On my low budget PCT hike we used canned tuna, canned chicken, canned crab
and canned shrimp (variety was a highly sought commodity after 6 months).
The 8 oz. tuna was the one we liked least. It has the most water and weighs
the most. I highly recommend 6 oz. cans of chicken. A can of shrimp in a
potful of Minute Rice was a favorite for the entire six months. We never
had any real bear problems even in Yosemite because our bear hangs were
effective enough. 

Did you get the fishing lures?
