Fishing in professional bass tournaments is a hard way to make a living. In this third video of the Lakeforkguy background series, I explain why I don’t fish bass fishing tournaments anymore. I walk you through my transition from college fishing into fishing professional bass tournaments and the struggles that make it such a challenge. I also go into how I made a living as a fishing guide on Lake Fork in Texas. For a young angler, it was some of the best times I ever had on the water, but when I got a little older, I decided to take another direction into the outdoor industry that would ultimately be the best thing for me to create a family and spend time with them. I’m extremely blessed to be able to still fish in places all over the country and travel to new places of adventure in the outdoors and still make a living. For all of you young bass fishing anglers that are looking to go pro or work in the outdoor industry, I hope this helps bring some context to where this channel is now and where you might end up in the future.
