Celebrity Fishing Photos: The Good, Bad, and Ugly - 6

They make millions of dollars, drive 200 mph cars, and are addicted to staying beautiful, but at the end of the day celebrities are not that different than everyone else. For example, a handful of Hollywood stars took time out of their springs and summers to go fishing. What follows is a quick round up of good, bad, and ugly celebrity fishing excursions. The good: famous people having fun and promoting our sport. The bad: famous people not having a clue what they’re doing on the water. The ugly: famous people negatively impacting our sport. 

1) The Good: Christie Brinkley and Alexa Ray Joel

This week Christie Brinkley and her daughter Alexa Ray Joel proudly posted pics from their daylong fishing excursion off Montauk, N.Y.

Their experience marked the first time in history that female animal activists got angry at how good a celebrity looked fishing rather than the fact that the celebrity was actually fishing (Christie is 59 years old!)

2) The Good: Miranda Kerr

Victoria Secret Angel and Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr had the best attitude ever when she posted details of her April fishing trip with two-year-old son Flynn on Instagram.  Her posts included: “Fishing with Flynn! #funfamilyday,” and ''We didn't catch a thing but we certainly had fun!''

That’s right Miranda, it doesn’t matter if you catch anything.  It’s just being outside as family that matters.

3) The Hilariously Good: Harry Styles (the One Direction kid)

It’s all fun and games until somebody gets a fish hook stuck in his butt.

Then it’s hilarious. Even more so when the unlucky sap happens to be in a boy band.

One Direction’s Harry Styles got tangled in fishing line before setting a hook in his backside while fishing this summer. The event was captured on film and appears as a blooper at the end of the movie “This Is Us.”

I’d almost pay to see that.

4) The Good: Paris Hilton

Say what you want about Paris Hilton, but the girl likes to fish. The usually fashionable Hilton looked fairly plain Jane during her July fishing trip, but that’s ok with us. Her Instagram description with this photo was: “Love going fishing in Malibu. #TomBoyAtHeart.” How about some actual trophy shots next time?

5) The Bad: Carl Hiaasen

For an avid fisherman, you would think Carl Hiaasen could do better than to catch a snake while on the Missouri River this past May. And for a bestselling author you would think Carl could write a better description than “Cool bull snake on the Missouri River.”

I’ll give him a pass on the latter as it was written on Facebook. But no pass for the snake, Carl. You’re a great fisherman and you fish all the time. We’re a big fan. Post more fish pics!

6) The Bad: Sylvester Stallone

Action movie mega-star Sylvester Stallone put aside at least one afternoon while on vacation in the Mediterranean this month to teach his three daughters how to fish.

How’d they do? Well, Sly caught a jellyfish. No word on what his daughters caught.

So who looks better for their age: Sly or Christie Brinkley? Stupid question, I know.

7) The Bad: Vladimir Putin

Not only does Russian President Vladimir Putin know how to fish, he knows how to tell a good fish story. After catching a large pike in Siberia in July, the avid outdoorsman bragged about it weighing 46 pounds. Many Russians, and anyone who’s ever caught a pike before, disagreed. Haters posted online that the fish looked much, much smaller.

Those people were never heard from again.

8) The Ugly: Dwight Howard

Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard might know how to light up the court but he didn’t seem to grasp the concept of catch-and-release last June when he posed with this a very lengthy tarpon. Dwight, tarpon taste like crap — throw it back.

The 6-foot-11 all-star boasted of his catch on Instagram: “Fish bigger than all us."

9) The Ugly: Brody Jenner

For someone who makes a living under constant reality show surveillance (he’s Bruce Jenner’s son), one would think Brody Jenner would know how not to present himself and his actions in the media.

Oh wait. Maybe he wouldn’t. He’s stepsibling to all those Kardashian gals.

Regardless, Brody’s August Instagram picture of his tuna catch was…Well…His hashtag of “#successfulmission bloodydecks” pretty much sums it up.

We love that you're eating what you catch (see Jenner’s response to the photo here), but you have to respect the fish, bro. Clean it up before taking a photo.

Gayne,

Just my opinion but I think Outdoor Life should lay off Dwight Howard. I'd never heard of him before this (I don't watch basketball) but I doubt the Tarpon population is endangered by him keeping one.
Catch and release is a conservation tool not religion. I don't think a sports star who loves to fish should be publicly shamed by Outdoor Life for keeping one nice catch.

@Peteyraymond:I got that one up at Cooks Forest Area, I believe in Brookville. All I remember was we went up Rt.28 till the blinking light and made a left towards Brookville, from their on, I was following the few other guys with me. I do a lot of Bowhunting is Kilbuck Twp. (Ohio Twp. provides policing for Kilbuck now) near where the old Dixmont State Hospital used to be. Also, checked out bowhunting near the Allegheny County Airport in West Mifflin.

Officerdom, mind sharing where you got your buck? (I live in Pittsburgh and am always looking for a good place to hunt nearby!) ;-)

Cool pic with Winkler, officerdom. I also liked the nice buck in your other photo.

I just uploaded the picture of my Dad, Henry Winkler, and myself with the signed OL magazine onto my profile's photos to back up the story I just posted. Enjoy!

When Outdoor Life used to put Celebrity Sportmans Q&A's on their last page on the magazines, I remember Henry Winkler (The Fonz) was fishing on the one. It just so happened he was at a car show in Pittsburgh that weekend. I took the magazine to get signed. Everyone was getting Fonz pictures signed. When I gave him the magazine, he said he never had someone ask for something so unique before. Below his signature he put, "This is cool." I cherish that issue.
