Lone Ranger, you're remembering that sound travels 5 times faster in water than it does in air. Water is actually 800 times denser than air and sound travels easier under water so it travels farther and faster. I doubt that voices make the trip underwater because a great deal of the sound waves would be reflected off the water's surface. I would think that music from speakers mounted on the boat would be audible underwater because the vibrations from the speakers are tightly connected to the hull and the hull is in the water.

The real question becomes does it bother the fish? We already generate so much noise with our trolling motors, depth finders, and baits hitting the water the fish know we're around long before they see our baits so like Boat Cop says, it probably doesn't matter.

The next question is, if NedO2 or RookieBoy fall in the water and there are no fish around, do they really scream like a little girl? :D
