Anyone Superstitious?

Recommended Posts

I don't think I am superstitious, but there is two things I do. 

 

#1. I have a lucky penny I found at the ramp on my boat's maiden voyage.  The penny has been up front on the deck of that boat for over twenty years.

 

#2. I do everything I possibly can, to not catch a fish on the first cast.  I will throw out and reel in fast. You can't believe how many times, I have caught on the first cast and then the bite just died.  This new technique has worked out pretty good for me.  Makes no sense but I like it!

You MIGHT want to reconsider whether you're superstitious :)

 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.

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 had a pitcher explain to me how unlucky this was to do.

So I did just the opposite. I always stepped on the line on the way out and on the way in.

I told him I'd do it, so all the bad luck came my way and he could concentrate on pitching.

(of all positions on a diamond the pitcher is the one with the greatest possibility of being a head case)

There isn't anything wrong about being superstitious, it's not a sign of weakness or ignorance.

If you believe a specific idiosyncratic act brings you good luck or bad luck I believe you are normal. Lots of people don't believe in luck or religion, I feel sorry them.

I have more quirks then most being analytical to a fault, focused at times blocking out everything around me and more then a few superstitions.

We had horse shoe nailed up over the garage door, a rabbit hanging for good luck at our home. Friday the 13th was observed as a day of bad luck.

Any sport I was envolved in had superstitions and always gave them credence. Why upset the balance, I learned the hard way when you do. There is usually a good reason behind most superstitions and they make life more interesting.

 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?

Nope and I've caught a lot of bass on Sunday🤣🤣

I'll say that I'm not totally 'superstitious'  but

I do believe in Good Karma and Bad Juju.

So that might be sort of the same thing  . . .

And I wouldn't mind it a bit, if I could relocate my Big Fish Mojo.

Which has been MIA for a while now . . . .

I do remember that my buddy Kyle who taught me how to fish for bass used to have a couple that had come down his family line, one was if the cattle are lying in the pasture we would not go fishing, he was dead serious about that, which being stationed in Texas was a bit of a problem seeing as it's the cattle capital of existence, the other had to do with a whippoorwill, something about its call being lucky I believe, those birds didn't live in Texas so it was not something I paid much attention to

You need to read my Cosmic Clock and Bass Calender instruction page.

My only fishing superstition is if I catch a decent bass on my first cast it's the kiss of death for the rest of the day......lol

So a guy goes fishing with a new hat and a new lure.  He has a great day.  Was it because the new hat is lucky?  Was it because the new lure is the best lure ever?   or was it just a good day?

 

It's probably a bigger mistake to give too much credit to the lure than it is to give any credit to the hat.  It's human nature to try to explain what are largely random events both good and bad.   That's the nature of superstition.  Being able to interpret everything that happens on the water and put it in its proper context is a critical fishing skill. 

 

You do need a hat to keep the sun out of your eyes so it might as well be the lucky hat. 😊

Were mine there with 'em? I was on the water at 5.00 AM and the dinks were cooperative, the big girls never came out to play.

Didn't see any with your name on them.

I'll be back at it at sunrise.

I'll  be sure to mention that you were asking for them.

Superstition, good and bad karma, voodoo, etc. I have a relationship with them all.

 

I fell while bank fishing twice last season while fishing with a certain rod and reel. Same rod and reel went flying from my hands on a cast and crashed onto some rocks. Never happened before, my hand just opened at the end of the cast. I lost the same combo over the side of my kayak. I was able to get it back but it was the first rod I lost overboard.

 

Too much coincidence not to make me think it wasn’t cursed.
