Fishing License Sales Reports
Fishing license sales are a good indicator for the sportfishing industry of what tackle sales will look like in a given period of time. These reports, compiled by Southwick Associates, are based on license sales reported by 13 states strategically selected across the U.S.
The index is a cooperative project between the American Sportfishing Association and the Recreational Boating & Fishing Foundation.
