    I had to go to Deer valley friday and work all weekend to change out a 600 Amp. service "HOT". We would cross the Tennessee River two times a day and I couldn't fish all weekend, they should give me a big bonus or something for this. I mean I could have gone into convulsions or something, having to be that close and not being able to fish.:crazy: :sad2:

    Nothing like changing a service out hot. Sometimes it makes you feel you are worth every penny and more then you get paid.
    I did it for years without any type of hot gloves until age finally hit me or was it wisdom?
    I think about things alot differently now when doing something that is dangerous or could be dangerous.
    Kudos to you brother for keeping the lights on!

    I'm sure they wont biting this weekend anyway. Think positive man.

    That sucks brother, I am sure that it really killed you to see that water every day. I mean, to see that river where you know monster catfish live and could not fish it. All those big fish brother, and you just had to work. LMAO

    RIP if it helps there was a lot of guys fishing a tournament at Pickwick and lots of them did not even catch a fish.
    Now if you get up my way. WE will try to get a trip up. Would be a boat ride for sure. LOL
    Can't say I remember how to catch fish.

    RIP, I know what that's like. I was just visiting relatives near there, and didn't get a chance to fish aside from a small pond. I even bought a fishing license to fish the tennessee river. I just couldn't get a ride there.
