    Would you pay the land owner, to fish a prime river spot from the bank?

    And if so how much for a night?

    I pay to charter boats, and pay at parks etc., so YES I would pay a land owner.
    Price would depend on many factors.

    We all pay to fish ,buying lic.bait fuel ,ramp fees or dockage ,so if i found a area ,to fish yes i would pay a reasonable fee to fish it ,kind of a lease or something along that line .Thankfully around here there is more water to fish ,than i can ever fish without that problem

    hell ya I would...everything else in fishing costs money...and to be able to fish in peace and not worry about broken beer bottles everywhere and everything else that goes with public fishing spots...put a price on that

    If it was a prime location, that I knew had big flatheads, I would pay 10-20 bucks for 24 hrs of fishing.

    Depends on how good the spot is.:smile2:
    Really, I dont see it much different than payin to camp, or use a ramp, which is almost everywhere in my state, at the lakes anyway.
    I wouldnt pay alot, but it would be NICE to have exclusive access, with no pleasure boaters or crackheads askin to bum a smoke.:eek:oooh::smile2:
    I would definately get something in writing if I were to do something like that.
    It would also be nice to not have to worry if the truck is safe. Most of the places I have to fish are out there, and thefts are common.:sad2:

    I think that would be a very FAIR price to pay Jack.

    A few dollars would be the max. Too much water out there to pay greedy people.

    I would pay to fish a spot, but only if i was sure it would produce some nice fish. A good friend of mine and myself are going to offer a guy money for a year of permission to fish his lake. It was a paylake back in the late 70's and 80's, and it is plum full of big fish. it is off limits to everyone, and he doesnt give people permission to fish sense it was bought out. so there is def some really large fish. we were going to offer him $100 and guarantee all fish to be released for a year of fishing. people do the same thing for hunting all the time, why not to fish. if you know its a great spot, you should try to settle with the guy over a one time fee though, pay per trip and you will have a lot invested.

    The MAIN reason I PAY to fish anywhere, IS to fish AWAY from the crowd. It PAYS to fish away from the crowds. VERY REWARDING.

    What's the difference in paying to fish or paying to hunt? If I had access to a prime, private stretch of bank, sure I would pay.

    Or you could get you a boat. :0a22:(that was a joke) LOL

    Right away if you notice that the landowner is gets greedy after you offer the dough make sure you dont say things like 20 bucks everytime I cross your land to fish. Instead just tell him you got 20bucks if he will let you fish on his property and BOOM nobody set limits on how many times you go there or anything like that and it should hold up in court if he gets mad cause your not paying everytime just bring a witness
