Dierks Bentley Shares the Story Behind His Superstar Fishing Trip with Luke and Jason


Dierks Bentley is sharing the details of his impromptu fishing trip with superstar pals Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean last week in Florida. All three of them happened to be in the Sunshine State at the same time, so Luke organized the get-together out on the water.

Dierks tells ABC Radio, “It was fun. We went down there and hit a little spot and caught our limit of red snapper and grouper and just had a good time hanging out.”

A photograph of Jason, Luke and Dierks holding up one of the fish they caught quickly racked up more than 25,000 likes on Instagram.

Says Dierks, “I put a picture on all the social stuff, and I think the fans kinda dug seeing the three of us hanging out.”

The day on the water was a rare treat for Jason, Luke and Dierks, too.

He adds, “[It’s] good to hang out with your guys you normally don’t see unless you’re on the road or an awards show”.

So, which one of them caught the biggest fish that day? Dierks says Luke’s son, Bo, won the day, reeling in a 21-pound red snapper.

“[Bo] might take home the trophy,” Dierks says with a laugh. “He’s like seven years old, and he was killing it out there.”
