One can never get tired of fishermen's tall tales, and just when you think you've heard them all, another funny joke comes along to make you laugh.


One day, a man had an awful time fishing at the lake.

He sat in the blazing sun all day without a single bite. All he caught was a terrible sunburn and the only bites he had came from a cloud of mosquitoes.

He was tired and hungry and thirsty and just wanted to go home. But he knew if he showed up empty handed, his wife would laugh at him.

So, on his way home, he stopped at the fish market on his way home and ordered four catfish. He told the salesman:

“Pick four large ones out and throw them at me, will you?”

“Why do you want me to throw them at you?” the salesman asked, perplexed.

“Because I want to tell my wife that I 'caught them',” he replied.

“Okay, but I suggest that you take the salmon,” the salesman said.

“Why’s that?” he asked, confused. There weren't any salmon in the lake he fished in.

“Because your wife came in earlier today and said that if you came by, I should tell you to take the salmon,” the salesman explained. “Because that’s what she’d like for dinner tonight.”


You can't beat a fisherman's wife. She can see right through the tallest tales! Do you have a fisherman in your family? Be sure to share this joke with them.

Two fishermen, Jarrad Edwards and Casey Mitchell, sailed together at St Kilda, Victoria where they were trying to catch fish but spotted a squid instead.

Since they had come up empty-handed all day, hooking a squid seemed like a better-than-nothing catch for the pair, and Edwards decided to go for it.

Seconds after reeling in his catch, a splash of black ink hit Edwards right in the face. Of course, his best friend caught it all on camera.

Covered in black ink, Edwards and Mitchell enjoyed the funny side to their fishing trip.
