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.
$199 for a Half-Day Fishing Charter for Up to Three ($400 Value)
During fishing charters, a seasoned fisherman will captain groups of all ages and experience levels through the waters of Pine Island Sound and Estero Bay. Armed with all the necessary rods, reels, and tackle, crews fish for Florida game fish such as tarpon, redfish, and spotted sea trout. Afterwards, the guide will filet, package, and come up with a clever nickname for all catches.
Scales and Tails Charter Company
Captain Glen Brownlee was a born fisherman. Some say he was delivered at sea with only the crash of waves and the caw of gulls as his lullaby; others say he was raised by a wild pack of tackle bobbers until his 14th birthday. Regardless of the tall tales surrounding this Fort Myers native, one thing is certain: he took up the fishing pole at a young age, scouring local salt and fresh waters for the area's abundance of game fish.
Twenty-five years later, Glen spearheads his own fishing company—Scales and Tails Charters—where he shares his lifetime of fishing expertise with others during trips across Southwest Florida waters. The seasoned sailor guides his Glen's 2005 Sea Chaser Flats boat to areas where fish are plentiful, so guests have a better chance of reeling in tarpon, redfish, and the rare but beautiful Chanel high-heeled boot. Not only does Glen provide his customers with professional rods and reels, he filets and packages their catches at the end of the trip himself.
