Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Mississippi

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

The average price for a private 4 hour Mississippi fishing trip is $553, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $996 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Blackdot Charters, Dailey Charters, and Biloxi Sport Fishing all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips 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. Inshore fishing, reef fishing, and nearshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

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.

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. ?

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.

My fiancé and I enjoyed four hours in multiple fishing spots off the Biloxi coast with captains Paul and Robert. They helped us bait and cast lined and bring in the bounty! We caught speckled trout, black drum, and Spanish mackerel. They cleaned, skinned and filleted the fish for us before we left. Definitely would recommend for a care free fishing adventure.

We had the best time as a group of 4! Captain Ben and Chief Mate Ryan made sure we had a good experience. From catching our own live bait to moving to different locations to attempt to catch what we wanted, it was fantastic! They even cut and bagged our catch and gave advice for the best way to cook them. Definitely recommend! We will be back!

Great time out on the water. Fish weren’t running strong but Captain Ryan kept us entertained with stories and great conversation while moving all over the water to find spots to catch. We caught some Sharpnose Sharks and then at the end found a Triple Tail hanging out by a crab pot. Captain Ryan filleted it for us and gave us pointers on how to beat season and grill it. We both enjoyed it very much.

We did an 8hr trip and it was amazing. We were able to catch so many fish and had such a great time with this crew. Our boys are 8 and 6 and we’re welcomed and treated so well. We will for sure be making this our yearly family trip with this crew. I can’t say enough great things about them but I do highly recommend booking your trip with Skipper Charters. You won’t regret it.

Captain Matt asked us several questions up front to make sure he knew exactly what we were looking for with our trip. He was fantastic with the kids. Each child caught the biggest fish they have ever caught. We fished several different spots and if the fish weren’t biting we moved. One of the best trips we have been on. So good in fact that we booked another trip for later this week.
