Susan’s Fishing Trip
Fishing… at Disney?? Yes, and what a great experience it was. Who would have thought climbing aboard a pontoon boat, and trolling the waterways of Disney would be more exciting than Space Mountain, but it was. It proved to be one of my most memorable and favorite things to do at DisneyWorld. I’m no fisherman, but my son was and of course this was his trip so… I booked the Fishing Expedition, leaving from Yacht Club Lighthouse.
We were met, and escorted onto a pontoon boat, by our guide who not only knew a lot about fishing but provided snacks! Being a non-fisherman he graciously baited my hook.. ohhhh worms, and helped me cast my first line. My son loved it as we trolled up next to the Boardwalk and people walking by yelled “there comes a big one”. He caught fish after fish, catch and release Large Mouth Bass. We spent 4 hours cruising, laughing and catching fish.The water was so clear they could be seen biting your baited hook. It was peaceful and a great break from all the hustle/bustle of the parks.
