Fishing Dispute Leads to “Battery By Bass” !

For those of you who are newcomers to Dumbass News, you may not know that I am a fisherman and a damn good one, too. Fish.Fear.Me. So, when a story is Dumbass News- worthy, I jump on that sucker like a duck on a June bug. And guess what? I found a fishing story that is Dumbass News-worthy!

In the winter, many residents of the northern half of the country don’t let frozen streams and lakes deter them from getting in a little fishing. They just get an auger and drill a hole into the iced up body of water, drop a line in that sucker and get after it.  Such is the case of a woman and two men who were recently ice fishing.

One of the Cardinal sins of fishing is to not invade another fisherman’s space by fishing in the immediate area he is fishing in or to fish too closely to him. It’s just common courtesy, but if that rule is broken, it could led to unpleasant  consequences like a shouting match, fisticuffs or worse. Like being assaulted with a trout. What???!!!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, if you fish too close to another fisherman, he/she just might slap you upside the head with a fish. Fishermen are a serious bunch about their fishing hole being intruded upon.

For example, a lady in Michigan was ice fishing when she felt her fishing hole was intruded upon by two men. This is where the dumbassery begins.

The lady walked over to the men and asked them to turn their heads while she tinkled on the ice. When ya gotta go, ya gotta go and when you’re fishing, the world is your outhouse. Not that I would personally know these things <coughbullshitcough>, but when Nature calls, you’ve got to do something.

But, I digress.

  1. That’s the gospel according to the Almighty Fisherman fer sure!! One of the first commandments you learn!! The ex was a die hard Eat.Sleep.Fish! I saw my share of “if I can cast my carolina-rigged-watermelon-lizard on the deck of yo Skeeter yo to damn close” episodes. Not pretty!! They’re serious as hell!! Lol

        The other commandment I hated…….you ride in my boat we share…everything!! Expenses and WINNINGS!! That commandment took a hunk atta my behind…..short story……ex won a boat….refused to sell it…..wanted to “buy” out his fishing partner that day……$20k……WTH?? I was one pissed off blonde……when I found out what he did (which we won’t go into)……there were some new laws laid down that day…..laws according to Jeri!!! 😳


  2. Best laugh of the day! Perfect title and story
    Having grown up with fishermen, that “ownership” of spot is real….even in the National Park lakes during vacations. Not to be taken lightly
