The Lake Pro Guide
As a Guide you will qualify to save 20% off tackle, 25% off reels, and 30% off rods. You will be compensated monthly for making weekly video reports plus receive additional compensation based on the number of your reports that sell on a weekly basis. You will also be given the opportunity to help design custom lures branded with your name for your lake. Use the form below to apply or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional benefits for contributing guides:
- Name recognition as part of a growing national brand
- Another great way to book trips on an expanding web platform
- Get promotional materials to give away to your clients
As a Lake Pro Scout, you’ll call in a weekly report. The report should include an overview of the lake conditions with general areas and general lure types that have been producing catches, including what you think will be working for the upcoming weekend, taking into account any impending weather changes. You can mention the name of your guide service and your voice recording will be made available as a free podcast to the general public on lakeproguides.com.
We aren't looking for your “secret spot.” We are looking for you to help other anglers have a better fishing experience on your lake. To accomplish this, you'll need to post 5 short videos a week, averaging 30-45 seconds in length, detailing the following about each pin location:
- Water Depth
- Water Temperature
- Specific Lure
- Timing (Early Morning, Midday, etc.)
You'll also identify 5 lures from your list that are your go-to for the week. Once you're set up as a Lake Pro Guide, all this will take about 45 minutes each week.
What You'll Need to Join the Team
In order to accomplish your reporting, there are a few things you'll need:
- Smartphone with video capabilities
- Reliable internet connection
- A quiet place to record report (no music, television noise, dogs barking, etc.)
- A pleasing, logo-free backdrop for your videos
You don't need to always “shoot” your report in the same location, and it doesn't have to be inside, but it does have to be family-friendly, free from any advertisement of any kind, and quiet enough that the audio is crystal clear.
