I was reading an article, out of Texas, I think, and I found these facts pretty interesting...

The three states with the most anglers are Florida (2.77 million), Texas (2.52 million) and California (1.73 million).

The top three states in terms of jobs supported by sportfishing are Florida (75,100), Texas (59,000) and Minnesota (43,100).

The number of anglers is greater than the population of California.

One out of every three anglers fish for largemouth bass, America's most popular game fish. Flounder is the most-targeted saltwater fish.

One of every 7 people fished in 2006, making it more popular than jogging or golf.

Forty-five percent of anglers come from cities of one million or more people.

Fifty-one percent of anglers have a household income greater than $50,000 per year and 17 percent have incomes in excess of $100,000 per year.

Over half of all anglers have attended college.

Twenty-five percent of anglers are women.

Nearly half of all anglers are between 35-54 years of age.
