Default Products and fish that recreational anglers prefer / Survey results

Southwick Associates, a surveying and polling firm, recently checked out the products and fish that recreational anglers prefer. The list was compiled based on the service that received 11,544 angler surveys in 2006.
The top freshwater species was bass, drawing votes from 60.4 percent of all freshwater anglers. The top saltwater species were striped bass (rockfish) and redfish (red drum), with each receiving more than 30 percent of votes from all saltwater anglers. The preferred fishing rod was the Shakespeare Ugly Stik (19.9 percent of all purchases) and the top reel brand belonged to the Japanese-made Shimano with 21.9 percent of all purchases. Orvis fly rods accounted for the most purchases at 19.5 percent.
The most popular fishing line was made by Berkley with its Trilene, FireLine, Big Game and Vanish brands that saw 45 percent of all line purchases in the United States. The Rapala brand was the top "hard" bait with 24 percent of all sales, while Zoom was the most popular "soft" bait with 15.4 percent of purchases. Strike King sold the most spinnerbaits, accounting for 21.5 percent of all sales.
How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.
