“Have you seen the new fishing website?"/"No, it’s not online yet.”

A fishing website pun is:

Q: Have you seen the new fishing website?
A: No, it’s not online yet.


The “online"/"on line” joke has been cited in print since at least 2001.

“Can you buy clothes pegs online?” and “Can you tell me when the next train is coming?"/"Look online” and “What do you call a teller on a tightrope?"/"Online banking” are other “online” jokes.
