Ah, the fishing life. We can’t think of anything better than going into a fishing boat, going out to the deep blue sea, cracking open a beer, and unreeling your line as you settle in for a day of relaxation. However, some peoples experience failed to align with their expectations when they headed for the open water!
Fishing can be classified as a “think little, do little” hobby that patient people find relaxing and soothing. It is something that requires a great deal of patience and it’s a rewarding activity if you’re not the type of person to get frustrated easily. Fishing is not easy at all – far from it, actually. Can you imagine hanging out on a bridge for hours without even so much as a tug? However, things will be a lot better if you have the right companions, some beer, and topnotch banter to get you through it. When you are armed with these things, an entire fishing day will pass by like a breeze! Of course, one should not look down on the therapeutic effects that come with solo fishing. Sometimes, this is exactly what you need to clear your head and improve your disposition. If you plan on going by yourself, you just need to pack some sandwiches, fishing poles, a sun hat, and booze.
Let’s get to the nitty-gritty of it. Bait is one of the most basic concepts in fishing. Most people like worms, though there are plenty of things that you can use in a pinch. Cream and fruits would be nice, though you would be better off eating those on your own. Inventive fishermen came up with various methods of luring fish: dog food, canned meat, raisins, and even bubblegum. These should all work if you left yours at home!
As you read in, you will find just about everything that has to do with fishing. There are some baffling ones and other ingenious solutions, though we’ll let you decide which is which here. No one ever said these things were mutually exclusive either! We hope you’re ready to look at some hilarious fishing photos. Who knows, you might even learn a thing or two.
This fella certainly won the catch of the day contest, though it must have been difficult picking which one to take home and which one to throw back to the sea. How about you, what would you have done if you were in his place?
