Impulsive Charters

Established In 1995. If you’re looking for nothing but the very best, Impulsive Charters is eager to deliver! Join Captain Scott Simpson aboard the Impulsive and enjoy Mississippi fishing at its finest. Armed with dedication and a treasure trove of industry knowledge, he prides himself on providing outstanding service for each and every one of his guests. He knows these waters like the back of his hand and will make sure the trip is tailored to your individual needs.

His boat, the Impulsive, is one of the most recognized and well regarded on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. She’s a 25’ Stamas center console that’s powered by a single 250 HP Yamaha V8 engine. Equally suited for quick trips inshore as well as offshore trips for the bigger fish, she’ll get you to wherever you need to be in a snap.

Captain Scott’s specialty is fishing for the likes of Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Cobia, and more. He knows everything there is to know about catching the right fish at the right time while using the right bait. Not only has he been an instructor at several seminars dealing with saltwater fishing, but he’s also been featured on the TV show “World of Salt Water Fishing.”

Top of the line rods, reels, and tackle will be included in the price of any given trip, along with all the fishing licenses you’ll need. When you’re done and ready to head back, Captain Scott will clean and fillet the catch so you don’t have to. Get some snacks ready, bring a pair of polarized sunglasses, and we’ll see you on the water!
