Cartoon Summary:


A heftier Porky merrily strolls towards a motorboat to go fishing. Along the route, he picks up two worms, one impersonating Mae West, for bait. He forgets to untie the boat, and when the rope snaps, he loses control of the boat. Finally, he slams on the brakes and stops his careening. While fishing, he falls asleep and dreams that he falls prey to the bait of a doughnut and is reeled in by a fish. The fish prepares him for dinner, but he escapes from the oven and wakes up from his tall fish tale.
