Popular Fishing Destinations in Mississippi


Mississippi is one of the best places for fresh and saltwater fishing. Mississippi is one of the best freshwater fishing states, and there are plenty of Mississippi Fishing Charters on the lakes, reservoirs and rivers in central and northern Mississippi. Offshore fishing in the Gulf of Mexico is found with Mississippi Fishing Charters in Biloxi, Gulfport and Christian Pass.

In the freshwater lakes and rivers, species like Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bass, Striped bass, Catfish and Crappie are found in abundance, and Lake Grenada is where you can find giant Crappie. When you hire one of the Lake Grenada Fishing Charters, you will be in for a fun-filled day on the lake catching Crappie after Crappie with a few Bass or Catfish mixed in. But there are plenty of other lakes and rivers that also offer excellent fishing for Bass, Catfish, Sunfish and Crappie and hiring a Mississippi fishing charter is your best bet to come home with a cooler full of fish.

For those anglers looking for some bigger fish, Mississippi is located on the Gulf of Mexico and has some of the best fishing in the Gulf. There are plenty of experienced fishing charters for hire in all three of the main cities for days on the water either inshore in the bays and backcountry rivers, nearshore at the barrier islands and reefs, offshore at the oil rigs and in the deepwater 70+ miles offshore. The abundance and variety of fish you can target on your charter cannot be beaten.

Inshore you can match wits with Redfish, Sea Trout and many others. Nearshore on the reefs is the home of many fish. You will find yourself hooking up with Redfish, Flounder, Pompano, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel and Tripletail, a variety of Sharks, Cobia, Tarpon, Jack Crevalle, King Mackerel and Grouper.

Offshore near the closer oil rigs, you can bottom feed for giant grouper and snapper and fish for Mahi Mahi, Tuna, King Mackerel, Amberjack and Cobia. And if you go to the further out oil rigs, you can fish with the monsters. Marlin, Mahi, Sailfish and Tuna are found out here, and when one bites, you are in for the fight of your life.

The Mississippi coast is also one of the best places for Red Snapper. When in season, there are many Mississippi Fishing Charters out of Biloxi, Gulfport, and Port Christian ready to take you out to catch your limit of one of the most desired fish in the Gulf. During these trips, you will also catch plenty of other fish, including different species of snapper.

Offshore and Inshore Mississippi Fishing Charters start at about $500 for half days, $650 for 6 hours and $1000 for full days on the water.
