Man, those Florida bass must be fast if you have to go 57 mph to catch them.

The shark fishing team should study this technique carefully.

Right, tell them it was a 'steering malfunction'.

Hold ma beer...

Bass fishing: the only athletic competition that depends on elbow exercise.

The steering didn't malfunction – it was sabotaged by aliens, who then claimed "All your bass are belong to us."

Google self-driving boat? What's next?

"If you like your bass, you can keep your bass"--attributed incorrectly to Dr. Feelgool, when we believe it was a tagline used by Johnny Fever.

Wow. Was this secretly a new horizontal space launch test or something?

Hauling bass can be dangerous.

"Hold my bass, I'm gonna try something."

Wow, that's terrific bass!

Trolling speed is a little higher than when I used to fish with my grandpa.

It's all about that bass, 'bout that bass, no minnows
