Joke/Quote #9's early Saturday afternoon, hotter than hades outside and I'm feeling the AC big time, so... no fishing today, lets have a good laugh!
I fish better with a lit cigar; some people fish better with talent.  
   ~Nick Lyons, Bright Rivers, 1977

A fisherman returned to shore with a giant marlin that was bigger and heavier than he. On the way to the cleaning shed, he ran into a second fisherman who had a stringer with a dozen baby minnows. The second fisherman looked at the marlin, turned to the first fisherman and said, " Only caught one, eh?"
...of all the liars among mankind, the fisherman is the most trustworthy. 
    ~William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954

   One day Jim was out fishing and was not having any luck at all, he tried lures, worms and other types of bait and was just not catching anything. Tom was fishing about 20 feet from him and was catching fish as fast as he cast his line out. Jim was getting very jealous of this show off, so he asked Tom what he was using for bait. The man said " I am using worms, but I dip them in whiskey" Jim got really interested in this technique so he asked Tom if he could try one of these drunk worms. Tom had no problem with this request so he handed Jim one of the worms. Jim placed the worm on the hook and cast out no sooner than his hook hit the water, Jims pole began to bow like crazy, he set his hook and started to reel it in. Once he got his catch up to the shore he noticed that the worm had the fish by the throat.
 The difference between a fairy tale and a fish story is a fairy tail begins, "Once upon a time..." and a fish story begins, " This ain't no bullshit..." 
   That's all I have for now. I'll likely get out with TS tomorrow and maybe try my luck loally Monday morning.
