What You'll Get
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 $350, you get an eight-hour fishing trip for four people with Bigulp Guide Service (a $700 value).
Bigulp's experienced and Coast Guard-certified fish-wranglers provide guided fishing trips year-round on the Columbia and Willamette Rivers, as well as the Astoria, Oregon estuary. During eight-hour tours, fisher-folk of all abilities can hunt for salmon, sturgeon, and steelhead while enjoying the lush Oregon scenery. All equipment, including bait, fish processing services, and readymade fibs regarding fish size are provided, though participating piscators should remember to bring their cameras to document scaly victories.
Trip destinations depend on the time of year and weather conditions, and plans will be confirmed with each potential pole-wielder three or four days before the trip by phone, and if that doesn't work via paper cups and string. Bigulp advises patrons to dress appropriately and bring their own lunch and beverages, as biting into raw sturgeon is less than appetizing for 9 out of 10 taste buds.
