Storyline

Goofy goes fishing in a rowing boat without a rod, just a net and live bait, namely Wilbur, a tame grasshopper, who actively lures fish to be caught at approach of the boat. The insect's life repeatedly depends on ever-unreliable Goofy saving brave Wilbur when he gets tricked in turn and is eaten by a fish, a frog and even that frog in turn by a stork, requiring some quirky chasing on goofy rescue mission...
