    Ward Off Motion Sickness

    If you are a novice fisherman who has never gone deep sea fishing, be prepared for the onset of motion sickness. There are over-the-counter medications you can take to alleviate the symptoms of motion sickness. Even if you’ve never experienced motion sickness before, bring medication along with you in case you start feeling sick. After all, you don’t want to have your deep-sea fishing trip ruined by a bout of motion sickness.

    Dress Appropriately

    Depending on when you will be embarking on your deep-sea fishing trip, make sure to dress appropriately for the weather you will encounter. Even on warm spring days, winds off the Atlantic and frigid ocean water spray can cause your body temperature to drop. Bring a poncho in case of rain, and pack an extra sweater or two to ensure that you are comfortable on your trip.
