Fishing in Gulf of Mexico

The Gulf of Mexico is an angling mecca, with legendary waters that are home to plenty of world-famous nearshore, inshore, and offshore fish species. Even better? With Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida all providing access to its waters, there’s a whopping number of Gulf of Mexico fishing charters to choose from. 
 
When it comes to inshore fishing, the Gulf’s coastal waters are legendary. They’re home to Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Jack Crevalle, Snook, Tarpon, and many more, and you’ll be able to cast a line year-round. There’s plenty of action in the Gulf’s shallows, bays, and estuaries to fill up a full day trip, and a half day trip is the perfect introduction to angling for new anglers.
 
The Gulf is peppered with artificial reefs, some located just a mile from shore. You’ll be able to reef hop for Grouper and Snapper, Kingfish, Cobia, Amberjack, and Barracuda. Departing from an area located near the continental shelf, such as the Florida Panhandle? You can hit the reefs on a half day trip. A full day trip is necessary when fishing from locations that are further away.
 
Finally, there’s the Gulf’s deep sea fishing action. As well as the reefs that lie hundreds of miles from shore, these waters are also dotted with oil rigs and underwater canyons. And what lurks there? Feisty big game fish! Head out on a full day trip and you’ll encounter Mahi Mahi, Marlin varieties, Wahoo, Sailfish, and Tuna species. 
 
You’ll find charters located all along the Gulf’s coastline, no matter which state you’re in. Some of the most popular locations include Destin, FL, Orange Beach, AL, Biloxi, MS, Venice, LA, and Galveston, TX. 
 

Rules & Regulations

Casting a line from a Gulf of Mexico fishing charter means that your license will usually be covered for you, except in Texas, where you’ll need to purchase one yourself. Size and bag limits for specific species differ from state to state, and your captain can fill you in on this.

Gulf of Mexico Fishing Seasons

January

It may be the dead of winter, but the inshore waters of the Gulf are looking lively! You can enjoy some of the best Speckled Trout and Sheepshead fishing of the year in Texas and Alabama.

February

Fishing inshore in any Gulf-side state for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead and other species will keep you busy until the weather is fair enough to head offshore!

March

Cobia are beginning to appear off the coast of Florida, which means one thing: sight fishing! The season for Grouper and Triggerfish is now open in federal waters.

April

More anglers are heading offshore as large predatory fish start showing up. Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna are already at their peak in some areas, and you have a good chance of catching Mahi and Sailfish.

May

Deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico is at its height in May. You could catch anything from Yellowfin Tuna or Mahi Mahi to monster Sharks while casting lines offshore.

June

Come June, many anglers are heading to nearshore and offshore reefs to make the most of Red Snapper season while it’s open. A day inshore will have you hooking into Flounder, Speckled Trout, and more.

July

July is tournament fishing month here in the Gulf! Take your pick of the Port Aransas Deep Sea Roundup, Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo, or the Deep Sea Fishing Rodeos in Mississippi and Alabama.

August

All fish are typically open to harvest in federal waters this month, and most of them are at their peak! Try bottom fishing for Amberjack, Snapper, and Grouper, or troll for Marlin, Tuna, and much more.

September

Deep sea fishing continues offshore, and you can still enjoy good Tarpon fishing in some coastal waters. The Redfish bite is heating up as autumn gets underway. 

October

In Destin, Florida anglers are partaking in the Destin Fishing Rodeo, a month-long fishing tournament dating back to 1948. This annual tradition keeps visitors coming even after tourist season is over! 

November

Most big game fish have disappeared by now, but there’s plenty of action on the reefs to keep you busy! Inshore, winter favorites like Flounder and Speckled Trout are at their peak.

December

Winter fishing on the Gulf is all about reaping the rewards that swim close to home! Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, and Sheepshead will get your blood pumping on a cold winter day!
