What You'll Get
Until the advent of lures, fishermen had to attract their prey with thoughtful gifts and expensive dinners. Explore modern methods of piscine procurement with today's Groupon: for $169, you get a guided daylong fishing expedition for two at IrishCreek Outfitters in Renfrew (up to a $340 value). Children age 12 and younger normally fish for free if accompanied by an adult.
For more than 30 years, IrishCreek Outfitters has led customers on fish-seeking forays across the fertile waters of the Ottawa and Bonnechere Rivers. The eight-hour day tour for two outfits nautical neophytes and seasoned line casters alike with a boat, a knowledgeable guide, and all equipment necessary for fishing, such as spray cans of river-nymph repellent. Midway through the expedition, guests head back to shore to stretch their legs and share a catered lunch. At the end of an idyllic day spent trolling tree-lined waters, IrishCreek will photograph the day's catch, which accomplished fin wranglers can proudly display or employ as a subtle warning to surly pet goldfish.

About Irish Creek Outfitters
For more than 30 years, the guides at Irish Creek Outfitters have explored Ottawa's local waterways and woods in search of trophy fish and game birds. During guided fishing trips along the Ottawa River trip leaders equip anglers with necessary equipment and hard-earned techniques for catching wall-worthy catches. In addition to using digital maps and Aqua-Vu underwater video cameras, fishing experts select lures that resemble seasonal food sources such as bugs, minnows, or limited-edition rib sandwiches. During the winter, they duck the chill wind inside portable shelters with propane heaters while wrestling and winning finned fighters such as walleye, northern pike, and lake trout.
