  • The Best Biloxi, Mississippi Charter fishing boat Whipasnapa lands another banner fishing year!!!! We started business in 2002 so getting about 13 good charter years under our belt.. Thought I was a pretty good fishermen some 15 yrs ago but it amazes me the things I’ve learned the last 12 years..& still learning.. It’s always a very uplifting rewarding challenge to take people who only have dreams & very limited fishing experience of catching BIG fish & actually taking them out & consistently put quality fishing trips together on a daily bases.. But we really fish here…We’re not “trolling” your actually fishing… Really have to cast, put bait on, set the hook, tighten the drags, pull up reel down.. All that stuff, feel what you fishing with.. Good ol actual fishing..The smiles and high fives and thank you’s make it the best….I still get excited the night before when out rigging weapons and baiting up for the following mornings fishing adventure.
    The fishing in the Gulf of Mexico is second to none as far as I know!!;) When you combine a great fisheries such as the Gulf of Mexico & Mississippi sound w/ a fish magnet like Whipasnapa & a born & raised ole back bay captain the fish box has a tendency to runneth over, a lot!!!
    Ok all bs aside!!’:) Don’t guess I’ve reported since at least the beginning of the 2015 red snapper season..Just been way too busy.. We had some really great catches of red snapper w/a limit of nice red snapper each trip. Most averaging 12-15 lb the biggest around 25, several in the 19-20 lb range! The vermilion snapper & mangrove snapper also added to the fun & meat box totals.. The red snapper were caught using usually a 4/0 or 6/0 reel,spooled w/some 60-80 lb mono backing w/ the top 200 ft or so spooled w/ 250 lb power pro … A HUGE chunk of fresh dead Bonita, jack, hard tail & or the poggie of course is generally best bait.. Terminal Tackle being usually a 12/0 or so circle hook & bout 8 oz sinker either Carolina rigged w/ about a 3 ft. leader of 150 lb mono or drop shoted w/ sinker on bottomnice sow red snapper hook a couple ft. above.. Dropped usually all the way to bottom. The vermilion and mangrove were usually in the top 50 ft of the water column and run a bit smaller, then the red snapper… They were brought topside w/a small spin cast backed w/ 16 lb mono and 30 lb braid rigged w/ small no.1 hook & couple oz sinker, a small piece of squid or cut bait.. Then bammm pulll cause they still know how to find a rig leg just like the ol wise red snapper!! A few kings, cobia, groupers were escorted mainland by ol Whipasnapa too.. . ‘A few real nice Warsaw groupers, one weighing 66 lb… Added to the KIMG0394excitement!!! A fine red snapper season for sure!! Just my opinion I wish they would separate the red snapper season into 2 seasons one in May-June another in September-October and this would help the charter industry tremendously @ least the ones that do red snapper & let us know the seasons regardless of when @ least the beginning of the year & not wait till May to let us know!!’
    Since the middle of July the 6 hr. combo trip has been in VERY high demand & hot hot hot… Really a good lil trip 2 hrs or so inshore then venture off out around the island for some shrimp boat running or wreck fishing & chumming for the sharks,cobia,bull reds etc.. The drags & friends get a pretty good work out on this trip especially messing with them BIG sharks! They are fun to catch & pretty good off the grill as well.. But they don’t give up easily, that’s for sure!! The 4 hr. Inshore is just action packed w/ hardly any riding time & about a fish a min. The forearms & wrist get sore pulling in all the Reds,trout and black drum etc!!
    Just don’t forget that some of the best fishing has yet to come.. So call your favorite captain & get on a boat!’ The cobia return migration is fixing to get hot through November.. The amberjack offshore trips get very good as well & w/ all the mangrove,white,vermilion snappers and groupers etc… you can really fill the freezer w/ some mighty fine eating! Have a lot of fun in the process!! So get you a party together. If having trouble getting a crew together call us we always have a few local guys or gals chomping @ the bit to pitch in and get out there! Anyway folks thank ya’ll so much for all the continued support.
    Who dat & God bless

    Spring has finally arrived, let's go fishing!!! 3-16-2014

    The Biloxi,Mississippi fishing charter boat Whipasnapa, is finally back in the captain's seat!!! Oh! how good it feels too... What a winter, huh??? Not many people had boating on their mind the last few months, that's for sure!! But with that being said I think it's over. The 1st day of spring is this week, spring breakers are amongst us. It's hammer time!!! Usually, by now we are in full swing, but just now getting warmed up this year!! Time to get back to waylaying'm, stanking the grease!!!
    Been pretty busy last few weeks getting the arsenal all cleaned up, greased and ready to go. Starting to pick up few trips as some spurts of sunshine an warm weather has teased us a lil lately. For the most part, the fishing has been pretty good. We did get a big flush of fresh water the last part of February that made a few trips a lil slow!! Just seems slow in winter any ways cause you don't have all the bait fish and stuff constantly biting on your bait. When you feel something chomping this time of year it's generally something worth a good hook set. Croakers, pinfish and hardheads just not around till the water temps gets back up close to 70 degrees!! Kinda of limited sometimes what you can do when the winds are blowing a Gail and the bay has been flushed out!!! Had 4 off shores on the books and have yet to get out there!! I know, I know we usually have one those biggens in by now!!! (But ol Mother Nature rules in this sport)!! I can assure you I'm chomping @ the bit to go do lil BIG water fishing myself 4sur!!!
    The last couple weeks have straightened out for the most part!! Although numbers have been still down a lil (for whipasnapa standards). Sheepshead just have not turned on reel good this year!! Not sure the reason other than colder than normal temperatures.. I think a lot of it has been the fluctuation of the temp!! Up and down up and down and winds steadily changing directions ( bout like a woman) o yeah guess we are talking bout (Mother nature here) all the fresh water flowing down the rivers also!! Most trips in past years would average some 30 sheepshead with several reds & black drum a few specks an flounder mixed in!! This year tho it's been more like 8 to 12 sheepshead an the black drum an reds have been lil more consistent!!!
    Bait shops have constantly held a nice supply of live shrimp which helps for sure.. Caught the first hard heads this weekend. Which means..... cobia will be here just any day now!! Lord knows I love hunting them cobia!! When you start seeing the butterflies, the turtles out on the prowl and the pecan trees start budding. Its time to load up some Fiesty hardheads and go. (chum the bar) If you ever get out on a reely good cobia hunt you will understand!!! I like to call it cobia hunting! You go out off one the barrier islands, I prefer horn or chandelier island. Get on a good stand, I prefer edges of bars preferably chumming over some grass beds or cuts in the islands where bait fish would be holding up. Put out lil stinks (chum), do lil cobia calling put you out few weapons with good lively baits (cats, croakers or eels). When 2 or 3 show up swimming around the boat and you can see'm everybody goes to scram-a-ling, cause you have to be quick to get a bait in front of them before they become what we call a drive by. When one or two or 3 takes the flipped baits and you can get multiples hooked up it's very heart pounding!!! Bout the only fish that reely gets the ol ticker ticking like a big ol buck!! To feed a bait to a 60, 70, or 80lb fish is just heart attack material!!! Chumming for them is very patient testing but if you can handle the waiting game it can be very rewarding!!! Chumming as most know is one of my favorite types of fishing!!! Putting out ol tournament slick an a dozen or so weapons with the hairy triggers set is a very productive, exciting way to catch cobia, shark, bull reds, jacks, tarpon and many other species!! When you have the weapons loaded (baited) with ol hardheads and the clicker goes to easing off, and you start about a 6 Mississippi count to give the potential St. Record fish time to swallow the bait!! The anticipation of setting the hook is like none other!! Then once you set the hook an it starts the rise to the top and you get that big brown color as she comes up doing that ol head shaking tale walk it can be very well (orgasmic)!!!!
    Any way folks thanks so much for a very successful 2013 and a very anticipated 2014 is under way. I was kinda injured fighting a very disturbing foot injury all winter so didn't reely get to hunt, like I like too. I had a severe case of plantar fasciitis !! Very painful!! But it's almost healed now and been couped up with it all this winter.... bout ready to,well ain't no bout ready too it!! I'm very ready to bust this 2014 boating season wide@ open!!! So y'all come on down jump aboard and let's get it on!!! Red Snapper season right now is 6-1-2014 through 7-11-2014 and cobia season is right around the corner (April may). The kids love the fast paced trout and ground mullet which is any day now!!! The camping season out to the barrier islands is right now and still plenty reds and stuff now too! So moan down South Mississippi load up on ol Whipasnapa 228-229-6978 will get you hooked up!!!

    Many thanks to all and God Bless!!!!

    Fishing Red Snapper in October!!!! 08-11-13

    That's right! The Whipasnapa Charter boat is awaiting another round of the elusive Gulf of Mexico Red Snapper!!!! An boy that October fishing gets right you know!!!
    As the cobia migrate back through on their return trip home, the October water temps cool down and that brutal summer sun is gone. Really seems to turn on a good feed for all the fish. Grouper, snapper, amberjack, kings offshore with reds, blacks, sheep's an trout really turning on inshore. Some of my most memorable meat in the box adventures have been in October. From my experience if we can get ole mother nature to do her part we gone way lay'm!!!! That's right be like the old days putting 4 to 500 lbs of fish in the Box!!!(of course offshore) especially if they leave the aj season open!!! I know a short time ago when the snapper season run through Oct. several times I remember catching 200lb of Red Snapper 200lb of cobia an 200lb of Mangrove Snapper (IN THE BOX)!!! didn't fish much for amberjack back then but now add 200lb of amberjack to that, plus a few of the other snapper an some kings plus some grouper (o'lawd) we might need a bigger boat!! YEAH!!! That BEAUTIFULY SWEET CEO of the whipasnapa franchise has been hinting a lil that its getting about that time!!!!:)
    We been mostly inshore fishing 6 hour an 4hr lately..for some pretty good flounder, trout and drum action. The puppy drum and reds have really been hot through July, August. Dropping them nice fresh dead shrimp to the bottom has done most of the damage.., Its some what of an art, to it to be able to flitch the shrimp up an inch or 2 an anticipate that big red are black drum to smoke it as it falls back to the bottom..Hey drag ripping! It is a pain at times dealing with all the croakers an catfish but they do pull pretty good an if patient and learn the technique of pulling the big shrimp away from the pesky nibble nibble stuff an anticipate the bigger thump of the red or black an hit him quickly with a blunt hook set can be tons a of fun.
    Nuthing like hearing them lil drags on that light tackle sing, YEAH!!! White trout and ground mullett have been strong and steady with a pretty good avg. size usually a Hr. are so producing a strong 40 are more!!!!
    The Jacks, bonito, sharks, bull reds and few cobia have been kicking it up at the barrier island and behind the shrimp boats. The reels are a lil bigger drags a lil tighter as the fish are a little bit meaner. The angler gets pulled around a lil as well. :) Which adds to the excitement. Chunking a nice size white trout or croaker out behind a shrimp boat and watching as the feeding frenzy of sharks, jacks or bonito's engulf just about anything that hits the water.. Get 4 or 5 hooked up at once an anglers go to flying around all over the place trying to FOLLOW their fish gets Very entertaining!!! But to watch the fear faces turn into happy faces just makes me :) Moan Y'all lets go rip some stanking lips!!!

    Many thanks to all and God Bless!!!!

    Cobia Bar Fishing, May's Good!!!! 05-21-2013

    The Biloxi, Ms. based charter boat Whipasnapa, has been chumming them bars for sure!!! As most know we like chumming. Especially for the brown fish, aka ling, cobia, and lemon fish.
    Since the second week of May each trip has been fortunate enough to boat a nice cobia some up to five. Most 2 or 3 with the biggest being a 57lber. Hard to mention everyone's name and where they were from but a big THANK YOU, to all who helped this years bar season to be one of the very best!!! It really does take a large amount of hard work, patience and team work to boat these fish chumming on the bar. With 10 to 12 poles out and couple chum chompers (that have to be stroked consistently) outboard motors and anchors that have to be maneuvered around, once a BIG fish has been Hooked, things can get hairy for sho!!! :)
    We were very successful thou of all the fish we hooked we boated everyone of them!!! That in itself is pretty dang good. Way 2 Go Team!! Appx. 30 for 30!!!! Most were caught by sight as they came up to the boat following the impressive chum slick we were putting out. A live ell, croaker, catfish, spot or jig was presented an engulfed by the curious hard fighting great tasting Cobia.They really do check out when hooked, some do a lil tail walk slinging their head around trying to throw the hook, some hit the sinker lines an man when that clicker goes off the anticipation an anxiety of not knowing what your fixing to set the hook on is second to none..If it leaves screaming its probably a shark. Its the nice slow ease off when Cobia is anticipated.Then everyone is waiting to see the infamous rise to the top that the cobia's always do. Regardless of how it happens rest assured the high fives an smiles on the face of the angler and spectators after that cobia is boated is priceless.
    I'm figuring the bar fishing is very close to wrapping up. :( We might squeeze out 1 or 2 more. Time to start picking them up out at the rigs and the shrimp boats farther out in the Gulf, as the shrimp season and snapper season are fast approaching. For you curious fishermen, they have set the Snapper Season for June 1 to June 28th. I have about 3 or 4 days still open so hurry and fill them up!!!
    Inshore the white trout, ground mullet, have been pretty strong with several gaff tops, a few flounders and reds pulling the strings.
    Anyway if your still reading this crap thank you, and moan down get on the Whipasnapa Let's go get'm Bo an Boets!!! :)
    Pictures will be freshene-d up weekly but the reports prob will cease for the month of June. Cause I think you all know why they really call us WHIP- A- SNAPA!!! Hopefully Mother Nature An God willing some very nice limits of Red Snapper w/ some's Mangroves, Cobia, Kings an all that other stuff out there that dares get in the cross hairs of ole WhipaSnapa will most certainly get the complimentary ride aboard the WhipaSnapa too the cleaning table>>>>>>O yeah we set the St. Record for the Atlantic Sharp nose this past weekend W/a 15 and 1/2 lber, 1/2lb shy of the world record!!! Congratulations Steve!!!

    God Bless all affected as lives have been changed forever as mother nature seems to be so violent these days!! As hurricane season fast approaches, we will be keeping our fingers (and everything else) crossed and praying as well.

    Let's Go Fishing!!!!

    Many thanks to all and God Bless!!!!

    From inshore to offshore Fishing is getting right!!!!!!!! 04-02-2013

    The Biloxi, Ms Charter boat Whipasnapa, has really enjoyed some fine south Mississippi weather along with some great friends and fishing action this week. WOOOOOHOOOO!!!!!
    Got in another rig trip Sat. with calm seas great companionship and absolutely beautiful weather and crystal blue water. As we shut ol Whipasnapa down some 50 miles out there the 1st words out of every bodies mouth was the water is mighty blue captain. After two quick stops to gather up some live hard tails and big blue fish for bait we headed over to 265 area where the action was tremendous. With a 6 man crew of Bud light stock holders that didn't have a bet on the biggest or the most fish caught, but on who could consume the most bud light!!! Not sure who won cause as they left that evening it was down to 2 guys an they were still going strong!!! (sure nuff professionals). Anyway, good time was had as we kept 2 guys on the drop shot rigs hitting the lil wench men, white snapper, an several lesser Ajs!! Two on some amberjack action and couple kept usentertained on some large king mackerel and sharks. As ya'll know 1 or 2 Amberjacks back to back will surely make you need a beer break. But, so will a couple of big kings an sharks. Of course dropping down an reeling anything in down 270 ft well most diffidently make you need a (BEER BREAK). Seemed to be the most common phrase of the day fir sur (BEER BREAK)!!!! Just about as quick as you could get a bait down or in the water period something was going to eat it, and as you were reeling that something in most of the time it was going to get eaten by something even bigger!!! OH SHITTT!! :) (BEER BREAK) Lots of heavy action for sure!! Bout worked me lil fingers off!!!!
    The lil snappers were hitting squid on the drop shot rigs. The lesser amberjack where hitting a lil sparkle beetle jig, kings and amberjack were hitting live hard tails and blues, the sharks, barracuda's an kings were hitting anything we had hooked an were trying to get in the boat. Probably only got half the fish we hooked in whole, the rest were bitten in half or engulfed an ripped off the hook!!! Or took fish hook, line, n sinker!!! (BEER BREAK)
    On the way back towards Biloxi, we stopped on couple ol snapper spots and let the guys fight a few beautiful red snapper!! Most were low 20s high teens. But they were diffidently there an just a tad hungry!! Should not be a problem keepin our limiting out streak alive come snapper season!!!
    Inshore is really coming around also. The ol white trout, ground mullet are starting to show up on the reefs and still hitting a few reds, specks, flounder here and there. Hit and miss on live bait but definitely do lil better when they have the live shrimp!!
    Still able to catch the reds, black drum, and of course the ground mullet and white trout with the fresh dead. Winds are laying, water temps are hitting the mid 60's and high expectations are definitely setting in!!! Cobia's surely within 1 to 2 weeks away for sure. SHOOO I NEED A BEER BREAK!!!!!

    So come on jump aboard and lets go hook'm up!!!

    Let's Go Fishing!!!!

    Many thanks to all and God Bless!!!!

    Biloxi Bay Fishing heats up!!! 2-5-2012

    The Biloxi, Ms. Whipasnapa Charter fishing season is getting well under way, an heating up nicely. Saturday a lovely couple from Chicago blessed the Whipasnapa with some great company, as we enjoyed a few hrs. on the Back Bay, they seemed to enjoy our mild weather as it was 9 degree back home in Chicago. We managed a pretty good day, kinda slow for the most part. They kept dropping and fishing hard an were rewarded. Several nice battles with some scrappy red fish, couple specks and sheepshead. The couple had flown in, so catch an release was the Game!! Well except for the couple flounder that hit the deck of ol' Whipasnapa an had the honor to get whooped up an bless the table of the Captain!! :)
    We were dropping over some the old bridge structure by the new Biloxi Ocean Springs bridge with live shrimp. Just holding the boat over the structure with the motors running, so we could drop straight down. A sinker tied to the bottom an the hook about a foot above it, so as to not hang up, allows the sinker to barely lay on the bottom, that allows the live shrimp to flick around about a ft. above an WALLEYE botalabing!!! Make sure not to drag it or you will surely hang up on this structure.!
    Mr. Baker, ol' dirt {peanut} farmer from Georgia, (an a marvelous guy to spend the day with) got it put on him pretty good. I wore him out. I love when he comes cause I can simply out fish him every time :) Naw, actually I told him to keep it a secret but he put it on me!!!! Mr. Baker likes keeping a lil heated competition going. We were tossing live shrimp with a very light split shot over some structure close to the power lines, by Imperial Palace. Couple of nice specks, black drum, and small reds pulled his string. And of course pulled out that smack talk he likes to dish out! But most seemed to miss my line. O well out of 15 trips guess he was do :) Thanks Mr. Baker always a pleasure.
    The Whipasnapa was also blessed to have aboard a couple more return friends. Early Feb., the Pawelski family from Minnesota, fished good an hard as they enjoyed some good family time an fought a good variety of nice Back Bay winter species. Started off with the beginner getting all the luck at first, as Mrs. P. hooked up on couple very scrappy Sheepshead (9 to 10lb range) that tested the equipment, (smoked the drags), an got the ticker pumped up as well. The rest of the gang were hooking up on some bay specks most in the 12 to 14 in. range. After bout a hr. or so we ventured on to our next spot. Yet again the beginner, which by now is looking more like the guide, as she pulled out couple nice flat fish (flounder), an small reds. At the 3rd spot the rest of the gang heated up as several brute size reds pulled out the smiles, except one (the beginner) who seemed to have got stuck on the wrong side the boat. Around lunch time the group decided to fish for another couple hrs. so I had to run grab a few more live shrimp before Ms. Crabby closed. (Mondays are their half day off). We went on up the bay to the Ocean Springs bridge looking for some more of them drag ripping sheep's. There Mrs. Connie started heating up an kept the rod bent doubled on several nice sheepshead.. The crew kept a fish or 2 of each species,black drum, sheep head, flounder,specks an reds.. The smiling hungry gang took their variety catch over to the well known McElroy's family restrurant, to let them put their magic touch on it.. 'Best FISH AND TRIP ever Capt.' was the report I got back from the crew. So thinking it was a hit, thanks yall!!!!
    January is always a lil slow, probably the slowest for charter fishing.Then February it starts to rock n roll!!!! Alot of the greatNortherners (SNOWBIRDS) decide that Feb. is the time to head South. An I can't say that I blame them. Reds, specks, flounder, sheeps heads and black drum are the steady fish, this time of the year. The weather has been very nice actually, the big rains a couple weeks ago, kinda messed up the water for a lil while but its getting back pretty good shape now. The live bait shops were missing on the shrimp during the flush but they back on them as well..So hey; fishing is a lil slower in the winter time but patience an determination will pay off for sure..On some the calmer days with some good sunshine we can run out to the surfs of Ship Island an get on some sight casting for the huge black an red drum that lurk out in the shallows.Talk about a Hooot!!!!! Every fish in the winter time is for the most part a good keeper fish. As the ol pesky croaker, pinfish an catfish are none existing this time of yr.! Anyway enough BS getya butt on the boat an lets keep the Rods bent an grease stanking!!

    Let's Go Fishing!!!!

    Many thanks to all and God Bless!!!!

    Let's Make 2013 the Fishiest Ever!!!!!! 1-07-2013

    Happy New Year's fellow WhipaSnapa'ers, I hope everyone is getting their New Year off to a great start. The Biloxi Ms. Charter boat WhipaSnapa would like to thank everyone for all the great support in 2012. And would like to ask for your support to spread the word so 2013 will be even fishier!!!
    We ran 4 or 5 trips around Christmas time that produced some great light tackle action. Most of the guest were in town just visiting or passing through, and not keeping their fish, so catch and release. Team Missouri had a few hours of rock steady action Thursday. Just about as quick as a bait could get in the strike zone it was engulfed! An a brisk but strong game of tug o war pursued!~!! With angler winning most. Them fish did put up a pretty good match tho!!! Good strong hook set keep good bend in rod and PULL UP REEL DOWN!!!
    Friday's was also strong, with sheepshead, flounder, reds, couple of specks and puppy drum all participating in the great action. Then on Saturday, man the wind blowed in and it was COLD!! we just got whupped!! Fish just would not bite. At least not where we were. We tried to make them bite in some of the out of the wind spots, and even roughed it out in the brutal wind, but with very lil success! :(
    Monday's couple from Georgia fished hard and still for the most part a lil slow but did manage a pretty good variety of nice fish. Actually, the last hour of the 3 hour excursion was action packed with several nice reds and specks being brought boat side.
    The bait shops have been able to hold a steady supply of live shrimp that has produced most of the action. A few hit fresh dead but the frisky live did most of the damage. Beautiful clear water, just right temps, an wind have been very manageable for the most part!!! As always we keep a pretty steady bite on Flounder, Specks, Reds, Sheepshead an puppy drum throughout the winter..
    But anyway getting your string pulled hard and often is always good. Especially along the shores of South Mississippi in the beautiful Biloxi's Back Bay with the Whipasnapa (of course). So tell your friends to tell their friends and ya'll load up, come on down and lets keep the hooks in the water!!!

    Let's Go Fishing!!!!

    Many thanks to all and God Bless!!!!

    Nov. and Dec. is still very fishy!! 11-18-2012

    Well as the 2012 boating season draws to an end, and we get time to reflect a lil. What a great year we've all enjoyed aboard the Biloxi, Ms. fishing charter boat 'WhipaSnapa'. Thanks to a number of old friends and many new one's that boarded the WhipaSnapa for a great day afloat!! Thank You! Thank You!! Thank You!!! : )
    November we pretty much have wrapped up the ever so exciting, big water adventures. Man what some great times out there this year!!! A many of those dream catches for sho!! Looking back on some of the pictures you wonder if any fishes are left, but I assure you we left plenty!! Even the Nov., Dec. and Jan. months are very fishy to say the least. If you can get one them blue bird days in between cold fronts. Mangrove, kings, cobia, grouper, amberjacks, Tuna, Wahoo and the snapper are very Catchable these months. They would love a trip back to the Biloxi shores aboard the WhipaSnapa for sho!!!
    The last few trips, in late Oct., just ran in close some 15 to 20 miles beyond the Islands where several large kings and some great cobia action took place. Some sharks, bonnita and jacks ripped the drag an brought them (O SHITS) out as we drifted an CHUMMED behind the shrimp boats for sho!!!!.
    The last couple combo trips (inshore-offshore), produced several big sharks, bull reds and a few cobia. Sharks, cobia an few Jacks were enjoyed while chumming on the ol Isle Capri bar. A few reely nice kings were in close for some great string stretching reel burning action too. Kings an cobia were on the Channel marker bouys. All brought out the (O Shits) an lots of : )'s for sho!!
    The action packed inshore trips will be the main attraction for the next few months tho. The Fiesty delicious red and black drum, flounder, sheepsheads and trouts are all hungry. On light tackle will sure peel'm out an heat'm up for sho!!!. So let's keep the pressure on the lil fishes and of course keep stanking up that grease!!!
    Anyway guys and gals, hard to believe that the 2012 boating season is just about over. But it tis, and has certainly been a joy to be your Captain and spend some time aboard that Fish Destroyer (WhipaSnapa). Many thanks to all who believed in us to spend a day are 2 or 3 an some cases 4 or 5 with us on the water. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Remember If you start getting them winter blues, the urge to play a lil tug of war, rip some lips, or STANK DA GREASE well you know what too do (Holla) anytime, an we will get'r DID !

    Have a Safe an Joyous Holiday Season, Keep ya line tight an if could please practice that pull up reel down!!! May God Bless!!!!

    And don't forget you can get your WhipaSnapa Chicken and Seafood Gumbo or some great Creole for your Holiday's. Either at the Grocery Basket (Grenada, Ms) or give us a shout!!

    what you waiting for here is your invitation:

    Getcha self on down here, load up on the dang ol' WhipaSnapa an let's get it on!!!

    Many thanks to all and God Bless!!!!

    Red Hot Red Snapper action comes to a close!!!!!! 7-23-2012
    What a Great 2012 Red Snapper season it has been aboard that darn ol WhipaSnapa charter boat out of Biloxi Ms.. No sure nuff monsters but alot of nice 20's an hardly anything under 10. Most all trips had a fine limit except 1 or 2 that the weather didn't allow us to go very far. A couple of the last trips we were invaded by the o so lovely SHARKS!!! OMG when them s.o.b's school up on a rig or in a particular area, an you make your drop to the bottom, it just might costya a hook, swivel, sinker an all. If you don't lose it all, an are fortunate enough to hook one. Especially on bottom, generally they will tangle up with everyone else on the boat !! O what a mess!!!!!!!! But anyway, let's move on!! But not South this time, before we had been, just going further south, but the further we went the thicker they got. Lets try about 15 miles to the west this time, that did the trick. NO SHARKS HOLLALOUYA!!! I know some of you like'm an all, an they do eat pretty good, an they do fight pretty good, but they have a tendency to make me pull my freakin hair out. Especially when I'm snapper fishing. Sometimes certain bodies of water will just be infested. Just something you have to deal with. Sometimes you can catch one are two snapper before they move in. Then you mightiest well move on..Especially if its those that are big enough to eat your Snapper. We had some 20lb snapper bit off right behind the head. The Barracuda can play havoc as well on a nice catch.. If there is a shortage of the ol Red Snapper its not in our neck of the woods. I don't see as many of the sure nuff sows like did some 8 to 10 yrs ago. Some due to the fact that I am fishing with a bunch of dang rookies, that just can't turn the beast.:) Naw (I love my rookies) I think that is were some of the shortage is, the big mature sow snapper. Which from what I'm told are some 30 to 40 yrs old. I remember back just before I started chartering that a limit of over 20lb sows was very common an you could keep 4 per person. Snapper season was also from April to October. The ol Gus area we called sow country which has very few rigs anymore (2 to be exact). Would produce a limit of sows just about every time.!!! O what some battles we had, trying to turn a 25lb+ Snapper took a lot of Heart!!!!
    Had a great group of guys in from up Wisconsin way this past week. They booked ol snapa for a whole week of fun. Two offshore's an two inshore's an what a blast we had.. I think the group caught about every type of fish in the Gulf of Mexico an the Mississippi sound. Great group of men an some super strong fish bites made for some exciting days on the water for sure. Our first trip out after snapper season started o-ut a lil stormy. Man it is nice havin that XM weather on board to keep an eye on the sky an one on the radar to tell which way to go.. really does help to tell which way the storms are moving an where exactly they are an just how bad they are as well. Some times you just have to take what Mother Nature gives you. Actually all the time cause she is the BOSS!! She will make you change plans sometimes an you just try make do with whatya got. The guys were wanting to fight some reef donkeys (amberjack) even tho they were going to have to return the donkey (opens Aug 1). I did know of a few good Mangrove holes out that way. That would put some meat in the box. A pretty impressive Thunder Boomer had that trail blocked off so a lil detour was in order (plan B). Which landed the 5 man team right up on a few nice Cobia, LIL tunny, King Mackeral, Vermillon Snapper, Lane Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Scamp Grouper, Dolphin, Black fish, Jacks, an I'm not sure what all. The guys kept their rods bent an their face lit up with them big ol :)s all day long.. An at the end of the day the fish that got the complimentary ride to the Biloxi Shores aboard that darn WhipaSnapa, was pretty impressive indeed!!! So ifya smell what I'm steppin in,'There is a lot more fish in these waters besides a Red Snapper'... So even tho its closed that Ol Gulf Of Mexico is VERY VERY Fisheee!!!So Lets Go Get'm!!!!
    Inshore the islands have been producing a great deal of excitement as well. A few cobia some reel nice Kings an Sharks have made those drags sing which produces a :) an just a lil anxiety for what reason IDK but when the clicker goes screaming an the reel is locked an the drag goes screaming most just can't stay calm. PANICMOANIA sets in an they go reeling as fast as they can. Even when their line is going the opposite direction. A steady turn on the handle is NOT necessary (but it happens anyway). Everyone else goes to screaming an running around like a bunch of chickens with their heads cut off. Everyone wants to see what's on the other end as quickly as humanly possible.. (enjoy the fight people) once the hook is set an the rod stays bent he not going anywhere!!!!! (most of the time). PUll UP REEL DOWN!!!!!:)
    The Bay has really had some very nice trout action 2 @ a time. Still a few nice reds an black drum, big Gafftops, spanish, an lady fish, ground mullet and many more. Fishing is HOT!! Red Hot so moan in here lets venture out on the ol Fishing magician (WhipaSnapa) an let's stick some meat on a hook an see what try's to take the meat an run!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    what you waiting for here is your invitation:

    Getcha self on down here, load up on the dang ol' WhipaSnapa an let's get it on!!!

    Many thanks to all and God Bless!!!!

    A Red Hot start to the Gulf of Mexico Red Snapper Season!! 6-11-2012

    The Biloxi, Ms. Charter boat Whipasnapa, has really started out the 2012 Snapper season with some red hot Snapper action for sure.. A really nice limit of Red Snapper each trip. Don't take long either!! With the smallest fish about 12 to 14lb an the biggest in the lower 20s..22lb biggest so far. Man those 20s can scrap with the best of'em. When you 1st bow'em up an they make that drag ripping run to the bottom or rig leg you best be pumping an reeling. If fishing around any structure, any drag is not in your favor. They do know how to get around the structure to freedom. First 3 to 5 pull ups an reel down (PURD) are o so crucial. Don't take long to know you got 1 either, ol sow will get some the ol drag every time. Luckily starting to find a few lumps an humps without any structure. Which gives the angler a slight advantage..
    Been warming everyone up a bit (so to speak) by stopping an hitting the shrimp boats on the way out. As the shrimpers generally shrimp at night then early morning as they anchor (to sleep), first they must cull through their catch.. That's when they throw plenty of that good ol fresh chum out.. (o this Capt. likes fresh chum). Makes for a perfect lil warm up!!! Amazing action on the med. an even the light tackle. Hook you a Bonito or a Mackeral on some light tackle an she fixin 2 sing>>>:) Jacks, shark an Cobia even on the med. wt. has some very intense moments as well, as some of the young anglers are dragged around the boat by their beast, you see fear in their eyes, they have never hooked much that tried to pull'em in!!! Let along try to eat them once in the boat!!! Mix in some absolutely gorgeous weather and wonderful guest getting their :)'s on, of course after their fear face, an just don't get much BETTER!!!!
    But seriously, take some fresh bonito, jack, poggey, croaker, or a hardtail out to the 120-130 depth an putcha on a xxxtra large porkchop an send it to about 80 to 100 ft an you better be holding on 2 your assprin bottem!!!! After about 6 to 8 good battles of Sow versus angler. The angler starts to 2nd guess dropping his bait.. Even had a couple guys praying to the fish lords that when I drop this 1lb fresh cut piece of bait over PLEASE let something small eat it!!! Wow, how blessed we are is what really comes to mind reminiscing about the past 10 days or so on the water. Some Great boating adventures for sure...
    Some great views from Whipasnapa eyes, friendship, breath takin boat rides, an very adjectively deplict battles of tug of wars really makes this Capt. enjoy what he does.. And Old Mr. Austin Fox ,the new Mate, is really proven to be a great lil diamond in the rough??? Helpin me keep 6 or so great guess with tremendous action on their rod for the day, is not easy. When you enjoy it like we do it is absolutely the greatest thou. An I think he loves it!!!
    Anyway all the Snapper trips have come home with some reeellly great catches of Red Snapper, few Mangroves, still not hitting them reel good but a few surenuff pigs have been tamed.. A King or 2, several Spanish, a cobia or 2 a few nice lane snapper, trigger etc. Some huge sharks has whooped every angler in the boat as well.. Run into some bluewater the last few trips an scooped a few dolphin, lesser amberjacks, seen some spectacularly HUGE Mantas out gliding an jumping completely out the water. With all kinda fish swimming with it.. a sight to see for sure...Just never know what you might see or get hooked on the other end of the string when you let it down to the deeps..Especially aboard the Whipasnapa cause we aint scared to hook just about anything on your hook probably something pretty Dang Big an let you drop it down an set back an :)
    Mother Nature has kinda sat us at home the past couple days:( bout the only reason decided it to do another report that an everybody buggin me, I didn know their was that many of ya reading this mess)))
    Inshore 1 or 2 trips scooped several nice trout, few groundmullet couple drum an out at the islands actually hooked up on a few cobias, out lingering around. Still missing the big red drum. Few good shark battles an the spanish.

    THE WEATHERS BREAKING, GET THE GREASE HOT, WE GONE FISHING!!!! Seee ya in a couple weeks we dont capture all the amazing photos on the trips, but feel free to check'em all out on our gallery are on our facebook page.. but being on the boat gives you the best view.. peace an hair grease!!!

    what you waiting for here is your invitation:

    Getcha self on down here, load up on the dang ol' WhipaSnapa an let's get it on!!!

    Finally a cobia makes its way to my belly! 4-15-2012

    Some more beautiful weather along the South Mississippi shores has finally produced a nice keeper cobia for the Biloxi Ms. charter boat Whipasnapa. Big reds, sharks, jacks an piles of spanish and King mackeral, entertained as we anticipated the next cobia to come up the chum slick, or for the screams of the reels to get everyone's ol ticker ticking at a very dramatic tick.
    Only one problem, 2 of the cobia, happened to show an hit at the same time!That didn't work out so good. One eluded our attempt to capture the beast. But luckily (I suppose) it was the smaller of the two. Sure felt good to give out a round of ol high fives thou. Just breaking the ice was a great feeling. Especially since it seems I was getting to be one of the last to catch one. Yeah, trust me these fellows round here, they like to rub it in. Especially; when it comes to the cobia. They all ask me 'You get one yet? You caught any cobia?' Well we have caught 4, which 3 were just short of making the 33inch mark. Anyway a nice fat 42 lber(has give us some redemption) an did make for some surenuff :)s. O an some happy belly's 2.
    Another nice 40 come up through the master chum slick about noon. Which the other action was about 7:30, not long after we anchored. So quite some time had passed before the next sighting. Yes, just a sighting, passed just feet from the boat in the slick 4 times. Yet no one could entice this madame to take their offerings.
    The spanish on the lil light tackle spin cast helped pass some time,an were surenuff the :) producers. A bright chartreuse jig bounced around in the chum, produced an exhilarating drag ripping run bout every time. A free lined poggey or croaker drifted back a little further(in the chum slick) would get the ol mighty Kings attention also.
    The winds picked up on the weekend, which kept us inshore for one, an actually grounded us Sunday. The crew sat. did manage a good mess of whitetrout, Sheepshead, blackdrums an ground mullets. They elected to take a variety sampler (of the catch) to one of our favorite lil restaurants and have it cooked up for lunch. They only had 2 thumbs but gave it 4 thumbs up.. Sorry the pictures are down a little someone dropped the camera in the live well!! : (

    It's All about the Reds this week. 4-2-2012
    The Biloxi, Ms. charter boat WhipaSnapa (an it's lovely guest). Seriously been hammering some huge, hard fighting reds. Just beyond the Mississippi Sound. Out at the beautiful,an very fishy, Horn Island.
    You talkin bout a fight, them dang Big ol Bull Reds play one heck of a game of tug of war. PULL UP REEL DOWN!!!!!!:) We've had another large mixture of great folks aboard, Bachelor party's, families, our great Air Force crew, an more. Mostly for the 6 hour combo trips, the past couple weeks. We hit the inshore light tackle stuff for an hour are so catching up 30, 40 nice croaker along with a few drum an white trout. Then make a short very relaxing boat ride, especially aboard the roomy WhipaSnapa!!! (It just rides so sweet)!!:) out to one of the Barrier Islands off the Ms. shores to get our chum on! Which the past couple weeks Ol Horn Island has been the secret spot. And well, some string pulling shonuff(w/a few those very descriptive words) slipping out every now an then!!! Pretty good mixture of sharks-(blacktip, spinners, atlantic sharpnose), king mackeral, jack cravelle, etc.... But its been a very consistent catch of huge smile pulling Reds. An a bunch of em! That had the WhipaSnapa's great guest scrambling to get the reel that was screaming!!! So could be the one to lock an load. They were at times double and tripled up w/ the big ol reds an :)s!
    We were chumming with poggies. Baits were a nice selection of golden croakers that were anchored on bottom w/about a 2oz sinker rigged Carolina style.. Kings, sharks ,an Jacks were mostly on the croaker as well. But freelined on the surface just behind the transom in the amazing chum slick, produced by our master baiter Mr. Austin F. Might have to replace the drags on the sticks after this week. Moan we saved a few for you an your great WhipaSnapa boating adventure !! Thanks ya'll lovin every minute of it...
    So what you waiting for here is your invitation:

    Getcha self on down here, load up on the ol' WhipaSnapa an let's get it on!!!

    A Fishing we have gone!!! 3-19-2012
    Shoo Wee the Biloxi, Ms. charter boat WhipaSnapa has been in high demand. Running all them trips now! From inshore light tackle, inshore/offshore combos to bluewater and sightseeing. That 29ft openfish with restroom an shade, plenty storage an live wells out the ying yang sure makes for a good day on the water..
    People from Minn, NY, GA, WI, CA, and Ms, an so on. Have pulled in a many good fish this week from ground mullet, white trout, flounder and still a few sheeps, blackdrum, sharks, red drum, amberjack, mangrove snapper, grouper, spanish mackerel, blues, an so on..
    Always look forward to spring break an get the younger crews and large variety of great guest aboard that darn WhipaSnapa. For some great water adventures. Some really great fishing this week. Couple of the trips the quantity was down but pulled off quality. And from the smiles I seen this week it was some good times for sure. An prob as much fun for me as anyone.. The bait shops have had a lil trouble getting live shrimp but the poggeys have shown an of course always plenty fresh dead, which once the croaker an hardheads show, live shrimp can be wasted. But the fresh dead will produce good numbers an them live poggeys will get'em for ya.
    The water temp has reached the low 70*'s which starts a lot of transactions and spawning of sorts. Ground mullet and white trout have shown up and a few good specks being caught too. Nice red drum and sharks out by the Islands. But as of this report no cobia : ( But maybe by next report! So stay tuned are better yet:)

    Getcha self on down here, load up on the ol' WhipaSnapa an let's get it on!!!

    Sheepshead and Reds make them drags sing!!! 12-5-2011

    This Biloxi, Ms. Charter Boat Whipasnapa, has delivered a many of good looking smiles lately. Wonderful folks from all around this great USA and abroad, have enjoyed time aboard that Darn ol Whipasnapa this past week or so.
    Ohio, Iowa, Alabama,Texas, Missouri, California, Rhode Island, Ms. & England probably even missed a few. Sure glad to have'em. And according to all the smiles, they were glad to be aboard. With a light tackle spincast in hand something on the other end making those drags sing. We all know what happens, when that happens..:)
    Them dang big ol sheepshead on light tackle is bout as good as it gets. They really put up one heck of a scrap. I have really enjoyed experimenting with them in the kitchen. They eat excellent! Very versatile, grilled, baked, fried, stuffed, pattied, po boyed or potato crusted all have suited the taste buds mighty fine! They have been very reliable as well, averaging 12-20 per trip, only fished 2 to 3 hrs. on most. The Big brute sheepshead have been avg. 4 to 8 lbs with a red are 2 in there to boot. Of course the biggest ones got away just before surrendering to the net. Most trips flew in, so not really keeping a whole lot. Some took a few to the local restaurants to have prepared to their liking. They all had thumbs up on that gig!!
    We still gettin'em'on! So moan down an get'em'on with us. shoot throw some out there for that holiday table spread!!

    Probably the last report for this great 2011 season so...We Wish everyone a VERY Merry Christmas !!!

    P.S. We will be doing a guess the score on the LSU vs Alabama game for $300 Snapa Dollars. Only on our Whipasnapa Charters page on facebook so find us, like us and try for a chance to win!!!

    As temps fall, the fish bite reely just heats up. The WhipaSnapa Charter boat (Biloxi,Ms.) reely is your one stop shop for your boating excursions.
    Mr. David Hewatt,enjoyed the Horn Island camping trip this week, the two day excursion turned out to be some what turbulent for a few hours as a cool front passed through with strong winds, cool air and lighting. Mr. David says he was prepared so it was just part of it. Just made the camping adventure that much more enjoyable and memorable. Mr. David said,'It was a very nice relaxing, beautiful get away.The quiet solo time was much needed.'
    Mr. George and another Mr. David, were our guest (mid week), compliments of the Beau Rivage and Grand Casino of Biloxi, both catch and release trips. Man, the big trout bites continues to be awesome . I mean Whoopum! Catch all ya want! BIG TROUT! I did keep a few to give away (my friends love me). Few Reds, flounders (which were delicious), sheepshead, and black drum also added to the light tackle string pulling excitement.
    The fall run on Cobia looks to be very promising also. As I went out to pickup Mr. Hewatt (camper guy)from Horn Island. I swung by and ran the buoy and scored with a couple nice cobia. Which this time of year gets to be very exciting. Large Ling (cobia) make their return migration back down yonder. It's not uncommon to see some 30 cobia in the pods when they surface chasing a friend who is hooked an being reeled to the surface. That's when cobia madness breaks out! Getcha 4 or 5 hooked up at same time and OMG!!! Don't Forget the Gag Grouper season is now open and several others out there to Yank on ya!!!! Good time to get that freezer stocked up...

    Anyway folks, the ol' 2011 fish season is wrapping up BUT still some great memories to make. So Moan Down here to South Mississippi jump aboard the ol' WhipaSnapa and make yours!!!
    Book your Boating Adventures now!!!

    Many thanks to all and God Bless!!!!

    Camping, Fishing, Fall is Great!!! 9-26-2011
    The WhipaSnapa Charter Boat, down here in Biloxi, Ms., welcomes those great lil signs of fall air.
    Mr. Will Lambert and Co-Workers (friends), boarded the WhipaSnapa for well, just wanting to go on a boat. We all know, that's always a good thing. But they didn't mind if they caught a few fish while out (on a boat). The after lunch trip crew ate a lil, drank a lil and kept there stings tight which lead to some pretty good action on sheepshead, drum (red and back), piles of reds. But most of them were just undersized. Still a hoot to have on the end of the ol light tackle spin cast. Since the trips were catch an release, even better. A couple flounders and some nice trout fell victim to the quite pleasurable crew. For the most part, a few live shrimp, an some fresh dead, were baits of choice laid relaxed on the bottom.
    Gotin 1 those Horn Island camping excursions also, getting that time of year were camping is very nice. And OMG! Horn Island might be one of the greatest places for some that good ol' R&R. Think everyone should try this very tranquil setting at least once. And probably once a month could be very therapeutic. WOW! From sunrise to sunset the beauty in between is just amazing. Just sat an soak it up!! Walk an soak it up, an sit again!! An of course dipping a soft plastic across the many grass beds for some reds an trout, would surely prove exciting as well..
    Mr. David and Lisa from Texas, jumped aboard that WhipaSnapa for lil early morning adventure. As I dropped the anchor 1st we just sat an soaked it all up. I mean I see it daily but sometimes it's still just nice to sit an appreciate the many blessing from Mother Nature we are rewarded with daily.. But we eventually commenced to working on some of those big o'l fall White Trout . Yes! the fall trout generally run a bit bigger than the spring. The feisty lil fighters have been thick and hungry. Pretty much unlimited, just sit and reel'em in till you get all you want. White Trout are quiet the pleasure to reel in and very tasty at the table also.
    Anyway thanks so much everyone for sharing your South Mississippi adventures with us!!! LOVE IT!
    Do have a couple more those offshore adventures that need a person or 2 so holla and get on a boat!!! Starting to get into the off season as well so catch us during the week an we will make the price right.. You wont regret it!!

    Finally our Bluewater is Bluewater! 9-19-2011

    The WhipaSnapa Charter Boat, out of Biloxi, Ms., was accompanied by, Mr. Mickey LeFlore & 3 friends from Grenada, Ms. for a day/night of Bluewater fishing the 15th &16th of Sept.
    As we headed out the winds had the sea's kicked up pretty good. As we were getting a lil spray, an bumping around pretty good, before even making it out past the Barrier Islands. I stopped an debated with the crew on continuing. The young at heart crew decided lets go get'em! So that's just what we did. And for most of the day it seemed to be the right decision. The ride out was with the winds to our back, so was not to bad. An once tied to the rig really wasn't to bad either. Later in the day as we had just made it to the tuna grounds, I noticed a front (on the xm weather) coming at us from the north, could tell the isobars were fairly tight, so we really didn't stay to long. Some 100 miles out is not really the place to be for that. So we made a dash in some 25 miles. Good thing cause the 2' to 3' seas quickly started turning into like 6' to 8's then that's when we decided our decision to 'lets go get'em' may not have been the correct one!
    We hooked up on a rig that I knew had some nice Mangroves (to spend the night, an hopefully let front pass an seas to calm) an Bam Mangrove Madness. If you've never experienced Mangrove madness in pitch black well trust me its the reel deal. On the day the guys hooked and fought and cussed all the Amberjack they cared to do battle with. Some really nice ones at that. All over 40lb except one smaller we decided to keep for the lil better eat. They also hooked, fought and cussed all the beautiful huge red snapper they cared to throw back as well. The team enjoyed boating for take home, on the WhipaSnapa, a limit of Amberjack's, 20sh mangrove snapper, one reel nice grouper (that's legal now), several of the wenchman (white snapper), trigger, an king for a fine mess of great Gulf of Mexico tasty treats. The crew had their strings taught most of the day. Which made for a great day of Bluewater action.
    And Yes! it was actually Bluewater at the Bluewater. Thanks to some much needed east winds brought to us by TS Lee. The currents were nice and relaxed also and Hardtails were easily caught for bait. Dropping to the bottom was no problem either!!!
    Still some great fishing to be had. So Don't just sit around reading about all the great adventures aboard the WhipaSnapa. Come getcha some of the fun!!!!!

    Fishing for Smorgasbord! 9-12-2011
    Well whatcha know, that Biloxi, Ms. Charter Boat, WhipaSnapa! done got on some great light tackle Inshore action this week!!!!
    I Know Right! Been bout 2 weeks since did some rod bending, string stretching, Inshore light tackle Fishing. An tell ya what, really a blessing to spend such lovely mornings on the Bay of Biloxi. I like my times out yonder, the Island chain as well, but the Back Bay, just as good as it gets!! Slam gorgeous weather, companionship, strong fish bite just made for some great times (on a boat) 4sure!!!!
    The Whipasnapa's great company for 2 of the 1/2 days were the Webster's, Mr. Harold and Anna Webster from Jackson,Ms, really a pleasure to spend some time on the water with these fine folks. Thank ya'll so much! A true blessing!!! The couple had a really strong bite actually, we were using some nice lil live shrimp on the sheeps, plus some conchs. Fresh dead was pretty much catching everything else for the morning adventures. With all the fresh water, I was a lil worried, but cooler waters turned on some really nice sheepshead, an the water was really pretty good, considering tides were just right..
    As Mr. Harold and I shared our thoughts of the many ways to prepare this smorgasbord of fine fish, Mrs Anna was hoisting over the side that WhipaSnapa. Mrs. Anna was just saying please just shush!!! an fish. OMG!!! She was flat pullenumn!!!! The team caught reds, blackdrum, sheepshead, trout, croaker, etc..... on the light tackle spin cast rigs. And I'm sure with the smiles I seen, these fish will get enjoyed to the fullest for some time.
    Team Scout from Latimer, Mr. Austin Fox and Gus Lamey, wanted to keep the action going in the Bay of Biloxi, so after I told them of the action an Saturday was here. They decided to sacrifice an go for couple hours. And man they really whoopedum! Reds, sheeps, flounder, specks, white trout, ground mullet, black drum all fell to the duo.

    Thanks for great times on a boat!!

    An as temps start to cool, just remember the fishing is just heating up!! Sep, Oct, and Nov. great months to get out there for some great Inshore Action. And the wide open Gulf of Mexico also awaits!!! Fixin try to get on some tunas as well!!

    God Bless!

    Fish don't bite to good at the house. 9-5-2011
    Man, that WhipaSnapa Charter Boat, out of Biloxi, Ms., bout to go into boating withdrawals!! Them winds been keeping us home for 2 weeks now. Last weekend did get out to the rigs one day out of 3. Sunday Mr. Brad Trussell an crew had a quite breezy start. With north wind to our back it was a decent ride out. And the winds laid just in time for the ride in. We did fairly well on some nice amberjacks, currents finally slacked up. But the water clarity is even worse. I don't know, but we managed a limit on the amberjack. Some real nice white trout, a few other string pullers and a couple huge 200lb bull sharks. WOW!!!
    But ol Tropical Storm Lee has really put a damper on things this week/weekend, what some rain! and howling winds increasing the seas to 15ft or so. That's not good on the pocket book cause just can't seem to stay out them boating supply stores, but when this weather breaks we got some new fishing weapons to try out. :-}
    Don't forget the Grouper Season coming up and the return of the fall Cobia run. Amberjack should stay strong and hopefully the mangrove will come back and play some more. (Not sure what's happened to them)just don't know, not even seeing them, like they just vanished. The reds, sharks, trouts and others should stay strong and actually increase out around the Islands.
    Bay probably going to get flushed out (with the rain) but the outskirts (of the Bays) should be strong on drum, trout and flounder among others.
    So come on down and see what you can catch!! Oh and another thing----

    Doing a $200.00 off trip on our WhipaSnapa Charters facebook page, guess the score for the saints/packers game (this Thursday) correctly an win. Just that easy

    Whatever you care to pursue, Smiles await you aboard the WhipaSnapa Charter Boat!!!

    Good luck and God Bless All!

    Carl Legett Tournament Fishing an more!! 8-8-2011
    The Biloxi, Ms. Charter Boat WhipaSnapa running a lot of great times on a boat. The Hester's did the lil eve sunset cruise. Which was a very nice relaxing an beautiful lil cruise. Really just nice to go take a boat ride sometimes an soak up a great sunset, the shoreline and coastal views along our Biloxi Ms. Shore..
    Mr. Kevin Thompson an Working partners from NW. Louisiana were in Monday for the 6hr. combo shark an light tackle. Boy; steady shark, drum, an trout action for the guys all 6hrs. reely but some fish in the box an released several also... The Viator's did a lil morning light tackle trip that started out a lil slow but finished strong. Talked to my crabber buddy and said all his crabs had died that day in the particular we were fishing. Think that explained the no bites in that area. But we moved up the bay and found some really nice trout that pulled the guys string for some great excitement the last couple hours. They were really catching on an were reeling them in 2 at the time...
    The Carl Legett Tournament which is to me the best tournament we have! I really enjoy this 3 day fishing challenge. Probably one of the 3 slowest days I can remember, well not slow catching just catching the ones to bring home was slow! Them stinking big o'l Red Snapper kept eating everything that hit the water. Made trying to catch anything else a lil challenging. Oh an the currents offshore was ripping, I mean ripping!!, bout 4 mph or so.
    An for the most part, mangroves are a lil more shy when approaching a bait and when the current is ripping the mangroves have to get away from the rig and the Red Snapper wind up with most of baits. O an Speaking of Baits lord help me with the lil fellow that STOLE my 200 croakers an sold them... We did manage a few mangroves and for the most part they were all big nice Mangroves. In all we finished with was a 3rd place Mangrove. Held 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for 2 days on Mangroves till bout hour before scales closed. And held 2nd and 3rd on amberjack But failed to finish with a spot. So a few daily prizes with a 53lb amberjack and a 11lb mangrove being our biggest. We lost several huge amberjack and mangrove to the rigs. But its just amazing how fast them fish can get to that rig for freedom.

    THANKS EVERYONE AN MAY GOD BLESS
    So moan down and try your luck got a spot just for you!!!
