Silver Dollar III Charters

Based in Biloxi, the Silver Dollar III is one of the largest charter boats on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Add to that the expertise of Biloxi’s most experienced charter fishing family, and you are in for an unbeatable experience. Whether you’re bringing just a couple of friends or the entire company on board, rest assured you can enjoy a smooth ride and superb fishing.

The Trochesset family has over 50 years of charter fishing experience, a trade that is now four generations strong. Trips are guided by Captain Jay and his son, Captain Dustin. They know these waters well and can guarantee that you will have a day to remember while fishing aboard the Gulf Coast’s leading boat.

The Silver Dollar III is a 52’ by 20’ Sportfish Catamaran, custom built in 2009. Her twin hull makes for a smooth and stable ride across the waves. She comes equipped with industry-leading technology for weather, navigation, and luxury. On board you will find top of the line fishing gear and everything else you need.

You might just forget you’re even on a boat while resting inside the spacious interior. Restrooms, padded seating, and air conditioning cater to your comfort. There is room on board for up to 44 passengers. A leisurely cruise suits 40 guests comfortably, while a sport fishing adventure is perfect for 25.

You can spend your time in Biloxi fishing for anything from Redfish and Speckled Trout to Mahi Mahi and a variety of Sharks. In spring and summer, your captain can take you as far as 25 miles from shore. In June, you can enjoy excellent Snapper fishing while casting lines in water 65 feet deep and below.

Silver Dollar III Charters include a fishing license and gear.

Even when you aren’t looking to catch fish, the boat is just as suitable for a family reunion or friendly gathering. Book a cruise for several hours and come make some memories on the water!

Member since October 2017
At the age of 12, Captain Jay Trochesset worked with his father on the charter boat Gay Jay, deckhanding during the summers of high school and college. He purchased his first boat, the Silver Dollar, in 1974, and thus his career as a licensed charter boat captain began. As the business grew, Jay and his father J.P. spent the better part of three years designing and building the Silver Dollar I, a 50' fiberglass sports fisherman. In 1997, Jay christened his third boat the Silver Dollar II. He now operates the Silver Dollar III, a custom built 52' Catamaran purchased in 2009. Jay won People's Choice Award for Favorite Fishing Charters, Biloxi Business Men's Club Award for 50 years of Service in the charter boat business. His most memorable honor was being inducted into the IGFA Hall of Fame in 2016. Captain Jay's son, Dustin runs trips aboard 'Big Fish' and focuses on inshore light tackle trips. If you want some juicy table fare, book a trip with him.
