Fishing Vacation

Orlando

Years ago I asked a fishing friend for advice on the best time to take my family to Walt Disney World. "After you die," he told me. "Why go through hell twice?" Well, times have changed. The mother of all theme parks isn't any kinder to outdoors spirits, but the region's vast fishing resources have been developed to offer an antidote: an angler's theme park. Within minutes of Mickey's house, top guides can help you pursue trophy bass, crappies, redfish, snook, and tarpon. So be a family hero and suggest a trip to the Magic Kingdom. And pack the rod. 800-551-0181; www.orlandoinfo.com; Champion Pro Guide Services, 888-715-7661.
