Favorite Food to Snack on in the boat?

69 posts in this topic

Hey FM'ers, Planning out a trip with a couple buddies up to Zippel Bay State Park and trying to keep the load down so planning out all foods and meals and such. I'm having a hard time thinking of things to bring to much on in the boat...

I like Jerky sticks and Sun flower seeds. Not exactly meal quality food, but good to snack on non the less.

If I'm going to be in a boat for a while I bring some beef jerkey, or some sandwiches in a cooler! You really can not have enough beef jerkey.

I don't eat while I fish... its too distracting. I can eat when I get home.

Smoked oysters and triscuts, they're just so good once they hit your lips! Also, beer. I've tried not having anything with me, and it just gets to be too much if I'm doing an all day trip. I can't get up at 4 and not eat anything until night.

Sandwiches, chips, candy bars, cookies, pop, water....The length of the trip determines the amount of food brought.

Superstitious charter captains don't allow bananas on their boats, they say they bring bad luck laugh

I'm not superstitious though and frequently bring bananas along. Jerky or beef sticks too. And sandwiches --- a lot of times I'll get a sub on the way to the lake and save it until I get hungry.

The perfect food for fishing is powdered donuts.

Just think of all those fish you are handling, maybe you catch a northern and get some slime on you, maybe you're needing to mess with the engine now you might have a little grease on you, maybe some gas. Maybe you sprayed some bug spray or put on sun block, all of that stuff leads to having some pretty funky fingers that you may not want touching your food.

The answer is the powdered donut. When you pick up a powdered donut you will notice that you are left with the powder coating stuck to your fingers creating the perfect barrier from all of that funky fish grime.

You haven't lived until feasting on powdered donuts and beer while pulling in a limit of walleye.

PBJs and beef jerky. Smirnoff Ice are good too in addition to beer, but I think beer was already mentioned. Did someone say beer?

Smoked muskie and a bass sandwich! Ok, seriously no bananas or fish food products. Beef jerky, doritos or cheetos, little debbies, and lots of water and diet dew (to combat the little debs and chips). A lot of the time its just water. Too many fish to catch to bother eating.

Hey those gummie worms work for bait also, Panfish eat them up. As said before JERKY and sandwiches, I buy a pack of cheese slices and lunch meat and squeeseable mayo and loaf of bread. Good to go all day. Drink lots of water, and not out of the lake.

Beef or venison sticks, Snickers miniatures and beer or 'Dew depending on the time of day.

Never could understand how a boat owner could alow sunflower seeds on board. Those #&%! hulls are the WORST thing to try and clean out of a boat and any hulls that are missed attract mice during storage.

    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood.
