The world is chock full of amazing places to visit if you love fishing. Each corner of the world holds its own odd, mysterious, large, small, poisonous, or downright ugly catches, and each pocket is waiting to be discovered. They call it fishing and not catching for a reason. It’s not always easy to get a fish on the line, in the net, or in your hand. If you’re into catching crab or other monsters of the sea, the task becomes even more toilsome as the labor and destinations get colder and more exotic.
Whether you visit to actually do some fishing, or you visit to see the landscape that is home to some of the best fishing in the world, here are places you absolutely need to visit if you’re into all things fishing:
Alaska is a land that is magical and dangerous in its own right. First of all, it’s huge. It is the biggest state in America, but it’s often hard to believe because when you see a map of the state, it’s usually out of proportion in comparison to other states. Being that it’s so huge and so far up north, the land is pristine as it comes in the United States.
Alaska has 8 national parks, so if you love the outdoors, it’s the first place you need to go. The rivers and lakes don’t end, so you’ll never be in danger of overfishing the waters, and since the state is so big and there’s so much wilderness to go around, you’ll never have to worry about hooking your line to another fisherman’s bait.
Summertime is a time that is full of fishing. The weather is great, the early mornings and evenings provide the perfect weather for catching something good, and you’ve got the time to lure in something good.
However, if you limit your fishing to the summer, you’re cutting yourself short. Fish do live throughout the whole of the entire year, afterall. If you really love fishing, are committed, and want to do something different, head over to Bald Eagle Lake in Minnesota during the wintertime and do some ice fishing. You’ll freeze your tush off, but maybe you can make a little igloo while you’re at it. That’ll be a fun story to tell the grandchildren.
Exotic and scary, perhaps, but if you love fishing, you can’t pass up going to the amazon basin in Brazil. With surrounding jungles and rushing rivers all around you, you’re bound to catch some pretty interesting things. Though there’s a lot of fear around piranhas, you can still catch them and eat them. Imagine having one of those badboys tacked on the wall for display.
