Today's jokes are all about fishermen who got themselves in some pretty fishy situations! Hopefully, they can make you smile like a fisherman with a bucket filled with fish!



One day three fishermen were out at sea when they came upon a mermaid, a magical mermaid. The mermaid told the fishermen that she would grant them each one wish.

The first fisherman asked the mermaid to double his IQ. So she granted his wish, and to his surprise, he started reciting Shakespeare’s greatest works!

The second fisherman was very impressed, so he asked the mermaid to triple his IQ. The mermaid granted his wish, and the fisherman started to solve math problems he had never seen before.

The third fisherman was so impressed with the other two fishermen’s knowledge, but he wanted to be smarter than them both, so he said, "Mermaid, I wish for you to quadruple my IQ!"

The mermaid hesitated and said, "Are you sure that is what you want? It will change your life forever!" The fisherman agreed.

The mermaid granted his wish to quadruple his IQ, and so she turned him into a woman.



While sports fishing off the Florida coast, a tourist fisherman’s boat capsized. But because he had a big fear of alligators, he clung to the boat, even though he could swim.

The tourist then spotted an old man strolling on the beach and yelled, "Hey! Do you know if there are any alligators in the water?"


The old man laughed, shook his head, and said, "No, there ain’t been any alligators in years!" Now feeling much safer, the man then jumped into the ocean and leisurely swam to shore.

Once he reached the beach, he asked the old man, "How did you get rid of the 'gators?"

The old man replied, "We didn't get rid of nothin'! The sharks got them!"


Jim spent the day fishing at his local and favorite fishing day. Unfortunately, he did not catch any fish, so he decided to stop at the fish market on his way home.


"Please give me three of the biggest steelheads you got," requested Jim. The fishmonger gathered the fish and started wrapping them up for Jim.


Jim interrupted the fishmonger and said, "Don’t worry about packing it up. You can throw them at me!"

"What do you mean, throw them at you?" the fishmonger asked in confusion.

Jim said, "That way, I can tell my wife I caught three fish today!"



One day, two men, Tim and Larry, were out fishing on the river in their boat. A funeral service passed by on the bridge they were fishing near. Larry got up, took his hat off, and put it against his chest.

"Wow," exclaimed Tim, "I had no idea you were so respectful!"

"It's the least I can do," explained Larry, "I was married to her for 30 years."
