A bad day fishing beats a good day at work

I managed to get the week off work and made plans with my old man to fish our local harbor today. Even though everything seemed right we just couldn't take a trick and the day ended with a quick run back to the boat ramp to beat one of the tropical storms we get. The fishing was slow and even though we caught a few fish they were all very small. Sometimes fishing is like that though and the uncertainty and challenge is what makes it fun.

Most anglers have heard the saying a bad day fishing beats a good day at work, but what I want to know is if you stand by this saying or not? Please leave a comment.

In my case, I never have a good day at work! So a bad day's fishing is great. You're right when you say 'fishing is like that though'. Sometimes I am pretty mad after a bad days fishing, but when i'm at work & think about being out in a boat or sitting on some rocks somewhere peaceful, it does not matter what it's like hahaha!

Thanks for the comment. I agree with you that works puts fishing back into perspective!

Of course a fishing day will always beat a day at work, as long as you pick the right fishing partner ;)

Any day fishing beats a day at work. On a bad day of fishing at least you get to experience the outdoors, maybe have a few beers and laughs with friends.
