Orca's Revenge

A fishing boat left the port of Kinsale 
The rain was lashing and blowing a gale
Fishing grounds were in sight
Then they had a great fright
Along side swam a giant killer whale.

A fish pong round the boat was so smelly 
"Hold your noses "cried out Captain Kelly
Whale then bit off a chunk
Fishing boat and crew sunk
They all ended up in the whales belly.

Be Careful What You Hook

I once heard of a fisher Luciano,
  who sang bass as he played on his piano.
  Once he fished and cast his line
  by mistake hooked his behind
  since that day, when he plays he sings soprano.

A Fish Named Ben

There once swam a catfish named Ben
     hadn't eaten since who knows when
     my worm looked just right,
     Ben took a big bite.
     No one's seen Ben swim'n since then.

     Ben put up a heck of a fight
     was thrashing with all of his might
     when reeling him in,
     that fish seemed to grin,
     and spit out my worm just for spite.

     Old Ben made one heck of a meal
     couldn't help but think how he'd feel
     if he'd been the one,
     who had battled and won,
     from the opposite side of the reel.

Fishing Gone Horribly Wrong

casting out my line
to catch the favored one
only a shoe lured

The Fisherman's Catch and Release

There was once an old man from Altoona

   Who decided to cast for some tuna

      'Twas a mermaid he landed

         He sighed saying off-handed

            "How I wish I had caught her much soona!"

Oh!  How I would love to make her my bride

   But I'm old, grizzled and gray and, beside

      'Twould be my usual luck

         She'd take up with some young buck,

            So I will release her at next high tide

Offshore Fishing Adventure

So far offshore, but nothing was biting

Six-pack behind me looked so inviting

     New rod I placed on the deck

     Though it was just for a sec

‘Twas then an amberjack hit like lightning

The buoyant rod bounded over each wave

Determined, I vowed that pole I would save

     Spun my boat in fit of rage

     Against this fish, war I’d wage

An Ahab-like victory I did crave

With a gaffing hook, I retrieved the pole

To catch amberjack, I’d be on a roll

     Barracuda caught it first

     Fell overboard, then submersed 

The ‘cuda eyed me as his dessert goal

Fishing Buy the Pound

Finn and Mcgee
went fishing once more
With the money they saved up all year

They rented a cabin 
up by the lake
And filled it with fish bate and beer

For two weeks of fishing
They made it their mission 
To wake up and start at first light

With poles in their hands
They hardly could wait
For a big fish to come up and bit

Day after day
They fished and they fished
but barely got even a nibble

Then on the last day
McGee caught a trout
That apparently wasn't so fickle

Now on the way Home
Finn said " McGee
You Know what this fish, has cost you----

---A thousand Quid"
"Well Finn, if it did
Then I glad I didn't catch two"

A Fishy Comparison

I can’t understand the ambition
Of people who love to go fishin’.
   Outsmarting your dinner
   Might say you’re a winner,
But what when you fail in that mission?

A Fishing Trip

I love fishing in the deep blue sea,
but that fishing sure cost a lot to me.
First you have to gas up the car,
sometimes you have to go far.
Of course you have to stop for breakfast for two,
it cost $34.50 what can you do.
Then we need to rent a boat,
I hope this one really floats.
And then you need bait and such,
boy it really cost too much.
Finally we are out in the bay,
we fish in the sun all day.
We return home burned, broken and well done,
I guess we even had some fun.
However no fish were caught this day,
so pizza for dinner, it's OK.

The Fishing Trip

I thought lets go fishing
fancying a fish pie
or maybe fish and chips
that would do the trick

I set off, rod and bucket
full of worms in my hands
found a good spot to fish
by the rocks on the beach

Patiently I waited for a bite
then my rod dipped and bucked
soon I had four nice whoppers
flapping around in my bucket

Needing to answer call of nature
I slipped in between the trees
alas when I returned I found
one happy pelican looking full

An empty bucket he'd scoffed the lot
I sighed as I chucked a stone
it missed him by a country mile
no fish for supper I had no more worms

What Irony - a Real Fisherman's Tale

He wanted to go and catch scallops gets into a boat called a shallops* He didn’t look at the time And had committed a crime It’s into the court he now gallops Five thousand pounds he’s now got to pay A ‘timely’ error on the said day This ‘scallop advisor’ Just should have been wiser This fishy story won’t go away! Poem based rather ironically on a TRUE story in the Manx press today *a little poetic licence about his boat but a Shallops is a sailing boat used for coastal fishing 15th January 2018

Fishing Or Not

I went a fishin in the neighborhood pond
Just when I cast it in I had to suddenly abscond
I didn’t think it was wrong 
But the pond wore a thong
I was chased by the husband of Gertrude the blond

The Sport of Fishing

They say that fishing is a sport,
but who wants to compete with a fish?
These small, slimy swimmers
often end up as someone's main dish.
The fish's pea sized brain
is usually fooled by store bought bait.
The only problem for the fisherman
is how long his patience must wait.
A fishing rod and decorated hook
lures the brainless victim to its death.
After its fins slap the human skin,
the fisherman brags with every breath.
A cold blooded fish's defeat
means little on the scoreboard of life.
If fishing is meant to be a sport,
why are the losers chopped up with a knife?

My nails grow longer in the heat,
I like to keep them short, hands and feet,
pedicure and manicure by the girls in Phuket,
they give you more, full service and yet . . . .

I don't need my shoulders or head massaged,
there's a slap on the back as their fingers emerged,
nothing too intimate otherwise I might get ********,
the personal service should be my selection.

Now there's a mask on my face, an extra they say,
don't worry, it's free, you won't have to pay,
I'm not too keen on cucumber, peer over the edge,
shouldn't be so fussy, after all it's a privilege.

I walk out of the shop, spent my last Thai coin,
can't help but notice - there's a swelling in my groin.

The Whooper

The whooper
I went fishing the other day.Caught a fish that I was surprised.
The fish was a least six inches long. 
I took my fish and went to the market to look for beer.
Their I told, the butcher I caught a fish.
That was 12 inches long.
On the way to my house I saw a cop friend of mine.
I told him that i had a fish that was 18 inches long.
I stopped for a few beers at the bar I saw joey the postman.
I told joey that i had a whopper of a fish that was 
Two feet long

Gone Fishing

There's a fellow named Robert O'Toole.
He's the principal down at the school.
He cut classes today,
So the gossips all say.
Went fishing for bass in the car pool.

Fishing With Respect

Two friends near a bridge start to fish
Catching whoppers is so their wish
For a meal is to be sought
So no fish need to be bought
Like a hunter hunts for his dish

Just as they are about to cast
A funeral procession drives past
A fisher takes of his cap
This most respectful of chap
The thoughts of man in contrast

After the pause reverberates cheers
A beauty caught, bring out the beers
Hey Dave, what I've just seen
Shows fishers are never mean
Well we were married for nearly 20 years

* From a joke to a Limerick *

Catch of the Day

A merman once jumped o’er my rail,
And we shared four gallons of ale!
I don’t kiss and tell
But my panties fell
And that was my best piece of tail!

Typically Luke Poem 1 - Fishing

This is the first in a series of poems about my cheeky grandson, Luke
Luke decided to go fishing On a warm spring like day With a huge net on a poll And an old jam jar he found on the way He didn't catch any fish But got some frog spawn in the jar Off home he wandered quite happily He didn't have to go all that far Later that night he felt hungry Eyed the frog spawn with glee "That looks just like jelly, I wonder what it tastes like" thought he Now I am afraid to say he did eat it It would have made him ill you'd have thought But it didn't do any harm at all Though he did get a frog in his throat.
