Catching On Fishing Charters

The waters surrounding Pascagoula offer for incredibly varied and bountiful fishing. The area is full of small inlets, bays, river estuaries, and islands, which create a perfect situation for inshore and nearshore species to feed and thrive. Catching On Fishing Charters capitalizes on this fact and brings you to the best fishings spots to put you on the hottest bite around!

You will fish from their 28’ Blue Wave 2800 Purehybrid center console, capable of holding you and three of your fishing friends in comfort. She’s powered by a single Suzuki engine with a whopping 350 HP – that allows the boat to develop an impressive maximum cruising speed of 48 knots. There’s a wireless trolling motor on board, so you can sneak up on the fish and keep your cast steady. A livewell is also available, to keep your live bait spry and enticing throughout your trip.

Captain Terry Pratt will take you fishing after a variety of exciting local species, such as the Redfish, Cobia, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Tripletail, Pompano, Sheepshead, as well as Red Snapper, when in season. The techniques used are tried-and-tested classics, drift and bottom fishing with light tackle. You’ll mainly fish the bountiful inshore waters around Pascagoula, with the occasional trip south to the islands, where Red Snapper and other nearshore species live.

The charter will provide you with all required equipment. The crew will clean, fillet, and bag your catch free of charge, though gratuity is always appreciated. Customers are advised to bring sunscreen, polarized sunglasses, adequate clothing, and a waterproof camera to take pictures of their trophy catch!

Fishing has been in my blood my entire life. I grew up fishing lakes and rivers around my hometown of Meridian, MS. My dad and granddad had a passion for Bass fishing and started me out young, learning the techniques and patience it took to chase these fish. As I grew older, I found myself learning more, paying more attention, and of course catching more fish. It wasn’t until I was grown, that I got the opportunity to experience saltwater fishing. I was given a charter trip for one of my birthdays, and it was then I realized what I had missing out on. I started from that day on learning everything I could about every inshore species out there. I would listen to anyone who would give me advice and found myself learning and fishing from some of the very best. There is nothing like hearing the sound of screaming reel, as a big Redfish is ripping through the water; or seeing someone grin ear to ear when they just landed their biggest fish ever.
