Fishing is like raising children: both require patience, superior breath-holding skills, and a pocket full of worms to entice cooperation. Catch your next meal with today's Groupon: for $185, you get a four-hour fishing excursion for two, which includes a waived deposit, from 5 in the Well (a $375 value).
The line casters at 5 in the Well impart watery wisdom to all levels of piscine sirens looking to lure bass and muskie into their boats. Half-day jaunts take off either from a previously agreed-upon pickup location or 5 in the Well’s boat dock, plunging into the waters of Lake Minnetonka or its quieter surrounding bodies. Tournament-tested muskie finders cast off, armed with intimate knowledge of the area and the sport, ensuring enraptured fisherpeople don’t have to awkwardly ask their finned targets for directions.
Choose to bring your own monogrammed equipment, or ask the guide to provide rods, reels, and the other tools necessary for hauling in prize-winning fish or tricking passersby into chasing a dollar bill. Guides also offer rain gear when necessary, life vests, and a brief training session to instill the zen-like values of master line sinkers. For long days spent under the sweltering sun, fishers can sip on guide-furnished beverages, but they should bring their own snacks.
