Rather Be Fishing

I guess this past weekend was some masterful golf tournament or something like that.  I don’t know much about golfing; always figured it was for folks who did not fish.  Looks to me like well-known professional golfers playing in big tournaments would still rather be fishing.

Water must have been pretty warm, or at least it better have been, he was jigging too fast for cold water.

That “rod” was really stiff.  I prefer something with a little more action to it.

Everyone in the crowd was cheering for him to pull a fish outta that hole!  Must have been a bunch of ice anglers there.

Caddies feel the same way.

You will not catch me on a golf course unless I am on one of the ponds–there are some really good fish, and bullfrogs on golf course ponds.

Besides, I could never trust a sport that considers water to be a “hazard”.


Late night bass raid. Golf course pond? No comment.

P.S.  To all the golfers I may have offended.  Sorry.  You would be more relaxed if you went fishing.

P.P.S.  Sorry again, just funning with ya.
