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 $159, you get a two-night fishing getaway for two at Lindsey’s Resort in Heber Springs (a $352 total value). The fishing getaway includes:
- Two-night stay for two (a $132 value)
- Boat with motor and gas equipped with paddles, anchors, live well, and life jackets (a $220 value)
At Lindsey’s Resort, cedar log cabins dot the serene shores of the Little Red River, where trout flit and dart beneath the water’s surface. Lodgings furnish wayfarers with two queen-size beds from which to gaze out at the idyllic foothills of the Ozark Mountains, as well as a kitchen and private bathroom. Upon settling into cabins and perfecting the brown trout’s mating call, lodgers can board their motorboat and shove off from the shore. The nearby trout dock furnishes fisherfolk with bait and tackle supplies and a fish-cleaning station. For an extra fee, a seasoned guide joins fishing expeditions, consulting boaters on teeming trout hangouts and which trout is the likeliest to grant wishes.
Adjacent to the fishing pier, Pot o’ Gold Restaurant welcomes outdoorsmen and their fresh catches into its wood-paneled dining room. Chefs fry up fish as guests kick back and make fish-lips at one another. Cooks can also prepare packed lunches for fishing trips, keeping bodies fueled as they troll the tree-lined waters.
