Anyone Superstitious?

Recommended Posts

 Does anyone have any fishing superstitions? How about a lucky lure or favorite hat?  For instance, I won't fish on a Sunday. It's  bad luck for me..So what say you?

None.  Everything is based on science and mathematical probability.  If that info isn't available I fly by the seat of my pants - logic and experience.

Not superstitious, just a little stitious. (Michael Scott)

the same underwear during the entire football season

after my team wins. :D

You seriously don't fish on one of the seven days we have because of "bad luck"?

 

Who dishes out this luck and why did they pick Sunday for you to be unlucky? I wonder if you can file an appeal, maybe change it to Tuesday or something. Then again I stay away on weekends sometimes due to crowds.

 

Maybe if you wear two different colored socks you could fish on Sundays.

 

I have no superstitions. I'll fish on Friday the 13th and I'll walk under a ladder indoors with an open umbrella to get there if I must. I even bring bananas sometimes so I guess you could call me a bit reckless ;)

 

I could see having a lucky shirt, but to not go at all - F that.

I'm not too surprised that y'all aren't superstitious,  I did think some of y'all might have a lucky hat or something like that

I'm thinking of filing an appeal to the wonderful wizard of oz,, see what he can do for me. Honestly, I just take Sunday off usually.

I am about some things, but nothing about fishing.  My main one is that I *have* to get a haircut/beard trim the morning of or the day before I start a new gig.  Even when it's nothing client-facing and I am just monkeying around a warehouse I feel like I cannot focus and get started without a bald dome and neat beard.

I am superstitious. I know if the sky is clear and there is no wind, my chances of a great day are non-existent. If it's overcast and windy, I could possibly have my best outing of the year.

All kidding aside, if I'm in a funk and need a good confidence building outing, I'll grab my favorite lure, rod/reel, a new Red Sox cap and I'll leave momma at home. There's some superstition and some logic mixed in there, but it's mostly confidence in myself, my gear and the fact that the wife isn't there to upstage me. The new Sox cap is just an excuse to get a new one.

Yep.

 

Cajun grandmother taught me to be superstitious since I was a young child.

 

When I am watching a sporting event and my team is doing well, I will not move or change positions until they screw up.  Used to get dressed for high school sports in a certain manner.  Had to touch home plate when I played on church's softball team going in and out of the field. Have to have certain brand name items for specific bodies of water including rods, reels, baits and presentations.

 

Crazy?  Yes. Does it work?  Every time.  Will I keep doing it?  Of course.  

 

Now, do you want to discuss the ghost that haunts my house?????? Just ask my wife and she will tell you what it was doing to her as she quilted. ;)

Seacow, I have two favorite crankbaits that seem to work better than my other crankbaits.

 

I am very careful when I use them.

Always wear the same hat but that could be more about comfort. And no bananas, banana bread, banana boat sunscreen. No bananas!

The first cast catch curse is real. I don't care what anyone says. I never have a good outing when that happens. Had it happen 5 times this season alone. Sometimes I'll make a cast into land just to prevent the curse from happening.

I don't have any fishing or any other superstitions at this time. But I used to have a few.

 

I played hockey on college (goalie) and in the locker room I never let my sticks cross. On game days I was always the first one on the ice and the last one off the ice. I went on a 2 year undefeated streak and wore the same undershirt every single game, although I did wash it once at the end of that first season. We lost in the playoffs in year two and I tossed the shirt away.

 

I also pitched for my college baseball team and never, ever stepped on the baseline when going to the mound or dugout. It didn't help, though. I got rocked more often than not.

I caught one on my first cast the other day and broke my most fish per day record.

I have no superstitions with fishing. When I was iny teens, I boxed in the Kansas City Golden Gloves for 3yrs. My thing was this: I always had my dad touch my gloves before a fight. He did this for me, and I think he said a quick prayer. He did this in 1973, on the final night of the Golden Gloves for me. I won the the novice division championship that night by 3rd round TKO. I weighed 119lbs. My dad did this for me for the rest of my fights.I think it helped

“Very superstitious..writin’s on the wall..”

 

Nah, if you fish a lot you’ll get past all those.

My favorite bait is the one that’s working. I’ll throw a butter knife on a bobber if it gets bit.

Superstitions is a placebo which does effect outcome on a short term basis. 

Anyone superstitious about their marriage?

Don’t think so.

I prefer to fish in a white TW shirt like in my profile pic since I was wearing one both times I beat my PB. But I will fish in any shirt. I will NEVER step on a chalk line on a baseball/softball field though. That started when I was mabe 12 or 13 and I played through college and have coached for 14 years and I still won't step on the lines.

Beg to differ. Women have always put a curse on me.
