Passive Income as a Fishing Guide

Cover image

I’m watching Paw Patrol with my 3 year old son this morning. It's early spring and it's pouring outside. My customer this morning rescheduled their guide trip because he didn’t want to brave the rain (I don’t blame him). My phone buzzes in my pocket and I look down to a text that reads “Congratulations! You’re making money on FishTips!” I look at my son and smile, he smiles back and I tell him that I love him and that I love spending time with him! My phone buzzes again, “Congratulations! You’re making money on FishTips!”. I think it’s a reminder notification of the one I just sold and then I notice it’s a second message. And then it buzzes a 3rd time! I log into my seller's account on FishTips.com and see I’ve sold 3 tips this morning in the span of just 5 minutes. They were $143.75, $40.25 and $86.25 respectively and all from Fontana Lake! A tip that I had made from back in the summertime, one last spring and one from a couple weeks ago. I was so stoked! $260 of passive income from selling dialed in fishing tips/ reports this morning! Traditionally I would have just said “well I can’t make money today in the rain” but now there is a way for me to make secondary income using my acquired knowledge from years and guiding! In my first full year I have made $11,382.5! In Western NC of all places, where there are tiny lakes and a little tourism! PASSIVE MONEY FISHING!

To be fair it’s not entirely passive, it takes about 10- 15 minutes to make a tip after a guided trip or at night after I tuck the kids in, while my wife is in the shower! I am disciplined because I know if I just keep putting tips up they will sell, some sell in the first few minutes of posting, some sell months later, but recreational anglers value quality information from guides! I have posted the most tips on the platform (I think) and I have made the most money to date (I think). If you’re a guide, consider taking 10 minutes after a trip, or when you find yourself doom scrolling on social media, if you invest 10 minutes of productive time after a guide trip or a couple times a week, you can make some SERIOUS money utilizing FishTips.com. It’s a platform where guides like me and you scale our businesses and make passive secondary income selling “digital guide trips and tips”. We are going to Alaska as a family with money we earned this year on FishTips! What will you do with yours!?
