Celebrities Go Fishing

Yahoo Celebrity

So much attention is paid to celebrities — they have whole teams to make them look and sound good — that sometimes when they’re off the clock, they simply want to commune with nature — and get their hands dirty, bloody, or both. That bring us to celebrities who enjoy fishing. While stars could go pretty much anywhere during their time out of the spotlight, some like to kick back — and get dirty. Fish guts and all.

<p>When she’s not running her fashion empire or raising her four children, Heidi Klum is launching careers on both <em>America’s Got Talent</em> and <em>Project Runway</em>. So the model loves her vacations — and fishing apparently. “Gone fishing,” Klum captioned this photo from April. She had everything she needed: a string bikini, hat, and pole.

<p>The retired soccer star loves fishing <em>and</em> showing off what he reels in on social media. Here he is in May with his “Catch of the day.” Looks like he didn’t even break a sweat.

<p>Apologies to all other fishing buddies on the planet because there is <a href="https://www.yahoo.com/celebrity/chris-pratt-son-cutest-fishing-buddies-around-210729891.html" data-ylk="slk:no way you could be cuter than these two;outcm:mb_qualified_link;_E:mb_qualified_link" class="link rapid-noclick-resp newsroom-embed-article">no way you could be cuter than these two</a>. Under the camo hats are <em>Guardians of the Galaxy</em> star Chris Pratt and his nearly 5-year-old son, Jack. “Not sure what made me more proud: When Jack insisted on holding this barracuda himself, or when he tried it raw!” wrote the actor, who is married to Anna Faris, in June. “No better way to share God’s bounty with your babies and make life long memories than fishing! Get out on the water!” (Photo: <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BV7mBk4j_Ni/?hl=en" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Chris Pratt via Instagram" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Chris Pratt via Instagram</a>) </p>

<p>It’s official: The singer can make any activity — including one that can get pretty messy — look fabulous. Here she is in 2015 kicking back on a dirty fishing boat having a drink and a smoke, and making it look fashion-photo-shoot fabulous, as only Ri-Ri can. FYI, she later ate her catch.

<p>The NYC resident, who has six kids, spends as much time as she can at her Hamptons abode — and she’s been known to drop a line or two. This photo, taken in August, was snapped by her old pal, Debi Mazar, while they were off the shores of Sag Harbor, and before the small fish was released back into the water.(Photo: <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BJYzn33DOkX/?taken-by=debimazar&hl=en" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Debi Mazar via Instagram" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Debi Mazar via Instagram</a>) </p>

<p>Perhaps Ciara and Russell Wilson knew they were a fit for each other after they went fishing together here in March 2016. While it was the songstress’s first time, she had good luck, describing it as a “proud moment.” She should be even more proud that her bathing suit remained so bright and white instead of being covered with fish guts. Seriously — what an accomplishment.

<p>Who knew fishing was such a thing with supermodels? Klossy looked liked a pro during an end-of-summer adventure in Saratoga, Wyo., last August.

<p>The “Boyfriend” singer is always on the move — whether he’s in a private plane or one of his fancy sports cars — so we wouldn’t peg him as a fisherman, but he loves the sport. In March 2016, he did some fly fishing in an incognito ensemble. <i>(Photo: </i><a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BC9qxUyAvun/" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Justin Bieber via Instagram" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Justin Bieber via Instagram</a><i>)</i> </p>

<p>All those years of living in Hawaii while shooting <i>Lost</i> must have helped develop the actor’s fishing skills. He was happy to show off a “tiger trout,” which he described as “a rare catch (and release),” in June 2016.

<p>The <i>Pretty Little Liars </i>alum was all in — with waders — during a trip to Big Sky, Mont., in March 2016. “Made a new friend named Fred yesterday! so fun,” she wrote, noting that she was also a catch-and-release kind of gal. <i>(Photo: <a href="https://www.facebook.com/OfficialShayMitchell/photos/a.129354873766272.10457.111411568893936/1017341051634312/?type=3&theater" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:Facebook" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">Facebook</a>)</i> </p>
