Tried it once and really didn't work out.
Years ago (in another life!) when I lived in California I had a 30' sport fishing boat. Licensed it commercially and got my captains lic. Used to take clients fishing and then commercial fished for rock cod. Barely broke even and worked my butt off. Bad part was I had a family and had no medical insurance. Could'nt do it now...too many fishing restrictions commercially.

I also chased another dream pre wife and kid. I had 3500 to burn. I hit the practice pen and roped my ass off everyday after work. Turned steer after steer team roping. until I literally couldn't miss. A couple weeks went by and I found a circuit that was 80% payback. I hit the road and didnt read the fine print. Its 80% payback based on 100 teams. (100 teams never showed up) the 10k for first place wasn't happenin. After six weeks of pounding pavement and sitting 1,2,&3rd in the series I was outta of expendable cash. Back to work I went. Scored a bunch of bob berg buckles but still hanging pipe.
Since last December, I've been proofreading and editing the articles in the Eastmans' journals - I was reading the magazines anyway. Now I have a hand in how well they read. I love it. Good people, too.
I used to guide fisherman for Walleye when I was 16 for a guy that knew I could catch Walleye. I got $100 a day and thought that was a pretty good deal being as young as I was, but when it became a job it just wasn't fun anymore. Did it for the summer and that was it.
