Hop aboard one of the many Gulfport, MS, fishing charters on offer, and you’ll discover that casting a line here is just as exciting as winning big on the slots! With access to shallow marshes, sandy barrier islands, vibrant reefs, and deep offshore waters, there’s something for every type of angler here.
 
Experiencing Gulfport’s shallow water action is a must. Its local marshes are home to huge Speckled Trout and Redfish. They’re fun to catch, especially on light tackle, and taste great. You’ll also encounter Black Drum, Tripletail, Sheepshead, and Flounder. Gigging for this Flatfish is a true Mississippi tradition! You’ll find charters running anything from half day to full day trips, so you can experience as much inshore action as you like.
 
If you want to head further offshore, you can cast your line in waters that are just as fish-filled. Gulfport’s nearshore reefs are bustling with Cobia, famous Red Snapper, and a variety of Grouper species. To get the most out of your trip, opt for a full day on the water. Looking to battle world-famous big game species? Commit to a trip running 12+ hours, and you’ll come across Tuna species, Mahi Mahi, and a variety of Billfish.
 
Gulfport’s shoreline is dotted with a variety of charter vessels. No matter where you choose to depart from, you’ll have the bays, reefs, and open ocean at your disposal!

January

The weather can be unpredictable in January, and getting offshore is often impossible. Hit the marshes instead to enjoy endless hookups in dense schools of Specks and Redfish.

February

Trout and Redfish are still packed tightly into the shallows in February. Battle the cold winds and you’ll be rewarded with a cooler full of tasty fish. Black Drum and Sheepshead are also on fire.

March

The weather is a lot more pleasant in March, giving you even more reasons to head out in search of big hookups. Red and Black Drum, Speckled Trout, and Sheepshead top the bill.

April

Everyone’s waiting for the first sign of Cobia. Grouper start to show up on the reefs and Sheepshead move out of the shallows. King Mackerel are on fire, and Bonito are around in force.

May

Amberjack are usually open for harvest in May. The Cobia migration is in full swing, too, giving you even more reasons to hit the reefs. Inshore, Reds and Specks are getting bigger and meaner.

June

The Mississippi Gulf Coast Billfish Classic and Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo offer huge prizes for ambitious anglers. Otherwise, it’s Red Snapper season! Head out and fill your freezer!

July

Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, White Marlin, and more are waiting for you in the depths of the Gulf of Mexico. Red Snapper should still be open this time of year, and Cobia are often still around.

August

Amberjack is back on the menu in August The heat and high humidity can be punishing this time of year. If you can’t take it, head out at night to fish for Tarpon or gig for Flounder.

September

Tripletail are the talk of the town this time of year. Fishing for them is almost as enjoyable as eating them, so jump aboard and catch your fill. The reefs are still alive with Amberjack and Grouper.

October

October brings a welcome end to the scorching heat of summer. This is a great time to fish the oyster beds and shallow structure for Speckled Trout and Redfish. It’s your last chance to bag Amberjack.

November

Find the right spot, and you can hit your limits of Specks and Redfish in a couple of hours in November. There are a lot fewer boats out this time of year, too, meaning more water for you!

December

Sheepshead and Black Drum roll back into the bays in December. The Gulfport Harbor Winter Lights Festival will give you a healthy dose of seasonal cheer as you step aboard your boat.

The bite was great, but the fish were all pretty small. It was a great time catching the fish, we just didn't get to keep many.

As with any time of the year, great fishing on the Coast depends a lot on the weather conditions. Some months better than others but there are always plenty of fish to catch.

Make sure you wear a hat and sunscreen and take lots of water to drink. It was really hot! Go with an experienced Caption who can get you on the fish.

Best way to fish is by boat on the inshore reefs or out by the islands. Get a great charter boat like Impulsive with Captain Scott Simpson.

This was our first trip fishing on the gulf. We were very happy with the number and size of fish we caught. Recommend the enclosed boat due to lower temperatures in the mornings.

Target Specks. They are fun to catch and their native habitat in the barrier islands is beautiful.

Let him take you to the reefs inshore so you find out if you enjoy being in a boat. Some people can’t handle the waves. Then go out to deep water on your next trip!

Captain McGill and Gary made this fishing trip so fun! We caught 5 huge Red fish, 4 Catfish that were decent size,, 1 Spinner shark, and a bunch of Jack fish. Captain McGill was great at finding fish. We caught our limit in Reds really fast. We also saw dolphins. This was by far the best ocean fishing trip we’ve had. I can’t wait to do it again.
