    12' alum Jon boat = Electricity for for 2 deep cycle batteries (trolling motor)

    14' alum Jon boat = 6 gals gas plus electricity for one deep cycle

    24' Stamas cuddy = 180 gals gas plus offshore bait and 2 days worth of
    consumables.

    Cheap fishing mostly unless I go out for the big-un's

        $16,500 plus fuel and bait. I haven't used the new pontoon yet! Looking forward to the second trip as that one will only be $8,000 plus gas.

          LOL -
          50 Gal boat fuel @ 3.62 = $181
          4 Gal truck fuel @ 3.62 = $14.50
          4 bags ice @ 2.00 = $8
          2 flats herring @ 5.00 = $10
          2 cartons squid @ 3.50 - $7.00


          Grand total - $220

          Getting skunked on halibut and feeding all your bait to the dogfish sharks - priceless.

                Boat fishing:

                Drive to lake, 10 miles from house, pulling trailer: $8.00
                1.5 gal. fuel for 6 hp engine: $5.25 (will last about 4 hours fishing, or more.)
                Oil for 6 hp engine: $0.25
                Charge trolling motor battery: $0.05

                Catfishing on river:

                Drive to river in compact car: $2.25

                That's it.


                So, it's under $14 for a day's fishing on the boat, or the price of a cup of cofee to sit on a public dock, fishing in the Mississippi. Lots cheaper than blood pressure medicine, I think.

                Sure...go ahead and laugh at my old aluminum boat. It's paid for!

                      With beer and lottery tickets probly $25 at the most, we always get $5 worth of tickets, anything we win goes in the tackle box for the boat, still trying to hit a new trolling motor, we are going tommoro so maybe....

                            Using current Flowood, MS gas prices:

                            Pulling bass boat with Titan, 6 mile round trip = $3.42 * .5 gallons = $1.71
                            Running 150HP Evinrude on Skeeter SF-175 = $3.61 * 2.5 gallons = $9.03

                            This does not include charging 3 batteries, 1/2-3/4 jar of crappie power bait, oil, food, and other fishing needs or supplies.

                              Shad caught with cast net = FREE
                              Maybe 2 miles to the closest ramp , 8 to the farthest , so , $3.50 tops for the XJ .
                              Dig some wigglers for backup , again , FREE .
                              Minnows , maybe $7 .
                              Crickets , FREE ( requires short expedition under house..)
                              Snacks , drinks , sandwiches ~ $15 , more for a long weekend .
                              Fuel and oil for boat = $6.50 per outing , figuring a 6 gallon tank with 50:1 premix lasts about 3 trips .

                              Not really all that worried about WHATEVER it costs = PRICELESS .
