You Know You're A Fisherman When:

Recommended Posts

I'll start.

You know you're a fisherman when:

 

-Your boat cost more than the truck you pull it with

 

-You can operate electronics with the latest and greatest technology, but can't figure out how to text your kids

 

 

Keep it going. Let's see what you guys can come up with.

It's only January and everything you could possibly rearrange, clean or polish is already done!

You forget your anniversary every year, but have no problem remembering to renew your fishing license.

You bought matching truck and boat trailer rims.

You pierced your daughters ears with a 2/0 worm hook.

You named a pet after your favorite lure.

You have bluegill or perch in the family fish tank.

You have a skin mouth right next to the wedding photos.

You find a way to bring up your personal best in every conversation.

You have a spare rod combo in your wife's car.

You bought a house in a bad neighborhood, poor school system, and far away from work just so you're closer to the lake.

Your favorite dance is The Worm.

You have reel grease stains on your couch.

You thought about eating pork trailers.

On a recent trip to court you corrected the judge that you set the hook instead of setting the bail.

I...I mean you moan & groan about having to be up at 8 am for work, but you are on the lake by 4:30 am on weekends

In every picture your family has of you, you're holding a fish.

You drive 45 minutes to the grocery store across town because the pond next to that one has bigger fish

Very Good.

 

Some real Classics right there.

 

What if you have a Skin mount IN your wedding Photo ?

You can drag a boat to the ends of the earth, but cant drag the trash to the end of the driveway :grin:

 

That one sounds like it's been said out loud before.

You proposed to your wife on your bass boat. 

You punch your woman in the face at night due to setting the hook in your dream. 

You tell your buddy to hold your pole and its not awkward. 

walking the dog requires a fishing pole, not a leash.

how the heck are you setting the hook?

 

 

When you tell people you like to fish and then they say they love fishing  :rolleyes7: and proceed to tell you the last time they got out was more than a year ago.

If you put more gas in the boat than the truck.

 

If the only time your wife believes you is when you say you are going fishing.

guilty

 

I fished Lake Agnes the morning of and remember more about fishing than the ceremony...then we left for Highland Marina, West Point Lake, Georgia for the honeymoon.  We have not been on a vacation without the boat since.

Hard, just ask my wife lol.

 

Both of us were sleeping and my wife had her head on my right shoulder. I set the hook as if I was bringing the rod up towards the right side of my body. I hit her with a closed fist due to my right hand gripping my reel. She woke up cussing wondering why I just smacked her and I was upset because I didn't get to land that giant bass that just ate my jig.  :laugh5:
