Saltwater Therapy Custom Charters can give you the taste of Mississippi Gulf Coast fishing like no other company. This Biloxi fishing charter is your key to explore a myriad of aquatic opportunities available within a shirt boat ride.

Test the waters close to the shore bottom fishing for White Trout, Ground Mullet, and Black Drum, fish with live bait or wade for Trout, Redfish, and Sheepshead. Head to the Barrier islands to check what’s biting there or buzz down the shoreline for Shark, Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Pompano, and who knows what else. If you are an experienced angler, go for a night fishing adventure for Specks and Reds. And don’t forget about the Red Snapper season!

If non-stop year-round action sounds appealing, step aboard Captain Marcus’s 21’ Blazer bay boat. This is a well-maintained vessel that comes powered by a 175 HP Suzuki engine. A wireless trolling motor will enable a quiet ride, a live well will be loaded with bait to make your hooks irroestiable, and a multimedia system will help you relax in between the bites. The boat can comfortably take you and up to three fishing buddies.

Captain Marcus stays on the water and on the fish year round. Even the coldest weather can’t fool him: Marcus always follows the hottest bites in the bays and rivers even during the winter months.

But if fishing is not your main priority, the captain can take you to the islands to play, swim, and explore. Imagine sipping your favorite drink while cruising along the shoreline, taking in all the beauty of the local waters, enjoying the sights, and having fun with your family! Kids are also welcome to join the adventure, and there’s no age limit.

All trips come with a license, high-quality gear, tackle, and bait. The captain will clean and bag your catch when you return to the shore to make sure your weekly dinners are sorted out. Just grab something to eat and drink and welcome on board!

I am a firefighter and run charters on my days off from the fire house. I have been fishing the waters off of the Mississippi coast since i was old enough to hold a fishing pole. I stay on the water and on the fish year round. I fish for just about anything that swims in our waters. I don't just target one or two types of fish like a lot of people. That being said, my specialty is wade fishing the islands for Speckled Trout and Redfish.
