Do you have to be straight to like fishing?

    I went on a road trip up the sierras and up to tahoe lake. Saw a lot of ruggedly handsome guys with their boats and rafts filling up gas on the way. I was thinking my Dad use to love fishing but when I was on the boat I was just thinking where is the next landing so I can pee rather than go over the boat. I remember going ocean fishing off a boat out of San Pedro. At 12 years old I was with an older neighbor who didn't help me bait up or anything. Well I caught a nurse shark. I had to bring it up myself and then I was told by a bystander that I had to stomp on its head to kill it and then throw it overboard so it doesn't eat the good fish. WTF? I was mortified but did it anyway. I think this turned me off to fishing. I can't kill things. What is the thrill you get from fishing? I can do it but sort of bores me. I'd rather be water skiing or wind sailing or scuba diving.

    No, I like fishing! I've only done it one time off of Staten Island with my pops and it was fun! Only thing was I was getting seasick after a while but the trip paid off when we got back to Jersey and cooked those suckers! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

    LOVE fishing...especially stream fishing...just keep wading from one side of the river to the other...cast out, reel in...the fish keep moving and so do I, keeps it from getting boring... Not a fan of just sitting on the shore, or sitting in a boat...

    I'm with you. It bores the fuck outta me too. Although I have to admit I've never been deepsea fishing. That looks fun.

    No, you just have to try and find out for yourself. I have a bi friend in AZ who got me into fishing, hip hop and country music... he tore down a lot of walls... anyways... you'll never know unless you try. icon_wink.gif

    depends on type of fishing for me. I like river fishing, cast and reel, keeps me doing something.

    I don't like just casting, setting pole in a holder and waiting for something to happen, or trolling in a boat, that is boring to me.

    I don't like freshwater fishing, but I love deep sea fishing. The organization that told you to stomp out a nurse shark sounds like a shitty group to fish with.

    Recipe for Successful Fishing


    Find a good place and situate yourself comfortably.

    Put a sinker on the line with no hook. Cast at will.

    Drink beer.

    Yes, you do. Gay people are incapable of enjoying fishing. Any gay guy who says he likes fishing is lying.

    I like fishing. I just won't touch the fish when I catch it. One time I caught a boob while fishing.

    I sometimes take my son out on what they call "drift boats" down here in Florida. They go a mile or so out in the ocean and then drift while people fish off of them. They have the gear on board, so all you need to do is buy a ticket. Last time we went, he kept pulling in tiny little baby sharks, less than a foot long. Of course we threw them back but damn, one day those are going to be some seriously fucking nasty sharks.


    Watch out for the Tiger or Bull Sharks. They are the most aggressive. But everyone is taught to be afraid of Great Whites. #dumb.

    Sorry, I originally read this thread as:

    "Do you have to be straight to like fisting?"
