Default What's for breakfast?

When you get up at 2 - 3 am for a fishing trip?

I find my appetite is not very good and my stomach starts churning for some strange reason. I am not an early bird either, which probably doesnt help. I try to be quiet since most everyone else is still sleeping, but invariably the more quiet I try to be, the more clinking and clanging I end up doing.

Do you try and eat a full breakfast before you go, just pack something for later once you get settled on the boat or grab that sandwich at the gas station that's been sitting under the warmer since 8 o'clock the day before? What's your routine?

As long as I've had my "morning glory" usually just something small.Don't like being on a boat with an empty stomach.

I normally get up at 5 and out the door by 6 for work, and have a little breakfast before I go. So my body clock is tuned for some breakfast at the time. on fishing days, I'm up by 3-4 and out the door before 5. But in Texas we have this amazing place called Bucees... it's a staple for morning fisherman. I usually pickup a hot breakfast taco, some sweet tea, snacks for the trip, 160lbs of ice and not even spent $20.

My stomach is the same way on those early mornings. I usually mix a protein shake and work on it slowly.
I do like to get a bag full of sausage biscuits wherever we stop though, I like them cold later on the water

I always have some boiled eggs peeled in a Ziploc. Sprinkle in some everglades seasoning and throw in the fridge the night before.

Really don't feel like eating at 4 am. I leave the house at 5 to go get the boat ready for charters. Usually eat one egg when I get to the boat then another around the time we get to the fishing spot. That holds me until sandwich time.

No fuss, no mess, no noise at the house and it keeps my guts from growling like a bear.

Sometimes the clients show up with breakfast sandwiches for me. I eat them to be polite but something about the greasy damn things that don't like my belly on those morning it's already 82 degrees when we get to the boat. I end up tasting the thing until lunch time over and over. Got to where when were running out in the morning and I'm on the bridge alone I will deep six the thing when they ain't watching.

Hard boiled eggs are a good idea, can do those the day before.

Yep, they keep for days and don't get soggy.

It's Kind of funny that some of my repeat customers show up with them now after bumming a couple off me.

I've actually have seen them puke up their 7/11 breakfast sandwiches quite a few times. Looks like green eggs and ham twice warmed over, because they have been.

Usually stay on board the night before to get an early start. Tea or coffee and a couple of bits of toast an hour or so before dawn then start up and head out while the rest of the team sleep in. Keeps me going until someone turns up on the fly bridge with my bacon and eggs or fish fry etc a couple of hours later. Same when we are anchored out on the fishing grounds overnight or in a remote bay somewhere.

A publix sub treats me perfect for a day of fishing. Half whenever I get hungry and half when I want an unattended rod to get bit.

Do same thing, just sprinkle salt/pepper in bag and throw in cooler . Normally have 2 baggies with 2 in each one.

If getting gas will get one of those cups of watermelon or cantaloupe as well

I like those grain/granola and fruit breakfast bar things. I bring a box and have one in the truck driving down to the boat and another once we are leaving the marina. Sometimes another once we are set up if I'm still hungry and don't want lunch yet. They are simple, not messy, portable and settle a stomach well.

Many years back I went out fishing for a day with a friends father who was a commercial fisherman. Had to meet at his place at 4am to go to the boat. Get there and his wife had a full cooked breakfast waiting. I thought it was a special deal for us visitors but he said it was a normal day. Wife got up at 3.30am to cook his breakfast while he got ready for the day. Not sure you find many woman like that any more.

I'd venture to guess they are few and far between these days. i bet she looked at that (among many other things she did I am sure) as her job and necessary, just as it was her husband's job was to go out and fish everyday and maintain the equipment and boat.

Coffee while crossing the Pamlico Sound. A couple of hard boiled eggs while the wife and dog stretch their legs on the beach and then hit the inlet. As previously mentioned, eggs are good because you can prep them the day before.
