Good Fishing Quotes

Recommended Posts

Scott M

I'm a sucker (no pun intended) for fishing quotes. And hunting quotes too. I've seen a few good ones on some people's signatures on emails and on these boards. I was hoping some of you would share a few.

Here is one that I use and like. My wife actually found it and I keep it on my desk next to some pictures from fishing trips I have taken. When I see that quote or look at those pictures, I can take a 5 minute vacation and just imagine being out on the water again.

"If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there would be a shortage of fishing poles." -Doug Larson

Heres one more I just found that's pretty good with an Unknown Author

Walleye fishermen watch Monday night football, drink beer, drive pickup trucks and prefer noisy women with big breasts. Trout fishermen watch MacNeil-Lehrer, drink white wine, drive foreign cars with passenger-side air bags and hardly think about women at all. This last characteristic may have something to do with the fact that trout fishermen spend most of the time immersed up to the thighs in ice-cold water. ~Author Unknown

In regards to bragging...

Man with big fish does not take alley home - Chinese proverb

In regards to skipping church on Sunday...

Some go to church and think about fishing, others go fishing and think about God

Justification for skipping church on Sunday...

The gods do not deduct from man's allotted span the hours spent in fishing

In regards to lying to your wife about how much you spent at Cabelas...

My biggest worry is that my wife (when I'm dead) will sell my fishing gear for what I said I paid for it

And my all time favorite (this one's deep fellas)...

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after - Henry David Thoreau

One of my favorite quotes that have helped me through hard times is " In the end, nothing really matters becasue everthing merges together and a river runs through it. " Norman McClean.

As a Highschool kid and now college kid growing up fishing, my friends of the oppisite gender, as well as ex gfs would always ask me to take them fishing once or let me talk them into it. They only went once but thats a diff story crazy.gif Anyways my favorite thing to say after we motored to a spot and were getting set up was to look at them with a smirk and say " Grab my rod" grin.gifgrin.gif

"Fisherman should be the easiest of men to convince to commence the search for the soul, because fishing is nothing but the pursuit of the elusive. Fish invisible to laymen like me are visible to anglers like you by hundred subtle signs. How can you be so sagacious and patient in seeking fish, and so hasty and thick as to write off your soul because you can not see it?".

Titus (the philosopher) speaking to Gus Orviston (the fisherman)

in regards to philosophy

From the novel "The River Why"

"Once I said that trout fishing is a spiritual thing, and after a lifetime, I know it is true. For that matter, all fishing is a spiritual thing to a boy, no matter what he catches. The sense of surprise, the eternal wonder of a fish coming out of the water, the deep inherent sense of primitive accomplishment in getting food by simple means, and the Pipes always playing softly in the background -- no wonder all boys love fishing, no wonder all men, who are really boys at heart, feel the same."

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.   
    • Wanderer
      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!   
    • Bryan P
      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some! 
    • eyeguy 54
      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁
    • ANYFISH2
      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
