Have you ever wondered what it would be like to turn your favorite hobby into a career? Would that be a dream come true or would it turn the thing you love to do for fun into a nightmare? In this episode we will show you what that just might look like.
For Scott Collinsworth, owner of Fort Peck Marina and one of the top guides in Montana it turned out to be a dream come true! But it was not without it's challenges and it took more than just him, for sure, to make it happen. Scott will give you a very rare look into what it is REALLY like to be fishing guide! Scott shares how there was no way he could have done it or keep doing it without his incredible partner and wife Jessica. Scott also shares with us what some of the day to day challenges are and he shows us the funnier side of being a fishing guide on Fort Peck Reservoir. Spoiler Alert! He is a bit of a prankster. You have to hear about the prank he played on the Captain of the Montana Outdoor Radio Show, it's pretty damn funny! You will also learn what are the best species of fish to target and when to do that for every season of the year on Fort Peck. All that and that and so much more is waiting for you in this week's episode of the Montana Outdoor Podcast!
