    Sounds like it can be a tough job....like the guy who owns a Bait and Tackle Shop and never gets to go fishing HaHa..

    The life of an Ontario fishing guide isn't for the faint-hearted. 120 days on the water working twelve hour days can seem like a daunting task for many. But for others, embracing the guiding lifestyle can be a reward in itself.

    But the lifestyle doesn't come without its challenges. There are few breaks during guiding season, Beattie says, and twelve-hour days are the norm.

    "Pretty early mornings," Beattie said, "off the dock at 7:00 a.m., then a shore launch at noon."

    "Then we fish until five. Come back and I clean fish for the guys," he said, "then home by six or seven. It's an honest twelve hours every day."

    I do a lot of Bowfishing and it has been suggested I should take people out for a fee ....my response has always been that then I have to point the fish out for others to shoot ...you want to come along fine ,,,, but I'm shooting fish too !
