I am in the position where my son is grown and has no interest, and neither does the wife.

Being new to Texas I have no friends here yet, and am going to be fishing alone for the immediate (and maybe longterm) future.

Just wondering how many of you folks regularly fish by yourself?

I prefer to have someone else with me,I find it's just not the same trash talking myself.

Fishing alone is peaceful. I go when I want, stay as long or as short as I like and fish wear I like. I put in a little later and leave a little sooner not to be that guy at the ramp..lol

Fish enough and you'll start seeing some of the same faces. Doesn't take much to strike up a conversation at the ramp.

I fish all the time by myself. the only time it would be better to have some one with u is when unloading & loading boat. if it isn't busy at the ramp no big deal.

A lot !!
I got tired of people always asking -- when you going to take me fishing ?? Then when I would get a trip planed they either couldn't go or would back out at the last minute or could not leave till lunch or half way to the lake ( I have to be home by 5) bang
Gotten to the point I would rather fish alone.. Leave when I want, change spots when I want, eat when I want go home when I want. That and my dog likes EVERYTHING I do..

And as long as there is room at the courtesy dock...I can load or unload faster than a lot of two some's..

Fish alone quite a bit of the time.

I fish by myself quite often. I found that when I get on the fish I don't notice that I'm alone. When fishing is slow, I wouldn't mind having someone else there to share the pain.

AHAHAHAHHAH

As stated above...after a while you'll see a few familiar boats and soon be able to strike up conversations on the water or ramp.

Me, myself and I.

Have a partner for some tournaments, but I am single, and go when I want. My promotion and this winter has been a cramp in my style. I usually go out every weekend, but I am having trouble getting up in the morning to be cold...

I used to work a bit of a later shift during the week, now I am there at 7am each day, so shifting a couple hours earlier on the weekends has been tougher than when I was getting in at 9. Go figure who_knows

90% of the time I am by myself, even fish team tournaments alone. It’s odd because I find myself to be outstanding company.

Enjoy the solitude!

By myself most of the time. As mentioned, it's great not having to work with other people's schedules. I fish some team tournaments as a single and still enjoy it, but there are times I wish I could have 2 different baits or techniques going at one time.

Also ocassionally wish I had someone elses boat to limit the maintenance on mine, but then I would have to put up with someone else choosing the spots and times.

I too, fish by myself about 95% of the time. Can load and unload faster than most and enjoy the solitude.
