Gone Fishin' (Sort of) is the first episode of season one and the first episode on the series.
No one has ever caught a fish in Leaky Lake. Edward and the Dung Beetles believe in legends of a lake drain and a sea serpent. Scoutmaster Lumpus is determined to catch a fish. The Jelly Beans also attempt to catch a fish. They find Lumpus's boat on the pier and play spaceship, accidentally turning it on. Lumpus is angry and goes out to get his boat back, only to be attacked when the fog has Lumpus mistaken for the sea serpent but the fog lifts and The Jelly Beans see that the sea serpent is actually Scoutmaster Lumpus. Lumpus is angry with them but is about to be eaten by the sea serpent!
- Lazlo has a voice similar to Rocko from Joe Murray's previous series Rocko's Modern Life. Both are voiced by Carlos Alazraqui.
- Lumpus having glasses may be a reference to the fact that the normal Moose has very poor eyesight. Many will try to mate with cars on a regular basis (Thinking the car is another Moose).
- On the front gate of Camp Kidney, it says "Do not steal anything".
- In the credits, the lake monster has a pair of arms. But in the episode, he didn't.

- The shape of Scoutmaster Lumpus' mouth and head resemble to Heffer's from Rocko's Modern Life. Tom Kenny provided their voices.
- Credits: The Jelly scouts are having fish sticks with the fish Lumpus caught. The lake monster thanks the Dung Beetles for giving him back his snow globe collection.
- If you listen careful to Clam's voice, you'll noticed he sounds like Lube from CatDog on Nickelodeon. Carlos Alazraqui provides the voice of Clam.

- Lazlo: (Lazlo opens the monster’s mouth) Scoutmaster Lumpus, do you need our help? because you asked us not to help.
- Lumpus: (sarcastically) Oh, no. I’m just getting eaten by a ferocious lake monster Don’t worry about me. What makes you think I need your help.
- Lazlo: Okay, then.
- Lumpus: Lazlo? Lazlo! (Lazlo opens the monster’s mouth again) Actually, I do need your help. And look, I caught a fish!
- Lazlo: Wow! Look, you guys, we caught a fish!
- Lazlo: Isn't this great?
- Lumpus: (sarcastically) Oh, great! Lovely!
- Lazlo: I'm sorry we sunk your fancy boat, and mistook you for a lake monster, but you gotta understand. We were just trying to help you catch a fish.
- Lumpus: Help me? Help me?? You really want to help me?
- Lazlo, Raj, and Clam: Yes.
