Outdoor Chef Life FAQs (April 2023)

Boat Name


Cast Members

The Boat




Fishing Spots

Many of their fishing spots remain a closely guarded secret.

Affording It

Taku is a chef by trade and would go fishing on weekends.

He started uploading content to YouTube and it instantly became popular!

Net Worth

Today, he’s much more wealthier than we assume!

As of 2023, Taku Kondo of Outdoor Chef Life has a net worth of $2,200,000 USD.

This is based upon the value of his San Mateo home, 4×4, boat and online business.

Making Loot

Outdoor Chef Life makes around $7,200/month on YouTube, so it’s a full-time income for them!

This is earned mainly through:

➜ Ads that play on his channel

➜ Numerous brand sponsorship deals

➜ Sales of his official merchandise

He’s not too commercialized with his content which is great.


I have seen him on numerous other channels in both the fishing and van life worlds.

Future Plans

Where to next? Well, if isn’t broken…he won’t fix it!

That is to say that Taku will continue in his stride.

YouTube is working remarkably well for this chef!

Key Takeaways

What can we learn from his journey?

➜ Remain humble, even if you become wealthy

➜ Be yourself and simply film your adventures

➜ Open your mind to exciting opportunities online

➜ Surround yourself with really cool people

And create useful and unique content that your audience will LOVE!


I love Taku’s channel as much as the next person, and I hope he continues this trend for years to come!
