Fishing is like raising children: both require patience, superior breath-holding skills, and a pocket full of worms to entice cooperation. Take pride in your next catch with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a half-day muskie fishing trip for one person at Gary's Indiana Muskie Experience in North Webster (up to a $120 Value). Daytime trips begin as early as 6 a.m.
The eponymous angler at Gary's Indiana Muskie Experience draws on more than 30 years of muskie-nabbing experience to guide fisherfolk of all skill levels through an enjoyable water-bound odyssey. During day or night treks, the freshwater farer propels his fish-luring vessel in the direction of the lakes' most sought-after trophy fish that, like a pirate's peg leg, can weigh up to 70 pounds. Once the expert captain locates leviathan-like lake beasts, passengers can woo them shipside with the provided lures and haul them in with the boat's Tooth Tamer rods and Shimano reels, or their bare hands. Upon the completion of half-day trips, master taxidermist Cecil Baird will craft a complimentary replica of any muskie or rubber boot 50 inches or longer, ideal for future boasting of aquatic adventures or for use as bait for even larger taxidermied fish.
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.
