Fishing in Mississippi


Have you ever wondered “what can I experience in the outdoors in Gulf Coast?” On the Top of the Things to do in Mississippi, you will discover all that state has to offer. This means exploring out of your comfort zone or the sandy beaches. Whether you are traveling to Mississippi for business, family get-a-way or to try your luck at the casinos, getting outdoors is a must. A Mississippi Fishing Charter is one of the BEST ways to do so!

Mississippi Gulf Coast fishing charters include inshore and offshore or also know as deep-sea fishing. We now offer Mississippi fishing trips in Biloxi and Gulfport.

Our Mississippi fishing charters provide the opportunity to land the legendary Redfish the local favorite fish. But the Gulf coast charters are offered both for deep-sea and more popular inshore. While the Mississippi Gulf Coast has taken many hits, the last one by Hurricane Katrina was hard. Even with these natural disasters, the fishing in Mississippi has kept all its top traits.

Many anglers and professional Mississippi fishing charters call the water their home, the local tourism and casinos bring eager anglers from all other the world. When fishing in Mississippi, it’s done mainly around marshes, lakes, creeks, and runoffs. Also common is to fish around the hundreds of grass islands and reefs for Cobia, Redfish, Sharks, Trout and more.

A couple of popular Mississippi techniques we specialize in, is fly fishing, offshore and/or spin tackle fishing charters near Horn, Ship Island, Gulfport, and the Bay. On all our charters you have the option to fish with, lures, livebait or dead bait on all the Mississippi chartered fishing trips. We love and enjoy catering to family-friendly charters on all attractions along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, offering several convenient options for your schedule. Starting at 4 hr trip, all the way up to a 12-hour fishing trip.

The fun of fishing is what’s drives everyone to go, also why it was voted one of the Top Things to do in Mississippi. To make sure you do, we offer exciting fishing within a reach of a short trip, so schedule a Mississippi fishing charter and let your vacation start off with a bang, we guarantee you will be hooked up!

Trips can be booked online, we also provide activities for bachelorette parties, bachelor parties, honeymoons, and corporate parties and most importantly just a fun fishing trip for you. Whatever the occasion, you don’t need a reason, a charter fishing in Mississippi fun past time and a great way to enjoy life on the water.

Rules & Regulations

Our guest anglers don’t need to purchase a fishing license if the charter captain possesses it.
Charter operators fishing south of Highway 90 need to have a saltwater fishing license. From there and up to Interstate 10, they can have either a saltwater or freshwater license and further up north, they’ll need a freshwater license.

All anglers who go fishing for Snappers, Groupers, Triggerfish, and Amberjacks, need to have and use non-stainless steel circle hooks when using natural baits.

Types of Fishing

Mississippi Inshore fishing, you can catch plenty of the local Redfish, commonly using shrimp, blue crabs, and of course who don’t like topwater lures. Trout is one of the most popular fish in the nation to fish for, they can be caught year-round, but peak in spring and fall. Again, using shrimp, popping cork and topwater lures.

Mississippi Gulf Coast fishing charters offer a lot of water options. We commonly use trolling, bottom fishing, light or heavy tackle, jigging, and more.
When bottom fishing, we use heavy tackle for Red Snapper. These red beauties live and love hanging around underwater structures. You can catch them only in deeper water, which in many cases is in Federal waters and have a very specific season to when they can be caught and harvested. You can catch them on cut fish, so most of the bait is cut fresh onboard the vessel. Artificial reefs are one of the favorite places for Red, Mangrove and Vermillion Snapper to hangout.

When fishing for Kings, trolling is the only method. As they move around the Gulf, you can find them at various latitudes, offshore and shoal waters alike. Feisty, Cobia, locally called ‘lemonfish’, flock around buoys and anchored vessels. We use small catfish and white mullet as live bait, but we can also jig and see if Cobia will chase it. Catch hard-fighting Amberjacks with a line testing 50 +lb tackle. If you would prefer to try catching them on light tackle or fly, were happy to accommodate as well.
