A Traditional 1000 Island's Picnic Lunch
Since we introduced this two years ago, it has become our most popular on-shore lunch option.

    Taking only a little over one hour, this lunch option has quickly became our most popular offering. It offers a great conclusion to your morning of fishing by going ashore on one of the 1000 Islands and enjoying a traditional 1000 Islands family style picnic cookout. It's a great conclusion to a morning of fishing on a six hour trip.


    Leaving the dock after boarding at 7 A.M. you will fish through the morning and then we'll head to our Guide's cookout grounds on Grindstone Island. While you relax and watch the boats go by, your guide will make an open wood fire, set the table with a table cloth, plates, utensils and lunch items and prepare your choice of either broiled hamburgers & hot dogs or a BBQ Chicken lunch over an wood open fire.
    Your lunch is assembled by a local catering firm on the morning of your trip and delivered to the boat just before leaving to pick you up. It includes your choice of either 6 oz. freshly ground all beef burgers & hot dogs or fresh chicken legs and thighs, cooked over the open fire and basted with a tangy BBQ sauce. Your choice is accompanied by their homemade macaroni salad, tasty Deviled eggs, Dill pickle spears and appropriate condiments based on your choice of lunch, all served
family style. Your only responsibility is to bring your own canned or plastic bottled beverages, your cooler and ice.
    Our on shore prepared lunches are professionally assembled for preparation by the catering company, whose cook rises and shines at 4 A.M. in order to assemble the ingredients and get them to the boat by 6:30 A.M. Our guide prepared island picnic cook-out lunches are $20 per person, including tax and delivery.
    After lunch it's a ride back to Clayton, returning to the dock around 1:15 P.M.
