Actor Dwayne Johnson took some time out with a rod and reel to fish and he came away with a state record fishing tale.
Johnson posted an Instagram picture from Lake Casitas, just north of Ventura, California.
The wrestler-turned-actor lamented about losing a new California bass record because “I didn’t time my hook set properly.”
But it’s all about having a little fun and relaxing on what looked like to be a great day of pontoon cruiser fishing.
The Rock Loves To Fish
In a fun 2018 article, Dwayne Johnson’s love of fishing came up.
Johnson loves to share fishing photos, posting from time to time. He talks about using “spinnerbaits” and “soft plastics.” The article even mentioned he raises bass in a pond on his farm.
He was at his Virginia farm in July, showing off the one bass that didn’t get away. At that location (because you know the Rock has many houses), he raised trout, carp, and sunfish in the pond.
Wondering if Dwayne Johnson does the catch and release method? The answer is kinda. He “eases ’em” back in the water.
He wrote on the Instagram post that “you’ll see I don’t like just tossin’ fish back in the water. Their system is already is shock and lactic acid has built up, so I ease ’em back in and help them get oxygen back in their lungs.”
On another occasion, the wrestler-turned-actor showed off a prized bass, one of many types of fish — including trout, carp, and sunfish that he’s been raising on his property for years.
Does Dwayne Johnson do the catch and release method right away? The answer is no.
He tagged the Instagram photo, saying: “I don’t like just tossin’ fish back in the water. Their system is already in shock and lactic acid has built up, so I ease ’em back in and help them get oxygen back in their lungs.”
You got to wonder if his animal-loving friends approve of the move.
In a 2019 Facebook post, he talked about his two loves, Tequila and fishing on the farm. He mentioned what stocked the pond with largemouth bass, striped bass, various sunnies, and carp.
