I don't.. just another cost of doing business.

Some spend hundreds a month in advertising.. I see no difference between "taking my time" or a Yellow Pages ad.

The goal is to make money how ever I can

So taking 6 hours doing a $5k bid is the same as taking 10 minutes for the same job?

Freshwater fishing is the only real fishing. It requires the most skill. Saltwater fishing is for guys that can't succeed in lakes, rivers and streams.

But as far as freshwater goes, fly fishing is actually pretty gay I must say.

no way the real fish lives in the ocean. It takes real brawn to reel one in from the ocean.

Thats a nice cod. The other factor about salt water fish is you have to deal with the weather if your on a boat.

Yeah but you still have the weather to deal with in freshwater as well. Freshwater is by far the more difficult to master. Any goon can go out on the ocean or bay or whatever and catch a fish. It's so easy a caveman can do it.

That's what I've been trying to tell you. You say you're willing to take whatever time necessary to bid a job correctly. But it makes no sense spending 6 hours to get a $5k bid down to $5 of actual cost.

A 200-a resi upgrade can be bid in less than 10 minutes. Anyting more is wasting time. And wasted time equates to wasted (or simply lost) money.

Anything that may have gotten missed in a $5k bid is easily made up in the 5 hours and 50 minutes you didn't spend getting down to that $5 of actual cost.

I honestly gave this thing a real shot and still dont like them. I use a screw gun for switches and outlets and then a small flathead trim screwdriver for plates. Dont really think its that big of a deal.

Jeez LouEaze, another beer please. Think it's about time this thread dies. If you guys want to carry your offsets, than so be it. You carry a can opener too?

No seriously, this thread proves that to each their own. So be it

It cracks me up to read the banter about fishing from a bunch of yankees. Bring your 14 weight fly rods and 20# class tackle to Florida. I can put you on big Bass from our lakes, and any saltwater species you want just off of Cocoa. I use 20# class spinning gear for Sailfish and Marlin and Yellowfin Tuna, and the fly rod for Tarpon. The amusing fact is I use heavier tackle for Bass fishing but because of the cover I fish.

But when I get serious I use a 60" freeshafting speargun by Spearfishing Specialities, and 120 cubic ft tanks.
