Gigging for Flounder is a popular Mississippi tradition that is a must-try for those seeking a unique experience. Charters are available for half-day or full-day trips, allowing anglers to experience as much inshore action as they desire.

For those looking to venture further offshore, Gulfport's nearshore reefs are teeming with Cobia, Red Snapper, and various Grouper species. A full day on the water is recommended to get the most out of this experience. For those seeking a challenge, longer trips of 12+ hours offer the opportunity to battle world-famous big game species such as Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Billfish.

With the bonus of being delicious, these three fish are definitely worth a trip!

Further out, Gulfport has access to an abundance of local reefs that are teeming with fish. This area is known for incredible red snapper trips where anglers often catch their limit.

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.

    The boat was nice. The captain was excellent. She was hard working and friendly. The only complaint I would have is the spot lock trolling motor did not work due to battery issues. As a result we spent a lot of time to set anchor every time we moved and she couldn’t get us to some spots like she wanted. I hope the boat owner will address this issue.
