Bonefish have ears like rabbits.

There’s a picture! It’s true though, they can hear things you’d never imagine. Fish’s hearing is, of course, not the same as ours. Tiny villa in the cells along their lateral line pickup vibration and pressure in the water with remarkable perception. Among the things they hear are the sounds of your feet on the bow.

I always fish barefoot for that reason, but I’m still very careful about the way I move on the bow. Among the sounds that spook fish is the pressure of the boat’s hull in the water. If you rock the boat as you move and cast, you’re likely to spoil your shot.

Watch the video for tips on being quiet on the bow.
