Mathers Bridge
Mather's Bridge connects South Tropical Trail on the southern end of Merritt Island to Banana River Drive in Indian Harbor Beach. It is a low concrete draw bridge with a fishing catwalk on either side. Probably one of the best places to fish from on foot as you can cover almost the entire cross section of the Banana River fron one shore to the other except where the actual swing bridge is. Editors note; I grew up fishing this bridge when it was an old rickety wooden bridge and the old Mathers Bridge Fish Camp was still there. Many memories of many fish!
