Traditions of the Shore Lunch
When fishing on a Lake of the Woods Charter, you only need to make 2 decisions each day: What am I going to wear? What am I going to eat?
We have your answer.
A traditional shore lunch is a great option. Let me lay out the picture for you. It’s a summer day on a Lake of the Woods charter boat. Sun on your face and wind in your hair. The bucket full of fish next to you and the noon sun is just above you as the lunch hour hunger hits. You guide pulls onto shore and you and the crew stick your feet in the sand and enjoy a cold beverage overlooking the lake as your guide prepares your morning’s catch for you. Lunch is served fresh, hot, and ready with all the fixing picnic style on what could be the perfect day on the perfect vacation.
Shore lunch is a Lake of the Woods specialty, true to each resort or guide making it especially for you. You fish cannot be any fresher, baked beans, potatoes, onions, bread, and more are at your finger tips. It is a great way to take a break from the boat as shore lunch is just that, on shore. Captains will serve to customers at many locations including: Zippel Bay State Park, Garden Island, or upon one of the many islands when fishing Canadian waters. Each guide has their special recipe for breading or way of making lunch just right. Some will make you an appetizer, possibly a fresh blackened northern peppered and seared on a hot cast iron.
This is a great idea for families and groups. It gives guests a chance to walk around and stretch out their legs and take a mid day break, ready to hit the afternoon bite. Make sure to request this when making your resevation, you will not be sorry! There is just ONE PROBLEM with a shore lunch. The fish is so fresh and the view so beautiful, it will ruin any fish fry you will have at home!
