I get sick about 60% of the time flat calm or 4' chop. I've found that if I stay hydrated eat a good breakfast and constantly snack on little stuff thru out the day I have a lot less sickness but when I do get sick the only thing that makes it better is stay busy do anything you can other than sit down to tie rigs looking down for to long will make it worse

The best cure,.... lay on your back in the grass under an oak tree.

Pop a dramamine the night before your trip then another about an hour or so before you leave the dock.. Make sure you take the less drowsy formula and get a good night sleep the night before.. Works great for me!

All good tips, I've never gotten sick either..rough or calm. But Ive been on a ton of trips where others have. Yea stay hydrated, full stomach and get in the water if you start to feel crappy. Always wear a pair of shades to so you're not 'squinting' all day long...given me migraines in the past.

Airflow is the biggest thing for me, as long as I am in good airflow on the boat, I am fine. If i go in the cabin on our boat or a charter, I get sick immediately. Diesel fumes may also be a cause. If you do get sick, go fish, or otherwise occupy your attention.

Motion Eze, it doesn't work for everyone but I haven't been sick in over four years since I started using it.

Keep your eyes on the horizon and face in the breeze if there is one. Never go in the cabin, it makes it 10x worse. I usually only get queasy when tying rigs looking down. Kinda like reading in a car. Walmart brand/equate motion sickness pills are the only ones that don't make me drowsy.
