Default how to beat sea sickness

i'm curious how you guys go deep sea fishing and manage to not get sick

some people do not get effected at all because they do not have fluid imbalances in the ears.. 33% of the population and most animals.. but for the 66% of us its absolute hell.

My thing is to stay busy. It can be a mental thing. I never get sea sick on my own boat because I am always busy driving and doing other things. But I do get sick on other people's boats occasionaly due to just relaxing on the boat between spots in the seas.

There are actually about thirteen receptors that are responsible for nausea and vomiting. Medically you can only treat about 4-5 of them. There are several OTC meds you can take, Meclizine, Benedryl, and most others have the same ingredients with different names. Best thing to do for me has been the following.
1. Get a good nights rest and get a prescription for the following:
2. Place a Scopolamine Patch on the night before your trip.
It will last three days. It will also make you have a dry mouth and blurred vision when you first awaken. The patch will make you sleepy at first that is why I place them on at night.
3. Zofran 10 mg by mouth under your toungue the morning you leave out.
4. Drink Plenty of water as well.

I have battled this problem and have found the more you fish the less you are affected by sea sickness. I will tell you though I have seen men that have fished all there life get sea sick. It can happen anytime and to any one so dont let it get you down. Man up and catch some fish.

Good Luck

Jump in the water for a minute! Works every time with the people I take out ( When I can get them to get in). The key is not to wait until you are about to throw up. As soon as you start feeling it, get in. You don't have to swim just hold on to the back of the boat. ( I do realize this isnt feasible for some boats. That is just what I do!

That method has been 100 percent effective for people I take out. I personally do not get seasick, however, I picked that trick up from a charter captain with tons of experience!

Very true! Try ginger snaps also as the ginger helps relieve nausea, works great for my wife, and several clients that have tried it!

One thing I've heard from coast guard friends is to eat a huge breakfast... probably a good idea to do that anyway if you plan on fishing a long trip!

Also young living sells peppermint oil. The smell of the peppermint oil works about half the time. I only pull that out for the people who refuse to get in the water ( I even offered to get in with them!!) I don't understand Why you would rather feel sick all day rather than getting a little wet!! I guess people are just scared of the unknown!! :/
