(Tuesday, May 12,1998 - Lawrenceburg, TN) Charlie Brewer grew up in the small southern middle Tennessee town of Lawrenceburg. He was born May 16, 1920.

(March 10,1998 - Sam Rayburn, TX) Well, the 1998 tournament schedule is in full swing, and I do mean full swing. There has been a tournament on Sam Rayburn and Toledo Bend, every weekend since February 15th, and they are schedule almost as frequently for the rest of Spring and Summer, right up till late Fall. Don't get me wrong, I'm a tournament nut, and it is one of the biggest boosts to the local economies
(November 20,1997 - San Marcos, Texas) Little did the offshore sport fisherman think in late 1996 when the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act that this very reauthorization would--in the future--directly impact fishing opportunities. What has been observed recently is only the beginning as relates to fishing in federal waters off the coasts of the United States. It probably comes as a surprise to most fishermen that from November 27th, this year through December 31st, they will be unable to fish the Gulf for red snapper.
(Friday, August 15,1997 - ) The decline of fishing participation is well documented: In Ohio, for example, 368,000 fewer licenses were sold in 1995 than in 1990. And in Pennsylvania 100,000 fewer fishing licenses were sold in 1996 than the previous year. Michigan experienced a decline of 113,848 fishing licenses between 1990 and 1995. Nationwide, although fishing increased by 20% between 1980 and 1990, the number of anglers decreased by almost half a million between 1990 and 1996, according to the newly released National Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife-Associated Recreation.
