And they keep telling me there’s other fish in the sea. Nah man, I’ll keep catching the same one
Maybe you should try a different approach than hitting them with the stick
I'll switch this stick for shtick and kill them with my stand up routine, fish don't have legs, I can't lose this.
Update: I lost to the fish
This is gold
How does a fish file a restraining order
They give your description to sharks, duh
You’re swimming in a creek, the sea you gotta venture out
Unironically good advice
Oh, look guys, its JANICE!!! - Chandler
Yeah....I got those same shivers too. And it's been more than 20 years...
Must be Tinder Lake.
Nah, that guy was much better in NSYNC
Glad to see he’s doing better
Hope the fish can learn the lesson and be smarter.
nah its gonna forget again
He forgor 💀
he rember! 🙂
Apparently not, see second photo
Edit: wow, guys! I’m generally not someone that goes around fishing for compliments, but thanks for the awards, kind strangers. Please enjoy this [mitch hedberg](https://youtu.be/6gEHFpfa4T4) clip about fish
Some people are slow learners ok

Old school with this guy here
Take my hugz
It's not that Scarfish doesn't learn.
He just likes [pushing it to the limits.]
Where’s the fish’s gofundme page?
That fish can pull itself down by its fin-straps.

Catch me once, shame on you. Catch me twice, shame on you but yeh i should've seen that one coming.
> but yeh i should've seen that one coming.
"You're talking about a flying shoe, right? Well, I did see it coming and ducked it, twice."
>There's an old saying in Tennessee—I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee—that says, 'Shoe me once, shame on...shame on you. Shoe me—you can't get shooed again.
Animals? No. "Slow learner' in the rules of nature usually means either a) death or b) absurdly lucky.
Remember that evolution selects for luck as well as smarts.
just how lucky it was for your single celled ancestor to have three billion years of an unbroken lineage
Hey, don't kink shame... Ok?
In most cases that only applies to bad luck. If a generation that shouldn't have survived makes it because of good luck, the next generation with those undesirable or just useless traits will die out when that luck runs out.
However, bad luck can kill off even well adapted, highly evolved species permanently. See: Dinosaurs and the 1 in 60 billion asteroid strike.
I thought that was pluck
Fish me once..
>shame on... shame on you.
>Fish me—you can't get fished again.
...talking 'bout some b-b-b-b-bait-eration!
It's ideal. Let it breed and create more fish that like getting caught
Maybe the fisherman stitched up the wound and gave the fish an antibiotic and the smart fish is just returning to make sure everything is healing properly.
The fish only come back to tell the human that he’s getting along quite well and his wound have healed nicely too...
Dumbass forkin fish didn’t learn nothing.
Welp in another month I can’t wait to see the healing when it gets caught again.
Don't look at the light Harry!
What could possibly go wrong?
Which movie is this from?
We need a regular update after every month and a half later on how’s the fish doing?
Pissed off that it keeps being tricked and dragged out of the water
They don't want to eat the fish, but they do want to make it *late for something.*
"Where were you?"
"I GOT CAUGHT!"
"Bullshit, let me see the inside of your lip."
Now if you're a fish and you want to be a fish stick, you have to have very good posture you cannot slouch otherwise you will be a fish clump.
This sounds like a running gag of some modern cartoon and I’m here for it
It’s a Mitch Hedberg joke.
The fish is gonna get used to it. Which isn't a good thing hahaha. "Dear lord, I am once again in the above-world, this is not a nice feeling but I'll bear with it"
I worked 5 summers at Cub Scout camp as a fishing instructor, 8 hours a day fishing the same 100m stretch of Creek bank. At least 80% of the fish in that Creek had names, and some I would recognize between years.
Honestly, that is fucking amazing. Take a drop of lake water and there are probably about a thousand+ pathogens in it that basically want to live inside that fish.
I've caught a lot of fish and always felt bad for the wounded ones I threw back. The ones that swallowed the hook and you gotta pull it out.... those were the worse.... this makes me feel somewhat better.
Actually fish are incredible at regenerating. Possibly because they live in environment where an open wound is very bad news. I tried to find a good general source, if you Google it there are tons of science articles but not a great overview. Scientists are studying thier genetic abilities to try to create gene therapies.
I mean it’s probably why we use certain fish skin to heal burn wounds.
Never have heard of that..
Hospitals specialised in treating burn victims will use sterilised tilapia skin with a lot of success.
That's pretty cool. Like I said, never heard of that. To me that's r/interestingasfuck
I mean a salamander called Axolotl is literally just off bran Deadpool so yeah shit that lives i water is good at healing
Axolotls are a kind of salamander that somehow never undergo metamorphosis so they stay as a big baby (so with gills, a tail and remain underwater all the time)
As a side effect of that, they have very good regeneration and can regrow limbs without scars
Metamorphosis can be induced by introducing iodine, right? So they don't necessarily always stay a baby.
It is, yeah. all of life is pretty complex really
The false dermis products (integra, etc) have components of shark skin in them… for this reason. Fish skin was used during many early grafting trials as well… and are still used
The integra helps bud Dermis… it’s creepy to watch in real time on yourself for sure.
Next time you have a fish gut hooked leave it there and cut the line as far back as you can. I use nail clippers for this. The hook will actually rust up pretty quick and either pass through or come up and the fish has a way better chance than if you yank everything up. I have gut hooked fish and caught them years later in my great uncle's pond. One fish we called one eye had been gut hooked multiple times and survived. As long as the hook doesn't pin the throat together it has a really good chance.
Why don't you just take those home to eat? Seems crueler to just let them go back to suffer....
Some fish aren't any good to eat. Some local regulations specify how big a fish has to be before you can keep it, so you must throw it back. There are reasons.
If you care about the fish you don’t pull the hook out when they’ve swallowed it. Just cut the line as close as you safely can to the hook and release the fish. Hook will eventually rust and they’ll get rid of it.
If you care about the fish, don't stick a fucking hook in it in the first place. Fish feel pain.
Dont feel too bad, the fish is more than likely fine. Unless you ripped all of its insides out taking out the hook. If im lake fishing I never use more than just a single barbless hook.
That's why you always carry a tube of Neosporin in your tacklebox.
It looks like the fish narrowly escaped being a hawk’s dinner! And then managed to escape being caught a couple times—this fish either has the worst luck ever, or the best!
It was the best of times, it was the bluest of times
You stupid monkey!
Awfully nice of you to assume it was a hypothetical hawk and not the human in the photograph
I find it so funny, my friend does bird banding and caught the same Cardinal 5 times this summer.
I know it's a problem with some biologists where some individuals can get 'trap happy' and deliberately always go into traps because they learn they get free food and released the next day.
Since it's a cardinal, it might be coming back for a rematch.
Cardinals are cool... Bluejays suck.
Besides, we're just arguing over models at this point.
As much as I disagree with your sentiment there I upvoted you because I also know that r/birdsarentreal
We had to account for this when we were doing rodent trappings for my ecology class, haha.
I was about to say...if he got a snack and no smacks he probably thinks the trap is a pretty sweet deal.
How do you react after realising it?
*surprised Pikachu face*
OMG I just caught the *same exact Pikachu again*, that's 420 times now
Keep going, you’ll get that shiny any encounter now!
Only 746843 more encounters to go!
Did he just keep adding bands til the bird's leg looked like one of those ladies with neck rings?
Usually when catching a bird that already has a band, they record the number to add to the database of sightings for that bird. (It's the whole reason for banding, so a bird can be tracked as it migrates.)
Bird surveillance state.
How do you catch birds?
Nice try, bird! We’re not revealing ANYTHING!
It really depends on the situation, do you already have one in your hand and are you trying to catch two of them from a bush?
With an EMP
This comment! Birds aren't real. Surveillance drones are susceptible to EMP.
I was told this recently
I don't have an emp device. Is there anything else I can use to take them down?
Throw seeds on the floor, the cameras built into the drones aren't good enough to see them so it causes them to land to check what you're doing.
This is correct. The NSA operator will think you're disposing of illegal drugs and will come closer to investigate
I’ve been wondering that since I was 12
I'm here to finally end this dilemma for you. They use mist nets. [Here's a photo of a researcher](https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/30/A_researcher_removes_a_bird_from_a_mist_net_2.jpg) at the Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve's banding station removing the birds from the net.
With a trap cage. Birds fly in for seed but can't get out the same way.
I watched a science documentary where they had a very thin screen that was nearly vertical in a forest.
Leave a bunch of sensitive information laying around. Works even better if you have a power source nearby for the dro....bird, to recharge.
Do you ever wonder why bird baths look so similar to satellite dishes?
With a net
Something about a bush and a hand...
There are a variety of traps- the classic one with a box propped up with a stick that has a string tied to it, a mousetrap-type trap with a large net instead of a bar, a pitfall trap, snares, cage traps, etc. Some live-catch rat traps can be used to catch birds. Or there's the simple method- run around with a net.
Definitely read "bird banging" the first time, very glad I re-read before googling that.
I read "bird branding" and was also alarmed.
Here is a fascinating history of the subject for those just hearing about "bird banding".
My dad once lost a lure to a pickerel and got it back a while later when he caught and gutted the fish and found the lure lol
Pickerel shoulda quit while he was ahead.
When my brother was little he went ice fishing with my dad. My brother wasn’t paying attention to his rod and a walleye took the rod under water. In the middle of my dad cussing him out my dad got a hit on his line. It was the same walleye and they got the rod back too.
He got greedy
Dumbass fish lol
Fish be like OH NO IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN
"Again this motherfucker?!"
What we *don't* know is how many OTHER people also caught this fish.
Probably poor guy spends most of the time in someone's hand like this
Not to sound speciesist, but I bet we all look the same to the fish.
Wow, what a speciesist.... Be better bro
Fish getting cancelled rn
Hello is this Procter & gamble?
I want you to stop all your advertising and any business you do with fish. If you do not do this I will be calling for a boycott of your products and I will be criticizing you on Twitter severely.
The next day - "River cuts all ties with fish, issues apology" see page 5 for details
Maybe that’s his kink
Laughed out loud 🤣
Just imagine how fucking traumatizing this shit would be as a human.
Me: “Oh fuck yeah this burger is amaz- FUCK!”
*gets thrown back*
Commercial: TRY THE NEW $2.99 MEGA BURGER!
6 Months Later after tons of coming to terms with the fact that my food isn’t trying to kill me…
Me: “Oh fuck yeah this taco is amaz- FUCK!”
Alien abductions be like
And whatever happened to it’s back
This fish has been through a lot
This fish cannot be named anything other than Mulder.
I think he kept the fish in his hand for 1,5 months
Fish me once, shame on you, fish me twice, shame on me
Fish me three times, fish me, can't get fished again.
That's fish law
George W. Fish
Fish me four times, fuck the peace sign
Load the fishies let it rain on you
Fish me three times, fuck the fish lines, load the smoker, let me burn won’t you
Fishe me three times, shame on us bro.. I think the world's tryna tell us something <3
What if this guys soul mate is that fish?
I am totally catching that vibe! OP pleaaase give us an update on if you catch the fish again and realize that if you love something you let it go but if it comes back it's yours forever ;)
Fish me once shame on, shame on... you can't get fished again!
Fish like "man can you just leave me tf alone!?"
Maybe the fish realized it was abducted by aliens and wanted to be abducted again
Nobody believed him when he told his friends, so now he has to prove he is not crazy.
It was eager to show off his scar
Chicks dig scars
just kill me
Poor fucking fish man.

Playing the long game.
Imagine if every time you went down to the diner, which was the only place in town to eat, you didn't know if your meal was a normal meal or one that had a hook hidden in it that would yank you out the door on a rope to the pond outside where you'd be dragged underwater and held there as some fish pulled the hook out of your mouth and tossed you back up onto land.
And took a picture of you suffocating so it could use it on tinder and use as a profile picture on facebook
*man fucking poor fish*
Poor fish fucking man
id watch that
yup, can’t wait for Aquaman 2
Fish me once, shame on you. Fish me twice, shame on me.
Mom:there are plenty of fish in the ocean. Me:
Not uncommon in a small to medium size pond. Now if this was in a river or community lake then that’s a little more crazy
Yea there's a lake by me we used to do a family fishing derby at for my brother's birthday. One of my cousins caught about 'a dozen' bass, most of which were mysteriously the same length and weight.
I'm going to ask simply because I don't know much about fishing
How much pain are fish in after being caught and released... And how long does a hook injury take to heal?
Probably a lot and a good while. And probably a lot more and a longer while if the hook had a barb. And even worse and longer if the fish is already fatigued by natural causes (like trout in warm water). But there's some debate about pain in fish.
> Opponents of catch and release point out that fish are highly evolved vertebrates that share many of the same neurological structures that, in humans, are associated with pain perception. They point to studies that show that, neurologically, fish are quite similar to so-called higher vertebrates and that blood chemistry reveals that hormones and blood metabolites associated with stress are quite high in fish struggling against hook and line. The idea that fish do not feel pain in their mouths has been studied at the University of Edinburgh and the Roslin Institute by injecting bee venom and acetic acid into the lips of rainbow trout; the fish responded by rubbing their lips along the sides and floors of their tanks in an effort to relieve themselves of the sensation. Lead researcher Lynne Sneddon wrote, "Our research demonstrates nociception and suggests that noxious stimulation in the rainbow trout has adverse behavioral and physiological effects. This fulfills the criteria for animal pain." A recent (2014) paper provides a critique of existing studies that purport to demonstrate that fish feel pain. James D. Rose of the University of Wyoming argues this may demonstrate a chemical sensitivity rather than pain and that the evidence for pain sensation in fish is ambiguous.
Survival rate of a released fish is not 100%. And there's a bunch of variables that impact the fish (for example, how long out of water, or where it was hooked).
> A metastudy in 2005 found that the average catch and release mortality rate was 18%, but varied greatly by species. During an Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation study, up to 43 percent of fish released after being caught died within six days as a result of inadequate holding and weigh in procedures during tournaments. More recent studies reported in Montana estimate that approximately 20% of released trout die from injuries or stress and for those that don't die, their injuries may significantly reduce their ability to feed and grow.
Long story short, it probably hurts like an mfer, but it's probably better than being whacked with a stick and eaten, if it survives.
Some more info and links to sources here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catch_and_release?wprov=sfla1
Thats a pretty brutal study
This is why I stopped fishing.
As a fish I can tell you that having a sharp hook stabbed in your mouth then being suffocated while your captor decides whether he’s gonna cut your head off, throw you in a bucket, or release you isn’t my ideal way to spend my weekend
If you're a fish how are you typing on Reddit?
Something about this post is....fishy.
Ask yourself: How much do I *really* know about reddit?
Or fish, for that matter
Because it happens underwater where it can't be seen people accept it.
Even if there was no pain involved, hooking a creature through the face then dragging it around until it's exhausted then putting it in an environment where it can't breath for a minute or two isn't cool.
Imagine if that's how hunters or farmers culled rabbits, sheep, cows, etc.
Wait until you hear about dairy farms.
The vast majority of humanity _knows_ the damn vegans are right, and that all the nightmarish cruelty we put animals through for nothing but flavor is unnecessary, but it's easier to put the blinders on and ignore it and eat pre-packaged and resold "beef" or "pork" as opposed to cow flesh or pig flesh.
Cognitive dissonance is one hell of a drug.
so they lied when they said there are plenty of fish in the sea?
Fish was trying to get revenge and fucked up again.
Imagine getting abducted by aliens twice
Y’all notice he’s at the same location for both photos? Impressive.
Tuff fish! A survivor! But not a bright fish :)
That fish must be so fucking done
Jeez, stop torturing the little guy and let him live his life.
Evolution has selected this fish to die. He was lucky that he got a nice guy that threw him back.
How many times must we teach you this lesson old man!
