What You'll Get
Bass 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 $250, you get an all-day guided fishing trip for up to five people (a $498 value) from Pocono Fishing Adventures in Beltzville State Park. Trips depart at 9 a.m. and dock at 5 p.m.
Pocono Fishing Adventures' expert anglers guide fish whisperers of all skill sets through enjoyable fishing expeditions in a panoramic, backwoods paradise. During each voyage, the hearty crew commandeers a custom 20-foot pontoon boat equipped with bait, rods, high-quality fish-finding equipment, and an impressive array of fish calls to seek out Lake Beltzville's bass, catfish, trout, and other ichthyoid residents. Customers are permitted to use the supplied bait and tackle, and should arrive at least 15 minutes before scheduled trip times to prepare, divvy out supplies, and rehearse regional whaling hymns.
Pocono Fishing Adventures disembarks from a dock in the scenically sylvan Beltzville Lake, nestled in the foothills of the Pocono Mountains. The picturesque 949-acre lake is hailed for its sandy beaches, abundance of trout, and characteristic wetness. To prevent excursionists from falling prey to human bait cunningly set out by clever perch, Pocono Fishing Adventures appeases patrons’ appetites with complimentary lunch and soft drinks.
All anglers 16 years and older require a valid Pennsylvania fishing license, and trout fishers require a Pennsylvania trout stamp for all trout harvesting.

About Pocono Fishing Adventures
With intimate knowledge of Pennsylvania's waterways and custom 20-foot fishing boats, the local guides at Pocono Fishing Adventures teach groups and individuals the art of tracking down prized bass, sunfish, perch, bluegill, and other fish. Along with years of experience on the state's oversize puddles, the guides utilize GPS tracking systems and depth finders to hone in on hungry line tuggers and avoid dangerous icebergs. Guests may use the team's supply of equipment while scanning the depths of the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission's lakes, or they may also bring their own rods and tackle to borrow only the guides' keen sense of fish tracking. In addition to friendly charters, Pocono Fishing Adventures hosts corporate outings, allowing colleagues to test the alluring qualities of new marketing strategies with underwater PowerPoint presentations.
