Default Best fishing town in America?

So I stumbled upon this awesome sounding contest where a winning town gets 25,000 bucks to develop fishing in the area if it gets enough votes, and a whole bunch of awareness about it. It's over on the world fishing network site: http://www.worldfishingnetwork.com/c...-town-USA.aspx.

Looks like the contest runs country-wide, and there's one in Canada too. I recall it being a big deal, a town in BC won. Be interesting to see who wins this one, I'm pulling for a smaller town that really needs the money!!

Tangier Island VA. There are tons of small bayside fishing communities that are dying out with the collapse of Bay fisheries, but this one is unique because its on an island. The folks there have a very unique accent that is somewhat elizabethan english. The fishing in the area is spectacular

Montauk, NY. But I doubt $25,000 would do much to enhance it.

Key West for sure. A very good mix of offshore for Tuna, Sailfish, Dolphin, Kingfish, Snapper, Grouper and Wahoo. They also have excellent inshore fishing for Bonefish, Tarpon, Permit and if you make some runs you have Snook and Redfish too!

St Augustine for sure. Like a fishing theme park that serves a lot of beer.

Maybe, but we also get Blackfish, Sea Bass, Porgy and Summer Flounder inshore and Tuna (Big Eye, Bluefin, Yellowfin and the small ones), Shark (Mako, Thresher, Hammerhead and the less desirables) and Dolphin.
