much water, it can end up causing damage to people’s houses and buildings. But sometimes, the situation can end up leading to something funny, like this picture.

While we have a tough time imagining that this guy is actually trying to catch any fish in this pothole, it does make for a very hilarious photo. But hey, fish have been found in potholes in the past, so this dude definitely has a chance!

Hanging Out on the Water

Some fishermen have brought living room furniture to the water while others prefer to bring next to nothing with them. Fishing can be a therapeutic activity, and this guy seems to be taking advantage of it by taking himself on the water by himself.

So, he created a great fishing boat that is perfect for one person. Although the chair isn’t as fancy as living room furniture, it’s better than a plastic or metal chair. The guy also installed a motor into the boat so that he didn’t have to paddle to find good fishing locations.

Special Kind of Honeymoon

Many people choose to celebrate marriage with flowers, food, family, and dancing. But weddings are also a chance to express your unique style. This bride decided that she wanted to celebrate her new status as a wife by fishing.

Maybe they love going fishing together and wanted to incorporate that into their day. This woman headed straight to the water with her fishing rod after the altar, or maybe she passed on the altar altogether. Clearly, she’s a girl with her priorities straight.

A Purr-fectly Loyal Fan Club

Commercial fishing often involves tough conditions, which have fishermen spending long hours out on the water and facing harsh weather conditions. But this is their job, and they have to work hard in order to sell their fish to local restaurants and markets.

It seems like these fishermen have customers that can’t afford the price of their catches. Obviously, cats love eating fish, and it looks like they’re attempting to get in on the fresh fish these men caught. Luckily for these cats, the fishermen are generous and happy to share.

Inception Pool

There’s nothing better than seeing the ways that people make the most out of crappy situations. While flash floods can be quite dangerous if you aren’t prepared, they can also make for a memorable experience.

This man seems like he was prepared…to have a blast!! He had plenty of beer and made sure that he had an ample supply of bait on hand to take full advantage of the floodwaters in his backyard. He almost makes the flood look like a fun time.

Fishing Can Be a Drag

Humans arrogantly think that they can beat nature. Whatever this guy caught is not about to come ashore quickly, and this guy isn’t giving up. The man appears fully determined to win the fight, but he doesn’t look like he’s having a lot of luck today.

There’s a reason why fishing is considered a sport, and that’s because it’s an activity that requires muscle, endurance, physical exertion, and strength. We don’t know what happened in the end, but we hope that his dedication paid off!
