Everyone loves going out on the lake and fishing with their best buddies. Every once in awhile, though, one of your best buddies asks if their weird Uncle Stanley or Cousin Zeb can come out on the boat or hitch a ride to the lake, and you end up enduring some of the worst habits a fisherman can have. Don’t be one of the guys with those habits. These are the 15 absolute worst people to fish with, besides this guy:
15. The Over The Top Celebrator
Did you just catch a good sized bass or kick the game winning goal of the world cup? Bring it down a few notches.
14. The Guy Grossed Out By Fish
Why even go fishing? He secretly wishes to get skunked to never confront his fear.
13. The Guy Who Packs Too Much
You’ll sink the boat with your backpack, creel, tackle box, cooler, change of clothes, compass, case of drinks, fish finder, wait is that a laptop?
12. The Guy Who Doesn’t Pack Enough
Yeah sure you can borrow literally everything from me, no problem.
11. The Texter
Isn’t it great to get away from the office and the city for the day and go enjoy using snapchat, playing angry birds, and candy crush on the lake?
Bring your dog! But that’s the only animal that’s fun for fishing. Sea-lions are obviously cruel and sneaky on saltwater. And for an animal with the gift of flight, ducks do seem set on being right where I want to cast quite often.
9. The Guy With No Patience
Two casts with no luck? Better go try somewhere else!
8. The Storyteller
Nothing worse than a guy without a pole walking by to tell you about all the fish he catches in the spot you’re standing.
7. The Guy Who Wants To Keep Them All
#CatchAndRelease, especially if you’re just trying to bring a baitfish trophy back.
6. Mr. One Too Many
We all know a few beers goes great with a day on the lake, but no one wants to listen to you slur your words through a rant about your ex and then carry you home.
5. The Guy With The Excuses
There’s plenty of reasons the fish might not be biting, you forgetting to wear your lucky socks or your buddies boat being too small are not any of them.
4. Mr. Instagram
If you catch a big one or want to take a good shot of the lake, great! But if you miss a bite while you’re trying to find the right filter, it’s unforgivable.
3. The Guy With A Super Secret Spot
If you bring up your secret spot, you have to tell us where it is!
2. The Guy Who Steals Your Spot
Not much more disappointing than getting to your favorite spot and seeing someone sitting right on the most comfortable rock.
1. The Over-Exaggerator
Arguably the worst of the worst, the guy who talks about the 10 pound fish he caught once with his friend you’ve never met on a lake you can’t find on Google maps.
