Like fishing for compliments, fishing for fish requires the right bait, the right line, and a friend who is willing to exaggerate. Reel it in with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a half-day fishing trip from Tar-Pam Guide Service (a $400 value). This Groupon is valid for up to three anglers.
Captain Richard Andrews pilots novice anglers to the ripest fishing spots of Eastern North Carolina's waterways on his 22-foot Pathfinder bay boat. After trolling the waters for heavily populated areas, fish wranglers cast lines out using rods capable of wrangling fish or aquatic sports mascots weighing up to 40 pounds. Under captain Richard's expert guidance, even beginners can reel in choice specimens of the winter striped bass that float through the estuaries. Captain Richard even garbs would-be fly fishermen with wings made of fishing line and cardboard before helping them learn to finesse their rod when fishing. Above the water, eyes feast on the gorgeous flora and landlubbing fauna on the banks, and old waterfront towns grant views of colonial architecture.

Spurred on by winter's chill, Captain Richard Andrews leads small groups to the lower Roanoke River in search of the region's abundant striped bass. Whether armed with light tackle or fly gear, anglers reap the benefits of colder water temperatures, which send their prey swimming from Albemarle Sound into the lower Roanoke's deeper river channels. While no fishing trip is ever guaranteed, fishermen in the area have reported hauls in excess of triple digits on the luckiest of expeditions during this time of year. The four-to-five-hour half-day charters shove off at 8:30 a.m. from the Shipyard Landing boat ramp just off the Cashie River.
