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

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....
Gotta go coax the mower in to life for the first time this year.
