Fishing Report: Last Wednesday was an awesome day on the water for my two clients Matt Zvonkovic and Travia Hartzell, both college students from Houston, TX. On this outing we started out in the Back Bay of Biloxi with 5 nice sheepshead, a black drum, and a freshwater blue catfish.
Once the stiff north winds died down a bit we ran to an oyster reef in the Mississippi Sound where they proceeded to catch 90 beautiful southern kingfish a.k.a. "ground mullet" and a few sand sea trout a.k.a. "white trout". The bite was fast and furious, and the day ended when Matt hooked into and landed a huge 40-inch bull redfish.
Yesterday on a last minute afternoon outing, a fine catch of 44 ground mullet and white trout, a flounder, and a large sheepsheadwere caught off the mouth of the Ocean Springs Small Craft Harbor channel in 6 to 7-feet of water. Here on this live reef, a fast bite of really large ground mullet and white trout were a great sign, especially for these fish showing up so close in this early.
Fresh dead shrimp and squid fished on bottom rigs composed of 25-pound-test Seaguar fluorocarbon leader material, 1/0 Gamakatsu Octopus hooks, and 1-ounce disk sinkers were used to catch the tasty bottom feeders.
Since the rain has let up a bit lately coastal waters are looking much better, and southeasterly winds have been blowing in some saltier water. Bottom line, light tackle inshore fishing is looking really good in south Mississippi, so please come join us for some fish catching fun.
