Let work this through. If you take the bait, you may or may not catch a fish. If you take the beer, you will catch a buzz. Seems like classic bird in the hand. Take the beer and you have a guaranteed catch!

Rest assured this is a hypothetical quandary. I would never own a boat not capable of carrying beer AND bait...and if I did, I'd never admit it in a public forum!

It's sure been entertaining reading your replies, though!

The answer is obvious. It's only a 3 day trip.

It takes an hour or two to catch some baitfish, prawns, squid or cockles for bait.
It takes a couple weeks to brew some beer.

I'm pretty sure this question was on my six pack license quiz. I answered beer and passed the test so it must be so! Drink too much and you won't need bait, you'll have chum.

You need a licence to buy a six pack??
The rumours I heard seemed to indicate you only had to be at least 19.

Greetings,
Mr. T. You will notice that Mr. JC is from the sunny state of Florida. I've been there and you can't buy a 2-4 in the stores. Nobody can count past 21 even with their shoes off and their fly open. Just sayin'...

OMG - I have seen exactly THIS on NOT a 6-pack, but a 28-pax party boat... Those bridge painters were almost wasted by 10am - we had barely even gotten to the grounds. Yeah, lots of chum, and you know what else, those guys caught the most fish!!

I was like... no effing way... Geez!

Seems plenty of us took the bait.
The beer/caught fish refrigeration thing is easy, the beer stock should reduce at the same rate as the fish catch increases,filling the space left by the "now reconstituted" beer.

Take the beers, shake well, line them up against a safe background.
From 100 yards tap each in the centre with a fast moving piece of lead
that has a hollow point (Remington Yellowjackets come to mind).
Enjoy the show with no danger of fire from pyrotechnics.
Tell the local kiddies to pick up the cans for deposit return.
Take bait, go fishing with a good feeling.
You had a good show, were eco-mined (had the remains collected),
gave youth a job that would return them a fiscal advantage.
All-round a good fellow, civically resposible.

Let's say that due to some freak in nature, you arrive at the dock with your bait and beer to load aboard and cast off for a dream 3-day fishing trip. You learn that you can either load your bait OR your beer, but not both!

Which do you take and why?
Beer. You can catch bait

Al, you always bring the beer!



Check the boat's freezer for bait.

I'm guessing this is some new proposal from Sacramento to further regulate the nanny state. Simple solution is to move (at least the boat) to a more sane state. Everybody knows that you can't fish without beer.
