Deep sea fishing is a great way to explore the oceans and experience the rush when having a fish on the line. This short guide will help cover the basics and some extras when you are going out on your first trip. 
 - Fishing license (Depending on where you are, where you get your license will vary)

- Cash for cleaning fish, food, and other things on the boat. Try to bring smaller bills for tipping.

- Rod, Reel, and Line (You can always rent or bring your own)

- Your favorite snacks.

- Sunblock (You will need this since you will be out on the open seas)

- Hat

- Sunglasses

- Towels or small heavy-duty tissues.

- Camera (Though DSLRs are great, a quality point and shoot or GoPro will be most convenient)

- Seasickness medication. You want to get a good night sleep prior and no heavy food for breakfast to help reduce your sea sickness.

- Water. Though you are not moving much it is always good to stay hydrated.

- Ice Chest with Ice (to bring your fish back fresh)

This list should cover most of your needs and wants on a fishing trip. Go out there and catch some fish. We are confident you will enjoy your time and will want to pursue this awesome lifestyle.
