These relatable fishing memes will leave any fisherman shaking their head.
Whether you are a weekend warrior or a professional fisherman, there are things that others do that just make you cringe. We have all seen the fishing memes that make us laugh but there are ones out there that are just a little too relatable that create a different feeling.
Anger, maybe. We aren’t all perfect, but we all know there are unwritten rules when it comes to fishing that we all strive to abide by. We also know that as fishermen and women, we live for the fight, the big catch, and just the time spent on the water. Below are fishing memes that just seem to knock heads with us as fishermen and women and go against all that we fish for.
1. That one “honest” friend
You know, because he’s your buddy, he would never.
2. “That wasn’t today, that was last weekend honey!”
This doesn’t relate to any of us right? We are all honest, hard working men and women who never call in sick to work, at least not to fish. When we are at work, we are at work…maybe.
3. When technology tells us we aren’t the fishermen we think we are
Why is it we could catch fish as a kid with a bobber, hook and night crawler in the pond where they say, “There are no fish here.” Now, we have technology that literally shows up where the fish are, we see them there and we can’t even get a hit. Frustrating? Some wouldn’t even understand.
4. Pain in the butt!
This just makes me cringe. The pain endured from this both physically and psychologically. Just imagine next time they go out together, “Hey brother, watch my back. Nevermind!”
Well this looks familiar.
6. #BaitcasterProblems Pt. 2
If it’s not your buddy, it’s you. Relatable? Only about every six casts, yet I still love to fish with it.
7. The comforting spouse
As if it isn’t bad enough already. You waited all week at work to get out there Saturday morning and fished until sunset, only to come home empty handed. Then this happens.
8. Then there’s this guy…
There’s one in every crowd. He is usually the expert, yet always seems to love to play 21 questions on every photo you post or story you share.
9. Very superstitious
We all know the number one bad luck charm when it comes to fishing. Of all the fishing superstitions, this is just a no-no.
10. As if I wasn’t here first.
I mean, really though. Sure it may be an accident, but we are standing shoulder to shoulder, parallel. You can’t make a cast off the other side of the boat, further down the bank or on the other side of the bridge, really?
11. Attention! Attention! Read all about it!
That spot you found eight years ago by mistake. It produces every time you go. It’s quiet, no one is around. And out of the way of the beaten path by at least 20 minutes. You tell the guy at work who just wants “…to get a spot where my kids can catch a fish.” Say goodbye to that sweet gem.
12. “That guy…”
This is Frank. Frank has been telling you all week how excited he is for your weekend fishing trip. You leave Saturday morning at 6am. Frank has to be home by 8am. Don’t be like Frank.
