    Compliments. Also tildes in some cases, not that you would know anything about that, wink, wink.

    Crabs and lobsters. Those aren't fish, they're crustaceans.

    Spouses (the internet is full of "fishing holes").

    Money (they use a lottery ticket as bait, hoping it will somehow attract their "ship").

    A job (dangle that resume).  

    Employers dangle the lure of a job (pay and perks) hoping to hook the "perfect" employee (or at least a decent one... how about one that actually shows up?)

    That looks a rough area, with all those weapons!

    I wonder how much more metal there is in the waters? Magnet fishing can retrieve only magnetic materials although most common metal objects are made of iron or steel (not all stainless steels are magnetic, either)

    Christians are meant to be fishers of men (and presumably women), not that it is very evident in most Western churches nowadays.  This post was edited by Malizz at November 24, 2022 1:02 PM MST
