Ok everyone, I thought this would be an interesting topic!!!
Do you have special"Good Luck" things you do before you go fishing to ensure you have good luck fishing?
For example-
I always feed my cats in the morning before I go!!!
I always have to wear my red Amesbury fishing hat!!!
I always carry a pocket watch in my tackle box, even though it does not work!!!
Do these things give me better luck fishing? I don't know? I just do them!!! :lol:
We all must have some!!!
What are your good luck fishing things or quirks you do?

I always stick a small American Flag in the ground.

And one sure fire way to catch lots of fish is to take the coooler out of the car and forget to put it back in!!!

Oh, Ya. For good luck, I try not to forget:

Bottle water
Rod, Reel & Line
Lures, Flies or Bait
Lunch, Supper, Snack
Coffee/Tea when its cold
Waders when I'm on the beach
VHF hand-held when I'm on the Boat
The guy I'm supposed to pick up at Park-n-Ride
Lock the boat trailer-hitch before I get in and drive away

It's hell to get old and forgetful..............................

I always stop a Dunkin Donuts for a large ice coffee before fishing. I always pack a lunch, but under no circumstances are any bananas allowed on the boat. B

This is a tip I do more out of necessity than anything else. As all of you know it gets pretty dark out there on moonless nights. My husband and I fish 6 or more rods and even with RED EYES on the rods I can't tell who's is whose. I always have a knapsack with different color glow sticks that I attatch to my rod spike, when I see the RED EYE go down I know it's mine.
And all the spikes get put in and then the rods before anything else. Somedays our chairs never come out of the bag!!

Check out your vehical before hooking up the boat and check to make sure the boat ramp is open.
Segway in to a fishing story gone bad.(absolutly true story)
My Buddy and I were going to do some work(fishing)in Boston Harbor one sunday in june.I know it's the worst way to get to the Harbor but I like to go down the Charles from water town.that way we can hit a littel fresh water action,stratizise about the fishing in the harbor and check out the college girls on the banks.so lunch packed,gear stowed,boat gased and hooked up.We left the house on-rute to the ramp.trafic was light most of the way untill we approched the roar that the ramp was on.CLOSED!they closed the F***in road for some sort of "walk for whatever".I thought my head was going to explode as I tryed to wave my truck and trailer through Watertown squar in realy tight realy pissed off trafic.Then as if GOD himself was trying to Make me go on a shooting spree,BOOM HISSS there gose my lower radiator hose.
Some times it's easer to laugh then cry

"walk for whatever"

That's a classic.

My story is not quite on topic, but fits with Pete's story -

One night last fall I was north of Boston trying to get to RI for some South County action. The trip only took me about 6 hours because some vehicle decided to dump it's whole load of dressers, mattresses, etc on 93 at about 4:30-5:00pm. I'm sure it was some college genius.

Anyway, after fighting traffic for 6 hours I get to my little hole in the wall hotel in Charlestown and they are closed. I mean, lights are off, door is locked, tough sh*t Charlie.

So, now I'm really not happy sitting in my car deciding what I'm gonna do. Out comes the owner (an Indian, from India that is) in his PJ's asking what I'm doing. I explain my situation and he gives me a key. AWESOME

So, now it's about 11pm, I'm totally beat and I have a choice to make. Do I call it a crappy day or do I risk life and limb on the breachway. It was a full moon, tide was right - I'm going fishing.

Turned out to be an awesome night. Very few on the rocks fishing, but lots of fish in the water to catch.

But man, up till I got that first hit - what a crappy day.

At least you got to fish.I spent the rest of the day looking for a parts store that was opened on sunday.and finaly fixing my truck.the ramp was still closed by then(around 2:30pm,started at about 9am)so we called it a day(or rather a nightmare)at least the beer at home was cold.
