Since 1997, captain Cy Grajcar has trawled the rivers and lakes of northwest Georgia. Over that time, he has developed a specialty for hauling up striped, hybrid, and white bass from lakes and rivers where they congregate, even setting records for some the monsters that he's reeled in. As a guide, he invites clients aboard his trusty 22-foot Palm Beach Center Console where all fishing gear is provided and ferries them off to the spots on Lake Altoona, Carters Lake, and rivers throughout the region where he's found reliable success. On the water, Cy shares instruction for how to draw in fat, picture-worthy fish using sound baiting, casting, and reeling technique, as opposed to just dangling a slice of chocolate cake in the water.

Beneath vividly colored rafters, a climbable children's playground blooms with pirate ships, a maze of bridges, and inflatable bounce rooms to inspire kinetic play and stoke little ones' imaginative fires. DACKids' safety crew keeps a responsible eye on the kiddie revelry, monitoring the Pirates Cove play park dressed in full, seaworthy costume. Under their responsible gaze, kids shuffle across the sandy floor of the Giant Octopus's lair or maneuver over rope ladders, fire foam-ball cannons, and waggle flags perched atop wooden forts.
The DACK Pirate Cove accommodates birthday celebrations with packages that allow wee ones to explore and burn off steam for 90-minutes before retiring to a private room, where partygoers revel in food and festivities while parents connect to the in-house WiFi to research how pirates doled out justice for sneaking second helpings of cake.
