Joke/Quote #7

  WOW... two weeks without a post. Sorry. It's not as if I haven't been out fishing, it just wasn't very enjoyable.
 Two Saturdays ago Tackle Shop and I went to Cambridge to try our luck in some of the waters we fished this winter, but as I suspected there was little access to the water. TS did manage a tiny pike.

   Last weekend we toured the city in the AM looking for treasures and then hit the south Simcoe area in the PM. TS and his trusty bucket of minnows had a memorable day with over a dozen largemouth bass (4 over 3Lbs) and countless sunfish and rockbass. As for me ...I didn't get a single bite on the fly all day long. I didn't post because TS sometimes toots his own horn enough for both of us!

   Anyways... before I get to meat of this post, I'd like to put forward a photo challenge to all you other bloggers out there. In my visits to some of the more popular fishing areas, I've noticed a growing trend for anglers to "decorate" overhead wires with a wide variety of tackle. I'm sure you've all seen these collections, so why not share the entertainment with the rest of us. Post a picture of the most decorated wires in your neighbourhood. Lets see which area has the most incompetents
A nice selection from Little Lake, Cambridge

  Near a highway bridge several boats were scattered about in the lake as there was the Annual Bass Catchers Classic fishing tournament in progress, when a funeral procession came by on the bridge. Everybody just kept on fishing except for one fisherman, who put his fishing pole down, stood up, removed his hat and remained in that fashion until the funeral procession was passed. A nearby fisherman happened to see this and was impressed at how respectful the man had been, so he cranked up his boat and pulled up beside the other mans boat. "Howdy, I saw how considerate you were toward that funeral procession, pausing and standing like that. I wish I had been as thoughtful"
The other man replied, "I reckon it's the least I could do. After all, we'd been married for nearly 30 years."

A woman goes into Walmart to buy a rod and reel. She doesn't know which one to get so she just grabs one and goes over to the register.
There is a Walmart "associate" standing there with dark shades on.
She says, "Excuse me sir...can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?"
He says, "Ma'am I'm blind,but if you drop it on the counter I can tell you everything you need to know about it from the sound it makes."
She didn't believe him, but dropped it on the counter anyway.
He says, "That's a six-foot graphite rod with Zebco 202 reel and 10-pound test line...It's a good all around rod and reel and it's $20.00."
She says, "That's amazing that you can tell all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter.
I think it's just what I'm looking for so I'll take it."
He walks behind the counter to the register.
In the meantime the woman passes gas. At first she is embarrassed, but then realizes there is no way he could tell it was her, being blind, he wouldn't know that she was the only person around.
He rings up the sale and says, "That will be $25.50."
She says, "But didn't you say it was $20.00?"
He says, "Yes Ma'am, the rod and reel is $20.00, the duck call is $3.00 and the catfish bait is $2.50. 

Bill, Fred, and John were out fishing. Suddenly Bill caught a huge fish that pulled him off the boat and into the water. Fred dived off the boat and came up a few minutes later with Bill. John did mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and commented, "I don't remember Bill having such bad breath!" Fred looked at Bill and said, "I don't remember Bill wearing a snowmobile suit, either!" 
   That's all I have for you now, hope to get out and catch something tomorrow. If not, I'm sure to at least get another good shot of some hydro wire ornamentation.


  1. LMAO! I love that joke. The cartoons are great too. Was a good laugh for my Friday right as I leave work to go enjoy the weekend! Hopefully rain free!

  2. Just opening this post put a smile on this face.
    Great stuff.

  3. I found that first joke to be particularly funny

  4. A great way to end the week...still laughing!

  5. Hoot! Great stuff...and I think I like tackle much better than shoes, hanging from those wires...

  6. Me thinks, paid casting lessions at the power line would be very profitable.


  7. After planning a fishing trip two weeks in advance up in port severn, renting a boat, only fishing two hours due to the thunderstorm, getting totally soaked, loosing my favorite Mepps spinner and not catching any fish..... this blog totally made my day... keep em coming guys!
