I've had serious pain from my right elbow for 4 months....usually hits about 24 hours after fishing.
Diagnosed today as Fisherman's Elbow.
Same thing as tennis elbow, except has more mental anguish, suffering, and requires more equipment.

Seriously, anyone experienced this issue?
I told the doc "laying off fishing ain't gonna happen."
"I only catch the ones that bite"

Yep, I've had it too. It went way after a couple months. I didn't lay off my fishing either. Take two aspirin and launch!!

Yeah. I usually get some discomfort in the elbow after a couple of days on the water. Usually after days where I've been trying to bomb chatter baits or other moving baits--longer casts and more casts.

Got a buddy that has it. He had to have surgery after dealing with it for years. The surgery didn't help in the end. He can't hardly throw crankbait at all anymore. Only was to fix it is to stop fishing. He uses some type of prescription ointment that does pretty good for him but it's expensive.

Had the same thing and it can be painful. Cortisone shots didn't help so I finally went to rehab at Baylor rehab center on I-30 in Mesquite. Took 4 sessions but fixed it and that was 15 years ago. They ask how I fished and after discussing it they determined it was probably caused by my flipping and pitching technique where I was holding a 1oz jig from a 7'6 rod and it put a strain on my elbow. Now I hold the rod lower and next to my side and it takes the pressure away from the elbow.
I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don’t have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don’t have a curfew I have a driver’s license and my own car. The people I hang around with are not scared of getting pregnant. And I have a bass boat.
Life is great!

It only gets worse unless you take care of it. I am a old Coach and have rehabbed many elbows and shoulders. Shoot me a PM and I will try to help.

My doctor told me "whatever you're doing that caused it, don't stop doing it."

I didn't.
It went away.

But wait until you get older. You'll get all kinds of new ones.

Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

Ice. About 5 lbs of it.
In a container big enough to submerge your elbow mix 4 lbs of ice with water.
Put 4oz of ice in crystal tumbler and fill with good bourbon.
Submerge elbow for 15 minutes or 4 drinks which ever comes first.

This remedy will reduce both the swelling and pain in your elbow.
Do this after any strenuous use of your elbow.

I had this same problem about 6 years ago . Went to several Dr's , spent tons of money on various approaches , acupuncture , ART , physical therapy . Nothing helped . It was actually depressing . Taking 4-6 advil just to go fishing wasn't a good option , not to mention the damage those meds do to your liver . Unless your elbow is damaged by a torn ligament or possibly a bone spur --- I would suspect your problem is due to inflammation .
I solved my by changing my diet . I eliminated HFC (high fructose corn syrup) , meats with steroids and antibiotics , all chemicals in any food products . I basically rebuilt my entire immune system . I am now 56 years old and haven't had ANY joint pain in any parts of my body , no more head aches , no more sinus infections and haven't been sick at all in about 4-5 years . I have more energy at 56 than I did when I was 35 .

close your fingers and thumb into "point" take two or three rubber bands wrap and them around your fingers and thumb, now spread your fingers and thumb. repeat this about 25 times a couple times a day, it is an old tennis elbow rehab. it will strength your forearm muscles and their connection to the arm's tendons.

I was preparing to have my shoulder fixed (bone spur & rotator cuff). Right elbow began hurting with swelling. Could not extend it straight. Went to my Ortho Doc and the plan changed. Shoulder had to wait. Debris in the elbow, either get it fixed right away or risk the elbow locking up. Baseball and fishing had done a number on the elbow.
My advice after having one elbow and two shoulder surgeries (which I put off for years) get them checked. If surgery is needed, get it done, don't put it off. Surgery recovery as you get older sucks!
