Does blasting your stereo affect fishing?

If you’re in skinny water sure turn it off. If you’re trolling or bottom fishing in 100+ feet you aren’t gonna head it at all.
Maybe we should blast a recording of some old DD's at trolling speed into our bilge.

I love music all types and have good stereos on my boat but I never blast music when fishing- shallow, deep, whatever. Running out and back- yes I will play music for sure.

I remember seeing something along those lines a few years ago. It was something that sounded like diesels that you towed behind your outboard boat while trolling lol.

If I can hear YOUR music on MY boat, yes you will definitely have a problem fishing.

Fish can only sense the lower end of the auditory spectrum. That's the bass notes that we can hear. Whether the sound attracts or repels fish depends on the type of fish and a lot of other variables.

Didn't hurt our effort this past Saturday. Guys trip. Had our limit of gags on ice before we picked up our limit of snapper. That said, I wouldn't blast Metallica if I was in skinny water chasing redfish and trout...or in a pond bass fishing.

Your stereo blasting affects my fishing, however if you've got your hot wife or GF dancing on the pole on the bow of the boat, I'm willing to put up with it.

I even turn off my VHF when I'm fishing. Nothing like peace and quiet out there.

Only appropriate when you're fishing like this:

There's a reason your grandfather told you that talking and making noise was bad for fishing . . . but it had nothing to do with fish.

This is an interesting discussion. As a counterpoint to the "music off" crowd, think about how much noise an active oil rig or drill ship makes, yet the fishing around them is excellent.
