Stick with me buddy, I'll teach you well. Remember I have lots of free time to play now. You started earlier( younger) than I did, I'm sure you'll catch up. ( I'll show you how :D )The older you get the more toys you get.

If we are NOT counting gas to get to and home from our favorite icy haunts i got off easy this year, less than $100 bucks.
You can never have to many Vib-"E"s ;)

This year investment was light due to :
1. Already have everything ( older guys problem )
2. Shortness of season
3. Refusing to look at any more ice fishing catalogs
4. Watching my bait slowly die off that I bulk purchased back in December.
5. !@#$%^^&&*() WARM WEATHER

I just had to click in the 200-300 box... Looks like an average amount by the poll. Needless to say, I'm pretty anxious to get out and justify myself.

I too have everthing but I still keep buying and feeding my habit. Well over a grand also.

I didnt really spend a whole lot this year...which is nice. I spent plenty the last couple years....nice to have all the gear. But i did buy some new lures and jigs, and of course bait and propane and that kind of stuff. And i bought some of those white LED rope lights for the shanty, but i havent installed them yet. Im sure i didnt spend more than $100 this year.

Let's total it up - floation suit $180.00 ,New shanty $135.00, Power auger $280.00,a few new rods and reels $50.00, Misc. jig's and lures $30.00. Grand Total = $675.00. Oh Well It's only Money and you can't take it with ya. HOW DOES THAT SAYING GO ABOUT THE GUYS WITH THE MOST TOY's ???? My wife says I have WAY TOO MANY !
Sure hope we get some ice next month so I can play with the new toy's ?

My wife says if I don't have the most, the guy in front of me better not stop fast then!! Go figure.

I spent around 100 on ice gear this year. Sled , new combo , auger blades , jigs.
01-15-2006, 06:09 PM
Only spent alot if you figure in the gas! I probably spent maybe $150.00 in gear, because I had all I needed. I already owned all the big dollar items(shanty,Vex,Aqua Vu,etc) so most was spent on more jigs and such, a new Otter Sled, $50 something, but my biggest expenditure this year was the gas to get me there and back...I'm guessing close to $100.

No Ice + Too Much time to read and shop the internet = $$$$$$$$$$$$$

I am only at $50-$100 right now but if the weather improves it will jump by $600-$700. I am waiting to get my shanty, heater, etc. till we get ice or an end of season sale. I hate to pay full price and not get ice and see everything get marked down in another couple weeks.
01-20-2006, 12:40 PM
not much money this year. got a new rod and tip up. add in some bait and thats it this year. But with season over for now thats all I'll will spend. I may have to hit gander up for their close outs.

Out looking at fly rods today. Have almost given up on the ice.
