5 Great Places to Fish in Italy

The Italian fishing culture has a long tradition of creating traditions that transcend the state and national boundaries. From marinades for fish served at Venetian buffets to Italian gobbets prepared in towns across the peninsula, the Italian history of cooking and serving up quality catches dates back centuries. It is the seafood delicacies and marvels of the sea which ensure that the air in the Italian canals, communities and holidays is full of fresh fish, fish sauces and grilled varieties. Below are my favorite places to fish in Italy. This is the good news, if the fighting is already going on between you and those creatures from the water.

Newport, Rhode Island

Borrow a boat from the Sam Adams Brewery or take the ferry from Brackett Island. This year, Newport reopened the San Remo Marina, which is an annual summer fixture for both residents and visitors. Every weekend from July to August, some 30 different fishing boats cruised through the waters of the southern end of Newport Harbor, welcoming boaters and more than 700 total visitors. Worry not about getting lost; keep your eyes peeled for the lamp posts. If you do not own a boat, there are rental boats and harbor taxis. (Tour the harbor, Southampton, R.I., at the boathouse bay, or spend a day at the Fish Fair or the University of Rhode Island Aquarium.) If you are adventurous, you can put on your own mask and snorkel and start fishing for your supper.
