    we are starting the dresden boat ramp wednesday morning around 7 a.m. the plan is to get it graded this week and start the pavement next week. However, me being such a great thinker! lol i have plans on dropping my boat wed. morning around 4 a.m and fishing the morning bite. i figure a couple hours can hurt none in the morning.:lol: i have never had the opportunity to go fishing and dock the boat at the job site! so i thought it might be a good idea. what ya all think?

    I would have a hard time looking at the boat all day while I worked!LOL but then again if the fish are biting you might not make it in that day...can you call in sick with your truck and boat trailer in the parking lot?

    I have done a lot of brick jobs on homes over at the lake. Usually takes me a couple of extra days to finish, but sure did get a lot of fishing in. Some of the home owners even let us camp there while we did the work.

    Sounds like a good opportunity to me. It might make for tired days at work though.

    Sounds like a great idea! My first summer in college, I worked at an asphalt terminal on the bank of the Tennessee River in N. Chattanooga. I could have docked a boat at our dock---if I had owned a boat. I had to settle for keeping several throw lines out from the dock.

    Just wanted to let you guys know that I got old catfishrollo. He's been lucky having this job right next to his house with a boat ramp to boot, so I drove down to the boat ramp the other day when he was operating the roller and caught 9 smallies while he was working hard :wink:. I figured you guys would appreciate hearing that after this rough week of work (...errr fishing...or was it work???) that he's been telling us about. Ha Ha Ha
