What music does the Hull Truth Community listen to out on the water?

Are there certain songs that attract more fish? What music helps you escape to your boat while stuck at work?

A little Celine Dion with a touch of Josh Groban and some Pavarotti. But if I want to go really wild I play some Andrea Bocelli. Good times.

Everything it depends on what mood I'm in.

Just remember, water is a good conductor of sound. Noises scare fish, unless it's a bait or distressed fish sound..

I understand the opposite..........noise attracts them.....at least fresh water fish.

Could be wrong.

Back on topic...........my wife and our friends enjoy a full spectrum of music including new stuff like Adelle, old rock n roll, motown, etc.....

I used to think this, but I've had several occasions now where the fishing has been slow and we basically gave up, drank beer and turned rock music and the redfish all of a sudden turn on. 3 times can't be a random thing can it? I've also noticed they turn on before thunder storms so maybe they think its a storm coming.

I bought a couple of Bluetooth speakers and was all excited about getting everything hooked up so I could listen to music. I think I listened to it maybe 3 times all last season. I like to listen to the VHF radio because I have a few guys that know me and call me on the VHF. If the fish aren't biting where I am than I am always very appreciative if a fellow boater/fisherman agrees to help me out. I do the same in return, if I am on fish I have no problem helping some guys out. I have cut a couple of guys off of the information train when I called them on the radio and they told me they weren't catching anything and then I either hear or see that they limited out. I don't go for the information train only going one direction!

That makes sense and all, but one time last year we anchored up and blasted some hip-hop/electronic music while getting into our dive gear. We rolled in and there was a wall of sheepshead. I thought they were spadefish at first. Anyways, we joined the party and took a few home

Listening to the VHF down in the La. marsh is better than any comedy program on the air.

Dem Cajuns can come up with some funny chit!

It's about the only place I don't listen to music.

Whenever engines are running music is off so that in the event of a mechanical failure where sound would be an important early warning indicator, it could be heard. That said, I never can hear enough of Stevie Nicks from her best years late 70's-80's.
