Deep-sea fishing is like raising children: both require patience, superior breath-holding skills, and a pocket full of worms to entice cooperation. Catch your next meal with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a deep-sea day fishing trip on the Pastime Princess (up to an $81.75 value).

The Pastime Princess is a nearly 100-foot-long fishing boat equipped with an expanded sundeck, air conditioners, onboard cafe, and more than enough deck space for 112 fisherpersons. Arrive about 45 minutes before the scheduled departure time to reserve a spot for you and your mates. Crew members will provide rods, reels, and fish-calling whistles, but guests are welcome to bring their own gear if they prefer. During eight-hour cruises, experienced guppy-getters will take you out 11-23 miles, depending on where the fish are. Once a school is located, trawlers can opt to compete for the jackpot—a cash collection pitched in by participating fishers—which is awarded to the pole-wielder who catches the biggest edible fish of the day. Seafarers are encouraged to bring their own sun armor. Sea breezes and fish-cleaning services for scaly sea-prizes are complimentary.

Satisfy Titan-sized appetites onboard inside the High Seas Cafe, where breakfast, lunch, and beverages can all be purchased. When you hit the dock at the end of the day, chefs at the Dolphin View Restaurant can cook up catches, serving them alongside french fries, coleslaw, and a hush puppy (for an extra $3.95) to reward mouths with a culinary harmony unseen since the California Raisins dominated the airwaves.

Pastime Princess

Once a support vessel that transported oil-rig workers around the Gulf of Mexico, the 100-foot-long Pastime Princess now takes up to 75 anglers on deep-sea fishing trips between 11 and 23 miles off shore. Beyond transporting fishermen into these Atlantic waters, the Pastime Princess maintains guests' comfort with air conditioning, bathrooms cleaned daily, and a galley where chefs prepare a menu of grilled fare. The boat's crew supplies anglers of all skills levels with necessary gear, including bait, and furnishes passengers with fishing licenses. They also clean catches, which guests can tote home or have cooked at Dolphin View Seafood Restaurant upon returning to land. To enhance revelry aboard the boat, hands organize a winner-take-all jackpot for whoever catches the largest edible fish or still-useable mattress. A FAQ page anticipates common questions and lists some recommendations, such as advising anglers to arrive 45 minutes before departure and to bring coolers no larger than 20 inches.
