I got in on the tail end of that other thread, so no one has attempted to answer my questions. So I copy and pasted what I wrote yesterday. How do you figure it?? In 1999 I spent 11k buying boat and such. Then about 500 or so a year. Last year it went to a grand easy as I got the 9.9 kicker motor for the boat. This year boat got a new generator and 2 new lights. 2 new fishlocaters so I have easily hit that 1000 mark again. Then do you count the truckcamper????? I needed that to stay at the lake and fish. Heck I got a generator for it too this winter. Now I can have microwave popcorn fishing. LOL You folks need to define money spent on catfishing better. Then do I subtract the money spent on going fishing for shellcrackers?? What happens when I catch a cat and I was going out for bluegills and shellcrackers?? Do I add or subtract from the fuel and bait cost??. Where do I put the hundred I spent at Cabellas yesterday?? 13 dollars of that was two of those folding chairs??? Can I sit in them at camp and not fish??? What happens when I carry them by the lake. Is there a formula for figuring all this out. I'm so confused, I think I'll just not worry about it and go fishing. By the time I get this all figured out it will be spring. :smile2::big_smile::smile2: __________________ Be Ye Fishers Of Men.
