Mississippi Inshore Fishing Getting Hot!

Capt. Robert L. Brodie
March 17, 2008
Biloxi Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

Yeaterday was a great afternoon to be on the water. Heavy winds, yes, but fish were located and caught never the less. Getting on the oyster reef around 2 o'clock, a bite of sand sea trout a.k.a "white trout" and southern kingfisn a.k.a. ground mullet turned on for some light tackle fun.

The beauty of this catch was the fish were in extremely close for March, and plenty of stingrays and hardhead catfish were other signs that waters were warming rapidly.

Here on the inside reef in Biloxi Bay, a fast bite led to 44 big fat ground mullet, a few of those were white trout, a legal flounder, 1 speckled trout, and a huge sheepshead. By the way, the surface water temp was 66.2 degrees, and baitfish like silversides were observed too, all good signs of things to come.

Last Wednesday my two clients boxed 90 of those tasty ground mullet, but that was 10-miles to the east in the open waters of the Mississippi. Our bottom rigs were composed of 25-pound-test Seaguar fluorocarbon leader material, 1/0 Gamakatsu Octopus hooks, 1-ounce disk sinkers, and bait was fresh dead shrimp and squid.

Shrimp works great, but slivers of squid are much more durable, holds up better against bait stealers like pinfish, grunts, and croakers, and allows an angler to catch mutiple fish off the same piece of bait. Bottom line, fishing in south Mississippi is heating up so come join us for some awesome fish catching fun!
