The most stupid thing ever said fishing, camping or around a fire?

60 posts in this topic

Sitting at a fire with a few friends and family and alot of Premiums. My step mom comes out of the house and say's "Can you guys turn down that fire?" NO joke without even thinking about it I say "Sure just let me look for the switch." She got mad and went back in the house while we all almost wet our pants laughing.

Seriously what kind of question is that? Its a fire they really don't come with a remote to turn them down.

Anyone else have a good one to share?

When we were on a hunting trip and having a few beers around the camp fire a couple of local ride into our campsite on their wheelers. You can tell they are pretty stoned or something but we let them pull up a lawn chair and join us. One of them passes out head tipped back towards the moon and stars. He wakes up in a while still looking straight up and says "Man look at those wheeler lights coming down the road they look far out". Then he gets up and goes over to the firewood pile and takes a nap on top of it.

First thing I thought of was "hey guys watch this........"

Best one that's ever happened to us was staying at a USFS campground and a guy came from the other end of the campground and said "do you guys think you're the only ones here?"

I know its not terribly funny on face value, but you had to be there. It was maybe 10:30pm in the middle of the summer, cars were driving through the campground and everything and this guy decided to single us out and we were being pretty tame.

One of my friends good friends who is a bit of a burn out came out last minute to camp. After some beverages he only had his car to sleep in and asked... " Will I sufficate in my car if I sleep in it with the windows shut?" haha..this is still brought up all the time. He really is the king of stupid comments/questions. One time he was being serious when we were out to eat and asked, "Do you have to be 21 to eat beer battered shrimp?" laugh

We were up on Miltona last fall doing some musky fishing. Got set-up and had a few frosty's. Then this couple walks over to our fire and the guy starts rambling on. Well his wife no more than sat down on the picknic table when she lets out one of the loudest farts i've ever heard. She ask's....."I hope you guys didnt hear that??" I about tipped over from laughing. She immidietly gets up and walks off without saying another word. Its was kind of uncomfortable because we had no clue who these people were yet funny at the same time.

A few years ago my friend who has his trailer at a seasonal site at a resort told me about his campground neighbor. The man, would go from site to site in the evenings, visit with the negihbors and would always be a little better at whatever the topic was and earned the nickname "The [PoorWordUsage]'er". His female companion had earned the nickname "The moaner" becasue of her late night vocals. One day I was talking with my friends and commented that I hadn't seen the "[PoorWordUsage]'er or the Moaner" all day. Turns out they were outside the trailer and heard me and shot me a glare and went inside. (I'm no good at whispering).

Back in the day, right out of High school 2 buddies and I took a road, fishing trip out to Yellowstone. One night we were sitting around the camp fire having a few, and out of the darkness walks this very nice looking girl with short shorts, and halter top on who just sits down and starts talking to us! Every young mans Dream! grin We all were thinking, which one of us will get lucky tonight! laugh It all started out ok as we all talked about where we were from ect, ect. Then she started getting a little weird and talking about some roommate of hers that stolen her stereo and a bunch of other stuff and that she was going to learn Witch craft so she could cast a spell on her! After all that we couldn't seem to drink up enough courage to try anything with the psycho baby, and we told her we had to turn in for the night! cry Now lets hear how you guys would have handled that when you were 18!! Short of anything that you would have gone to prison for!!

I'll claim this comment for my own. We were sitting around a campfire in high school and I was going on and on about my old Mustang. Finally I turned to one of my buddies and said, "I think the worst problem with that car is that it seems to be burning gas."

I got laughed at for months for saying that one, of course I meant to say that I was smelling a gasoline leak but the beer gremlins changed my words around.

It couldn't have been the beer. Beer always makes us really smart. I think I'm the smartest guy on the planet when I've had a few.

I have been on this site for a couple of years and I have to say beyond a doubt this is the best thread I have seen. Keep em comming and I will try to think of one of my own. The only problem is campfires and memory are sometimes two words that don't work to well together.

We had just picked up all the dog doo-doo from the yard so we could have a clean walkway out back to the fire pit and my dad said to throw it on the fire. Of course he did even with my warning not too. What a stench! He was not happy when I said I told you so. It took a couple of bonfires to get it all burned up. Had to watch the fire from inside the house.

Do you think those vines in the trees are strong enough to swing over the bonfire?

I've got a ton of good ones, but most are kinda fuzzy and wouldn't make sence......

Although this one sticks out.....

"Lets pick up that couch that Domeier (ME!) is passed out on and put it on the fire"

And

"Just a little more gas won't hurt." (Seconds before my buddy is doing the stop, drop, and roll and we are headed to the ER)

    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
    • Feiders sittin just outside the top 12. Really cool to see him doing well this year. Didnt sound like he had much luck prefishing going into the last tournament or this one but hes doin a heck of a job when it matters. Would be sweet to see him fighting for another top 12 spot on saturday!   As for my fantasy team... not so good. I was having a decent year so far (except for tharp last tourney).
    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!    
    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
