    Have you ever been too busy to catfish? I run a construction business and while I am counting my blessings on one hand, the other is wishing it had a fishing pole in it:sad2:. Don't get me wrong I am very blessed to have alot of jobs going (wish they all paid more....) and hopefully things will stay on the upswing but I still would like to be fishing. Any of you guys ran into this dilema before, happy to have work but sad to miss out on your favorite pastime?

    Man Bill consider yourself lucky. I have been out of work for 3 months now with nothing in sight. I have lots of time to fish but little or no money to go much.:sad2: Just try to make time for it, like an appointment with Mr. Whiskers. He needs a new home in your belly!

    like I said, I am very happy to go to work and consider myself blessed to have jobs waiting on me, but I guess everyone wants everything done immediately so that leaves precious little time for Mr. Whiskers!

    Good luck guys in getting back into a job hope everything works out for you!

    I feel your pain Bill..........I work for a paving company IF I do get time to fish I usually don't when its this hot because I have been out in the hot blacktop all day. So I just stay inside in the central air.:smile2:

    I'm lucky. I retired in 2000. Worked for Uncle Sam for 30 yrs. The last 6 yrs of that I worked at night as a deputy sheriff. To much stress working for uncle, when they offered an out I took it and quit the sheriffs dept.
    I hope jobs start happening soon for the guys looking.

    Hi all! I've been lurking and thought this would be an appropriate thread to introduce myself on. I am finally fishing again after not having the time for almost 15 years.

    It's amazing how you "lose" something you loved to do because you get bogged down in what you should be doing, general worry and stress etc. Don't get me wrong, I'm self employed too and understand the demands placed on your time. Since I moved to a small town in Indiana I've realized there is more to life than worry and it's not the end of the world if the grass is cut on the 8th day instead of the 7th. So, for me begins a process of sifting thru the things that really matter, I'm grateful for the opportunity and also for the wonderful information on this forum. Of course, it helps having a neighbor full of wild fish tales and a photo album to back it up....he's promised to hook me up with a catfish so huge it dang near pulls me into the river! I can't wait!

    I'm to busy too but not from work but because I'm a family man..I'm the only one here who likes to fish and the rest of my family is back in Louisiana..I do work full time and drive an hour there and an hour back to get to work..And because I work 2nd shift and the wife works 1st shift I only get to spend time with my wife and kids on the weekends..They come before fishing of course..Hate to hear you guys are outa work..I had a few scares myself..My company slashed the workforce in half..Luckily I was spared..Hope ya'll land some work soon..

    I understand what you mean. I am a project manager and I will admit that for me to enjoy fishing, my mind needs to be relaxed for a few hours. I really don't enjoy sitting on the river bank thinking about nothing but current jobs or upcoming projects.

    For me, I would rather fish than eat, but I have to pay the bills. I just go when I can(which ain't enough). If I am off work I have the honey do list to work on also.
