Fish are an elusive prey, fleeing into reefs to evade anglers and spontaneously sprouting legs to run away from Charles Darwin. Track down slippery targets with today's Groupon: for $225, you get a chartered river-fishing trip for two from Alaska Half Price (a $450 value).
Alaska Half Price leads guests on chartered fishing expeditions down scenic rivers rich with aquatic life. The guided river trips spend six to eight hours exploring either the Kenai or Kasilof Rivers depending on that particular day's fishing conditions as well as the predictions of a Ouija map. Depending on what is in season, deftly cast lines may snag massive king, silver, and sockeye salmon. Skilled anglers can coax dolly vardens out of rocks and rainbow trout out of prisms. Guides supply fish hunters with rods, tackle, and bait, and inexperienced fishermen can ask the captain to clean and fillet every catch for no additional charge. Guests must provide their own fishing licenses, which they can purchase from Alaska Half Price's onsite bait shop. Though they are not included in this Groupon, Alaska Half Price also stuffs a fleet of cabins with all the coziness they can comfortably hold for out-of-town travelers.
