Fishing at sunset

More than 50 million people in the U.S. enjoy either freshwater, saltwater, or fly-fishing — a number that continues to increase.[1]

The average angler also fishes more than once per month, with an estimated average of around 18 fishing trips per person, per year.[2]

Fishing has been around for at least 40,000 years, not just as a source of entertainment and relaxation but, of course, as a source of food. Communities grew around rivers and lakes because they provided an easy source of nutrition.[3]

Fishing team names can be funny for recreational fishing enthusiasts or more technical for those competing in serious tournaments.

Below, we’ve compiled a list of fishing team names to choose from. We also have a team name generator, or you can create your own name with our tips below the list.

How to Create a Fishing Team Name

Create a fishing team name for any age with the following tips:

  • Get inspiration from your favorite place to fish. You may want to create a fishing team name that gives homage to your team’s favorite fishing hole. Change the original name a bit or add words or descriptions to make it all your own — like “Manistee River Mavens,” “Herrington Lake Heroes,” or “Lumber River Lads.”
  • Use fishing terms and definitions. When you’re creating a unique fishing team name, it isn’t essential to use fishing or boating terminology exactly as you know it. Feel free to change up a word to make it more interesting or give it a nickname as unique and individual as your team.
  • Consider your team’s activity. Are you having a friendly contest with some buddies or entering the largest competition in your state? For high-profile activities, you’ll want to keep the standards of the event in mind. Even if the organization holding the event doesn’t set any rules regarding team names, you may want to look up team names from previous years to get an idea of what’s acceptable and the culture of the event. Humor is great, but you should usually avoid any harsh or offensive language.
  • Think about how you feel when you fish. If you are relaxed or invigorated — whatever the case may be — use that feeling to inspire your team name. You can also look up the words that come to mind in a thesaurus to find less common synonyms. For example, unceremonious is a synonym for relaxed. Pair it with the number of team members you have, and you’ve just created a team name — The Unceremonious Eight. Sometimes the more unusual a word is, the better team name it makes!
