    Favorite tailgate lunch whether fishing or chasing birds - smoked kokanee, crackers, cheese and apple slices with a favorite beverage. This lunch whether on the tailgate or in the boat seems to be a hit with my various fishing/hunting partners as well.

    If I don't stop for a lunch then it is trail mix and fiber bars with lots of water.

    Smoked Coho (or Chinook) and a micro brew or two! If the smoked salmon is unavailable, then I might just slap together a p-nut butter, raisin, and cheese sandwich on organic multi-grain bread. I have been known to buy Clif Bars and take them along.

    Doritos's, small bag($1.49) and Soda pop on the way. I quit drinking Diet Coke. Messed up my stomach. When I'm done fishing it usually another small bag of the same and maybe a Ice Cream Bar (usually it's a Blue Bunny brand).

    I used to pack my self a lunch but then I would forget about it. At my age I just concentrate on fishing. Eating is just an after thought.

    PBJ's everytime. Requires no cooler, can be stuffed into a vest pocket and get smashed, but still edible.

    Ditto PBJ in the vest.
    Will often hit McDs early for breakfast something and coffee.
    On a camping type excursion I'll often pick up a Hawaiian pizza for the cooler. All the food groups in a 24/7 snack.

    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
