In this episode of Realistic Fishing: Does everyone else think fishing is getting too expensive? Fishing wasn’t always for rich people! On this episode of Realistic Fishing I show off several fishing lures that were on sale and purchased at amazing prices. Just three years ago, you could find high quality fishing lures on sale for as cheap as $1.00. It doesn’t seem like prices are ever coming back down and we’re stuck paying $6 or $7 for soft plastics. I often see chatterbaits on sale for $16, and crankbaits for $10. I can’t bring myself to buy them because just a few years ago they were $4 and you could even find them on sale for much cheaper. I haven’t seen any good deals on tackle in the last few years. Fishing is getting too damn expensive.
