Photo Gallery: Fishing with Ween

Most folks know about Sammy Hagar hawking tequila and Ted Nugent hosting caged hunts. But we had no idea that right in our almost-backyard of Neptune, New Jersey, one of our favorite rock guitarists, Dean Ween (a.k.a. Mickey Melchiondo), was running his own fishing boat and guide service. Mickey’s Guide Service sounded a hell of a lot cooler than a Cheeseburger in Paradise chain, so recently, Flavorwire correspondent and huge Ween fan Alex Dunbar went fishing with Ween. Take a three-hour tour with us after the jump.

Make no mistake: while Deaner still tours with Ween, he’s a serious sport fisherman, with the boat (the Archangel), gear (Shimano rods, Gulp-brand bait), and chops to prove it.
