Mississippi Sound - Saltwater Fishing Report
What can I say, for about the last 10 days in a row it has been fishing at its best aboard TEAM BRODIE CHARTERS, and the beauty of it all is that it's just going to get better.
You name it: redfish, sheepshead, black drum, flounders, southern kingfish aka "ground mullet, sand sea trout aka "white trout", and gulf kingfish aka "whiting" have been delivering top-notch light tackle fishing, and just think...it's only March!
Needless to say the sheepshead bite has been good for the last two months, early on in the bay, and since they have moved out to the barrier islands catching the big 5 to 10-pound fish has been simply a blast on light spinning tackle.
Also, at the barrier islands the white trout and ground mullet have been delivering a good bite, and these tasty fish are some of the finest frying fish on the planet.
Been pulling in a few flounders too, and a tasty flatfish is always a much welcomed species to add to the mix.
Redfish have been showing up in the bay too, and they are still running the barrier island's surf in good numbers, but you have to be a good caster.
Black drum numbers are starting to get larger too, and in the bay plenty of "puppy" drum are suddenly showing up, and the big giant drum will be in soon too.
Yes, the fishing has been magnificent, and the new TEAM BRODIE CHARTERS has been working out just fine.
In case you havent heard I now fish a 224 BlackJack bay boat with all of the bells and whistles.
This is a gorgeous fishing machine and its amenities include: A Yamaha SHO 250 hp 4-stroke, Garmin 720S GPS/Sonar, Clarion AM/FM Sirius Satellite XM Radio with the premium channel package, power pole, 36-volt Great White trolling motor, duel lighted recirculating live wells, VHF Marine Radio, T-top with electronic box, compass, 27 rod holders (can handle 4 9-foot fly rods), hydraulic jack plate, 3 powerful white LED lights on T-top, remote controlled multicolored LED lighting under side panels and on T-top that can change the boat to 17 different colors and combinations (great for night fishing), green LED underwater lights mounted aft (more night fishing tools), plenty of dry storage, built in fish cooler on front step up, plenty of casting room on fore and aft deck, 70 quart Yeti ice chest for food and drinks, tilt stirring wheel, with radar on the way and more. As you might suspect this is my dream fishing machine, and already she is a proven fish catcher.
So what are you waiting for the bite is on, and it's time to get blood on the deck. Good fishing to all!
