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 $69, you get an ice-fishing excursion for up to 12 people from RideOn Rentals in Collingwood (a $149 value). Excursions include:
- Four-hour deluxe ice-fishing hut rental
- Indoor hole drilled upon arrival
- Fishing gear for up to 12 people<p>
Bait is not included in today’s deal, but can be purchased on-site for an additional fee. Ice-fishing season begins on Tuesday, January 10, 2012.
RideOn Rentals equips alfresco adventurers with all the gear required to facilitate comfortable and stress-free ice-fishing excursions on Collingwood Harbour. Up to 12 nascent Ahabs can shuffle across frosted waters to their deluxe ice-fishing hut equipped with an 8-inch hole that creates a direct link between humans and marine life better than a family tree with a common great-great-kraken. After scooping up their poles, companions gather around the frosted gap for four hours’ worth of angling and energetic breeze-shooting. As a means of staving off the cold and silencing growling stomachs, the hut’s cozy 8’x12’ dimensions feature a mini woodstove that can sprout a crackling fire along with a barbecue to infuse the air with the smoky aroma of warming grub ($15 wood kit and $6 propane tank not included in today’s deal). Should fishers require a larger fishing hole or an indoor pool, an in-hut ice auger enables savvy guests to hone their drilling prowess.
