My brain is blank for this upcoming trip and the clock is ticking. Es anyone have a checklist of what to bring on the trip, other than fishing equipment and tackle?

Need your help as I'm also bringing my nephew on his first ling range trip and I do t even remember where my check list went or what is even on the check list.

Thank you for your help as I'm just drawing blanks.

I have the following so far:

Hydrogen Peroxide to wash hands
Toiletries
Clothes -shorts, long pants, t-shirts (long and shot sleeves), sweatshirt,...
Sunscreen
Sunglasses
Hat
Boots
Passport
CA fishing license
Towels


:D I talk with every part I send out and each reel I repair so that they perform at the top of their game. :D

Only things I have on my list that you don't is a small flashlight (mine doubles as a UV squid lure light), a light windbreaker, and a bottle of WT101.  :)
Optional items - reading material (I bring a Kindle) and a folding chair. At my age, the chair isn't really an option.

I bring an insulated mug with a lid that won't tip over easy for assorted beverages.
a roll of tuna cord or tarred siene cord to tie down my tackle box.
some kind of "crying" towel with a clip to hang on my belt to wipe scales off my hands
couple trash bags for dirty clothes
Do what you can with that you have where you are

I never go fishing without my Bubba pliers or at least Leatherman. Rest you guys have covered.
Tums, ibuprofin.

I take a spray bottle to spray off my reels with water at the end of the day and to wet the line when I first pick it up in the day.

I can't place my list on a reply.....Bryan I sent you a pm for your email address I should be able to send it that way...Bill
It may not be very productive,
but it's sure going to be interesting!

Here is my checklist that I shared with Bill earlier - I am sure there is a lot of room for improvement!  That is what this Ohana Forum is for!  I did it by hand for many years (I like checklists) and then a few years back decided to actually digitize it.  And my fishing buddy does laugh at me (he is out on the Seeker RP trip right now).  Anyhow, here is my list, it works for ME (so if you see something that does not make sense like Cheeze Its, fine).  For guys that are newbies to the long range scene....
The stuff in the attached list is pretty much personal items only.  Getting into the minutiae of exactly which number of Mustad hooks to bring is not what my list is about.  My tackle bag is my tackle bag, separate topic.  And there are guys here smarter than I to counsel on that topic.
As far as what I have listed, if it seems like a lot, here are my thoughts from my fishing buddy when I first went:
If in doubt, bring it.
You can't bring too much.
Now, those are both tongue in cheek, but my typical 8 day (based on the attached checklist) usually breaks down into:
1.  Military duffle bag
2.  Penn dry bag
3.  Tackle bag (lives on deck)
4.  Reel Bag (once rigged up lives in stateroom)
5.  Rod bundle

Also, (and I credit my buddy for this) we keep a stack of heavy duty storage tubs instead of ice chests.  The pro's are that they nest and do not take up much room as opposed to ice chests.  And when we leave the processor they are usually pretty generous with the ice.  BUT  I will say we only live a couple hours away from the landings AND we both have enclosed vehicles, so it is not like the sun is beating down on the tubs.  It has never been a problem, but again we are relatively close. - john

Gfish

Hate to say it Bryan; masks.
Fishing tackle is an art form and all fish caught on the right tackle are"Gfish"!

Hamachi

I think they still want you to bring your own pillows and blankets. Other than that, your list looks pretty complete.
The rail is your friend, no zing pow, on the iron wenches, I like broccoli!

Does anyone know what additional things will be required for us to bring, like Hamachi mention, pillows and blanket?  Anyone in contact with Andrea or Evan Kraft?

One thing I like to bring on long range trips is a folding chair similar to the ones you take to parks. It's nice to have a place to sit on Deck during long travel times.

Down to hooks and a few small items.  What does the bait situation look like?
