Make A Small Fortune In The Fishing Industry...

Written by A.J. Klott

Make Small Fortune In Fishing Industry... there is a headline you don't see very often.In fact, I have never seen it.

Unless you start out with a large fortune and slowly pitter it away while in pursuit of our friends who live beneathrepparttar waves, most people don't enterrepparttar 146366 exciting world ofrepparttar 146367 fishing industry to seek fame and fortune. There are rarely any recruiters from Salmon canneries knocking on your door as you bask inrepparttar 146368 glory of graduation from college, nor do you pick up a copy of Entrepeneur Magazine and find" fisherman" as a hot start-up franchise. Guys wearing lots of "bling" and chest waders rarely come sloshing into your business and hand you a business card and brochure claiming that: "for a $10,000 investment I can help you triple your income in thirty days...GUARANTEED!!"

In fact, I even googled "Make Money Fishing" and came away with 313 responses andrepparttar 146369 disheartening notion that if you choose fishing as a way of life--you are pretty much destined for a life of relaxed mediocrity. There of course are some exceptions, like tournament bass fisherman, or guys selling fishing adventures to Mars--but forrepparttar 146370 most part --if you have some startling epiphany that "I want to make my fortune in fishing"- you are barking uprepparttar 146371 wrong riffle.

Some other samples fromrepparttar 146372 make money fishing offerings:

1.Russ Roy-- Offers up a slightly "tongue in cheek" article, stating that we fisherman can earn extra cash slathering stinky fish attractants and fish "sputem" on our jeans and then resell them on perhaps ebay as "designer fisher wear". Complete with fish hook holes. I only say slightly "tongue in cheek"--because they probably would sell -- especially in some posh Beverly Hills boutique on Rodeo drive.

"Oh dahling, those salmon roe encrusted Jordaches make your tush look devine!!"

Heck, throw in a "roostertail" 1/4 ounce zipper and I might buy a pair myself.

2. A New England commercial fisherman is selling his fishing operation--He is "grossing" about $80K per year and claims a "cash flow" of $53k. Asking price $105k. The "hook" here isrepparttar 146373 benefit of leavingrepparttar 146374 rat race forrepparttar 146375 "open seas". I have to ask myself," does this mean he wants to re-enterrepparttar 146376 rat race??" Health issues force sale?? Wear funky woolen sweaters!
