Bring all your food and drinks. If you want to bring beer you should clear it with the charter Captain first.

A duffle bag is a good idea to bring for carrying your rain gear, extra tee shirt, hat, and other personal items that you need to bring on a salt water fishing trip.

Bring a ball cap or a fishing hat to protect you from the intense sun. Remember the ocean intensifies the suns glare and can cause you to burn much quicker than on land.

Not as important on a large sportfishers with the luxery of a "floating family room" with all the amenities but on vessels without a cabin you certainly should bring some rain gear or foul weather gear.

Bring sun glasses. Preferrably polarized fishing glasses to lessen the sun's glare that reflects up off the water. Bring a camera to take snapshots of those big game fish you release and better yet bring your video camera to capture the charter fishing action.

For the same reason you wear your hat on the water you will want plenty of sun screen especially if you easily burn. The suns effects are doubly strong on the water and without sunscreen can cause you to burn very quick. If you get sea sick or aren't sure if you get sea sick then it is a very wise idea to take your Dramamine before you leave the dock. Nothing can ruin a fishing trip worse than a guy named "RALPH".

Also depending on what type of fishing you will be doing you may need a large cooler for your fish. Something on shore or in your vehicle, At least something to carry your catch home in.
