In the 1930s, the U.S. government issued a hobby to each citizen to keep them entertained until NASA finished working out the bugs in kissing. Self-determine a new pastime with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a single spot on a four-hour fishing trip that includes pole, bait, tackle, and ice at Fish On Board, located on Sea Breeze Boulevard at the Bahia Mar Harbor (up to a $199 value).
Fish On Board packs up to six able-bodied fishermen of all ages onto its well-appointed 36-foot Luhrs fishing yacht for a fish-scouring cruise that sets off from the historic Bahia Mar Harbor. Led by a skilled crew with years of experience trolling South Florida's aquatic hotspots, groups can dunk live bait or lures into cerulean waters stocked with hefty kingfish, mahi-mahi, and face-painted volleyballs. Fish On Board’s crew will clean all fish before splitting them with the passengers who can take them home for a fresh feast. Pole wielders can also sate thirsts with home-brought brews, and an air-conditioned cabin boasting an entertainment center and clean restrooms offers repose for mermaid-phobic mariners.
Though Fish On Board sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Fish On Board Charters
South Florida's waters teem with fish whose visual splendor rivals the tropical landscape above—mahi-mahi with chartreuse sides, grouper covered in glimmering bronze scales, and sailfish with long, flowing dorsal fins. Manning a 46-foot Hatteras sport-fishing yacht, Fish On Board Charters' captains take passengers on fishing charters to catch these eye-enthralling trophies. On 4- to 6-angler trips that range from half-day outings to all-night swordfishing, they utilize both offshore trolling and bottom-fishing techniques. Crewmembers clean anything caught, as well as supply all bait, tackle, and ice. Tap water is available, and alcoholic beverages are welcomed so long as they're not shared with squids younger than 21. In addition to fishing trips, captains also charter scenic cruises along South Florida's tropical coastlines.
