Several charter fishing trips are available from the waterfront in Biloxi.
There is deep sea fishing out in the Gulf, as well as inland fishing, and there are many combinations available. There are group fishing boats as well as private charters that will take you fishing. While most charters even supply all the fishing gear you might need, you may also bring your own.
One popular charter is for families. They will take a family out for a day, either a four, six or eight hour, expedition. The boats are different sizes, so you may also share a charter with another family. These charters also allow you to really fish. You hold your own rod and catch the fish yourself, instead of a crew member reeling it in. The guides have years of experience and they know where the fish are, and how to attract them to the area.
Some trips go several miles out into the Gulf, which is where the big sharks can be caught. Also, in the deep water you may fish for redfish, speckled trout, crevalle jack, and mackerel in addition to sharks. There is also inshore fishing, less than a mile out, where the water is calm and you can fish for trout and kingfish. The offshore fishing includes visiting the sites of shipwrecks or man made reefs, which often attract fish. You may also see dolphin, birds and other wildlife while on the fishing trip.
Most charters also supply food, drinks and shelter from the sun or rainy weather. Charters often also supply the licenses you will need for fishing, however most charters require you to make reservations. There are several in the Biloxi area, so you're sure to find one that suits your style!
