I am just currious about what some of you do for work, if you still work, or are most of you retired, lol. I try to make it to a lake once a week, but it seems as if most of you live on them.. I am jealous lol. Still waiting to run into some of you, well not literally just meet you all. I want to say thanks to all of the rest of you that have responded to my posts.

I work 40 hrs a week and I try to go to the lake at least once a week, however I do not have a boat so I usually have to backseat with Bayou. I think all these guys are old enough to retire :wink: :lol: but most still work. I would love to go out as much as some of these guys do. I have met some of them and all I have met are really nice. Great bunch of people post HERE.

I owned a decent size aerospace shop and had lots of employees, so I got to fish almost every day for a few years. I shut it down last year in april. Too much hassle not enough work out there due to the economy going down the tubes.
Even though I still fished everyday I still put in 10+ hours at the shop mainly at night in the winter and in the day in the summer. Some times I wouldnt come home except to take a shower eat a good hot meal(other than pizza) and see the kids.

Fished everyday almost up until dec 1 of last year then stopped for a while(only going out once a week then) . now I am starting to fish again.

Played with boats for a long long time.

I'm 38 years old, a gemini, I like long walks on the beach and puppies........oh wait this isn't one of those personal ad sites? :oops:

Ok, I am 38. I'm an Aircraft Mechanic for Southwest Airlines (hence the SWA plug after my name). I'm also the Treasurer for the Aircraft Mechanics Fraternal Association Local 32 which takes up more time than I'd like to say. I only get to fish about once a week. These are great guys here and you will learn a lot! Keep on posting and learning! I know I continue to learn from these guys and gals.

I was a dick, Oops I meant detective. Then I found out to much :shock: So I took a less stressful job with a mining company. :lol: I only work 15 days a month now so I get to fish a little more. I also do a fishing report on the radio. I used to fish tournaments, but the divorce took the play money. I will probably start doing a few tournaments this year.

Rob and I have a construction company, mostly remodel and I do the paper pushing and try to keep all the pcs up and functioning. I teach 3rd-5th graders on Sundays and LOVE it! Great kids. I'm a softball/basketball mom of 2 kids, 2 dogs, 1 cat and 1 frog. :lol: We try to get to the lake at least once a week and sit and look like we're fishing - the fish get a real kick out of it. :x And then there is maintaining a website and reading fishing boards......I always have plenty of extra time! :wink:

I am 42 and work in the medical field 12 hour shifts though during the summer it slows down and I sometimes only work 2 day's a week which can be very detrimental to the paycheck! I fish one to two day's per week. I have met and fished with many of the posters here and have never met a nicer group of people. Fishin3 I will remember that Comment! :lol: .. if your brave enough my back seat is usually open on mondays! :twisted: ..bring your own duct tape.

I'm 68 and used to do tournaments. My Stratos was costing too much so sold it. Am now a backseater looking for a back seat.
I do some outdoor writing, publish a "Winter Visitor" season newsletter. I am the only volunteer fishing instructor in my county (Pinal) with AZ G&F. Taught and took out over 2400 kids, adults, handicapped, etc. in last 3 years.

I am self employed for the past 7 years. Up until 2 years ago owned a computer company in Tempe. Had way too many employees and not enough fishing time. Now I work from home for the last 2 years in Internet and Business marketing. Was able to fish 2 to 3 times a week until the kids started school. Now I am waiting for the Fall bite to turn on so I can catch fish after 8:00AM in the morning. I hope this is soon! I am going thru withdrawls :cry:

I am 35 years old and have an insurance agency. I work multiple states from the internet at home. I try and fish once a week,maybe twice. Now that you know how often I go and don't see any reports, I am embarrassed to post the skunks. I really have been struggling. I'm going to Obregon in November. I need a confidence boost. I may not be alone though, it looks like there is alot more time on the water than posts.

I'm almost fifteen and I'm a Freshman in High-School(felt like playing hooky today :wink: . Actually I'm a good kid when it comes to school, I'm home sick today). We purchased a boat just over a year ago and I've done nothing but fishing since then. Even though I only get out once or maybe twice a week I spend the rest of the week reading fishing articles or looking at pictures of my future bass boat. Sometime in the near future when I get some experience and I'm old enough to be in a bass club and I have a liscence I'll start fishing tournaments to start my quest to my ultimate goal which is fishing for a living and never having a real job.

Josh, Don't listen to Franlin! I did the AF for 4 years. Yes it was the best thing I've done, but I'd have still been in if it wasn't for that durn Graham/Rhudman Act. Long story with cancelled orders.

If you're going to do the service thing, then definitely go for the AF, but if you're doing good in school definitely move on to college and then some!

No offence Franklin. I'd be flying if it wasn't for that durn act!
