Do you like music ?

Recommended Posts

When I fisrt got my ipod last summer i tried doing this.  It was very wierd and a little to spooky for me.  I felt like I knew nothing about my surroundings.  Taking away one of your senses does wierd things to your others.  I always felt like something was kreepying up on me and I just overall felt unsafe.

I love listening to nature and the sounds but occasionally I'll bring a little radio and turn it down low and play music and fish!  I caught a 7 lb'er out of my two man last year listening to a cd!  I think it liked the music cause it "danced" by the edge of my boat when I pulled it up!   I usually only listen if I'm fishing by myself--don't want spook somebody else's fish too!

One of the reasons i like to fish is to get on the water and listen to the naturla sounds. I leave radios, etc at home.  Why listen to music when you canhear so many sounds you usually don't hear.  I love the sounds of frogs, birdes, fish jumping, etc.  With a headset you would miss all that.

    I'm a professional musician, so fishing is one of my few chances to get away from the job  ;D.

I don't know of anyone that doesn't like some type of music but I think it has it's place in life. For me, fishing isn't one of those times. I think you would miss out on the overall experience.

I have to agree that I like to get out and fish to get away from the noise.  I like to hear the birds, the insects, and listen for water splashing.  I would think that wearing headphones would take away from your senses and make you less of an angler.

Now if I was fishing deep with live bait and the fishing got slow, I might see turning on small radio softly or something.

Metallica. . . while fishing!! :o  Maybe there's a place for that on the next X games.  ESPN 2 presents:  X-treme Bass Fishing, hosted by Ted Nugent (does anybody know if the Nuge fishes? Probably with a spear.)

They could put the top ten bass anglers in jet boats and give them like an hour to catch their limit.

Give them each about six No-doze pills and turn them loose.  ;D JK

fivebasslimit... I'm with you. Metallica kicks. Old or new. I've always got it blaring when I'm trout fishing or still fishing.. otherwise it just gets too boring. But bass fishing I can usually do without music. Occasionally we will bring a little radio on the boat though.

I have around 35 songs stored on my mp3 player and enjoy dancing to the music on the bow of my boat.  Seems it adds a little something to lure action and makes me forget that I haven't been bit in 3 hours! I'm talking 30 years of classic rock, some new age and jazz. And lets not forget Spice Girls!

If I wanted to hear the sound of running water, I'd flush a few times. ;D

Hey Senko,

Does anyone (in other boats) offer tips?  I mean. . . to stop dancing!   ;D

I bet that's entertaining for the other anglers.  You never know.  You just might show up on America's Funny Videos sometime and make some $$!

::)Only if my wife goes with me, anytime else, I try to keep focus on what going on around me. Distractions causes alot of missed chances or possible accidents and God knows I help enough on my plate as is. :P

Nope, no radio on my boat. Too busy fishing and watching Mother Nature. Besides, If the radio was playing how could my clients hear me talk of the big ones that they should have been here yesterday for.

I have a new radio/cd player in the basement that my wife bought me for xmas. The old radio in my boat crapped out and I'm really looking forward to fishing with the tunes playing. As soon as the boat comes out of winter storage I'll be installing it. I guess I'll need to burn some new Linkin Park cds to keep in the boat as well !!!

I have XM radio, 6-CD changer stereo installed on the Ranger.  I got the XM so we can listen to NASCAR while on the water!  That's the wife's rules... oh darn.  ;)

i might listen to a little 2pac while im fishin if im sittin at docks drinkin brew with my buddys or if we're just killin time away from the ladys

but once the serius fishin starts the music off.

i like the sound of nothing. where im from it aint loud, and down here in the lower 48 you have cars and street lights and all sorts of other noise so fishing is a good excape from all the chaos and rackit.
