It's probably going to. If for no other reason, just the uncertainty and weakness our our economy in general has me nervous. Nervous enough to make me think twice, even three times before I spend $$$.

I'm used to bombing all around, spending a ton on gas. I think overall, '09 will find me being a bit more cautious on what and how I spend my money, and what I do.

I could easily burn a gallon of gas a night jumping around the Canal. I think this year, it'll be more, drive to the closest access on whatever side I want to fish, and bike it from there.

 

I also know I'll be eating more fish this year, and probably not taking the summer off from shellfishing. Every dime I save on food, helps frown.gif

Fortunately I'm pretty sure my job is safe. They'd pretty much have to close down my school for me to lose my job.

 

But I've always fished on the cheap. This year I plan on using more artificials and spend less on bait.

If you work for anyone but yourself--your job isn't safe. Even if you work for the Commonwealth--maybe especially if you work for the Commonwealth.

Not yet, we had layoffs at work last week, I'm the last one in my dept'. Funny thing is, I keep praying we at least make it to May so I can fish the whole season without having to work. Haven't had that luxury since high school.

With the reduction in the cost of transportation of food relative to last year one would think food prices would have to go down ??? They have not ...price gouging by our farming brothers? should we start importing food?
