Fishing Myths

Post by bassZooKa »

These are just some fishing myths or superstitions that i've heard people tell me (and no i am not making these up, ppl actually told me this stupid stuff):

It is bad luck to catch a clam.

It is bad luck to fish with a woman in the boat.

It is good luck to catch a starfish.

It is bad luck to catch a fish on your first cast because you will not catch anything for the rest of the day.

It is good karma to let your first keeper bass of the season go free.

this is all i can think of off the top of my head anyone hear of anymore?

Of course, the old "bannana in the boat is bad luck" myth. Also, it is bad luck to say "camara", or "picture" during the fight. :lol:

it is bad luck to have a man of god on your vessel ie. preacher priest or whatever

I had heard this superstition previous to this incident

My father proved it. First time he had a man of god on the boat they capsized in the surf everyone was ok and they got the right 20 carolina skiff with tower but he lost 7or8 rods 114h and some 704 and 706's

My grandfather used to use this one as an excuse to not take me fishing...


"It looks like it's going to rain, and those fish, they don't like getting wet."
It's all fun and games till someone loses an eye....

Its good luck to eat bananas during fishing trips. Great source of potassium.

The bet is, u take the banana on a boat and take a picture with it....but I won't be going on a boat with u and a banana after. Make sense?



If you dare me to do it I want money. Going on the boat is not cheap.

dont u go on boats all the time? just ask to stand in one for 2 seconds, hold up a banana and have someone take a picture...so ur giving in on the bet? :roll:


I think you have me confused with someone else. The only time I fished on a boat is when I'm in the Dry Tortugas.

Taking a picture of me on the boat with a banana and then walk off is bs. The effect would be better if I fish on the boat while eating banana. The only way I'll do this is you back it up with money.

Vanesssa, you have Dagon on your side. Bananas are not bad luck it's stupid superstition crap. Cudaman and I always eat the banana and always done well. People use the banana as an excuse for being a crappy fisherman. No one will throw me off the boat. I will burn the boat down before that ever happens.
