Thought this might be kinda fun...

Everybody add their own..


You know you are hooked on fishing when:

Your home page is set to "www.fishsniffer.com"....
(and you check the message boards more than once a day?)

You don't mind the smell of stink bait.....

You spend more money on your boat than your car....

Your idea of a "night out" with your wife involves putting bait on hooks...

You drive 10 hours (each way) to "see your parents" and you spend more time fishing than visiting... (I do this!)

You drive 10 hours (each way) to "see you parents" and you fish so much that you somehow never find the time to see them at all.. (I did this, once!) :-[

All of your vacation plans somehow involve fishing in some way...

You know you're hooked on fishing when:

.. you wake up at 3:00am for a glass of milk and a brownie and the next thing you know you're sitting at the computer reading the Fish Sniffer Forum. :P

.. when your wife walks up to you on the computer at 4:00am in the morning and looks at you like you're crazy. ::)

You reply to stuff like this... :o

Your idea of spending time with the kids is sturgeon fishing for 2 days.. 8)

When the wife asks you to cut the grass and you tell her your busy playing with your rods... :o

When the wife asks you to take out the garbage and you have to go through the garage to make sure all your gear is still in the safe place you put it last time..

When you meet strangers and the fisrt words out of your mouth are..DO you fish? ..If he says yes then you greet them if no you just shrug... :-/

When you sit in front of this thing more then you do the TV... :D


When everytime you drive past any body of water and almost kill 2 familys looking for a place you might fish... :-[

your hooked: when you talk to complete strangers at Fishing Dept at Wal-Mart,Sportsmart etc. and asked them if they are a member at this Forum.

your hooked: when you go out to the yard with a flashlight after the rain and pick up nightcrawlers. my neighbors thinks i'm crazy.

your hooked: when you have a 100gallons aquarium or bigger and you just have to test the action on that new lure. "I've done it Once.

YOU REMEMBER YOUR FISHN BUDDIES NAME BUT NOT YOUR WIFES.... ::)

YOU WONDER IF WHAT YOUR EATTING FOR DINNER WOULD MAKE GOOD FISH BAIT ???

WHILE ENJOYING AN INTIMATE EVENING WITH THE MRS. YOUR THINKING ABOUT SUNDAYS FISHING TRIP.. :o

WHEN YOU GET STUCK GOING TO THE CRAFT STORE WITH THE WIFE AND YOU LOOK FOR THINGS TO MAKE LURES OUT OF.

WHEN THE GUY AT THE WALMART SPORTING GOODS COUNTER KNOWS YOUR NAME

WHEN YOU SPEND MORE TIME TAKING CARE OF YOUR TACKLE BOX THAN YOU DO YOUR CAR

WHEN ALL OF YOUR FAMILY PICTURES INVOLVE A FISHING TRIP (BUT YOUR FAMILY ISN'T IN THEM ONLY YOUR FISHING BUDDIES)

WHEN YOU RINSE YOUR MOUTH OUT WITH BEER WHILE BRUSHING YOUR TEETH AFTER A NIGHT OF FISHING ALONG THE RIVER.

AND THE BEST FOR LAST
WHEN YOUR WIFE WANTS A DIVORCE AND YOU TELL HER THAT SHE CAN HAVE EVERYTHING INCLUDING YOUR TOOLS JUST NOT YOUR BOAT AND FISHING GEAR.

You know you are hooked on fishing when:

You wait for your wife to go to sleep, then sneak out to a slough and fish until 4 AM (last night!!)

You slow down as you drive over every bridge to see if anybody is fishing near it..

Your idea of a "Sunday Drive" is to check out potential fishing holes...

You wake up in the morning so tired that you cannot remember all the neat things to add to this thread cuz you stayed out all night fishing <yawn> (Had some good ones, too! Darn it... :'()

You use and understand wierd terms like, "lunker, shaker, slab, etc."

When somebody mentions "Shakespeare" you think of your favorite rod rather than the author of "Romeo and Juliet"

You know that an "Ugly Stick" is NOT necessarily something that some unfortunate people got beat with when they were young.

You pick up things and put them on your hook that you would not have even thought about touching when you were a kid...

You are asked to wash your "fishing clothes" in a seperate load to prevent "contaminating" other clothing...

Keep it up guys, this thread has me laughing out loud!!

You tell your fiancee that opening weekend would not be a good day for a wedding...

Reno_Flytyer
03-23-2004, 01:41 PM
You know you're hooked when you look at road kill as potential tying materials.

You know you're hooked when you look at bugs up close & imagine ways to tie feathers and wire to imitate them.

You scoop up bugs from the water just to watch them crawl around on your tube.

You look at bodies of water just to see if any fish are rising.

You give up golf to start fishing figuring it'd save money & well, you know the rest of that tune.

You sit in church and wonder if you could cast a fly as far away as the priest is standing.

You startle yourself awake setting the hook on another trout.

You catch fish just for the fun of it and then let 'em go.

You only tell your wife you're fishing one fourth of the time because the truth would be unbelievable...and you'd never get out as much as you need to.

You ask your hunter friends to keep feathers and skins.

And so on, and so on.

"You sit in church and wonder if you could cast a fly as far away as the priest is standing. "

This is by far one of the best so far!! LM*O

fishinduo
03-23-2004, 09:02 PM

youre hooked: when you rent a Cabelas Bass Tournament Game for X-Box and it cost you more money on late fee's rather than buying the darn thing. (Wasn't my Fault)

youre hooked: when you seen all the products on each and every page on Cabelas or Bass Pro Shop's big book more than six times a day. (did it last night)

Your sons kindergarten teacher calls to ask how he is feeling cause he has missed school and He walks in on the conversation yelling are we gonna go again tomarrow and the teacher says "he better not miss anymore days" :-/

Now before I get hate mail my wife is a school teacher and we spend lots of time with him on school work and he is the futhest along in his class so I reward him by letting him go out with me during the week well I use to i guess there is requirement on days attended to get passed up to the next grade?

I can't wait until my son is old enough to take with me fishing (he is only 10 months). My dad took me fishing once, I think I was five or so and since then I was hooked. Unfortunatly he passed away just after my seventh birthday :'(. But I still think of him everytime I go out fishing, so remember the time that you do spend with your children no matter how old they are, they will remember and always thank you for teaching them this great sport. Plus with all of these computers and fancy gaming systems most kids don't know what the outdoors are anymore :-[

Hey can one the fine ladies in this forum please talk to my wife about fishing, she hates it and never likes going, but then the next thing I know is I am sleeping on the couch for not inviting her on the fishing trip ???. Delli lucked out his girl likes to fish and only complains because he has more tackle that she does, but both of our wifes agreed that if we all go camping the men are not allowed to go fishing :(, so instead Delli and I are planning some guy trips only. ;)

I'm sure MrsDuo would be glad to talk to her..
BUT if your wifey is anything like my ex-wife... good luck!
Becky is VERY personable (except at work!) and I'm certain that your wifey would enjoy being around her. We can both be quite amusing at times...
I'm sure MrsDou will read this and respond.

Yea, fish4me you should try to talk her into coming to our little get together this weekend. I'm only mean and demanding at work (I work at a truck equipment distributor) ;D ;D Maybe your wife and Dellifish's wife can come up for a few hours to see what this is about and eat with us? I'm not quite as hooked as my other half, but I have been fishing since I was a little girl with my dad. There are other things she can be doing while sitting with you when you are fishing (reading, crossword puzzles, knitting, etc). I find just spending time alone with Rich is fun even if we aren't catching any fish. Well enough about that, just see if you can get her out for aleast a little while, she might find out it's not so bad. ;D

I'd like to apologize. It was remiss of me to post that which I did. I wanted to indicate that it was great the fervor with which Becky takes to fishing. It is refreshing to see.

We all know what you meant I think Delli was giving you a bad time, WD-40 topic has been the stickiest one yet.

You know you are hooked on fishin when you can't wait for the next Catfishin Forum fishing trip and are already getting your gear ready and trying to find the stinkest bait yet. ;)

You know you are hooked on fishin when your wife takes you out on your birthday and catches 14 fish to your 3 (did I just say that my wife out fished me???) and you are happy that you got your butt kicked by your wife, maybe she wants to go again (note to self when setting her pole up next trip use the old rusty & dull hooks) :o

fishn4me my wife usually out fishes me also but theres a good reason for that, I usually do all the work, rigging , baiting ,removing all the fish, all she wants to do is the fun part of catching the fish which is ok because I have just as much fun watching her cath fish as I do catching them myself.

This thread is kickin' my a$$! ;D ;D ;D

You know your hooked when...

...You comute 1.5hrs. one way to work just so you can live within 20min. of 5 very fishable bodies of water.

...The people at work that you don't know very well refer to you as "the fish guy".

...You convince your wife that planning to have a baby durring late fall would be the best time (so it doesn't interupt trout season ;)).

... You have different lakes as your wallpaper items on your work computers and can tell people the exact depth of any point on those lakes, if they just point and ask.

... You spend more time reading and writing on this site while at work then you actually spend working.

... Instead of pictures of your wife on your desk, you have pictures of you holding fish.

I could keep going and going and going!

your hooked on fishing when...

most of the favorites on your work computer are fishing sites

the phone rings, your wife answers and says it's for you, it's Dodger or Trolling Joe, something like that, and she doesn't smile about it anymore.

You pull up outside of Dodgers house to pick him up at 4:30AM to go fishing and blast your horn, heck isn't everybody up at this hour?

you wait until your wife is out of the house to go play with your tackle so she doesn't think your obsessed

all your mail order tackle comes to you at your work address

the night before the kokanee derby you pull into the marina at 2:00AM park and sleep so you can get launched on time.

you come up from the basement at 1:00AM and crawl into bed and your wife says from her pillow, "did you have fun fondling your lures"

For this I hope there is no cure, amen

You know your hooked when...

... You get out of bed @ 7:00am to see your wife off to work. As soon as she's out of sight of the house you hook up to the boat and head to the lake. You then fish for 6-8hrs. and head home to get ready for a 12hr. night shift. Once you get to work you spend 11.5hrs. on this website. Then, you head home, hook back up to the boat and hit the water for another 6-8hrs... Finally, you decide you need to sleep! But when you get home the first thing you do is get on this site and post a fishing report and catch up on what you missed.

I do that waaaaay too much!

when Santa wakes you up in the middle of the night and you look at him and think "I should go on the sniffer."

When you take the poles off the car after a saltwater fishing trip and think I should wash them off. while you are doing it you look at the car and think man its dirty, and keep cleaning the poles. then I was thinking I need to fix the leaky trany hose on the car....look at the poles and go well maybe tomorrow I need to get some 80# test line on this pole first.
