Like fishing for compliments, fishing for fish requires the right bait, the right line, and a friend who is willing to exaggerate. Reel it in with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $60 for a two-hour Fishing 101 class for two on Lake Allatoona (a $120 value)
- $120 for a five-hour guided fishing trip for two on Lake Allatoona (a $250 value)
During the Fishing 101 class, FLW and B.A.S.S. tournament pro David W. Turner Sr. hosts a shoreline lesson tailored to clients' skill level that teaches them skills from reading the water to using a bait caster. On the guided trip, Turner takes guests out on his 21-foot Triton boat, stocked with tackle and snacks. Buyers must possess a Georgia freshwater-fishing license and are encouraged to bring weather-appropriate clothing and their own gear—though Turner can lend customers his own equipment. Lessons and trips begin at various meeting points around Lake Allatoona, such as Blockhouse Ramp or Red Top Mountain State Park](http://gastateparks.org/RedTopMountain). Both options are available by appointment.
Bass Talk Pro
After a career that included breaking both knees in the Army and seeing three back-to-back hurricanes while working for a Central Florida sheriff's office, David W. Turner Sr. felt it was time to pursue his dream of becoming a professional bass fisherman. Today, he follows the FLW and B.A.S.S. tournament trails, competing under sponsorships from major brands such as Dobyns Rods and Lew's. To stay sharp when not on the circuit, Turner lends his bass-angling expertise through services that range from customized fishing lessons to five-hour guided trips on waters such as Lake Allatoona, Lake Lanier, and Lake Sinclair. He welcomes clients aboard his 21-foot Triton boat, outfitted with Hummingbird side-imaging depth finders that create a topographical image of the lake bottom. In addition to lessons and guided trips, Turner gives back through Operation: A Day on the Lake, a program through which tournament anglers take a veteran out for a day of fishing.
