What You'll Get
Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend some time floating through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a half-day of muskie fishing for one person (a $120 value) from Gary’s Indiana Muskie Experience in North Webster.
Since catching his first muskie in 1979, Gary has been introducing people to the stirring sport of Indiana muskie fishing. Weighing in at 66 pounds or more, about the same as a large child actor, and running almost five feet in length, the muskie is large enough to gulp down other fish, ducklings, and small muskrats. Under Gary’s instruction, bringing home a trophy-size muskie is as easy as shooting fish in a barrel large enough to fit only one fish. Start the adventure as early as 5 a.m. or come later for a night-fishing experience. Tooth Tamer rods, Shimano reels, lures, and terminal tackle are provided. Amateur anglers and seasoned muskie wranglers need only to bring polarized sunglasses, drinks, snacks, and cameras for capturing the glory. Master fish taxidermist Cecil Baird will make a replica of any 50-inch or oversize muskie at no charge, for hanging over the fireplace or using as a rigid body pillow.

About Gary's Muskie Experience
Since 1979, the namesake of Gary's Muskie Experience has navigated local lakes and waterways while helping anglers reel in trophy fish. By reading weather patterns and reflecting on wisdom gained through years as a water wizard, the fishing specialist sets out in search of the muskellunge, a deep-dwelling predator known to weigh up to 70 pounds. Gary carefully selects lures that represent the fishes' seasonal diet, finicky appetite, and general distaste for swashbuckling pirate hooks. He also equips each of his guests with rods and reels capable of withstanding the fish's well-known strength. Most expeditions take place on Webster Lake, Backwater Lake, The Barbee Chain, Lake Tippecanoe, James Lake, Oswego Lake, Loon Lake, and Upper Long Lake.
