Do you prefer to fish alone??

Recommended Posts

I love to fish with others, however I feel that I prefer to fish by myself more often than not. I've discovered that i'm far more attentive and in tune with everything whilst alone. Does anyone feel the same? Or perhaps, feel the opposite? Thanks

Alone  . I have a long list of people wanting me to take them fishing and I rarely do . I dont get to fish as much as I like so when I do go I want to enjoy it as much as possible .

It depends on what I am going after.

if I am just out for numbers it can be more fun with someone else in the boat.

If I am purposely targeting big fish being alone is better. I am more methodical when I am alone.

For Bass, absolutely alone. No worries about someone showing up late, not showing at all, or informing you after towing the boat 4 hours, they need to be home by noon. Brian.

I like fishing alone but I hate the drive and launch etc. It depends on who is with me as well. My wife or daughter or my dad I enjoy.  I've taken several guys that ended up not so enjoyable

I enjoy being alone in the canoe, going where I want to try on the lake without worrying about the other person wanting to try someplace else. Also with the home situation, scheduling outings is very problematical so being able to go with someone else would be very difficult.

I like to fish with someone, but I have trouble finding people that want to go consistently.  To be fair, I am on a level of dedication that no one I know (save you guys) is on.  So I might go out from sun up to 4 or 5, or out at 6pm till dark, maybe not even catch a fish, my friends are not really up to that.  They just want to go out for a couple hours.

 

They don't see my perspective of all the things that go on with boat ownership, work, kids, etc.  When I get a chance to get out on the water, I'm going to stay as long as I can. 

 

One guy I know wants to go out, but doesn't want to be at my house by 530, and thinks I'm crazy for having graphs, and more than one rod.  He thinks you just go out and soak a bait and catch fish.

 

Lol, I told him I would be happy to take him out with his ugly stick/zebco combo and he tells me where to stop and we will just start slayin em.........

Alone. For many reasons stated above.

This. Normally with friends.

 

 

I've learned:

 

 

Alone:  Concentrate on myself catching fish and having fun. Enjoy peace and quiet and ability to perhaps work and area or specific lure more than I would with friends. 

 

Together:  Concentrate on making sure others are catching fish and having fun.

 

 

I enjoy both.

I fish with my grandson every Saturday morning. Between these trips I fish alone.

   I usually fish alone. I would prefer to fish with my friends, but most of them are now dead. Bummer.   jj

I fish alone 95% of the time. I’m an extrovert, but I enjoy solitude just as much as being around a lot of people. Fishing is my outlet for  when I just want to relax and be left alone.

After fishing alone for 95% of the time I enjoy fishing with someone more. 

You can do things like talk. 

Finally found a partner that’s as ‘in it’ as me, so that helps. 

Loading/unloading the boat is a whole lot easier as well. 

Plus after you catch a big one alone, you kinda just look around. Sorta like doing heroin alone, not as much fun...I would suspect at least

You and I are universes apart when it come to the definition of fun.  

  

When I'm 'fishing', I love to have company.  

When I am hunting for A Fish, I'll be doing that alone.

Kyle, on a weekday I love being on the water by myself. Nothing like it in the world. Just you and Mother Nature.

 

For tournaments, I like to have a partner with me. Not only to help make our limit but to focus on what we are both doing and the changes we have to make during the day to be successful.

I just fish for fun so companies are always welcome, but I always fish alone. Also family and friends that you can share the excitement of the catches are a must. Last year I had a friend and the only one I can truly call my fishing partner living with me for a few months. I really enjoyed the fishing more, we went out all night fishing a few times, we stayed out in the boat all day with no food just snacks and water, yet sometime I wanna kick him out of the boat. 

This year different story, things changed.

Oddly enough, I try to take someone with me as frequently as possible. Especially when it’s someone that doesn’t get to fish much from a boat.

 

On some occasions I’ve been out in my boat I had planned to go trophy hunting but within minutes of leaving the ramp I found myself inviting a bank angler to the back of the boat. I don’t know why but I almost feel obligated to do so. Maybe it has something to do with the 30 years of longing to be fishing from a boat never thinking I would be doing so.
