I caught a fish in my dream…what could it mean?

I’ve been on a sabbatical for the past few weeks so I’ve been enjoying a lot of rest, meditation and time with friends and family.   Last night was the first time I had a dream that I vividly remember.   This morning as I was enjoying my breakfast protein shake I recalled these details:

I was in what looked like a church or theater with Tony (my hubby)  and some friends and we were goofing off and playing around as usual.   Someone either dared me or issued me a challenge to go out to a nearby pond and catch a fish…and so I did!   Now mind you I’ve gone fishing maybe twice in my entire life.   Once in 1983 when I was a girl scout and once with TJ about 2 years ago.

Anyway, in the dream, I wasn’t out there more than 5 minutes before I caught a fish!   From a distance it looked huge!   But as a reeled it in, it was no bigger than about 4 or 5 inches.   In fact, it kinda looked like Nemo.

So I looked up the meaning of catching fish when I woke up this morning and here’s what I found:


The fish is a very powerful and positive image in many world traditions.

1. To the Babylonians, Phoenicians, and Assyrians, it was honored as a symbol of fertility.

2. In Native American tradition, the fish is a symbol for mystical secrets, for it can swim to the deepest regions of the ocean and explore its hidden knowledge.

3. In British lore, it was believed that eating fish before lovemaking could enable a couple to conceive a child.

4. The early Christians used the fish as the symbol for the Christ Consciousness. It was widely believed that this symbol resulted from the Greek acronym for \”Jesus Christ, Son of God.\” But there is also the fact that the coming of Jesus ushered in the Age of Pisces the Fish, which encapsulates the mysticism, love, and happiness to which all world traditions ascribe to the fish.

5. In Scandinavia, fish was considered an aphrodisiac, and was popularly consumed on Friday, the feast day of Freya, Goddess of Love – and in her honor Friday was a day dedicated to lovemaking.

There are, therefore, many possibilities if you dream of a fish – all good, even if the fish was a greatly feared one like the shark. If there is a possibility of a pregnancy, dreaming of a fish could mean that a child is on the way, and the pregnancy and birth will be uneventful and result in a healthy baby. If the dreamer is in love but is not yet sure about the beloved’s feelings, dreaming of a fish strongly indicates that the feelings are indeed reciprocated. Dreaming of catching fish, either with a pole or with a net, indicates success and prosperity ahead. Seeing fish swimming in a clear pool indicates that a number of secrets about yourself and the world around you are going to suddenly become clearer.

Whoa…that explains a lot…including why we have fish frys on Friday nights!!

I’ve also been reading my bible and meditating and praying a lot lately.   This is exciting!!   I can’t wait to see what’s to come.  

Have you ever dreamed about fish?   Did your dream come true?   Leave your comments here.

  3. I dreamed of catching a fish and sure enough I found out I was pregnant and also had an uneventful pregnancy with a healthy baby!!!!

  4. JOanna says:

    I dreamt of catching a big fish while trying for a baby am still not sure what it means I hope it means am prego

  5. Beth says:

    I was just looking up the meaning and found this site. Last night I dreamed that my son, my husband, and myself were fishing, I was mainly watching. My husband’s reel got snagged on a log. My son caught a beatiful, big fish, and we wanted to take a picture, but had not brought a camera. Hope that is something good. Maybe son will have success, but (referring to the camera) I will not see it?

  6. Abdul kargbo says:

    Dreamt last night I catch a lots of fish with just one hook hugs fishes different kinds.

  7. Mimi says:

    I have been dreaming of catching large to small fish all week, I find this very unusual to have a dream about fishing and catching fish for a week. But since i do enjoy this activity outside with my family and friends, I do enjoy it more in my dreams. In my dreams the water is always clear and blue and the scenery is always pleasant and beautiful and my fish are always healthy, vibrant in color and strong. I do know that fish in any dream represents God and I always think back about the story in the bible of how he took five loaves of bread and two fish and feed many. So in my dream I either catch one large one with two -three small one’s or maybe just one. But it makes me smile each time because I know I’m growing closer to God either way.

  8. I found out I was pregnant and the next two nights I had dreams if fishing with my brother that passed away about a year ago. Was very emotional. I’m praying for a healthy baby. I’ve had two previous miscarriages and not been successful in giving birth.


  9. Rebecca Wyatt says:

    I keep having dreams that I’m fishing. The first dream was me fishing in a toilet and I caught two fish in the toilet, a big blue fish and a small pink beta fish. I am 11 weeks pregnant. Does anyone think the dream means I will have twins?? Twins do run in both sides of my family and on my husband dads side of the family.

  10. Rhulani says:

    I have always caught the biggest fishes and more than any person I have ever fished with, but in reality it hardly happens. Most if the time it would be in the most scariest places or unclean waters but I have always caught big ones there. My conscious somehow tells me it’s God’s call to win souls. Those scary or unclean waters feels like I should be rescuing people from unpleasant situations. not so sure though, may God guide me

  11. Jacinta says:

    I dreamt of fish last night, d more I caught d more big it become, I pray God will bring it 2perfection without hindrance in Jesus name, Amen.

  12. Rogerio says:

    This is the second time I dream about fishing.
    First time around it gone woth the rode, I coul see as it goes away.
    Second time, I could fill it and my friend saying, it’s going to snap, but I never gave up, slowly I brought to surface, but before it came out, what i looked a big fish, I was woken.
    Very curious now of the next dream.
    I’m at the point in my life to decide of having a baby with my wife, also to decide of do what we really like to do full time, travel + walk + photography + cook + blog = satisfaction

  13. John says:

    Ive had a bad breakup with my ex over a months ago. I am going the 60 day no contact rule to work on myself. She on the other hand has not contacted me either. I had a dream of catching and reeling in a big blue and black fish from the ocean with no effort whatsoever. The line about she writes “If the dreamer is in love but is not yet sure about the beloved’s feelings, dreaming of a fish strongly indicates that the feelings are indeed reciprocated.”
    How do you get this information??
    Thank you

  20. Scary says:

    I was at a green river but you could see through the water on some spots. The water was running and where I was standing was on a small dam and near the bank. Fighting to real in a beast but when it came up it was a brownish silverish color bass 4-5 inches.I put my thumb in his mouth to pull out the hook, he made eye contact the hook was lodge right next to his left eye. I looked inside the fish…it was all black inside. A feeling of fear took over and I threw him back in before removing hook. Before I remember to finished removing the hook. Then I woke.what does it mean???

  21. Fallenpink says:

    Monday night my husband told me he dreamed nice healthy fishes in nice clear water, and last night I dreamed that I was in a nice pond and the water was clear blue and that I caught a fish with my hands and right away hold it tight against my stomach so it wouldn’t flop away… What can this mean? Maybe pregnant?

  22. SCOAN MINISTRY says:

    In 2 Kings 5:14, God used the medium of a dirty river to heal Namaan.
    In Acts 2:1-2, God expressed Himself through the medium of sound at the time of Pentecost
    In 1 Samuel 17:49, God used David’s catapult to defeat the giant Goliath.
    In John 9:6-7, Jesus used mud and saliva to heal a blind man.
    In Acts 5:15-16, God used the medium of Peter’s shadow to heal the sick.
    One of the mediums He is using in The SCOAN is the Morning Water. According to T.B. Joshua, “By using the Morning Water, you are symbolically setting yourself apart for Jesus Christ’s special attention as you pray in faith. I mean, you are positioned for mercy, favour, healing, deliverance, blessing, prosperity and fruitfulness. It is not the Morning Water that heals the sick but Jesus Christ Himself. There must be faith both in the person praying and in the person being prayed for. Prayer must proceed from and be accompanied with a lively faith. It is this that brings about the healing, not the Morning Water.”
    Please note – Currently the Morning Water is being sent out to foreigners freely . It is only available in The SCOAN HQ in Lagos and in our international branches. to order for it, contact : SCOANMINISTRYNIGERIA@YAHOO.COM

    My name is Anna Gilligan from USA and i have a very good testimony to share because the light Of the almighty has shone on me. It all started in the year 2004,on the 8th of august 2004 when my husband whom i have been married to for 10 years started acting up.He stopped caring about me and the kids because i had just girls for him:three girls.He always said he wanted a son and every time i tried it didn’t work.I was so confused and didn’t know what to do because i was loosing my husband and my marriage.What broke my heart most was the fact that my husband was seeing another woman named Marian,i found this out myself and even confronted him about it and he admitted to it saying he’s been seeing her for two years now.On the 5th of November 2004 my husband filed for a divorce and left me and the kids alone.I was heartbroken and devastated for a very long time,a whole year to be specific almost going to two years.On one fateful day my long time friend Caroline came back to the country,we met and talked and i told her about all that has happened.She shared her own story with me and told me how it was solved because she went through something similar.She confided in me and told me about the pastor TBJ who helped her out by casting a spell that made her husband come back to her.I never believed her because i felt it was a coincidence till she gave the email and contact of pastor TBJ church and then i contacted him via email.I told him everything and he said to me my daughter all will be well.He asked me to do certain things and i obeyed and he told me that within 4 days i will have my husband back and i will be able to have a male child.I thanked him and hoped and even almost forgot about everything till behold a number called and it was David my husband saying he wanted coming back home to us.I was shocked and cried and immediately i contacted pastor TBJ and he said to me Be happy with your family,nothing will go wrong again. God is faithful Today i am with my husband and i have a male child too and we are all happy together.I am a living testimony to this and i want my fellow women who have similar issues to please contact pastor TBJ and save their marriage because Love is real and it is not easy to raise kids alone.Thank you pastor TBJ,thank you.This is his email scoanministrynigeria@yahoo.com.

  25. Jessi Dominguez says:

    I had a dream similar to this I was on a dock and I had a fishing pole and I tossed it out to the water. In less than ten seconds it pulled, violently. I had to bend my knees to keep my balance it was about to throw over the dock. I had to put extra force and I regained my balance and pulled it closer. I could see the silhouette of the fish and it looked huge! Like human size and I was so exited as I was pulling it closer and closer. The fish didn’t tug back it had surrenderd. When I pulled it out it was light orange and about 10inches long. I was disapointed but amazed at how that little creature tugged with such force.

  26. [...] I caught a fish in my dream…what could it mean? « … – If there is a possibility of a pregnancy, dreaming of a fish could mean that a child is on the way, … i had a dream that i am catching fish with my friends. [...]

  27. precious nosa says:

    I dreamt of myself and a friend going to the beach to catch some fish with a net. Well this morning when I woke up I prayed ro God concerning it, and in less than 3hours time I recieved a call from my inlaw in the Netherlands asking me to send my account number and in less than 30minutes he wired a hansome sum of money ro me. Out of curiosity I just felt I should check if there’s any significance tto my fish catching dream, and I found this. How reassuring.

  28. Oxford Moron says:

    I had an extraordinary dream of swimming alongside a small fishing boat in the ocean on a warm day, while dolphins surrounded me encouraging me to write a song with them. I sang as the dolphins co-created the melody with their dolphin sounds. The song was orderly and more beautiful than any I had ever written while awake. I could remember some of the lyrics to the song after I awoke. I wrote them down and now years later misplaced them. It was one of my top 5 dreams of my lifetime…and I dream vividly, creatively and of course humorously in many cases.
    I just acquired the web address: http://www.r.fish. hummmm. Anything to that?
    P.S. IN response to Jessi and others pulling in large fish that became smaller at the end of the battle may represent a problem you are confused about and feel overwhelmed in. Dreaming the fish became small when pulled in close could represent the fact that your problem may diminish as you battle it. I think dreaming clears our minds of junk. Sometimes dreams can create junk in our minds if we take them too literal in a negative way. If we take them positively, they can never harm us.

    In my dream saw large number of catfish in the river, then I used another persons basket to catch them then I got home someone smoked them and gave me one and gave the owner of the basket three and I was angry that mine ought to be more than that of the owner of the basket because I am the one who saw the fish and catch them, it was during this argument I woke up. Please what is the meaning of my dream.

  44. Michael james says:

    I have had many dreams of this sort throughout my life. Some are really similar in location to one another and some are different, with one thing in common, strange ponds, lakes, rivers, oceans, and very strange and interesting looking fish that do not exist in reality. In most of these dreams, my first one, I was outside in an area in which I wasn’t lost, yet had no idea where I was (if that makes sense) I saw a great hill or mountain like area shrouded in woods. I then found myself in top of this mountain like area but it was different from the top than one could see from the base. In the middle was really bright and sunny and the area was a clearing and very craggy with big rough rocks and in the center of all this were numbers ponds, lakes and various water holes, all different depths, shapes, sizes, and colors. Red water, yellow water, blue water, brown water. Each water was a different color. I then became very excited because I realized I could fish. So I began to do so. Almost immediately after casting my line out I caught a fish. It was small but very odd looking. Not odd as in mutated but alien like. Almost like a fantasy creature. I looked out into the water and noticed many different varieties. Some were huge like the size of cars, some were bigger, some were smaller like dogs and some were normal bass and bluegill sized. Some of them looked normal but when I caught them and looked closer were also alien like fish. The bigger ones I felt an intimidation from but they never attempted to harm me, or at least I didn’t feel any hostility from them. I hav this dream more than once, and it’s the same place but a different version all with me and these wierd fish. I have had dreams about them that took place in other locations as well. In one dream I was out in a vast ocean I was standing in what looked like glass. And as I went further into the dream, I realised I was in a city that was floating in the water and the glass I stood on was a sidewalk. Some of the sidewalks had been built in a square design as if containing some of the water as a small swimming pool for people. I looked into the water and it was the clearest blue, and in the water I noticed, again, these strange alien like/fantasy fish. Again different shapes, sizes and colors. I didn’t fish in that dream but the strange fish were in it yet again. In another dream I’m in a desert like area in a house made of what seemed like sandstone. Everything is bright and sunny. The floor of my house is in a concave like shape, like a bowl. Suddenly there is water, clear water that is about 3 ft deep. Then I notice the weird alien/fantasy like fish. Small at first but then there are bigger ones. I don’t understand these dreams but I do know that when I have them, there is a great sense of curiosity, excitement, and interest as if I’m somewhere that hasn’t been discovered yet.
