Default Extra things

If it is posted I missed it.
Bring an oil thermometer.
Burning your oil the first day or two is the worst.

Default Bug zappers

A couple of the battery powered bug zappers for in the cabin....makes short work of skeeters. You can get them at Fleet Farm etc for under five bucks - shaped like a small tennis racket - press the button to energize & zap. A lot easier than trying to kill by hand - works on flies too.

To that first aid kit I'd be sure to add Imodium, Gas-X, and some Pepcid.

Garlic, hot sauce, beer, grease, chip type snacks, onions, jerky, beans, etc, seem to be standard fare at many fish camp meals and a couple of days of that type of diet will turn even the strongest system to jello. As for me, my system is jello already on the best of days. So.... Don't leave home without it.

Nothing ruins a fishing trip faster than sitting on the toilet all day.

Also, Ibuprofen or similar, for minor headache and pain relief. Claratin, or similar, for allergies.
Life is the question, love is the answer.

There's a fine line between being a dedicated fisherman and fool who doesn't know when to come in out of the rain.

Another item for the first aid kit. A tube of Orajel for tooth pain.

Weighs nothing and can be a real game changer.

My wife brought this along once and we never go fishing without it now!
Gets rid of the "fishy" smell on our hands for good at the end of the day!


Great ideas BTW on the upscale First Aid Kits! Thanks for the info!
