Radio while fishing?

Recommended Posts

Do you listen to the radio while fishing (specifically in a boat)? Do you feel it has any effect on how many fish you catch (positive or negative)? Just curious. Comments welcome

Voted No. I like listening for activity on the lake and fishing is my time away from electronics (other than depth finder).

Someone had a thread awhile ago about Ipods and I think the concensus was no music while fishing.

The bass on Toledo Bend are partial to Lynyrd Skynyrd!

Our bass prefer the two-step, being southern and all that.  ::)

    Even though my dad listens to it every outing I prefer not to listen to music at all, but since it is my dad's boat can't really do anything about it.

    I do believe also that music will sometimes scare the fish.

Bass like to be entertained out there: singing and dancing are very much appreciated by them and will certainly turn the bite on. Even better is falling in the water with cell phone attached. After that it's a bass on every cast. ;D ;D ;D

No way. My part of the world is too noisy already. Plus it interferes with the voices in my head.......

Every so often I will. Me and a buddy found out that shell cracker love hardcore death metal on Lake Lookout.

Although i do enjoy blasting skynyrd as much as the next smallie fishermen, ive found that when i really need a bite, it pays to listen. Sometimes you'll miss a splash next to the boat or be to engrossed in the music to notice something jumping near the bank. That could have been the fish of a lifetime.

If the radio is on, I can't hear my bait plop in the water, or whine of my reel during a cast, or myself cuss when I screw up a cast...

Several of my most successful days bass fishing was due to hearing the splash of baitfish being chased on the surface more than 50 yards away. Not only do I not have music on my boat, I don't even like having a person with me that talks a lot.

I voted never. When I am fishing I like the music that nature makes over anything that comes out of a radio.

I pop one ear but from my Zune. Normally, would put in two, but since i bank fish, I want to make sure I don't have to put a hook into an onshore fish of the two legged variety.

But, if I had a boat, something with some bass in it. Don't Bass like bass?? :D
