Ok, so I recently learned of the banana superstition. I was kindly invited to go out for the day on a friend's bass boat, and while packing my lunch I chose to bring a banana. As we started the day out, there wasn't much action and it was getting a little frustrating. So we decided to take a break and that is when I pulled out the banana.
Well needless to say, my friend told me to get rid of it, and then told me that was why we weren't catching any fish. I laughed, I thought he was kidding and then he told me about the superstition. We had a good laugh, but I was forced to finish it and dispose of the peel (properly). We both sort of laughed it off, but not even 5 min after we disposed of it, my friend caught a bass. After that the bass bite was on and had a great day on the water. So was it the banana or just coincidence?
So I was wondering what other superstitions people have when they are going fishing.
