  Platform question-Not asking for numbers or any specifics whatsoever, but... If one owned a wildly popular fishing website, could one quit their day job?

Not gonna happen. Ad revenue is poor at best. As time goes on people hate all the ads more and more anyways. You would have to sell product and good luck finding a source that will sell to you cheaper than amazon sells it for. E-commerce times are over unless you are making your own product.

Identify an owner and find out if he quit his day job ;)

The biggest turn off of websites are additional advertising- that quite honestly most have no interest in. Oh sure they may pay some of the bill, but at what costs?

One doesn't open "a wildly popular fishing website", they open a website and hopes it becomes wildly popular. Most don't, very few do.

It's all about the merch baby.  As in selling overpriced hoodies, swim baits, fishing shirts, etc.  If you can make a living doing that you are a true "influencer".

Youtube is where the big bucks are. Like the googans or that little kid that made 26 mil last year playing with toys.
