Humans and aquatic creatures rarely occupy the same space, mostly due to differences in breathing mechanisms and over what really happened at that Mesozoic family party. Venture out onto open waters to see how the other half of the animal kingdom lives with today's Groupon: for $300, you get eight hours of fishing with two friends, led by an experienced captain from Bay Adventures Sportfishing (a $450 value). Bay Adventures Sportfishing's tour of Galveston Bay Complex helps diligent reelers and their friends pull in heaps of gleaming saltwater fish. The scenic eight-hour vacation among the bay's fishy hotspots presents chances to catch various early-to-bed, early-to-rise breeds as well as more crepuscular water dwellers that thrill even the most jaded veterans of Herman Melville book clubs. Captain Steve Auld and the fellow leaders of his fishing boat flotilla boast numerous awards and expertise that helps them guide passengers to the softer, more comfortable water that fish congregate in, as well as angling tips and casting advice. For seafarers who don't bring their own gear, Bay Adventures provides rods, reels, and artificial lures to help you break the ice with aquatic acquaintances. Like the security door at the international space station, this trip demands you present a valid Texas fishing license, and recommends bringing snacks and a cooler to carry home cleaned and packaged fish.
