I used to drive to the north end of Lake Huron in Ontario every year for a long weekend of pike, walleye, and musky fishing. Id usually spend about $500 total per person (two of us) for 4 days fishing and thats on gas up, boat hire, cabin hire, food, booze, etc.
Plenty of places in Canada to fish on the cheap like that (or cheaper if youve your own boat). This was on the French River complex which is 13 hours drive from me, not too bad for a long weekend (just make the drive up overnight), and it looks like only 10 hours from Chicago.
Plenty of other places.
