Radios While Fishing?


Recommended Posts

if i am on the dock night fishing at my uncles house on smith mountain lake crushing cans of budweiser, then hell yeah i want some music and i will blast it sometimes too. some of my best fish have come while blasting 80s hair metal. if out on the boat, my uncle will play music sometimes too, doesnt bother me at all to listen to music and fish, i can walk and chew gum at the same time =]

I called out sick to go fishing on the first nice day we had this season up here in CT.  I was out there on a small lake at around 8am, and it should have been beautiful. Weather cooperated, but a ways down the shore there were 2 other anglers who brought a portable radio with them playing their music SO LOUD. Therefore, THEY were loud, yelling and swearing, I could have been in the middle of a city. (not to mention I had my Son with me).

 

It toally ruined the experience.  We ended up packing up and walking farther down the lake.  Not a fan of music in that situation, when in any other instance it would have been completely quiet. That being said, they weren't doing anything WRONG....just annoyed me.

I love listening to some music when i fish...but sometimes opt to keep it off just so I can hear any disturbance on the water around me.  And to keep an eye out for all the gators we got here in South Carolina.

If I play music, its low and I always play artists that are topic: Hootie & The Blowfish; Country Joe & The Fish; Emerson, LAKE and Palmer; Little River Band; Muddy Waters, etc.

When I plied the ocean and when we go on vacation in Canada's outback,

I'll pack my VHF-FM Transceiver for emergency use only.

That and EPIRB is the sum total of my radio experience while boating.

We were fishing a few years ago and when there was Blues playing on the radio the bite was on. other genres there was no bite.  I think it has to do with the different tones that the fish hear, some might excite them.

aw heck yeah I love zombieposting, this Thread is Risen 🙏🙌

I don't have a boat, but if I did you're darn right I'd be absolutely blasting Van Halen as I'm doing 60 across the lake. I'm honestly shocked there aren't more radios in bass boats.

I just use wireless headphones so I don't have to worry about the possibility.  I do know sounds travels faster in water and i would bet banging around in the bottom of the boat makes more of a difference than any music playing.  

 

I do think it is annoying to hear music playing from anbother boat though, kind of like the people who leave their music on while pumping gas.

Virtually all of the wake boats here in the summer time blast their garbage while they cruise across the lake, creating massive waves as they go.  They are easily the most hated demographic of watercraft out there right now.  Don't add to the problem.  Be part of the solution.

I always have a speaker playing music if I’m in a spot all alone I’ll jam. If I’m around other boats I will have it turned down for me. Now if I’m in the middle of no where and you come up and fish next to me you’re going to hear my music I won’t turn it down.

Ya - I listen to the music that's on my tablet....through my ear-buds. That way I can blast it, but not bother someone who's only a dozen or less yards away from me.

I hate wake boats too, but a bass boat on a run is loud and makes wake one way or the other. Music down while trolling, blasting while running. I don't really see the problem with that. Especially if it's not the trash sounds I usually hear from the wake boats lol

I hear that...

This is a sample of what I listen to on the water. Course I've bought the CDs and put the songs on my desktop with Media Monkey - then just sync since both the tablet and phone have MM as well.

my driving music varies a lot but lately my trips to the lake have involved a lot of van halen, journey, and boston

I don't even listen to music when I drive vehicles, (not common, i know) but I definitely don't want to listen to music while on the water. Far too many natural sounds to enjoy.

I bought a 1981 Z28 back in September. It has a detachable face radio. The face has stayed in the dash since I bought it. I took a cruise with the wife today. She said I need to get that radio going. I told her to listen to "the music of my people" coming from the car.

 

As for fishing, I never listen to music. I'm out there to find some peace. I might miss the sound of a fish chasing bait.

I used to listen to music all the time while fishing. I had a really nice sound system installed in my last new fiberglass bass boat, 2001 19' ChampioN. One day while fun fishing during the summer I dove in for a cool off and could hear the music under water, especially the bass. Never again played music while fishing. I bought a couple of new aluminum rigs, and a used Stratos after that. Never even thought about having adding a sound system.
