What You'll Get
Snagging the catch of a lifetime doesn't happen at local bars or church socials—it happens when you cast a line into the briny bottom of a pristine lake. Up your chances of reeling in a winner with today's Groupon: for $75, you get a four-hour bass and striper fishing trip at Lake Pleasant (a $150 value) with The Hook Up Outfitters.
Designed for fisherpeople of all skill sets, you'll trek out to angler-approved Lake Pleasant, a crystalline oasis teeming with largemouth bass, white bass, striped bass, and at least one confirmed Thing That Should Not Be. This prime fishery, located at the base of the epic Bradshaw mountains, has been nationally recognized as one of the top spots to fish in the American Southwest. While you're on board, expert guides (including TV and radio fishing-show alumni, Bassmaster Classic competitors, and nationally profiled waterbeast reelers) will be there to dole out advice, input, and cryptic riddles.
The Hook Up Outfitters uses high-quality equipment for all its aquatic excursions, so your all-inclusive daytime adventure will outfit you with G. Loomis rods, Shimano reels, the latest tackle and gear, and some beverages. Fly-fishing trips, on the other hand, will feature Orvis gear (rods, reels, line, leaders) and transportation via tournament-rigged bass and bay boats. See today's side deal for more information about the fly-fishing clinic. Get this Groupon to bond with outdoorsy pals, catch something you can legally behead, or restore good fish karma after accidentally swallowing your pet guppy.
- Ben Koller of The Hook Up Outfitters is an old hand at helping even a greenhorn land big bass on a fly rod. He knows just what the fish want and ties his own flies. – Margie Anderson, Arizona Republic
