Do You Fish Alone Or With A Buddy?

Recommended Posts

Do you prefer to go solo or bring someone along fishing? I know I like going alone, for many reasons.

I prefer to fish alone unless it's with my son.

I like both. I'm probably about half and half. I think there are positives to both. I like the serenity of being out by myself. I like going out with a friend as well. Sometimes I like the fish to myself and others I like to share the experience. Sure is nice to have someone helping with fuel though when I'm in the glass boat.

Alone. Most of the rest of my life requires me to be social. Fishing is the best way I have found to get away from people for awhile.

Not very often that I get annoyed with myself.

Both. I enjoy being alone sometimes, but other times I like having a friend to talk to, crack jokes with, and catch fish with.

Reminds me of a good George Thorogood And The Destroyers song... :)

 

I fish alone, yeah / With nobody else
I fish alone, yeah / With nobody else
Yeah, you know when I fish alone / I prefer to be by myself

I used to fish alone, met and married the woman of my dreams and now it's always the two of us.

Beautiful, rides motorcycles and fishes.  I have the PERFECT woman!

Having company sometimes make fishing even more enjoyable. I seem to get the most bites when I am chatting away with my buddy. Sadly, I also miss the most bites as well chatting with him...

I enjoy fishing with someone most of the time, but fishing alone is great.

Both, depending on my mood. I really enjoy taking someone new out and watching their excitement when we do well. I especially like passing on my fishing addiction to my grandchildren.

Depends on who it is. Although in general I love to pass the sport on, I honestly don't like taking someone who has no idea how to fish bc it's more just me teaching them instead of fishing myself. Selfish, I know. I can only do it every once in a while. 

I love fishing with my brother, and also with my boss, who loves fishing and hunting. 

 

But for the most part, I'm out there alone.

I prefer alone. But I'll sometimes take my daughter, who doesn't like fishing as much as I do but loves making noise and getting in front of where I'm casting. :) My dad is now in his 70's and fishing wears him out.

 

I have a buddy I'll go with sometimes when he invites me because he has a boat. That's the only way easier than taking my kayak. When I go with him I usually bring home some fish to clean.

I enjoy fishing alone and with a friend. I used to go alone quite a bit at night when I had my boat because I liked to stay until I was ready to come home which was usually 4 or 5 in the morning. I used to take friends at night with the stipulation they were stuck until I was ready to pack it in unless there was an emergency. So they knew what they were getting into beforehand. LOL. I hate to hear someone belly aching about how late it's getting...Otherwise I enjoy fishing with someone who is like-minded and won't give in until we both agree we've had enough...

On lakes I prefer alone but I'll take a friend every now and then. Ponds I like to go with a friend.

I'd have to say both. Bringing a friend is great as long as that friend can cast, it's nothing like spending all day pulling up on a great looking spot and their first cast is in the trees. Going alone also great because I seem to accomplish more. What I mean is that I spend most of the time locked on the sonar trying to figure out new spots, but when a friend comes along I generally take them to spots that I'm pretty sure will produce so I'm not trying out new stuff.

Sounds like a hat trick and that's almost always a winner. I got two outa three and it's worked for 45yrs.

I prefer having a companion along, especially if momma doesn't know.

I still cast into trees. Not so much with a BC, but since I'm still kinda new to spinning reels and not used to the release times, I tend to catch a lot of tree bass with them.

I prefer to take my dog. He has yet to complain about a bad day.

I like fishing with my friend, but I definitely fish better alone. I focus more on fishing instead of trying to outfish him. (Everything's a competition for him.)
