Let's see, 3.39 gal diesel.takes about 12 gallons round trip in the old powerstroke. then at least 25 gallons in the old bayliner,at 3.09. throw in a cal.fishing license 37.70 +5.80 for bay/delta stamp. 22.90 for a 30 pack of Bud light. 6 bucks for a tray of herring, 10.00 to launch. 7.50 for toll to cross the bridge. Lets see.... if we get a 16# fish after fileting it 10# of meat. That goes into $184.65. ???? $18.46 a pound. It sounds like you are getting a hell of a deal!!! ;)

Halibut = $10.99/lb at my local market up here in the foothills, probably cheaper down in Sacramento but I don't like the traffic, the gangbangers or the boat thieves so I'll pay a little extra or spend the bucks to catch my own and not worry about the price for the pleasure of a day on the water.

boat insurance, registrations, maint, and month payments or storage.

Would you ALL QUIT, that I don't do the math for one very good reason!!!
I don't want to Know

If I figure out what it cost I would have a heart attack and never fish again. Except for next week or the week after.

That goes into $184.65. ???? * *$18.46 a pound. It sounds like you are getting a hell of a deal!!! ;)

$1/lb for me on Sept 1, 2006

launch 10
bridge toll 5
gas towing to HMB 15
gas to fishing spot 2
sack to put the big one in (my cooler was too small) 2

total $34. Halibut caught: #14 and #21 = 35
The head was good too so we really didn't waste much from that 35 lbs.

Saw some this weekend for $10.99 lb. Told my wife that I'm bringing some home when I catch em'. She said it sounds like a better deal just buying it now!! ;D Guess she knows the "real" price of catching your own fish. ;)

I like the calculations! ;D $18.46Lb ;D

On the real side, I fished Oyster Point yesterday and ended up with sharks rays and something that I could not identify! Overall, excellent day! :-/

The guys that launched right after me landed 2 halibuts (legal size) on frozen anchovies. The 1st caught right in from of the Oyster point Pier and the other near the A-Frame by the stadium in SF. So, it is true cause I seen them for myself! ::)

When I was a kid, we ate lots of fish during hard times because it was cheap. I remember my mother looking at pork roast that was selling for three pounds for a dollar and saying "I guess we'll be eating fish again."
