What is the best fishing song of all time? We posted a story to our Instagram over the weekend listening to “Shut Up & Fish” by country artists Maddie & Tae. An all time classic, in my opinion, it tells the story of a girl just trying to fish, while her city slicker boyfriend just wants to make nice. A tale as old as time. We received a ton of replies, but it got us thinking, what is the best song about fishing of all time? My top 5 are:
Fisherman – Casey Ashley
Casey Ashley is a pro angler, and an awesome one at that. So, naturally, his song about fishing is an all time classic.
Bad Day Of Fishin’ – Billy Currington
It wouldn’t be a best fishing song list without Ol’ Billy Boy. The lyrics of this song are just about as true as any song of all time.
I’m Gonna Miss Her – Brad Paisley
This will probably be most people’s first choice for best fishing song. It’s an all time classic, and for good reason!
Fishin’ In The Dark – Nitty Gritty Band
Probably the “catchiest” song on the list (pun intended), Nitty Gritty Band knocks this awesome jam out of the park with some sweet guitar playing, awesome lyrics, and a karaoke classic.
Shut Up And Fish – Maddie & Tae
Maddie & Tae are relatively new up and comers in the country music scene, but with songs like this it won’t be long before they’re superstars. I love it.
There are tons of other songs about fishing, or just ones we like to listen to while fishing. We at Karl’s Bait & Tackle Shop know music is a “to each their own” type of artform, so we’ll ask you!
What’s your go to fishing music? And which of these is the best fishing song of all time? Let us know in the comments!
