Biloxi Fishing Charters

The warm Gulf of Mexico waters off the coast of Biloxi offers just about everything you could ask for. Surrounded by bays, marshes, and islands, Biloxi has everything from inshore trips to nearshore and deep-sea action. The options are endless and there is a trip for everyone just a short boat ride away.

Biloxi Inshore Fishing

In Biloxi, you can hit the inshore grand slam: redfish, speckled trout, and flounder. Light tackle anglers will have plenty of fun hanging in Mullet lake or Biloxi Bay, or even heading to some of the barrier islands a little ways from shore. Redfish and speckled trout can be found in so many of the different environments Biloxi has to offer and will often produce giants.

Biloxi Nearshore Fishing

With so much easily accessible nearshore water, Biloxi has amazing nearshore fishing for cobia, kingfish, and amberjack. Trolling the nearshore waters around Biloxi is exciting with an explosive bite possible at any moment. The cobia bite is on in the spring and fall during their migration, with kingfish and amberjack are at their peak in the summer. With the bonus of being delicious, these three fish are definitely worth a trip!

Biloxi Red Snapper Trips

Head out a little further and Biloxi is full of local reefs that draw in fish. The area is known for its red snapper trips, and you'll want to take a full-day trip to catch your limit. Make sure you head out during red snapper season which usually occurs in the summer so you can take home one of these delicious fish. Biloxi is one of the best locations in the state to catch red snapper and is guaranteed to make for an exciting trip.

Biloxi Offshore Fishing

With such fertile offshore waters in almost every direction from Biloxi, it’s no wonder the deep sea fishing is great here. In the spring, shallow water grouper heat up with wahoo showing up just after, while the summer months bring the snapper and grouper seasons. The biggest prize of deep sea fishing out of Biloxi is the tuna fishing around the offshore oil rigs.

Biloxi Tuna Trips

Heading offshore, you'll want to head out to some of the many oil rigs that dot this part of the gulf. Any rig is a haven for fish of all kinds, but the further out you head the better your odds of catching a monster. Make it out to the "floaters" (oil rigs that are attached to the bottom, but float since it is so deep) and you'll have an awesome shot at some quality yellowfin tuna.

Added bonus: the Chandeleur Islands

Biloxi is also your best jumping off point to get to the incredible Chandeleur Islands, where you can expect world-class redfish and seatrout fishing. These islands are about 35 miles off the coast of Mississippi and are part of the Breton Wildlife Refuge. The unique environment created by these islands is the perfect habitat for small fish and crabs which makes it one of the best places in the world to catch redfish and seatrout.
