What do you guys bring for food when you know it will be a long day?

 

I received a freezer pack that is also a lunch box - it's supposed to be good for up to 10 hours.

 

I like simple sandwiches, cheese and crackers, a couple sugary snacks or a beer are nice too.

I always go to Subway and get a classic cold cut foot-long when I go to tourneys. Otherwise, I like to pack a few Quaker Oats snack bars, a couple of bananas, a couple hard boiled eggs, maybe a sammich or two.

With me, it's the premium Taste of Nature nut/seed bars you get in the boxes at Costco (or Kashi granola bars if I'm out of the former). These are very filling and very small and not crazy-expensive if you buy 'em in bulk, so they fit nicely in my front console compartment within easy reach. They're not 'crisp' like many granola bars and you can practically bend them in a C-shape, so you're not dealing with crumbs a lot (although sticky fingers can occur if you're not careful unwrapping them.)

 

I also take a water bottle of lightly mint-flavoured water, made with Crystal Light mojito mix but watered down to about 20% of regular strength to avoid a sugary blast.

I find that when I'm out on the water I'm so distracted by fishing that I don't feel the need to eat very much... but as soon as I get to shore I'm famished.

Jerky from the butcher there in Rothesay. Can't beat it for snacks through the day.

All good ideas. Some other I've come up with are: Bulk bin snacks, peanuts, cube meat for kebab (if you can make a fire). All about the protein!

I like the Triple Threat Power Bar Protien Bars, and PB&J sandwiches with a big ol bottle of Gatorade. This was my staple when I rented some kayaks last year for fishing.

I mostly take water, a power bar of some kind, maybe a sandwich, more often some sweet and sour candies these days. it depends how long I'm going out. some times hot dogs or steak for the fire.
