Today is International Go Fishing Day! See what CFL players have reeled in!

June 18th is International Go Fishing Day, so while your favourite players are working hard to prepare for the official start to the 2015 CFL season next week, we’re going to celebrate some of their finer catches off the field.

 

Talk about a Bass Pro! Montreal Alouettes player Gabe Knapton is all about that bass…

 

 

While he’s not exactly fishing here, this golden oldie of Andrew Buckley, the Calgary Stampeders’ 2015 QB Draft Pick, shows that he may be an experienced spear-fisherman. Goggles sold separately.

 

 

If Buckley needs some help with his spear-fishing technique, he can head East to get a little help from Montreal Alouettes’ Andrew Lue!

It looks like Argos RB/SB Andre Durie caught himself a mermaid! We wonder what kind of line he used…

On her way to becoming a mermaid is Matthew Black’s little guppie, and we hear she’s a pretty big Toronto Argos fan!

  Ottawa RedBlacks Defensive Lineman Justin Philips knows how to reel ’em in! He also fishes with people that have exceptional taste in awesome shirts…    

 

CFL Vet Joe Eppele was wondering why he wasn’t catching any fish. Hey Joe, maybe you can blame your hungry friend in the green?

Former CFL RB Chad Kackert plays well with the water, and we aren’t just talkin’ Swayze! After all, Argonauts ARE boatmen…

We can neither confirm nor deny whether or not Chase Baker caught his sushi himself, but the REDBLACKS roster seem to be fans of the results of International Go Fishing Day!  

  Oh, Swayze again!
