I don't like to eat to heavy when I fish. I like cheese and crackers, beef sticks, sunflower seeds and fruit. I have a friend that brings a picnic, which she calls her snacks, everytime we go fishing. It is amazing watching her eat and fish.
cHEST2HEAD-Pork Rinds bring in the fish.Well that's what i bust open on the boat,when the bite dies down.Usually brings good luck.
But for the surf,I might bring Peanut M&M's,a granola bar and deffinitly plenty of H2O.
I learned my lessons the hard way about getting sloppy drunk and fishing.
NSearch4 - Here's a story you can appreciate. When I was a teenager - I'd fish PAX River Naval Station for blues. Being a naval base - they're was a large filipino community that fished. We'd all camp at the river and the mom's would make rice and chicken adobo all day. Nothing like the smell of "chicken adobo" in the morning.
Don't think I can stomach it,not first thing in the morning,Maybe for lunch.I made Chicken Adobo once for my friends while camping.Man,it was like they never been fed.They swallowed it up.
I have to remind myself to keep hydrated and fed when fishing for extended fishing trips.
Passed out one time @ Chix's beach from de-hydration.Fortunatly a jogger found me passed out and called the paremedics.Lemme tell you how embarassing it was to be @ the hospital,sun-burned and my wife having to get me.
I didn't care about my well being,but for my tackle and gear left @ Chix's beach.So that's why I bring tons of water.
I always make sure to notice a pizza joint on the way to to my feeshn spot .Then I have one delivered.Its usually late so I get it free.But I do tip the delvery guy well for his effort.Pan Fried supreme pizza with anchovies....nuttin like it when fishin.!!! the R
For a long day I bring a couple sandwiches, chips/pretzels, water, soda and a few beers. I have gallon milk jugs and gatorade bottles in my freezer that I use in my cooler. I drink the water as it thaws in the gatorade bottles and have block ice all day.
sandflea cdog.....yep..gotta have my beer,but when its hot I'll drink one water for every 2-3 beers....won't be able to reel em' in if I'm passed out. For food Pig-Skins, sardeans, smoked oysters, vienna sausages, Pickled eggs, any kind of spicy meat stick, hot sauce, crackers, and a coke or two. This kinda stuff hides the bad taste of cut bait thats all over my hands, shirt, pants, and koozie.
