Bragging Fisherman Skit
By: GSLC Posted On: 2019-12-14

CAST:
6 Cub Scouts

PROPS:
Stools (for fishermen to sit on)
Fishing poles

SETTING:
6 fishermen sitting on stools by a lake, hanging their poles in the water. Heads
droop until it’s time for them to speak their line.

1st Fisherman:
Not bad for a day.

2nd Fisherman:
Not bad. When we lived in Texas, we caught them as big as eight inches.

1st Fisherman:
8 inches? Why I’ve caught them over 20 inches long right here in this very
pond.

2nd Fisherman:
Who’s talking long? In Texas, we measure ‘em between the eyes.

3rd Fisherman:
Any luck, Zeb?

4th Fisherman:
Yup, I caught me a 65-pound cat, but I decided not to keep him. How
‘bout you?

3rd Fisherman:
Nope. But I did fish out a lantern I lost 5 years ago. And it was still burning.

4th Fisherman:
Aw right. Maybe my fish weren’t no 65 pounder. I’ll knock off 30 pounds
if you’ll blow out the light in the lantern.

5th Fisherman:
No, seriously, how is the
fishing in Texas?

6th Fisherman:
Not too good. Fished all day
and only caught one fish and he was too small to keep.
Luckily for me, two men came along in a truck and
helped me throw him back.
