@houstonwhodat:  Have you guys been fishing before? You might not want to hear this, but deep sea fishing in Cancun was one of the worst days I’ve had – ever! We didn’t catch anything (no one on the boat did)… and everyone on the boat was sick. Waves were crashing onto the boat and puke was floating around. It was disgusting. Some people had to lie down in the small cabin area of the boat. My ex and I were the only ones who didn’t throw up out of I think there was 10 of us. I felt sick for the rest of the day after we finally got back to the hotel. To add insult to injury, I also got sunburned because I didn’t bring any sunscreen with me to reapply and the water that kept coming into the boat washed it off.

With that said, if you do like to fish and you know what to expect, go for it. I would never do this again. My coworker wanted to go and I told him the story and he went anyway, then told me he regretted it for similar reasons.

ETA: I just saw he’s been fishing a lot. Maybe this trip will be fine then??

@houstonwhodat:  Yeah, I would seriously consider letting the boys go. NEVER AGAIN. If you do go, take some Gravol. And focus on the horizon… I did for about 3 hours trying hard not to throw up. Sigh.

ETA: It was a beautiful sunny day, but when you start to get away from shore, the waves do get big even if it isn’t stormy.

I went Deep Sea fishing out of Cancun and it was great!  I don’t know what company it was through as my in-laws booked it but our boat was just the 5 of us and the crew and we caught a TON of fish!  I swear – sometimes it seemed like there was always something new on the line!  And we didn’t have rough seas at all either.

I even reeled in an African Pompano which was huge!  Even the boat crew got excited when we got it aboard as they said they hardly ever catch those.
