Fishing Songs

Recommended Posts

Howdy All...

A while back I heard of a group of folks from Wisconsin(?) that had recorded a CD of popular songs with their own fishing lyrics added. "Little Walleye" was one of them. I think that was a take-off of a Dixie Chicks tune.

This may not be the group I'm thinking of but turn on your speakers and give this a listen... (183kb, takes about a minute to load)

So does anyone know of who I'm talking about, a place or site where I could get the CD, or any other CD's like I have described?

Thanks......Dan

Hey music lovers!
Check out Fyder and Everhart "Goin' up North". My brother-in-law discovered their CD in a gift shop in Cook 3 years ago. It really hits the spot when you're longing for songs that talk about the things you like best about the northwoods. They also have a HSOforum http://www.fyderandeverhart.com/. I think you'll enjoy it.
...to the tune of "Rawhide"
"Trollin, trollin, trollin. Lakes and streams are swollen. Fingers nearly frozen. Walleye!
Through wind and stormy weather, we're in this boat together, six-packs lures and leeches by our side.
I've been drownin' shinners, searchin' with depth finders, tryin' to get a big one on the line.
Cast em' out, reel em' up. Reel em' up, cast em' out. Cast em out, reel em' up, Walleye!...(you get the idea)

I have never heard of that CD, sounds pretty good though.
I have made up some of my own fish songs though, like

"It Was a Bullhead" to the tune of
"Wooly Bully"

"12 pound carp" to "12oclock rock"

"Rudolph the lunker Walleye"

It took a bit of work. Like setting up an old (and I do mean OLD) computer system in my basement, but I found it.

The group is called "Shad-Rapp". Sort of fitting isn't it?

Have you heard of any others?

There is another version of the Rawhide theme song made by the Hula Poppers. It is called "Walleye" The only place I have seen it is in the Kettle Falls Hotel Bar on Rainy lake. Fishmeister from The Rainy Lake forum might have an idea where to get it at. I also would like to know where these songs could be found. They would be a fun conversation pieces for the boat.

dan97, I am a big shad rapp fan...and I dont believe they sing the Little Walleye song. Its a great song and I want to find out who does sing it. And, its a take of a SheDaisy song, not dixie chicks...they all sound alike. Check out www.shad-rapp.com for all of their tunes.

My bad. SheDaisy, Dixie Chicks.... You're right, they do sound alike. Alright!!! Simmer down you country music fans. It's been a while for me, so have a heart will ya.

Yeah, after listening to a few Shad-Rapp clips and the Littiewalleye song, they sound a bit "different" to be from the same folks. I'm going to order all the cd's from Shad-Rapp. Just to have them, ya know. They'd be some great tunes at FM gatherings, eh?

I have a copy of the "Walleye" song on a 45rpm record. Remember those? I also have it on my hard drive. I downloaded it when Naspster was still around. If any body wants to download a copy you can go to my web-site and download it from there. I have a spot where you can click and listen to it. You should be able to right click the link to the song and then save it to your computer.

I would like to find a copy of the "Electric Fisherman" if any body has a copy please e-mail me.

KFGO in Fargo is always playing these songs. I think I heard that Dave Lee (?) that use to be on the station and is now in the cities is one of the singers. But don't quote me. But I am sure if you called KFGO or tried their HSOforum you could find out. Or you could try http://www.123fargo.com for Froggy they might know.

The CD's go with me on all fishing trips and are definitely played at the hunting shack during deer season. If you ever find out who sings the little walleye song, let me know. Thats a GREAT tune.

I also have a copy of the Hula-Poppers 'Walleye'. I noticed the rhythm guitar and background vocals were credited to Larry Hayes. Isn't Hayes Tackle Plus on Lake St., Mpls. owned by a Larry? The record was released by Shadow Records on West Lake Street, Mpls. in 1986.

Have to enter my plug for Fyder and Everhart's "going up north"...Ted and Glen played at Arrowwood in Alexandria every wednesday...never missed 'em a few summers ago...Glen still plays it. It's a great album..."opening weekend" is a great tune too. "i could grow old in ely" is a crowd favorite too.

and let's not forget Andy Griffith and "The fishing hole"....the theme song does have words!...

    • Well yesterday marks 10 years of craziness on this web page for me.  The time has gone by fast and I have met a lot of great folks along the way. I tried to do a slide show but I’m just not that good on that stuff so here is a long group of pictures of just some of the folks I have met and enjoyed fishing, GTG's and sledding with from this site. There were many more met at GTG’s and other fishing and sledding trips but I just didn’t get pictures of them all. 🙁 Some I met just for one outing and others I have done many trips with over the years. I joined to mainly “Leech” fishing and hunting ideas and spots off all you folks but instead I met and had great times with a lot of you.  Meeting and getting out in the Outdoors with folks is what this site should really be about along with sharing ideas.  Here’s to the next 10 years and all the adventures to come! 🙂 Leech~~ Matts.bmp J's fish.bmp
    • Foam may give me a couple extra days. I try to pull the shack ahead for fresh ice every two to three weeks.    Alot of times I have to move due to a heavy snow fall or warm streak. As the weight displaces water caused from the sagging ice sheet underneath me.    Nobody ever said living on A floating ice cube for two months straight was going to be easy or smart.    
    • what garmin do you have?  garmins lake maps here: https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/p/125128#devices
    • as some of you know by the various topics I"ve posted on different ice house questions, you've guessed this is my first year with one, and thanks for the responses so far.  another question, how long are you guys getting to run your ice castles on just a 12 volt group 27 power supply? the other night, i was getting some stuff ready, had the heater running, lights, and radio. about 15 min later, my 3year old co/propane alarm detector was throwing the low voltage alarm. I always have the battery plugged in with the built in battery maintainer ice castle provides. so i thought the charger may have been shot, tested the battery with a 12volt tester and everything was good. hooked up a different charger and that read full battery.  so I turned the heat off and the radio with the 15 sec beep going and it stopped after i had just the LED lights going. I called the manufacturer of the co/lp alarm and she said the low voltage goes off at around 10volts. the battery is 2 years old.  next thing i did was swapped batteries with a 1 year old battery, ran everything the same for  a good 40 minutes with no low voltage alarm going, so now I"m thinking my 2 year old battery cant handle the load high enough for the alarm to go off even though the lights are bright and no sign of being weak.  so long story short, how long should i be able to expect to have my lights, furnace, and radio on-granted my current battery is good to go? I'd figured it would be nice not having to run the genny at night if i can get away with just the furnace and no dam low voltage alarm waking me up at night
    • That's interesting. I would believe fish gorge themselves then go a day or two without eating.  They probably don't eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and second dinner like I do!
    • If you're confined to the sleeper then your results are going to be hit or miss and your odds of a really epic day aren't very good.  You'll probably catch some fish in the sleeper but I have yet to experience a truly great day by just staying in the sleeper.     Like others have said Cookies on Red Lake is a good option.  I've stayed with him before and he moved the house for us on Saturday afternoon when we only had a handful of fish by then.  The bite didn't pick up substantially with the move but its nice to know the guy is doing everything he can to give you a good trip.   I haven't stayed with Johnny P at Red Lake Remote but I've heard nothing but good things.    I think if you explained your experience to any of those guys they'll do their very best to give you an epic day but of course they can only do so much.   Do you usually come up with a bunch of other people or by yourself?  Maybe there is a way to get you out in a more mobile set up where you can go punch a bunch of holes and go find the fish.  From my experience there really isn't a trick to fishing Red Lake its all about moving around drilling lots of holes until you get on them.   Just find a spot without anyone else around and start drilling.  
    • i'm hoping santa brings me some!!!!!!!!!!!! but i've been told i havent been all the good the past year!!!!!!!!😩
    • Plan on an archery tag again this spring.  Only Minnesota, hope to someday hunt a Merriams somewhere.
    • not sure how accurate this is, but i read once that a fish will eat its weight once every 3 days????????????
    • I was at Cabelas over the weekend and they had a sign at the fish tanks with the feeding schedule. They only feed them 3 times a week, and there are some really nice sunnies and crappies in those tanks. Made me wonder how often fish actually eat. Also gave me a great excuse for all those times I go out and get skunked.
