Default Party boat suggestions?

I'm taking my son on a party boat out of Destin tomorrow. We pier fish, fish docks, and kayak fish inshore. Other than that, only boats we've been on have been cobia hunting.
I've never been on a party boat, but thought I'd take him before he starts back at school.

Just wondering if there are any hints that can make the trip more enjoyable and /or productive.

I already heard to try to get to the back of the boat...

Anything else? Any suggestions are appreciated.

Which one are you thinking about going out on? Destiny? Destin Princess?

Get a good spot on the back, relax, be friendly to the mates and the people around you. It can get pretty frustrating with the amount of people on those head boats. If you want special service slip the mate something BEFORE you start.

I have never been on one before, but i heard olin marler's is a pretty good boat. I think the have a 50 footer thats a walk around that takes a max of 15 people out. So plenty of room . dont mark my words though...

Probably don't need to say this, but, a little patch for motion sickness goes a long way, and they don't work after you get sick!!

I'd bring some cigar minnows. It might give you a chance at some larger fish. Destin Princess typically only provides cut squid and mackeral for bait.

Thanks, guys. Never tried the patch. I usually take the Dramamine pills, but they make me drowsy.

I've got some frozen cigs and popeyes in the freezer, so I think I may take them.
Don't have any live and probably won't get a chance to get any before we go

Like Bayfisher said. Slip the mate a 10 spot before you start fishing. Have fun!

Bonine at bed time and bonine with breakfast works for my crew, and no drowsiness.

Have fun!
