Sandwiches are the first choice when considering a fishing trip and are essentially a complete meal in itself. Carbohydrate, protein, vegetables all combined to give a healthy boost for a day out on the sea. Opting for a whole grain bread with a meat of your choice and garnished with lettuce, cucumbers, onions, and tomatoes can be just what the body needs when hunger bites. Along with the nutrition value, the fact that a sandwich can be wrapped and packed hygienically adds to it being the number one choice for a deep-sea fishing trip. In fact, you can also go for pies and pastries available in the market which have an added advantage of being pre-packed and sealed.
Beef Jerky and Cheese
Beef Jerky provides for that protein high in-between meals. Though a little high on salt, they still are a healthy option since they do not have any fat or oils. Cheese cubes can be a great snack for vegetarians. There is something calming about nibbling on a bit of cheese while waiting for the fish to nibble on your bait.
Salads and Fruit

They really easy to carry and eat and provide for a significant amount of fiber and protein required for a fun day of fishing.

Chips, Pretzels, Cheese & Crackers
These are just right for that munching in-between meals. Though not the healthiest of options but who goes fishing every day. They are fun to nibble on and help to pass time during the boring wait for the fish. A little bit of indulgence is okay when the rest of the meals are healthy.
Along with all the snacks, one can carry, it is very important to stay hydrated. Fishing out in the sun and fresh air robs the body of water and moisture and makes it lethargic. Depending on the time you would be spending out in the sea, it’s a good idea to stock up on the water and also make sure you have an icebox to keep it cool. Having a considerable stock of water or even Gatorade goes a long way to ensuring a healthy and fun Deep-Sea fishing trip.
