I figure i spend probably $1500 or so a year for fishing.  I figure that includes all tackle and lures, bait, a few new rods and reels, license to fish, license for boat and trailer, parks fees,  gas for boat and car,  maintanence for boat, trailer and motor, food and drink while fishing. 

I am not including things like boat, motor and trailer, ice fishing shelter, power auger, underwater camera and things that are not (at least for me) annual expenses.

I think I am getting off fairly cheaply, since I never have been able to make an annual (let alone ever) canadian fishing trip. 

How do the rest of you fare?

Re: How much do spend fishing a year?

so far I am around $700 since March. This only includes tackle but not my license, entry fees, gas, food, and bait. Most I have ever spent a year on fishing stuff. No regrets.

Re: How much do spend fishing a year?

Dude, I'm not even gonna try to think about it.... The figures are terrifying. I'd rather just go with the flow and never question why I have so little in the bank.

Re: How much do spend fishing a year?

I have spent 600 this month alone so I will probably be pushing 2k for the year. That doesn't count the actual boat or hunting.

And I say my wife costs us a lot!?

WOW!!

This is a terrible thread... My wife is actually an accountant, she just told me yesterday while we cooking the bass and walleye that I caught probably cost us about $70.00 per pound. She says its based on what I have spent at Cabellas alone this year.

I hope that she doesn't find out about Gander or Sportsman's...... She will never mow the grass again... ;D ;D

I forgot to mention I am actually opening up my new Cabela's PT/ CSR fly rod I received yesterday by the great UPS man. Damn, my wife is going to KILL ME. I think I have a Cabela's problem, I need help. Oh ya, the rod is very, very sweet. ;D ;D ;D

This is a very good thread!  Now I can show my wife that my addiction is not so bad.  I can tell her "hey it could be worse you could be married to Slayerfish .......!"

I love this thread!

Dan

PS there are a few items I completely forgot about that boosts my total to probably $2500.

I spend so much at Cabelas they sent me the hard back edition. Thousands b/t tackle, gas, and boat upkeep.

This is why I advocate catch and release.

Re: How much do spend fishing a year?

It is expensive. Whoever said to their kid "you have more wishes than a fisherman's tackle box", has not seen my tackle box.

Now that I have everything I could ever need or want for fishing, in triplicate, I won't have to spend much money in the future... This is what I tell myself every time I look at my credit card bill.

Re: How much do spend fishing a year?

How much do I spend? Whatever it takes. I average 20 to 40 dollars a week just reloading the plastics, jigs, line and gas. (at 2 bucks a gallon, you gotta factor that in too.)
