Ya, we really do.  Very casual and fun when i get him to go with me.  trouble is he's a fair weather fisherman only.
So any wind, rain, or whatever and he doesn't go.  Hehe, i bought him his fishin licenses to help guilt him into going with me more.
Whats even funnier, is the fact that pretty much all the fish he's holding are ones i caught, and he's takin off and having me take pics of them for him buddies.
They think he's KVD or something with all the pics he got!  He does catch his fair share too.

Even better is him and his buddies don't fish a lot.  On a few occasions though, we'll all fished together last yr, as the season went on.   Slowly as we'd meet up again, they'd talk about all the fish they catch, and how big they are when they were here last without us.  My brother brings a small dig. fishing scale, the next time we get together, as they kept claiming 3-6lb LMB & SMB.
As I fish out off a point, and they off a retaining wall, I watch my brother measure and weight every fish they are catching. (I caught a few estimated around and below, but nothing over the 2lb mark.) They seemed to be getting a few nice fish over there, mostly LMB, but even a nice SMB i figured made the cut.   Nope.  There's my brother, exclaiming each one to be 1-2 lbs.  I'm thinking...  man, they're that skinny here in the fall?  oh well...
Then I get a huge smallmouth, yelling for my bro to get over here, as soon as i had her in my hands.  Sweet.  Lets be quick. Hand her up over the wall to Mike, he hooks her on...   I'm waiting...    "You did it, its at 2-2-2 pounds".  I think to myself? Hubba wha? 2 1/4 lbs?  I'm holding the thing in my hands, putting her back in the water!  It's a pig!
So, I climb up the wall, ask for the scale nicely, look at for a bit...
"Hey Mike", i said kinda softly so just he can hear me, " you might wanna hit the button from kilograms over to pounds!  Just don't tell them 'til we leave, cause you been givin them crap this whole time!"   LOL
