It's the vacation that no one wants to go on. Every spring, TNT's Kenny Smith packs up his rod and reel and puts out a sign that says he's Gone Fishin'.

Who has joined Kenny on the water in the past? The question should be more akin to "Who hasn't?" From GMs like Jerry West to international superstars like Tiger Woods have cast their lot with Kenny.

And oh yes, Charles has gone too. Every time a team gets eliminated from the playoffs, a select few get invited to go on the "Gone Fishin'" trip with Kenny.

Check out who has joined Kenny on his excursions so far. And while you're motoring out to the middle of the lake, check out who "takes" these photos and the 2005 gallery.
