What You'll Get
Seasoned anglers are immune to seasickness due to hours spent atop bobbing boats and many an autumn spent bobbing for apples in the Great Lakes. Get the sea legs of a fisherman with today's Groupon: for $175, you get an all-day fishing outing for two from Columbia River Fishing Adventures (a $350 value).
Owner and guide Buddy Dupell, inspired by a childhood spent fishing on the Willamette River to create Columbia River Fishing Adventures, sends boats of up to six anglers on eight-hour excursions. Buddy leads patrons across various waterways, dropping anchor in the liveliest aquatic haunts. Stream-dwelling quarries change with the season, shifting from feisty summer steelhead in August to oversize sturgeon and fall chinook in September.
Buddy cleans and packages the day's catch, filleting trout and dressing immodest mermen. Fishermen can bring along a camera to snap shots of the first time they successfully lure a fish with seductive scarf dances. Rods and bait are included with this Groupon, though customers should bring their own rain gear, fishing license ($12, not included), snacks, and cooler for fish.
