Gone Fishin’ - Behind The Awkwardness

“This is the picture that Aunt Mar sent out in her Christmas cards to everyone with the words, ‘after 30 min of fishing…’ written on the back.”

    Once she got the pictures developed, she realized how lucky she was. And has spent her last dime ever since buying lottery tickets.

    Yep, Kenai river just below the Russian River confluence. That handicapped spot has long made me consider hauling in a wheelchair. The fish stack up along about a 60 meter stretch that hardly anyone fishes while it’s shoulder to shoulder for a mile each side.

  3. Robs says:

    This is SO going to be MY Christmas card this year!

  4. Stephen Hawk says:

    There is life on Mars after all.

  5. Malithion says:

    I’m not sure I get this, but okay.

    So funny! This is at the Russian River in Alaska! My boyfriend and I fish here all the time. It’s where they combat fish and are basically shoulder to shoulder so there is a small section for handicapped people. Otherwise they wouldn’t be able to fish.

  7. Anna says:

    Hey does anybody know where this is? Someone told me it’s the russian river near kenai in AK. anyone know for sure?

  8. CB says:

    YES….this picture is gold. LOL.

  9. John says:

    Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like a bunch of dead fish.

  10. jw says:

    I love this woman.

  11. Hello in NC says:

    THis is just plain awesomeness.

  12. Melistopher says:

    Looks like the one fish is begging for his life!

  13. Aunt Marney says:

    They are not regulation size fish.

  14. Glenna says:

    It looks to me like Aunt Mar had a wonderful sense of humor! WONDERFUL photo, and that she sent it as a Christmas card, that’s just way too cool of her.

  15. yokozbornak says:

    Is Mar short for Marnie?

  16. musicalfruit says:

    “Yes.. my minions, if you do my bidding I will release you! Muwahaha!”

  17. Harry says:

    I think aunt Mar has had one fish too many already. Seriously … this was her Christmas card?

  18. Kootie says:

    looks like Aunt Mar is on the sea(see)food diet…

  19. Javier says:

    Aaay caramba

  20. Vlove says:

    What does the handicap sign mean? Only handicap fish are allowed to swim there? Is that why we are not allowed to fish between the signs? Is Aunt handicapped? I have so many questions…

  21. Tom Flapwell says:

    I think she just bought a bunch of dead fish and laid them out in a pattern.

  22. carrie says:

    And those fish thought they were safe if they stayed between the signs! Ha! Way to show them Aunt Mar!! :)

  23. eileensideways says:

    the fish are looking up at grandma and thinking “LUNCH”

  24. Eddie Murphy says:

    What I want to know is who took the picture?

  25. She seems to be missing a pole. And where is the photographer standing? In the river/pond/stream/swimmin’ hole?

  26. Lori says:

    Gotta be Ohio. Am I right?

  27. So, two inches into the “no fishing” area is where all the large fish hang out. Or is it handicapped fishing only there? Should Aunt Mar have been using a wheelchair on that side of the sign the way some folks “borrow” handicapped signs to hang over their rear view mirrors in order to get the good parking spots?
    I guess we’ll never know.
    I just certainly hope that someone likes fish — because that’s a LOT of fish.

  28. Sohee says:

    “No Fishing Between Signs”… What a rebel.
    She must be really proud, putting it as a Christmas card!

  29. Kevin says:

    I think they are waiting for her to fall in.

  30. Evelyn says:

    This is so funny! It took me a moment to notice the sign. I guess breaking the rules has its benefits!

  31. Boudain says:

    Apparently the sweet spot was the “no fishing between signs” area.
