There is more to fishing than catching fish!

Fish is a lifestyle that’s reflected in the clothes you wear, the car you drive and even the food you eat. In that spirit, Bait Barn is now selling gourmet beef jerky by Bigfoot’s Western BBQ Company. You might think not getting a bite is about the worst thing that can happen on a fishing trip. The only thing worse is realizing your food provisions are insufficient or about as appetizing as spending the day antiquing with your mother-in-law. It’s awful tempting to turn around when you’re hungry and the bite isn’t happening. It’s absolute torture when you’re torn by the action on the water and the demands of your stomach.

With just a little bit of preparation, you can make sure you never have to cut a fishing trip short again because hunger has gotten the best of you. Bigfoot’s Western BBQ Company knows the challenges of being properly equipped and comfortable for a day on the water. That is why Bigfoot’s gourmet beef jerky comes in five distinct flavors to satisfy the palettes of anglers and outdoorsmen of all stripes. You’re bound to find a favorite with flavors like Forest Fire(hot and spicy), Fujiyaki(traditional teriyaki), Buck Shot(black pepper), Bandido BBQ(smoky mesquite bbq) and the robust Original Recipe.
There are many beef jerky products on the market. The cheapest grades are little more than beef byproduct encapsulated in a waxy glaze. There’s no mistaking Bigfoot’s jerky with typical products you might find at your local convenience store. Tear into it and it’s obvious we use real whole beef, not reconstituted byproducts. Bigfoot’s state of the art USDA approved processing facility is equipped with custom engineered equipment to control the drying process with scientific accuracy.
Jerky is the perfect carry aboard food. In a compact resealable pouch it stays fresh for months at a time. It doesn’t stain or spill. You can eat it with your hands. It’s a nutritious high-protein, low-fat snack. You can share it. You never know when you might take the kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews or friends fishing. Having an emergency backup supply of Bigfoot’s jerky is always a good idea. When you are rummaging aboard your boat, it is always a pleasant surprise to find a bag of jerky you’ve forgotten. It’s like finding money in the dryer, except it tastes better.
Even though jerky is a worthy endeavor all on it’s own, Bigfoot’s Western BBQ Company is not standing still. They are hard at work developing other delicious, high quality products. As of the time of this writing, they are available online exclusively through Bait Barn at Keep up with Bigfoot’s Western BBQ Company at
