I'm not much of a fishing expert myself, but here are my tips for spicing up the article some more:
- Consider adding Allposters images to illustrate larger paragraphs of pure text. For example, I found this great poster on Great Lakes Game Fish which could add a bit of visual interest to your section about the available fish. You could make half-page modules and put them side by side.
Allposters modules don't always monetize well for everyone, but they are a great way to add highly relevant, attractive images in a perfectly legal and hassle-free way.
- Personally, I would not bold the text links. They already stand out through the dotted undeline and different text color and thus are recognizable as being hyperlinks.
- Consider moving the map a bit further up and centering it on the Great Lakes.
- With regards to the featured products; consider that the main topic of your article is about the vacation aspect. So rather than spotlighting fishing gear, it might be more relevant to feature maps and guides to the area. Vacation rentals could be another focus area of interest.
For example, vrbo.com (Vacation Rentals by Owner) is a VigLink partner. Try to find properties that would appeal to someone looking to have a fishing vacation at the Great Lakes, and then feature them front and center.
