Know the song mate thanks ,its great .That reminded me of meat and potato man from him.Great .

Mate, I love "When I Retire" by Dave Averey?
Nugget plays it on his show some times, just about sums it up I reckon.

If you want actual fishing songs, not just songs to listen to while fishing, checkout "Worlds Greatest Fishing Band" Papa was a Fishin Man - 50 song - 4CD set. Formerly known as the Dorados. They are American but still good fishin music.

They also have a CD's titled "All Gone Fishin" & "Drinkin Town Fishin Problem"

For Australia fishing songs check out Ron Odgers CD titled "Sittin, Sippin, Fishin"

Thanks Steve.I actually dont listen to anything while fishing ,but there is a few songs i like to listen to while on the way to the ramp or driving down the beach looking for that gutter.Its kinda puts me in the mood and my kids love it too ,having said that it can be boring listen to Slims light on the hill 10 times in a row on my sons request.

I like Troy Casser Daleys River Boy as it is the first song I heard on my first boat a little over two years ago . but I also like most music from the eighties ( not quite fishing music )

Its a big day dawning, i see the sunlight flickering out across the bay
All rigged up and im ready to go , got the charts from the bureau...weatherman said the weathers fine
A big black marlin is going to be mine
Haul up the anchor, move in slow, blast of engines and off we go...
This is where i love to be riding the swell on the deep blue sea...
Hay mate come out fishing with me.....

25 odd years ago on cris conroys world of boats, a 30 min show on the marlin comp off tangals
Never been able to get that thing out of my head...esp on a early morning running out...

I must admit that i sometimes play AC Dc...when we have some wild trips back home from offshore....but Keith Urban is easy on the ears also....

'Custard - Lucky Star'
'The Titanics - Millionaire Adventure Balloonist'

'The Fauves - Celebrate the Failure' would be a good one for coming home from the ramp.

14-09-2007, 12:13 PM
if you up and heading out early in the morning nothing beats jack johnson "rainbow" a must have!

14-09-2007, 04:26 PM
zz top, its just great fishing music!!!!!!!

14-09-2007, 04:26 PM
For me its usually anything from the foo fighters, or for those early morning trips pink floyd usually the "Wish you were here" album sometimes Dark side of the moon gets a play.

do like kryptonite too though

Jimmy Buffet hits the spot to put me in a nautical frame of mind



14-09-2007, 04:47 PM

No exeptions there mate:) .Mark knopfler put out a fantastic country album last year,Bon jovi just done it.Who would have tought so?Bernard fanning was at the top of the countrycharts for months with his album last year.
This is getting far away from fishing now,sorry mods.

Dan Tyminski, Hayseed Dixie, George Jones..any hillbilly stuff works for me when I'm heading out to fish in the early morning. If you want a fishing song. Primus "The Old Diamond Back Sturgeon " comes to mind. A song written from the fishes perspective...pretty kooky. the bass playing is other worldly. Primus are very keen fisho's...Other Primus songs, Harold of the rocks, John the fisherman.
Not everyones cup of tea though. Most people would listen to it with a confused look on their face.
Makes me wiggle and dance like a muppet

Try a song called the Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald by Gordon Lightfoot....Love that song...gives me chills every time I listen to it...and you wont get a more nautical song.

18-09-2007, 02:22 PM

Got to agree with the other Pink Floyd fans,'Shine on you crazy diamond' takes some beating in the pre dawn light.

When your charging out to your favorite spot (Flat stick) ...... Iron Maidens " Rhyme of the ancient mariner":guitarist: :wut: ...... & don't kill an albatross ! ..... Nagg

Jimmy Buffett. No better fishing music in my opinion.


21-09-2007, 05:20 PM
Fin by Fin - The Drones
Greasy Grass River - The Black Crowes
The Endless Sea - Iggy Pop

Anything from Iggy Pop, Henry Rollins, Motorhead.
