Listen To Music While Fishin?

66 posts in this topic

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.

LISTEN...DO YOU HEAR THAT?...MY POINT EXACTLY!!!

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!!!

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.

Different stokes for different folks!

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.

In general: Freshwater, no. Saltwater, yes.

It has moreso to do with styles and techniques, but nobody can deny me that listening to Reggae while reeling in a sailfish deep sea fishing is about perfect.

Everyone is missing my point lol. I don't listen to it while fishing in a tournament. Rarely listen to it at all, but I always here people arguing whether or not it effects the bite? There's nothing better to me than bein on the lake with just the sounds of the great outdoors.

I like it quite too, maybe on the way back to the ramp or dock I might put on some CCR.

The noise, most defiantly can scare fish away...too much vibration can send them swimming away.

im not sure if music affects the bite while fishing or not. never listened to music while fishing on a boat.

but fishing from a dock i have seen times where the bite changed when the type of music changed. i like to fish with live bait at night off the dock at my uncles house on smith mountain lake, play music, and get drunk lol. listening to classic rock the bite is good to great, when i turn to rap/rnb the bite seems to die, switch back to classic rock and it picks back up. my favorite thing is saturday nights 10-12 when Dee Sniders House Of Hair comes on the radio, love that 80s hair metal, and it seems like i always catch a nice fish when HOH is on the radio. the music isnt usually too loud unless its an awesome song ill crank it up for that.

Who knew fish loved old school metallica.....

I would listen to anything to keep the jet skiers away..... I liked the rocket launcher idea.

Pertaining to the fish. I think it depends on the amount of vibration being put out by said radio. If you think about it a speaker situated to where its back is facing a hollow part of hull then the vibration given off would be substantially more, than say walking from bow to stern. My belief is that the speakers even turned down to a low volume in a setting as described above would still amplify and cause vibration, much as subwoofers do when installed in a enclosed box. So I would think if your fishing along a bank then leave it off. If fishing open water you would probably be ok with it on.

If your not blasting the music or pushing allot of bass there is probably more disturbance in the water than what your music is adding. But im with most of these guys, i love the sound of the outdoors.

Like so many things that do not have a definitive answer......

Music may not turn the bite off, but it sure as heck isn't going to turn the bite on.

It can't help, and can only hurt.
