    My family an I want to try out the cane pole fishing at Port Orleans - Ol' Man Island Fishing Hole. We are under the impression that you just need to show up and depending on the time of day, you will be allowed to fish without a reservation.

    The confusion is that we recently purchased Fodor's Walt Disney World 2007 Guide Book and it states the following; "Catch and release is encouraged, but you can have your fish packed in ice to take home - you have to clean them yourself. Cane poles and bait are $4 per half hour. You must rent your equipment here to use the dock. Two-hour excursions in a boat with a driver are $80 per person, and include rod, reel and bait. The Fishing Hole is open daily 7 to 2:30 and reservations are required"

    If someone has recently fished at Port Orleans and rented the cane poles, can you please let me know if you needed a reservation?

    You might want to ask on the resorts board.
