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.

Book your trip for early in the morning. We booked a full day trip, but it was shortened to a half day due to extreme heat warning. We are thankful to have had a captain that kept safety in mind first, and still got us out to get an amazing fishing trip in!

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.

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.

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!

Wonderful day. Had fun bait fishing for a few minutes in the harbor then off to the the spot. Caught 2 reds in a few minutes. Two more within few more minutes and hit our limit. Caught and released 4 more before we went trolling and looking for dolphins for my wife. Chris found the dolphins and we had fun catching 3 hard fighting jacks before the trip was over. Chris know the area and the trip was a pleasure.

When we were booking this trip, I wasn’t sure which charter to go with, but I’m very happy that we chose Captain Ben and Captain Ryan! They really made our day. We had a few specific requests and they definitely accommodated and more. We had a great time and learned a lot. Before the trip, we had a few questions and I was able to message Captain Ben and he responded very quickly and was so excited to make our trip the best it could be. I would definitely recommend them!

This was the most amazing fishing trip I’ve been on. They were very knowledgeable and personable. Fish are a fickle creature and they still got us a haul. The only downside though this rating is I’m only able to go as high as a 5. This trip was definitely a 10.

We had a great trip with Captain Scott. Scott is a very knowledgeable and personable guide. His fishing technique instruction was very thorough. When the bite was on , Scott didn’t miss a beat. Watching my wife pull in three sharks was the highlight of the trip. I highly recommend this 4 hour charter.
