The call of the wild is like a call from an elderly grandparent: though you can’t quite make out what’s being said, you feel better about yourself when you answer. Pick up nature's phone with today's Groupon: for $199 you get an all-inclusive half-day fishing trip for four from Bayou’s Edge Charter Fishing in Destrehan (a $400 value).
Bayou’s Edge’s charter fishing trips give customers a chance to catch fish and enjoy spectacular scenery in natural areas. Pack only sunscreen, a lunch, and a drink, as Bayou’s Edge provides all of the necessary gear as well as an ice-filled cooler for you to store your catches in. A staffer will pick fishing parties up from their lodgings and transport them to a remote marsh or swamp where they can take in breathtaking views of natural vegetation, migratory birds, otters, and mystical Darth Vader apparitions for three to four hours. Hop in a comfortable boat or freewheeling kayak and use the complimentary bait to catch redfish, speckled trout, and flounder. A hook-casting guru will mentor the group in the art of fly-fishing, along with the tricky bait-and-switch technique used by many successful pescatarian salesmen. At the end of the excursion, Bayou's edge will clean and package catches before safely depositing fishers back at their hotels, homes, or subterranean supervillain labs.
Piscators looking to extend their aquatic jaunts can use their Groupon towards the value of a full-day trip.
