It’s never a bad time to learn the fine art of fishing.

It’s never a bad time to learn the fine art of fishing. And really, who better to teach us than the master of the perfect cast, Goofy? Let’s see if we can learn a thing or two from his fishing skills in A Goofy Movie:

While en route to fishing, take the role of navigator seriously.


You don’t want to take a wrong turn (Max, you were supposed to go right).

Get in the fishing mood with the perfect playlist.


And if the entire playlist features Powerline, that’s all the better.

Two words: fishing fashion.

Hats are key for this look.

Have a positive, even goofy, attitude.

Max could use some help with this one.

Start off with some good bait.

But be careful if you’re taking it from Pete’s grill.

Try a classic warm-up before throwing your first cast.

You gotta be loose and relaxed.

Bring a camera to document your big catch of the day.

And if it happens to be a legendary creature of sorts, do not let it steal the video footage.

Have your running shoes handy.

You know, just in case.

Always bring a can of “hi dad” soup.

It’s the perfect way to cap off a great fishing day.

And above all else, complete the perfect cast.

You’ll catch a big one every time… just hopefully not as big of a catch as Bigfoot.

Goofy is an excellent angler, and you can be too! Visit to learn, plan and equip for a successful day on the water.
