Fish are elusive prey, fleeing into reefs to evade anglers and spontaneously sprouting legs to run away from Charles Darwin. Track down slippery targets with this Groupon.

$250 for Four-Hour Private Fishing Tour for Up to Six (a $525 value)

Led by Captain Doug Hicks, passengers cast for tarpon, redfish, snook, and trout just off the shore of New Smyrna Beach. Though the crew can gladly clean any catch, fish can only be cleaned in port, reducing the total time at sea.

Each trip includes live bait, ice, tackle, and US Coast Guard–approved gear as well as all necessary state and federal permits, though passengers should bring their own water, snacks, and cooler for transporting their catch home. See the website for more guidelines.

Captain Doug Hicks Fishing Charters

Seven generations ago, Doug Hicks's ancestors settled near the waters of New Smyrna Beach. Today, Hicks captains his own boat throughout his family's splashing grounds, leading fishing trips through Mosquito Lagoon, Tomoka Basin, and other native waters. With nearly 20 years of experience under his life preserver, Captain Hicks helps his passengers sniff out schools of tarpon, redfish, snook, and trout disguised as ordinary sea bass. The captain also helms chartered outings for activities ranging from tubing and wakeboarding to bar-hopping along the shore.
