    DH fancies doing a spot of fishing during our next trip. Anyone here gone fishing near WDW, land or boat, we are open to suggestions.

    I've had a look at the official WDW site and got their info but it could be offsite too.

    I have not fished at WDW. Do you know where he is going to fish? Or are you looking for information?

    POR has pole fishing. Many of the other resorts have a guided fishing tour. All fishing at WDW is catch and release.

    Just looking for information Johnie. I'm probably wrong in saying this but I wouldn't have thought there would be much to catch in the WDW lakes so looking outside Disney too. Preferably calm water if on a boat so that I can join him.

    My grandmother was a guide for years at disney she was on the female bass angler pro tour there is a crazy amount of bass in those lakes it's expensive but worth every penny you will catch a huge fish 5+ pounds

    Some friends told me that they went to the lake at Kissimee where they did organised fishing trips from a boat Issy.
    I don`t know the name of the place but they took us there when they stayed with us at our villa a few years back.
    All I remember is that you can drive right up to the lakeside where they are located....not much use am I ? :ol:

    I don't know if Disney requires you to possess a fishing license but anywhere outside of Disney certainly would.

    I certainly hope for the very expensive guided fishing tours that Disney hosts that they would provide a license!

    I would think so Johnie, In Virginia you can either get a personal license (fresh or salt water) or you may purchase one for the boat so that all on board are covered. Most people down here on the coast do that.
