Fish Assassin Saltwater Charters

Join Fish Assassin Inshore Charters for an action-packed day of fishing on the gorgeous Mississippi Gulf Coast! The area has to offer some of the best year-round fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Captain Brian Ware has been fishing this area since he was a young child, so there aren’t many honey holes he hasn’t found, and he’ll take you to all the best spots.

You’ll be fishing aboard the “Fish Assassin,” a 21’ Bay Stealth center console boat. The boat runs on a 200 HP Yamaha 4-stroke engine, and it’s the perfect vessel for small groups and family trips. The bow of the boat is equipped with an I-pilot trolling motor for shallow waters. The Fish Assassin has all the gear to stay on course and to have a trip to remember!

It features a Lowrance Hook2-12 GPS, which includes a depth finder, side imaging, and sonar, as well as a stereo system and VHF Radio. The bow of the boat is equipped with an I-pilot trolling motor for shallow waters. You’ll be able to easily sneak up on those fearful specimens without spooking them!

The waters off the coast of Mississippi are brimming with wildlife, and you’ll find that there’s plenty of species to target in the area. You’ll have the opportunity to catch creatures like Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Snapper, Mackerel, Tripletail, and Jack Crevalle.

Capt. Brian will provide you with all the fishing gear you may need on this fishing excursion. He’ll be more than happy to clean and fillet your catch so you can taste the fruits of your labor upon return. Remember to pack a cooler to carry your catch home with you. The captain encourages you to bring all the snacks and drinks of your liking, and he’ll provide ice and the cooler.

Book a trip with Fish Assassin Saltwater Charters! It’ll be the first of many great adventures together!
