The crew at Island Time Charters love what they do. They can think of no better way to spend their time than watching their clients having a wonderful day and sharing their love for the water with them. Captain Terry Boyd is an experienced captain who grew up on the Mississipi coast, and he’ll make sure you have a productive day.

The company was created with one simple goal in mind – to be on the water, and to have fun doing it. Now the crew has turned their passion into a reality and they invite you to come aboard and join in the fun.

Your vessel will be a 23’ Wellcraft center console powered by a 250 HP Suzuki engine. The boat features a T-Top that provides welcome shade on those hot, sunny days, and a portable toilet in the center console. The company considers safety to be a top priority and all crew members are certified in first aid and CPR.

This is a family-friendly charter service that welcomes up to 4 anglers on board at a time. The crew is made up of a captain and a deckhand, meaning everyone in your group will have all the help and instructions they could ask for during their trip.

Bottom fishing, trolling, and chumming all make up Capt. Terry’s arsenal of proven fishing techniques. He’ll provide you will all the fishing gear you’ll need, including rods, reels, and tackle. He’ll be happy to clean and fillet your catch so you can take it home and prepare a delicious dinner.

Choose between a half day and a full day trip and explore the amazing inshore and nearshore fishery the Mississippi coast has to offer. While you can catch a great deal of fish close to shore, longer trips will allow you to go further out and fish for Sharks, Cobia, Tripletail, Mackerel, and Sheepshead.

Join Island Time Charters and have an amazing fishing adventure off the coast of Mississipi!

    During our half day trips, we fish both inshore and offshore wrecks and reefs. On these trips, we try to not venture as far out as our full day trips so that we can start fishing as soon as possible to get you on the fish in a hurry.

    This is for those late sleepers. We won't venture out far but if the tide is in our favor; this will produce that second afternoon bite.
