    its not also that Im trying to cure her seasickness,,, LOL just don't wanna waste lot of fuel just for her to get sick then have to come back in,, She likes fishing the river, but really any fish she catches is good time for her, so that's why im thinking right off the beach,, should be some pretty good action from what im reading as far as other posts, whether its sharks , tarpon or anything....

    I get sea sick some times. I have been using Bonine. I take one the night before and again the next morning. Seems to be working pretty good.

    Go out with live bait and look for the bait pods. You should see some tarpon busting on them close to shore.

    Last week I found a school of mullet around the end of the jetty that kept my grandson entertained so he didn't get sick. It was pretty cool to watch the dolphins trying to break up the school and the sharks kept them jumping too. We started by going to the bouys to catch some bait on a sabiki rig and one rig kept us both busy.

    if you pick a good day, and stay close to the beach, the motion wont be much different from the river
