Fodor's Review

This creation of the International Game Fishing Association is a shrine to the sport. It has an extensive museum and research library where seven galleries feature fantasy fishing and other interactive displays. At the Catch Gallery, you can cast off virtually to reel in a marlin, sailfish, trout, tarpon, or bass. (If you suddenly get an urge to gear up for your own adventures, a Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World is next door.)

IF YOU LIVE TO FISH (or just like to fish)

This is a pretty good place to visit. Right next to Outdoor World/Bass Pro Shops, we visited after an excellent fish lunch at Islamorada Fish Co in the Bass Pro Shop. The museum has a lot of interesting historic item on fishing, both individual, and some commercial. Additionally, there is a theater with film presentations, a practice casting center, an outdoor waterway to do additional practice, Earths fishing grounds, and reasoning why some fish

need 'protection' Unless an avid fisherperson, this would not be on the top of the list of things to see. But, on a rainy day with the kids, might be cheaper and fun to leave Bass Pro and walk over to the Museum
