The Fishing Hall of Fame Has Lots  of Tall Stories

Fishing is one of Florida’s top recreational industries and in Dania Beach there is a museum where there are more fish stories than anywhere else in the world.

The Fishing Hall of Fame of the International Game Fish Association is the Super Bowl site for global sports fishing. This is the place where all world fishing records are kept.

On the third floor is the E. K. Harry Library, the world’s largest collection of rare books and old films showing the history of sport fishing. The main exhibit room is, of course, filled with fish and fishing equipment, but the flexible facility also hosts lab programs, fishing camps, scout programs, and even birthday parties.

The Fishing Hall of Fame (954-922-4212) is located at 300 Gulf Stream Way in Dania Beach.
