Some people argue about listening to music why fishing, what's your opinion on it. Will that effect you catching any fish?

It breaks my focus and concentration. So for me yes it does. As for others I don't know. Plus part of the reason I fish is to get away from everything except for me nature and the occasional other fisherman that wanders by.

I don't listen to anything while I'm fishing. Sometimes I wish I had headphones to block out jet skis!

a large part of why I am out there is to listen to nothing more than the world around me.

I agree with McA. What I want to hear are the noises of nature from the lake. Many times I have heard a fish jump or swirl and sooner or later caught that fish or one very close to the noise maker.

I can't stand it when people have music blaring, drives me insane. I fish with a guy that's constantly missing fish because he's paying too close attention to his iPod.

I don't mind it so much when my family is out fishing with me because I know the chances of me catching anything are slim to none, it never fails they are laughing it up or slamming the compartment doors.

The laughing it up is great but the slamming of the compartment doors... I really have to grit my teeth!!!
Fishing is my idea of a good lip piercing!

I have also found that when it comes to friends, a good friend will come and bail you out of jail, but best friends will be right there beside you saying d**n that was fun !!!

Not while fishing, but I DO want to put a stereo in my boat. Sometimes I'll take a trip to a lake and just drive around, mapping, marking, watching sonar, etc.
I'll play music.

If you bring your family with you, it's nice to have some music available.

I like to fish alone many times for the same reasons I don't listen to music.

When i in a tourney I usually don't, but with the wife and the young en I do. But as far as the fish goes does the fish pay attention to the sound waves?

Not music, but sometimes I'll bring a radio to listen to the Cardinal game.

I built a stereo system into my boat, but I very rarely use it when I'm om the water. Like most of u guys I use my boat to get away from everyday noise pollution. I also listen constantly for fish hitting the surface, movement in cover, or anything else that generally indicates they're fish nearby. I'll turn on a favorite song or radio station while I'm eating lunch and just drifting along, but when it comes time to get back to business I go back to listening to the water. I think I use the boat stereo mostly when its in the driveway and I'm either cleaning or working on it.

To me, music relieves stress. Fishing does the same thing. I personally like to listen to Pandora via my phone...I just have it laying on the jon boat seat beside me. It's not loud at all just background music. To me it's even more relaxing.

I like it quiet when fishing.

I also believe that if the sound producing machine touches any part of the boat it can send vibrations into the water and disturb the fish.

I am also attention deficit and anything around me can break my concentration so I like it nice and quiet.
