    I'm 15 miles from the nearest ramp on the Missouri, so it costs me more to get to work each day than to go fishing!

    Yea, it might cost me $3-$5 a fishing trip, since the river is under 3 miles from my house. lol!

    My cost would depend on weather I take the money out of my wifes piggy bank or mine. Her interest rate should qualify as illegal. I can run to either Ohio or Miss. river for about $35.00.:big_smile:

    only as much as the snacks I bring! The pond I fish is only 2 miles away, and the river is only 5 miles away, and I use a kayak, so not much at all. But if you were to add up all of the $ I've spent on fishing equipt. this year it would be more than I'd want to admit.

    Not nearly what it is worth to be out with the boys, but we could eat lobster cheaper than the fish I catch.

    It's at least 2 hours to any decent fishing spot (James River or Kerr Lake) from my house. So gas runs about $30-$40 for the truck. My outboard sips gas, and averages around $5-$10 per outing. Plus, I haven't learned the cast net yet, so another $5-$10 for bait. Plus avg $15 for food.

    It sure does add up fast. Looks like it's costing me $55 to $75 per trip, of which my fishing partner usually covers about $20.

    Not to mention every time I go fishing, I think of something else I absolutely "must have" for my boat or fishing tackle collection. So more money there.

    But hey, every man must have a passion and something to throw their money at. Why else would we work.

    It's probably about $20 to $30 for gas, snacks and drinks.

    If we start adding in tackle and stuff, I don't know. How do you split up the cost of a boat and all the rods, and such? A lost rig is probably another 30 or 40 cents, so I guess tht doesn't add much.

    Anywhere from $30 to $75 depending on how hungry I am before we leave. $20 in gas, plus food, and drink. Normally bait is free, but lately the shad have been elusive, so we've been paying for inferior bait, and I don't like that at all.
