What You'll Get
It's best to have access to a boat if you want to catch a fish, as swimming independently into a lake with a backpack full of bait makes it harder for the fish to see you. Set yourself up for success with today's Groupon for a guided fishing trip from Fish Strong Guide Service in Ardmore. Morning trips take place from sunrise until 11 a.m., and afternoon trips take place from 4 p.m. until sunset. Choose from four options:
• For $99, you get a half-day guided fishing trip for two people (a $219 value).
• For $119, you get a half-day guided fishing trip for three people (a $264 value).
• For $149, you get a half-day guided fishing trip for four people (a $309 value).
• For $169, you get a half-day guided fishing trip for five people (a $354 value).
From behind the reins of a 2011 BassCat Eyra boat with a 250-horsepower high-output Mercury motor, expert guides tote the supplies and demonstrate the techniques needed to snare a crappie or other local pisces. Bring your own familiar gear, or use the provided tackle, rods, reels, bait, life vests, and optional life bow tie. Families, friends, or up to five recently reunited astronaut campers can practice the skills required to catch and clean aquatic fauna located with the aid of an on-board Hummingbird fish finder that touts the olfactory skills of a Harvard-educated hound dog.
Trips explore hot spots on one of six nearby lake destinations, including Lake Murray, which shelters a cult of fish known for self-hooking as recompense for their ancestors' indulgent choice of air over water. Other lakes include the Thunderbird, relaxing Hefner, bass-bearing Eufaula, Konawa, and Arbuckle.

About Fish Strong
Fish Strong's anglers scan the azure vistas of Oklahoma’s lakes for tiny splashes and darting glints of silver on fishing expeditions with groups of all ages and experience levels. Though most of the company’s excursions take place on scenic Lake Murray—a veritable gold mine of smallmouth bass located within the 12,500-acre Lake Murray State Park—visitors may also cast their lines across the glassy surfaces of Lakes Arbuckle, Konawa, Thunderbird, Hefner, and Eufaula. Two boats outfitted with powerful engines and modern tracking equipment home in on scaly targets from a distance, enabling the luckiest fishermen to catch as many as 30 bass, crappies, and catfish on a single trip. Trips depart at sunrise and in the early evening—when fish are most prone to snatching up bait—and include all necessary gear, from rods and tackle to sunscreen and wax to protect ears from yodeling sirens.
