Brickfilms Wiki

Stranger than Fishin' is a 2010 comedy brickfilm by Zach Macias.[1][2] It follows a man who has bad luck while fishing, until he finally gets a big bite.[3]


A man arrives at a dock to begin fishing. He takes equipment from a case and attaches it to the line before casting the fishing rod. The man begins to reel in a variety of useless items, including a mug, a wrench, and, most useless of all, Dane Cook. With a huge pile of junk built up behind him, the man kicks his case into the water in frustration.

The man decides to give it one more try, and casts the rod. This time, something takes the bait and provides plenty of resistance. The man puts in great effort to reel in the catch, before pulling a shark-person, Jôhs, out of the water. The man is frightened, but Jôhs looks towards the pile of junk and is happy to find the wrench that he had previously lost.[3]
