Gone Fishin' is the thirteenth episode of Ben 10: Omniverse.
Ben, Rook, Grandpa Max, and Magister Patelliday are fishing in Spaceman's Wharf in Undertown. Rook catches a fish, while Ben turns into Ripjaws and jumps into the lake, failing to get a fish. While fishing, Ben loses a fish and it jumps on his face, but it was quickly removed by Rook. Ben again turns into Ripjaws and swims with Patelliday, who is caught by Mechaneers using fish bait. Ripjaws defeats one of the Mechaneers and chases the other, but the Omnitrix times out and Ben comes out of the lake and informs Rook and Max of Patelliday's capture. While searching for Patelliday, they plunge from a waterfall and Ben turns into Rath, but he loses his composure (as he is afraid of water) and the boat falls down from the waterfall. Meanwhile, the Mechaneers bring Patelliday into the kitchen. Captain Kork asks for lunch, but they give him Patelliday raw (he's still alive). Kork complains, saying that he wanted his meal cooked.
When Ben, Rook, and Max are traveling towards the pirate HQ, they are attacked by Mechaneers and Ben turns into Jury Rigg and reassembles all the Mechaneers into two Mechaneers who start to fight with each other. Suddenly, they are attacked by a Krakken and Ben turns into Crashhopper and defeats the Krakken. Patelliday defeats the Mechaneers and escapes. Meanwhile, the trio reaches the pirates HQ entry and encounters a force field, which Patelliday proceeds to open. Ben, Rook, Patelliday and Max then jump into Captain Kork's submarine. Ben turns into Diamondhead and defeats Captain Kork while Rook, Patelliday, and Max defeat the Mechaneers. Rook hacks the submarine, setting the self-destruct ,and the group escapes. Rook opens the bottles in which Captain Kork bottled the ships. It is evident that Captain Kork is arrested for keeping hostages and stealing ships.
