I am looking for someone to split a Fishing Excursion the one leaving at 7 am is the one my husband is interested in it is 2 hours and the cost is $250, this is the same price if you have 1-5 people so we were wondering if anyone wants to split the cost on this, if we get 5 people then the cost will be $50 per person. We will be there from Dec 6-15 so if you are interested in any of those days I can make ressies and we can meet at the marina and go out. (We are staying at the cabins)
A link to this is here http://www.wdwinfo.com/recreation/fishing.htm


Thanks Kathleen aka Mousy

It looks like it would be a lot of fun! Plus it would really save money by splitting the cost too!

Hey Rog, I would be up for it, I haven't got a line wet in a long time, I was planning on fishing the canals with you if you didn't mind the company, so this would be great.

Johnny would definatly be up for it. If we make it then and no one else wants it. He's always wanted to do the excursion when we were there but never had the chance.

I would love to do it. I'd pay $50, but not $250. I think you get a discount if you have aaa or passholder.

We may need 2 boats, competition, I love it.

No problem! Any of you coming around my dates?? My Husband wants to go but 250 seems too much for fishing, even with AAA discount.

If 1 person does the 1:30 pm I believe it's $175.00, if he doesn't find someone to split with.

Yea, I read that but apparently the fish bite best in early morning :rolleyes: plus if it is split then it is more reasonable in cost.

We have actually done dozens of trips and on that lake the fish bite well all the time.
If no one comes thru here try some other boards on the Dis and sometimes the people who run the fishing can help get you toghether with another party to split costs.

Scott and my BIL may do it. I'm waiting to hear back. Is there someplace I can get a lot of info on it to share with them? I know Scott would enjoy it...my BIL is kind of an uppity fisherman, though. He likes that deep sea, off the coast of Hawaii and Mexico stuff.:rolleyes1

Hey Frank! Will you tell me about the fishing excursion? What's it like? Would my uppity fisherman BIL like it? What do you do?

BTW, the answer "fish" is not acceptable:rotfl:

Out of the many dozens of trips we've done, the worst trip I ever had was a very nasty drizzly cold day, I did this excursion by myself, no one else would go with me, too nasty. BUT I STIll CAUGHT 4 BASS IN 2 HOURS ! I can't do that at home ! Catch a bass every 1/2 hour ! And that was my worst trip !

:rotfl:


Well, not too sure bout your uppity BIL,,if his head is too far up his butt, then he may not like the excursion. Nutt'n at all like a deep sea thrill ,,completely different,,got'a enjoy fresh water fishes. The very worst trip I've done was by myself , caught 4 in 2 hours. The best trip we've done , Denise and I booked a 4 hour trip , we stopped counting at 160 fish, and the small ones were runn'n about 2 lbs each, the big ones went bout 5 lb. ,,Denise has caught a 9 pounder once and the year before that I caught a 8 pounder.

Gonna go eat supper,, I'll tell you more shortly.

Theres a picture of Denises 9 pound bass on Johns site on the Fishing Thread. Check it out. The guide is holding the bass for Denise. At one time they had a pic of Denises fish on a board on the wall at the marina.

Okay Ami, back from supper (ate fast).
The fish excursion is from a pontoon boat, they provide everything needed to fish,,you just show up. Bring a camera,,sometimes they have, sometimes not. The guides are all pretty good, some a little better than others, but all good. You can fish live bait or artificial bait, just let them know which you prefer. The live bait is Shiners and they have a really nice variety of artificial baits. They provide drinks,,if it's morning they sometimes have coffee too.

All my life I have fished and we LOVE the fishing excursions! If your looking for that challenge of out smart'n a fish, fish'n with finesse, or wanting to show off your uppity skills , this may not be for you.
HOWEVER , if you like to just have fun fish'n where everybody is on a even playing field, where the newbie can be as good as the pro, and there a very good chance that you can catch the one fish of a life time,, then by all means , do this excursion.
Now I'm not saying each trip will be killer,,but we have always had a great time.

I don't see any reason we couldn't get Jim on the boat.:thumbsup2
If I'm not mistaken the pontoon is set up where the gate is level with the dock and you can roll right on. Still, I'm sure we can get him on.

Heck, It sounds like we might have about 4 boats at once. So I am sure that we can get him on a boat. Even if we have to put him in Pete's cart, set up some kind of ramp on the beach, and jump like evil kinevel. My cart is way to slow!

only problem is, Pete would miss the boat, then Jim and he would be fluttering around on a sinking golf cart.
