Fish are elusive prey, fleeing into reefs to evade anglers and spontaneously sprouting legs to run away from Charles Darwin. Track down slippery targets with this Groupon.
C$139 for a Half-Day Fishing Trip for Two (C$300 Value)
Half-day fishing trips last from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. or 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Anglers meet up with the captain and then board a 22-foot fishing boat. Once out on the water, the captain supplies all the gear, tackle, and bait needed to snag salmon and trout from Lake Ontario. Customers must supply their own fishing licence. They should also bring along a cooler, sun protection, cameras, bug repellent, snacks, and nonalcoholic drinks.
Big Game Fishing Charters
Salmon and trout have a hard time hiding from Big Game Fishing Charters' 22-foot boat, even if they put on their best fake moustaches. In addition to rods and bait, the vessel brings along GPS systems and tracking gear from companies such as Fish Hawk. However, the most sophisticated fish finder stands at the boat's controls: expert angler Adrian Chapman. A member of the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters, Mr. Chapman has helped countless passengers pull fish from Lake Ontario since he started his company in 1999. He supplies everything needed for successful charters, including bait, equipment, and a second pair of hands to snap photographs once passengers reel in a prized catch.
