It's completely useless, but fishing there can also net you the [[JokeWeapon Joke Weapons]] for every party member. This results in the protagonist fishing up objects like bus stop signs, benches, a ''drill'' and '''an antique flintlock pistol'''.

* Parodied extensively in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' episode "The Deep South", when the crew goes fishing. Leela catches a boot with a ''harpoon''. Then she gets something that must be good, since it's 20 times heavier than a boot... and it's a crate containing 10 pairs of boots. She gets confident about the next one since the thing is clearly moving... and then pulls up a boot being eaten by Zoidberg. And they were fishing this at the exact center of the Atlantic Ocean.

* It can happen in the ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'' series. You can get boots, cans, and tires. It's impossible to know that they're junk ahead of time, since they look and fight back just like real fish. (No idea how or why they fight, but they do.) In ''City Folk'', some villagers may end up locked out of their houses, leaving you to fish for the key. In ''New Leaf'', you can prevent this by enacting the "Beautify Our Town" ordinance which, among other effects, keeps you from fishing up garbage. In ''New Horizon'', there's a number of DIY recipes that use the junk you fish up, making them genuinely desireable for a change; for instance, a tin can is recycled into a planter, while managing to catch two boots allows you to refurbish and wear them.
