Q. How often does someone become sea sick?
A. Not very often, The BEST CHANCE TOO is a larger charter boat than most, which seems to help against motion sickness. The lake is calm for a large portion of the time. If you have low tolerance for motion, we suggest taking a motion sickness drug, like Dramamine II or a generic less drowsy brand the night before your fishing charter.
