    The only time I shop at Trader Joe's is when I'm shopping for a camping trip; they have the best snack/junk food selection available.

    Bacon & eggs & toast & coffee if I have the time. Otherwise it's McD's for a sausage and egg mcmuffin.

    Lunch is pastrami & harvarti on Dave's killer bread with Plochman's stone ground mustard with horseradish. And a banana because I don't believe that bananas are bad luck for fishing. Water and Full Sail Amber or Black Butte Porter to drink.

    Eat well, fish well. Gotta' get a boy off to school.

    Black Butte Porter is good, but shorter Pyramid bottles fit better in my small soft cooler and allow for more room to stash sandwiches. If I have the large cooler in my rig, then there may be some Black Butte inside.
    OK, I also confess to P-nut butter and banana sandwiches when paddling lakes, estuaries, and tidal creeks. Searun Cutthroat don't seem to care about bananas. Neither do trout in lakes, but I am superstitious about breezes that blow from the East. If one eats bananas when the breeze is from the East, then how does one know which bad juju is kicking in?:confused:

    That's why I like surfing. When the breeze is blowing from the East, the surf is often good, and then its always OK to eat bananas.:cool: I'll hold off to go fishing when the wind is not blowing from an unlucky direction. This morning, the breeze was blowing from the East. The swell report was just right. I didn't go fishing. This afternoon, the post surf session rejuvenator was a bottle of water and a banana, followed by a Deschutes Jubelale into the sunset. I didn't go razor clamming, but clammers were getting their limits easily and quickly.

    Jelly filled sugar coated donuts are eaten first so sugar gets all over the hands, chilly cheese chips, sweet hot mustard on most sandwiches and my buddy started bringing white cheddar popcorn --- addicting popcorn for sure. green monsters. I quit taking smoked fish because of the scent it leaves on my hands.

    And bananas never go in my boat! and being 25 years clean-n-sober this month I usually never fish with people that drink, most of the time I'm cleaning fucking beer bottles out of my boat or truck afterwards which really pisses me off! most everyone I fish with does not drink or never drinks while we fish together and I like it that way! But than again, I have always owned my own drifter so can make the rules!

    What? Smoked? Put thru the meat grinder and formed into nuggets, and then breaded and deep fried? Or maybe just the dreaded canned humpy, pickle, and mayo sandwich? Humpy! WTF?!!:p
    What kind of beverage is necessary to wash that down?:D

    It warms my heart to know we share yet more things in common. Also explains why the outhouses at the launches are so ripe :eek:.

    Forgot about the white cheddar popcorn...that stuff should be illegal...almost as bad as Nacho Doritos!

    Clif bars and similar because they are compact fuel.

    Really crappy brand of spicy peanuts and Chic-O-Sticks. Something that got started years ago, and even though none of my fishing partners or myself like them, it has become a tradition.

    Canned trout soaked in canola oil, along with wheat thins. I have my protein, along with fat and carbohydrates. Really healthy for you.

    When I used to fish with Matt Burke. We would stop at the local Latte stand and he would pick up two large Latte's for himself and a box of Old Fashioned Dognuts. That was what was eaten on the way to the Skagit. He would pick me up at "O" dark thirty for the 40 minute drive there.

    I hate to get up in the dark and go fishing. Here in Montana the fish bite all day long. No more early rises to go fishing for me. I get to sleep in, if I could. From getting up for about 40 years with an alarm clock. Sleeping in is something I never do. Wish I could but it never happens.

    Clif Bars and cigs... I pretty much only smoke when I fish, it's too awesome. Sometimes I bring dried fruit too. Dognuts are great for the drive.
