BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – The Space Coast has been named one of the best Thanksgiving Day fishing destinations in the country.
It’s easy to see how much we all have to be thankful for and there’s nothing better than spending this holiday out in nature surrounded by the ones you love, taking in some stunning scenery, and potentially hooking some world-famous fish.
FishingBooker has selected the top 9 Thanksgiving Day fishing destinations last year, and the Space Coast topped the list!
Why was the Space Coast featured on the list?
The Space Coast is home to cities such as Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach, with access to the Atlantic Ocean, the Indian River Lagoon, and the Intracoastal Waterway.
The mullet run takes place during Thanksgiving time, so species such as Redfish and Speckled Trout will be biting hard. A little further from shore you can have some amazing angling action on a speedy sportfishing vessel, and you’ll be able to target species such as Amberjack, Cobia, and Mahi Mahi.
Besides fishing, the Space Coast boasts travel experiences, educational adventures, and one-of-a-kind activities you can’t get anywhere else in the world.
