Fishing is the ultimate prank because the fish think they are getting food and then are immediately yanked into a world they cannot understand. Bait and switch with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $175 for a full-day weekday fishing trip for up to three (a $375 value)
- $185 for a full-day weekend fishing trip for up to three (a $375 value)
Both expert-led fishing trips supply all the necessary tackle, bait, and ice, though guests must have a valid Virginia freshwater-fishing license. Rock On Charters keeps aquatic adventurers hydrated with bottles of cold water and Gatorade.
The trips start and end at Gills Creek Marina, setting sail between 6:30 a.m. and 7 a.m.
Rock On Charters
Captain Josh Laferty channels more than two decades of experience fishing the local waters to help people find and reel in striped bass from Smith Mountain Lake. During his chartered trips, up to three fishermen hang out on an Angler center-console boat equipped with refreshments, safety gear, and fishing equipment such as Orvis fly tackle and Outcast planer boards. Since the boat comes stocked with everything needed for a day—or half-day—of fishing, participants only need to bring their Virginia freshwater-fishing license and arrive dressed in season-appropriate apparel and mermaid tails.
