Dodge grew up on a cattle ranch, and had his first experience in gold mining when he was eight years old, panning for gold in a creek, and eventually developing his skills in fine gold recovery. His first appearance on television was in season one of “Gold Rush” as a consultant on gold-finding equipment. He continued this with a brief appearance in season two before deciding to become a regular member of the show, so in season three, he became a cast member and started working with the Hoffman crew. He even participated in the show’s spin-off series “Gold Rush: The Jungle”. While “Gold Rush” mainly had them mining in the Klondike region, they participated in the spin-off because Klondike froze over, and so the whole crew and participants moved to Guyana. However the spin-off wasn’t successful in terms of the gold they mined, and they would return to Klondike for a season before trying their hand at Guyana once more. Regardless, Freddie’s net worth continued to rise.
A few of the more significant events Freddy has participated in over the course of the show is how he helped co-design the washplant for the Hoffman Crew in season three, and how he helped the crew in mining the QOD claim. One of the main reasons for Fred’s significant increase in net worth was successful mining of the Carmacks claim with his brother.
“Gold Rush” is a show that started airing in 2010. It follows groups of men as they try their hand at getting rich through gold mining. They’re mostly doing work in the Klondike region of Alaska and it has proven lucrative for all of them. The show often displays their day to day activities, focusing on their quest to mine enough to pay for equipment costs, and then hopefully realizing a profit. They also showcase the various techniques and technologies used to map and mine gold. Being a reality show, drama is also a focus, and conflicts in the group along with environmental obstacles are often shown.
For his personal life, Fred has been married to Lisa Dodge for over 28 years now and they have two daughters. He also enjoys hunting and competitive shooting, at times working as a coach for gun safety. It is known that Fred’s older brother, Derek is also a gold prospector featured in “Gold Rush”.
