I didn't mean to stir anything up, it just seems like common sense. If you have more non-resident fisherman coming into your state to fish they are going to bring along with them their checkbooks, which in return will bring in more tax dollars. The last Federal records I could find were from 2000 which showed 35% off all fishing licenses in Arkansas were non-resident. In Florida it was 45%, and in Montana non-residents were 60% of the revenue. Tennessee had only 21%. If Tennessee wants to become a true destination for fishing they need to look a little bit further than the license office.
