Tom accompanies his owner, Clint Clobber on a fishing trip. Seeing this as the perfect opportunity to humiliate Tom, Jerry gathers some fishing supplies and tags along. While Tom's owner is loading the car with supplies, Tom is resting in the back of the car, when suddenly, Jerry throws a spare fishing pole at his head. He then grabs a fence out of the garden and uses it to climb into the car, but is met by Tom, who responds by catapulting him out of the vehicle using its back door. The car then starts up, but Jerry manages to regain cover and boards the vehicle before it leaves. Meanwhile, Tom is keeping watch outside of the back door, and Jerry sneaks behind him and kicks him out of the car. Tom scratches his head on the pavement, but manages to make it back to the vehicle. He sees Jerry, and tries to grab him, before finally resorting to smacking him with a pan. However, he accidentally hits his owner, who responds by smacking him with the pan several times. This causes him to get into trouble with traffic, allowing Tom and Jerry's fight to resume.

Jerry runs under the front seat, prompting Tom to search for him with his hand. During this time, he jumps onto the gas pedal, causing the car to rapidly increase its speed. Tom's owner then notices his hand searching under the seat, and, believing it to be the cause, steps on it, causing his hand to swell and turn red. Jerry then beings tempting Tom with a first aid kit, who tries to smack him but misses, causing his hand to hurt further. He then chases Jerry outside, all the way to the front hood of the car. Tom's owner notices him, and responds by slowing the car down, causing him to fall off the car and scrape his behind on the pavement. Tom then runs off to a nearby pond to cool off, evaporating all the water in the process. He then returns to the road and searches for his owner, who appears and grabs him by the neck. As punishment, Tom is placed in the front seat for the remainder of the trip, though Tom manages to squeeze himself back into the back of the car. Before arriving, Jerry disguises one of Tom's owner's shoes as a mouse by drawing a face on it and placing brown flaps on its top.

Once Tom and his owner arrive at the lake, they are ready to fish. Tom out of through the back and to the front of the car. He then keeps guard as his owner leaves the car. During this time, Tom notices his owners shoe, and, believing it to be Jerry, smacks it with an oar. This causes his owner to bump his head against the car, who tries to pull himself out, prompting Tom to flee. However, his owner manages to make it out of the roof and catches Tom with a fishing line, attacking him in a long off-screen thrashing. as punishment, the owner makes him carry a lot of stuff. On the boat Tom sees Jerry in the basket and use a pump to get him out. Angry Jerry swims to the boat. Tom and his owner are fishing in peace. Jerry attaches a fishing line on the owner while Tom and the owner were fishing, this causes him to get into a lot of trouble.
