Monday 17, January 2011
Motel 6, America’s lowest cost national chain, has a number of fishing trips on offer so fishermen angling for the trophy holiday of a lifetime are spoilt for choice.
The award-winning motel chain has netted together fishing tours ranging from the advanced, rewarding anglers with that trophy fish they've been waiting a lifetime to land, to the more casual and beginner tours for those wanting to experience the thrill of the catch. Whatever the skill level, Motel 6 provides the perfect place to rest after a long day on the water so the money saved on accommodation can go towards booking that top-notch charter guide or celebrating those much-anticipated great catches.
The tours are to be found at Goin’6, Motel 6’s free online journey planner. Choose from the countless opportunities in Florida, or go further afield and see what could be caught in Texas with its 800-mile stretch of Gulf coastline. So whether its trophy bass in Lake Fork (90 miles east of Dallas) that tickles the imagination, the sea trout, redfish, flounder, snapper, shark, tuna and even marlin of Laguna Madre (southwest of Corpus Christi) or giant tarpon fishing at the Boca Grande Pass (near Port Charlotte), there’s something for everyone with Motel 6’s fishing routes.
With rooms rates starting at £28 a night, Motel 6 offers what others can’t - a choice of where to stay; there are over 1000 locations across America. Combined with the lowest room rates around, Motel 6 offers peace of mind to travellers who know that wherever they choose to lay their head they will experience a clean and comfortable room, with free coffee to kick-start the morning. Using the Goin’6 tour planner not only are there several suggested tours over Florida and Texas but also a personalised route planner, so no matter where you end up you can see what’s nearby of interest and where to celebrate with those tales of fishing glory.
Example featured tour:
Bill Fish Fishing, Destin, Florida (east of Pensacola)
When it comes to Florida saltwater fishing, a quick check of the record books keeps revealing one name above all others — Destin. Located east of Pensacola on the state's famed Emerald Coast, this thriving fishing village is home to spectacular deep sea fishing, consistent bay fishing and unbeatable offshore sport fishing. Depending on the time of year and the bite, an experienced charter boat captain can always be found to improve the holidaying fisherman’s odds, whether it’s patrolling the depths for amberjack, red snapper or grouper, trolling the shallows for red fish and speckled trout, or going offshore after the ultimate thrill — big-game bill fish that cruise the warm Gulf waters.
The Destin fleet of charter boats is widely acknowledged to tag and release more bill fish than any other Gulf Coast fleet, making it the logical place to begin your pursuit of swordfish, sailfish, white marlin or even the incomparable blue marlin (Destin holds the Gulf record for blue marlin caught on hook and line with a 980 lb. monster). Destin-area sport fishing enthusiasts aren't limited to bill fish though. Some of the state's best dolphin (also called mahi mahi or dorado), tuna and wahoo fishing can also be found right here. Of all the outstanding places to fish in Florida, the argument can easily be made that Destin deserves top bill.
Go to Goin’6 to hook a holiday of a lifetime, combined with comfortable room design and low cost accommodation. Europe has so much to offer the intrepid fisherman, but can it compare with the sheer abundance of choice and coastline on offer across the water? There’s only one way to find out about reel adventure and that’s with Motel 6.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
