According to customer reviews, Blackdot Charters, Double Hooker Charters, and Biloxi Sport Fishing are some of the most popular fishing charters in Mississippi. Full list of top fishing charters in Mississippi.

Blackdot Charters, Double Hooker Charters, and Biloxi Sport Fishing all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Mississippi.

The best way to experience fishing in Mississippi is to book a private charter with a licensed fishing guide. See the full list of charters available for online booking here: List of fishing charters in Mississippi.

The most popular fish species you can target are Redfish, Jack Crevalle, and Cobia. Top fishing techniques include light tackle, bottom fishing, and trolling. Reef fishing, inshore fishing, and nearshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

The Amberjack season typically opens in the beginning of May. If you’re in the area, we definitely suggest you find a boat and get to work! Check availability for local fishing charters in Mississippi.

With the great Mississippi River flowing along the entire western border, as well as outstanding saltwater fishing, Mississippi fishing charters offer all sorts of adventures. Whether you’re a freshwater angler looking to wrestle a river beast or an offshore trophy hunter, you’ll feel right at home in the Magnolia State.

The Great River is known for monster Catfish that hide in it. However, there’s more to freshwater angling in Mississippi than that. Lakes such as Grenada, Sardis, and Ross Barnett feature some of the finest Crappie fishing in the world. With species such as Bass, Sunfish, and Bream also in the mix, there’s almost no end to what you can reel in.

If you travel south to the coast, you’ll find a vibrant inshore fishery. With species such as Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder biting year-round, you’ll always have something to catch. There are also plenty of local reefs nearby for those of you interested in Shark fishing.

Further offshore, you’ll find oil rigs teeming with Red Snapper and other food fish. And if you decide to ride 20 or more miles out, you’ll have the chance to hook into Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and Billfish.

Most Mississippi charter captains are located in Biloxi, Gulfport, and Pass Christian. If you’re looking for a freshwater adventure, Tunica is a good place to start. Half day trips are a great option for families and will let you get a taste of inshore fishing. Deep sea trips require at least 8 hours as you’ll need time to reach the offshore fishing grounds.

Rules & Regulations

If you’re fishing aboard a charter, you won’t need to worry about getting a Mississippi fishing license. However, solo anglers aged 16 or older will need a permit whether they’re fishing freshwater or saltwater.

January

The start of the year is always a great time to head into the marshes and flats. The water is clear and perfect for sight casting to your heart’s content.

February

The shallow water fishing bonanza blazes on in February as well. If you’re looking for something a bit different, check out the Sheepshead bite further out.

March

March can be a bit of a toss up depending on the year. If the weather gets too rough, you’ll have to stick with the reefs. Otherwise, Kingfishing will be on fire!

April

Those wanting a challenge can look forward to world-class Cobia fishing this time of year. Inshore anglers will have fun with Seatrout and Tripletail.

May

The Amberjack season typically opens in the beginning of May. If you’re in the area, we definitely suggest you find a boat and get to work!

June

The Elvis Festival in Tupelo draws in fans from all over the country. When it comes to fishing, Billfish are all the rage when summer hits.

July

Are you a competitive spirit? Then be sure to check out the famous Mississippi Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo. Fun fishing and generous prizes, what more do you need?

August

August here can be quite hot and humid, especially when you’re on the water. Those looking for a break from it all can go Flounder gigging in the evening.

September

You can afford to be flexible in September. The Sheepshead bite is starting up again and, if you go far enough, you’ll be rewarded with some great Tuna.

October

With the heat finally out of the way, it’s time to dig in and get some anging done. From Speckled Trout and Redfish to Amberjack – it’s a buyer’s market.

November

If you play your cards right and find a good spot, you can easily hit your limit for Redfish and Speckled Trout in just a few hours’ time!

December

Sheepshead and Black Drum are heading back to the bays, but that shouldn’t discourage you from going offshore. There’s nothing like a big Yellowfin to brighten up your day.

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.

We were fishing just to catch fish. We caught a lot of catfish, a few croaker and one nice redfish. Our fishing experience was excellent! Next time we’ll fish for gamefish only. ?

Great area to fish for a wide variety of fish in shore or off shore. Check what fish are in season when you plan on visiting then pick your charter based on that.

Offshore in a boat this small is not for a newbie. We had two newbie friends with us and they are proud of the bragging rights they earned. Definitely a trip for fishermen who will brave rough conditions to get the best memories and fish. If ins one. You will have many tales to tell. PS- one of our newbies caught the biggest Red Snapper

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.

Don't come into the experience with a lot of preconceived ideas about what species to target or where to fish. Let the captain decide and trust they are trying their best to put you on some nice fish.

Awesome trip. Captain Brandon is extremely knowledgeable and does his best to put you on the fish. The Shearwater being a 37' ship really helped when the weather turned a bit choppy. No complaints. 6 hours goes by quick when you are having fun. Fully recommend Captain Brandon and Shearwater Charters.

We just finished a great half day trip with Capt. Ben and his Mate, Ross. I highly recommend this charter company. It was far from ideal fishing conditions and they still managed to put us on the bite. They were fun to fish with, extremely knowledgeable and went out of their way to make sure we had a good time. There are a lot of options but if you want a bigger boat with nice amenities (AC, good shade, lots of seating) and great deck space, these guys can’t be beat.

Andrew is a servant. He gains joy in life by making other people have joy. We started off slow, but Andi (you’re welcome) kept running around to make sure that we were baited up with lines in the water. He spent an hour after the trip cleaning ALL THE FISH we caught for FREE! The man is a servant and will work his butt off to make sure your party is happy and hitting those fish. Thanks for a great time.

Had originally scheduled a full day, however due to weather (high wind), rescheduled for half day (we were out well past clock time doing what we could to find more). All 4 of us caught fish. Andrew worked trying for larger and better fish. Fishing conditions were not very good but we still caught enough for a good and tasty meal. I would highly recommend Andrew and Black Dot Charter. Thanks for wonderful time Captain Andrew.
