Does He Fish So Much That He Should Be Making Money From It?
A successful fishing guide that does over 300 trips a year knows that catching trophy fish is not top priority. One that swings for the fences with top of the line boat and gear will soon find himself in a mountain of debt and a lack of customers.
How many ‘Outstanding’ fisherman do you know that aren’t in the guiding business? Ask me how many fishing guides I have seen come and go that catch significantly more fish than most. And guess what, I book 10 times as many trips as they do and earn over 6 times their income!
How? I have developed proven strategies that ALL successful charter businesses need to run efficiently and book trips at the lowest cost. These unique methods were learned over years of working amongst the best fishing guides in the industry. From saltwater to freshwater, lakes to rivers, you are guaranteed to build a 6 figure charter business.

The Business Side Of Fishing!
Most guides who adapt my proven methods STOP FISHING! That’s right they don’t fish after the first year. In fact, many of the guides that book over 500 trips a year don’t fish at all.
And I support it 1000% and so does their bottom line.
You see a successful fishing guide that wants to make more than your average small
businessman cannot be fishing everyday, answering the calls, sending out newsletters,
writing fishing reports, etc. There just isn’t enough time in the day or energy.
However, with my strategies I make it all fun. I give you the option to fish or not fish.
Either way, we are going to make a lot of money together doing what you love.

Don't Take My Word For It, Hear It From Them:
"Captain Mike. Wanted to thank you for writing such an informative book. After reading “how to start a charter fishing business” I realised that I was missing a ton of new business due to an old and out of date web site. After communicating with you on what I could do to improve it, I decided to have you build a new one for me. Wow, the results were and have remained outstanding. I am overbooking now and having to hire other captains to handle my overflow and booking trips late into fall up here on Lake Erie when I usually ready to put the boat away. Thanks again for your great service and the extra cash in my pocket. Best Fishes. Jim Celebrating 35 guiding & 31 years in sports broadcasting!"
