At a big lake where recreational fishing dominates the waters, all the locals
are envious of one fisherman. They are envious because this fisherman always
brings back a bunch of fish when he goes out. He catches an armful of fish
every time, even when the fish aren't biting for anyone else. Even more
puzzling is the fact that this fisherman only takes a net and his tackle box
out in the boat with him... no poles or rods or anything. Everyone wonders
how he does it.
Well, the local game warden gets suspicious. He disguises himself and gets
the fisherman to take him out on one of his trips. Once they reach a secluded
spot on the lake, the fisherman reaches into his tackle box. He pulls out a
stick of dynamite, lights it, and tosses it into the water. BOOM!!!! Then,
slowly, the fish start to float up to the surface. The fisherman throws out
his net and starts bringing the dead fish into the boat.
The game warden is astonished and horrified. He pulls out his badge, and says
to the fisherman, "I'm the game warden, and what you are doing is illegal."
The fisherman reaches into his tackle box and pulls out another stick of
dynamite. He lights it, hands it to the game warden, and says, "Well, are you
gonna fish or are you just gonna sit there?"
