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.

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.

    • So our bear friend came back today and she brought somebody with her. It might be time to quit feeding the birds sunflower seeds until next fall.  
    • I picked up that double bag deal about a month ago at Home Depot here in Sioux Falls. Ironically it was the same weekend we had the big April snow storm.
    • I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.
    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
