Everyone has their favorite fishing spot. But, where is the best place to fish in CT? While some cite beaches and others mention exclusive clubs, one town reigned supreme to the fishing experts themselves.
Darien Daily Voice reports that the town of Westport earned the title of “best fishing spot in Connecticut.” The quaint town not only offers expansive beaches, but also some of the best fishing charters.
This is all according to Fishing Booker, the top website for fishers and anglers.
For those who prefer fishing on land, Fishing Booker touched upon fishing at Compo Beach:
“It is a long stretch of sand that attracts thousands of beachgoers year after year. There are plenty of restroom facilities, beach volleyball, and basketball courts.”
However, if you love the idea of deep sea fishing, the website lists Westport’s finest charters HERE.
As for the kinds of fish you and the family will catch in Westport, Fishing Booker says there’s plenty of striped bass, scut, and flounder.
So, why did Westport beat out the entirety of Connecticut? Well, the agency took into consideration that fishing is a popular vacation activity. So, on top of good fishing, the website also looked into nearby family-friendly activities.
All in all, Westport is a hotspot for fish. If you want to try your luck, now you know where to bait a hook and cast off.
The experts say so.
That said, where’s your favorite place to go fishing? What’s your favorite fish to catch, anyway?
