Love it !!   We canít wait for Indian Lake pike fishing next season.    Great pike action in the middle of Worcester is as good as it gets.

Also, major waste of money. A grand for a day of ice fishing. But Iím guessing youíre someone who wastes money on scratch tickets and cigarettes anyway.

Didn't know spending time and money taking the kids on a fishing trip, could be remotely classified as a waste?  My wife is right, yet again, I will "always" find someone with a different opinion then mine!

You can't take it with you. Spend it on what you love. I find myself needing nothing for ice or soft water fishing but for some reason I keep buying. I see it and have to have it. Damn internet. LOL ;D ;D

The fishing was good; it was the catching that was bad.

No I don't smoke or by scratch tickets Fishing is never a waist of money that why I get up every day and go to work. But to me golf is a waist of time and money. So with no ice to fish on lets go to Bass Pro and drop some money. All ways need the latest and greatest fishing stuff!!!!

2 days of fishing with one overnight in Maine last week

$100 - gas n tolls
$100 eats
$100 - bait
$100 - hotel
$40 tackle ( flouro ,hooks ,steel weights )
We finished with a nice sit down meal to reward and relax.  We needed to let Boston traffic settle anyway. 
$100 a day per person is a cheap vacation.    If this old goat could handle 3 full days straight , we would stay up for an additional day.

If you didn't care about the money, you wouldn't have mentioned it.

Was it a "planned" trip or a last minute idea?
Sounds like it might have been last minute.
