Indian River's Shrimping Bridge

Thursday June 21, 2018

Simply the most consistant bridge to dip shrimp at on the Space Caost, the Oak Hill Rail Road Bridge or Trestle is a secure Railway providing access to the Kennedy Space Center and the Rocket lauch zones at Canaveral National Seashore.

The Rail Road bridge also marks the southern boundry for what many call to be the north end of the Indian River Lagoon with tributary Turnbul Creek and the vast sea grass flats and spoil islands. There's no denying that north of the RR Bridge has the makings of a world class fishing destination and waters.

Built as a supply bridge for the space center and connecting to Florida's East Coast Railway the drawbridge makes it a secure connection for foot traffic or other modes. This bridge is almost always in the upright position allowing boat traffic to travel unihibited almost continuously.

When shrimp start running you can find a convoy of boats anchored around the bridge dipping these tasty crustaceans for tablefare with generator and battery powered lights shining on the water. It's a fun night peering out into the darkness beyond your lights looking for orange eyes and swimming sealife.

The finest shrimping destination in Brevard County, Florida in Titusville also a swing bridge trestle for bringing supplies to NASA and Canaveral Airforce.
