Seasickness can happen to anyone but there are a few things you can do before and during your time on the boat that may lessen your chance of getting sea sick. Avoid eating a heavy breakfast before boarding the boat and go with a smaller bland choice. Don’t “party” too hard the night before and try to get a good night’s rest. If you are prone to motion sickness, over the counter medications like Dramamine can help if taken the night before and during the trip. There is also a “patch” that can be prescribed by your doctor.
Keeping your eyes on the horizon will lessen your chance of becoming sea sick while on the boat. If you go in the cabin, be sure you can see outside and keep an eye on the horizon.
If you start feeling queasy on the boat, breathe through your mouth and go to the back, center of the boat. This is where the motion is the least and breathing through your mouth helps keep the smells of exhaust and bait down.
If you get sick, be sure to stay hydrated. Many old timers say “sea sickness is all in your head” so don’t think about it and enjoy your fishing trip and you should be fine.
