Freshwater fishing brings fresh and reliable profits

Profits seem consistent on the freshwater side of the angling community. It represents 90% of our world.

This story comes from Boating Industry's site, and is about the profits being garnered in the freshwater fishing side of the boating industry. Our site started - and is still largely focused - on freshwater fishing despite the fact that 90% of the anglers in the world actually fish in sweet water (sweet = fresh in case you didn't know it). To that end we know the size and scope of the industry, and know we need to spend more time there.

Freshwater Profits

Profits from the freshwater angling community are consistent and measurable. "Sweet" water fishing represents 90% of our angling world.

This story is proof. From BoatingIndustry.com:

If there’s one constant in the recreational boating industry, it’s that freshwater fishing boats always manage to sell. 

Even at the height of the downturn, freshwater fishing rigs were one of the few types of boats that continued to move off the lot – with some buyers joking that at least they would have something to do if and when their own job disappeared. And now with the economy once again firing on all cylinders, freshwater fishing boats continue to sell as consumers show new levels of confidence and manufacturers unleash an avalanche of new models and new features designed to leapfrog the competition.
