Signing In

Fishing signs can provide some valuable information, and some can just be fun. Here's some we've come across that we thought were good enough to photograph.

Photo of a Catch Bass Here sign

Maybe they were self-serving, but the owners of this home on Oklahoma's Grand Lake set up for the 2013 Bassmaster Classic, and even had some competitors heed their message. (James Overstreet photo)

Photo of a Secret Fishing Hole sign

Fishermen are known for keeping their best spots sacred, so this sign might just be a total rouse, or they simply wanted to keep others laughing on bad fishing days. (Steve Bowman photo)

Bass Angler Parking Only sign

This sign in front of a tackle shop near Lake Okeechobee comes with a reel threat. (Steve Wright photo)

Home of Good Fishing sign

Some signs are just so impressive, and large, that they draw the eye. It might even get you to stop and fish. (Mark Stallings photo)

Our Bait Guaranteed To Die Trying sign

Old Fisherman Crossing sign

There are variations of this caution sign posted around fishing communities far and wide, and you just have to like that the experienced angler has a full stringer.  End of story hook
