Me: I'm either going fishing or I am going to cheat on you. Your choice.

Her: Happy fishing!

My wife is most always in the back of the boat so no worries for me. I catch crap when I take my friends fishing and not her. There is one thing i miss sometimes..... silence. 😁

I have told work some white lies, like I have an appointment and won't be back. It's not really a lie, I just don't elaborate. But lately, work has been to steady to take off. Also, it's hot, so the bite has moved to morning and late evening. It's not dark until about 9:00. I can make that.

"Lies by omission" are something I've been very guilty of in the past.  Something I'm constantly trying to break the habit of.

But what do you do if you catch the world record bass while you're "working out"? 😉

Actually, I think everyone just helped me understand that it's me that has the problem. I'm really not sure why I'm trying to hide it. I think I'm a really good father, I spend a lot of time with my kids when they're awake, I spend a lot of time with my wife and even watch her shows with her (Jersey Shore, Dancing with the Stars, Catfish)...maybe I just feel guilty asking her for time to myself. Anyways, I'm going fishing Friday after hitting some golf balls after work, and that'll be the first step in stopping these white lies.

You should get a free pass anytime you want if you gotta watch Jersey Shore

Lied to my teacher over email saying that I had the flu and I wouldn’t be back for the rest of the week when I was really gone to a fishing tournament. The whole class made me a card that said “Get Well Soon!”. They still to this day think I had the flu. The things I do for fishing.

Dude, everybody's family is different but if you are married with kids and get to golf and fish in the same day, I should be asking you for advice.

Taking one of my boys fishing afterwork, and she's taking the other to swim practice, so it's team work there. Not getting a round in, but I have a lighted range near me, so I'll go there after sunset and hit a bucket with some beers. If I went fishing and played a full round, I'd be gone for 12 hours!

I've wondered a few times if I should throw a telescopic rod and a couple lures in my golf bag. If I could get a couple casts in every time I put a ball in the water I might catch a lot of fish.

There are a lot of different things you can tell your wife but at he end of it it’s your call my wife knows when I go  luckley me I work near a couple small ponds near work so I go at lunch  and she is a school teacher so on vacations when I don’t have to drop my sun off at school I go in to work early aka I go fishng

My best advice to you is to start telling your wife the truth. If she were to find out you weren't going to any of these places you've been lying about just to go fishing it could have really negative effects on your whole relationship.

 

Start telling her the truth. You'll feel a whole lot better knowing that she knows exactly what you're doing and you didn't have to fib to do it.

I guess I'm one of the lucky ones...

 

My wife is my BEST friend... EVER! We got married late in life (7 years ago). She TOTALLY supports my fishing whenever I can get a chance to. She grew up fishing and we love to go together. I work at home and some times have "days off" during the week. Last time I completed a project I was having problems with, I emailed her to share the relief... Her reply: "Have fun Fishing"! Don't get me wrong, we love spending time together doing anything including just talking... But she has gotten really excited that I have gotten this excited about Bass fishing and is the first one to suggest that I head out to the lake. She reminds me to bring my cell phone in case she wants to ask what time to have dinner ready when I get back, but not to rush... Honey, stay out till dark, cause that's when they really start to bite.

 

Geeze! How lucky can one guy get? I get to have her AND go fishing!

If you want to go fishing, just start acting romantic and 4 out of 5 times she'll send you fishing.

Ive lied quite a few times to my wife of 12 years about where I was at but was fishing instead. She always finds out always so I just tell her the truth now. She doesn’t get upset about it like she used to. 

Now lies about how much I spend on tackle well I still haven’t been able to break that habit 😬

I don't remember ever lying to my wife about going fishing. She used to try to control me early on in the marriage, like constantly trying to legislate my schedule . I did some side work after my regular job, and would fish after the job at ponds wherever I was, and didn't tell her. That's the closest I came to lying, I reckon. Through the years, I've found that the " happy wife-happy life " thing is pretty true, so I am learning to do things that are important to her and show I love her. Now that she knows I really love her, she doesn't have any problem with my fishing.

I used to think " If I do this for her, or with her I'll be missing out on what I could catch today " Even though I laugh or smile when I hear " I'm gonna miss her " by Brad Paisley, and though some of you wouldn't agree, my wife means more to me than my fishing.( Gulp, I actually said it )

Ever since I've tried to really love her like I should, now I have so much more time to fish, and I mean time when I'm not stressed wondering if I should be doing something for her- because I already have been doing it.

Not saying I've arrived, just better than before.

I was going to say, if you have to lie to your wife to go fishing, you have the wrong wife.

 

That's not correct.

 

If you have to lie to your wife to go fishing, she has the wrong husband.

Never have to lie about it.  She works a lot of hours and when she's home she's happy to spend time with the cats and watch her fixer upper shows. If I'm there I want to watch some cheesy B movie or Sanford and Son reruns.
