Last summer, a friend of mine and myself were out on the Dirty Little Oar fishing in a pond I'll call "urban" because it is behind a Marshall's and a Salvation Army as well as a few other businesses. It's a nice enough place and it's heavily stocked so you almost always catch a bunch of fish but I wouldn't eat anything out of there if you paid me and there are always a ton of people out either fishing or just wading into the filthy water with their whole ghetto fam. It's an interesting place to say the least.
Anyways, we are out floating around when this bum-looking scruffy character rambles down the steep bank behind the Sal, flops down in an old wooden chair that's been there for years and starts yelling to himself. We were a good 40 yards off from the shore but we could hear him mumbling, then get to a yell then go back to mumbling whilst he fiddled with something in his lap. It was pretty entertaining. So a few minutes go by and as we're casting and not really paying attention anymore when the guy strips down, wades into the water and starts washing up. Awkward! Neither of us looked at him, but he fucking LOST IT all of a sudden. Goes from swishing around in the water to full-on screaming at us. "WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU LOOKING AT MOTHERFUCKERS?!??"
We looked at each other, looked back at the suds'd-up bum half in the water and both started DYING laughing. He then completely & totally loses it, starts screaming that he's going to come out there and shove our fishing licenses up our asses, etc... We literally started rolling laughing. Like laughing so hard you can't breathe laughing. The bum is really pissed now so he starts paddling like he's going to swim out to the boat, so we both pull up an oar and tell him to come on out and that we've got an anchor for his ass too. He made it about halfway before he realized he would have been beaten to death with oars and sent off into turtlefoodland and turned back to shore and then went back to mumbling into his lap again. We paddled away but came back later to see him passed out in the chair- probably after shooting up. So yeah, ghetto fishing can be interesting haha...
So please, use this thread to document your funniest or weirdest fishing stories that may or may not have anything to do with the actual fishing. I promise, it'll add up to some interesting reading at the very least.
