Is Destin the Ultimate Fishing Town in the US?

We may be known as the World's Luckiest Fishing Village, and be home to major fishing tournaments such as the Destin Fishing Rodeo and the Emerald Coast Blue Marlin Classic but Destin, Florida is angling for yet another accolade.
World Fishing Network is trying to find the best fishing destination in the US, and our South Walton city has already made the list. With voting open until April 8, the title is far from decided and both Destin residents and supporters of the town are being urged to cast their votes.
As well as being awarded the coveted title of America's Ultimate Fishing Town, the winning community will also receive 10 WaveSpin reels and $25,000 to be used for fishing-related local causes. Not only that, but the victorious fishing town will also be featured on WFN TV, helping boost tourism and the town's profile to a wider audience.
Last year, when WFN ran a similar competition to discover Canada's Ultimate Fishing Town, the Vancouver Island, BC community of Port Alberni took the accolade, the $25,000 prize money, and the incredible free publicity that the competition generated. Now it's Destin's turn to show the world just what we've got.
With the first round of voting open until April 8, you can help put Destin at the top. Simply visit the Destin nomination page at www.wfnfishingtown.com to find out more. After all, it's only fair that we let everyone else know what we've known for years – Destin, Florida is the Ultimate Fishing Town in the USA!
