If you are looking for that one company that works hard to put people on fish, give Skipper Charters a try. A family business for two generations, they are an excellent choice.

Your captain, Frank Becker, and his deckhand Mitchell will take care of all your needs. They truly care that their customers have the best fishing experience possible.

Join them in Biloxi and enjoy the finest angling Mississippi has to offer. Spend your day exploring the productive grounds anywhere from 10 up to 30 miles offshore.

All the trips of 8 hours and less will see you bottom fishing and trolling around the islands and water reefs. Your potential catches will include White Trout, Ground Mullet, Bonito, Cobia, Jack Crevalle, Spanish and King Mackerel, various types of Sharks, and Bull Redfish.

If all this sounds exciting, hop onboard the ‘Skipper,’ a 40’ Glen Young boat with plenty of space for up to 18 anglers. Bring your whole family with you – the crew enjoys fishing with the younger anglers!

The Skipper has been putting people on fish since 1987. It comes powered by twin 300 HP Cummins engines and is fully outfitted with navigational and fishfinding electronics. The Skipper has a cabin with air-conditioning, a restroom, and a booth table to enjoy your snacks.

The crew won’t set in one place all day and without catching anything – you will travel to where the fish are biting. All trips include the use of different types of rods and reels, as well as Open Face reels depending on the fishing. Fishing licenses and lures are also included in the price, and you’ll be treated to lunch at a small additional cost. When you come back to shore, the crew will clean and fillet your catch for you.
