With the end of the snapper season coming a close for Biloxi, MS based Whipasnapa Charters, it has been a up an slow month catching Red Snappers. The rains kept us fishing around the Barrier Islands and the Biloxi Back Bay area, but the bites were on at both locations in the Gulf of Mexico. And then you have the shark bite….. lol.
When we did our charter boat clients to the offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, we hit them hard and ended up with some great fishing, vermilion, grouper, and of coarse the red snapper. We also caught king mackerel, jack crevalle and then more of them dang sharks.
We had a winner in our Whipasnapa SOW Master tournament!!! Mr Randy Ingram!! He landed 22lbs of Red Snapper, way to go man!! They come from Wisconsin every year to charter fish on the WhipaSnapa. Last year the weather washed them out and we never even stepped a foot on the ole whipasnapa. Glad ya came this year Randy! See ya next year to do it again! Thanks to everybody that participated in our Snapper tournament!
Can’t forget the tons of drums, reds and the many fish caught by families that came aboard to learn a few things about the South and the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. And lets not forget all the good times catching fish too!!!
Back to school is fast approaching so lets get the last min vacation started call for a great trip you will remember for a lifetime. Whipasnapa Charters always open and ready give us a call today 228-229-6978
Well that Biloxi, Ms based charter the Whipasnapa was out of commission for a couple of days after the fourth of July. Yea after 30 years a shark got me!! I’m not going to gross ya out with pictures (but they are on facebook lol) but lets just say ouch!
But, hard to keep the captain of the Whipasnapa down!! Been doing pretty good this week foot and fish wise. Snapper been on point and drum oh man!!! In one of my clients own words —
“ Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! 1/2 day trip with excellent guide
Thanks Mr. Tony its was great fishing with ya”ll!!
The next crew they wanted to catch a shark!! Oh well guess its time to get it over with lol. But, they were gone, one bite of the captain and they high tailed it out of
there bahhh! No but seriously we caught some good eating fish but no sharks for that day.
Had a great day fishing for snapper on the whipasnapa with a bunch of crazy guys from north ms minus one that could not make it. Had a lot of laughs and caught a lot of snapper, vermilion and mangroves. So all in all a great day.
Wanted to thank everyone that has called, texted, and facebooked to check on me, I am doing really good a lil ole shark not going to keep the Whipasnapa Charters down long!! Only few more days
in July open so get on down here and have some fun in the sun and pet a shark! 😉
Inshore fishing is a great past time for first timers with little experience or if you just want a leisurely boat ride to get some of the Back Bays finest and a great pictures of sunrises, I never get use to this, breath taking.
In this ole capt’n opinion the Red and Black drum cook up just as well as the Snapper everybody needs to try it. And the shark meat oh yeah!!!! If you haven’t tried it you must come on down and catch you some.
We had some really great folks on the Whipasnapa Charter Boat this week. Glad to see everybody getting out on the water and taking a kid fishing. Good to see the next generation enjoying this as much as I do. Nothing like feeling that pull of the rod and landing something like this…. So much fun to catch even better eating!!!
To round out the weekend we went offshore to catch some snapper and boy did we hit the mark on this! Even reeled in a pompano what a beauty. All in all we were able to miss the rain and had a great haul!! Thanks everybody that came out to have a great time!!!!! God Bless and have a safe 4th of July
Deep Sea Fishing is a popular pastime of millions of people while on vacation, with a work group, or alone with the right captain. Though many people love fishing, this pastime is quite tricky and requires a subtle knowledge and level of experience that comes only with time and practice. Knowing yourself, choosing the right equipment, and picking the right charter boat service for a trip into the Gulf of Mexico are three important steps to improve your chances of success.
Fishing in the Gulf Of Mexico – Knowing Yourself
To improve your chances of catching Red Snapper you need patience, persistence, and the right charter boat company in Mississippi. Once you have these in place, you will enjoy exciting times sitting on the deck of the Whipasnapa with a rod in your hands landing the big fish. With expert instruction from Captain Earl, soon you will be casting like a professional and not a soul will know that you are on your first offshore fishing trip.
Onshore and offshore fishing techniques are numerous and each has its peculiarities and equipment. Mastering all techniques for salt water fishing is virtually impossible unless you have decades of diligent practice. Even experienced freshwater anglers face difficulties when it comes to shifting to a different technique like Gulf of Mexico fishing. Usually, the techniques and equipment you choose depend on the type of fish you want catching along with knowing your fishing conditions.
Captain Earl McDaniel – Choose the right equipment
Fishing the Gulf of Mexico waters can be hit or miss depending on a number of factors. One huge factor is the Captain of the boat your charter. Captain Earl has been fishing the Gulf of Mexico waters his whole life and know where all the good spots are and how to get you there quickly. This year during the Red Snapper season you can be sure that he know exactly where to find the large schools of Red Snapper so you can get to your limit and have the best charter fishing experience possible.
Many beginning anglers think you have to have professional equipment to go on a Charter fishing boat in Biloxi, that is just not true with the Whipasnapa. Onboard this charter boat you will have all of your necessities taken care of right off the bat. And while having professional equipment is important, the right fishing conditions also play a role in catching your limit of Red Snappers in the Gulf of Mexico.
In addition to first class fishing tackle to gather in those Snappers, you need just the right bait. The Whipasnapa and Captain Earl have you covered there too. Many of the folks who fish these waters know that certain fish require certain bait types and Red Snapper are no exception. With decades of experience, you are certain to have the best possible luck with Captain Earl.
Whipasnapa Charters – Picking the Right Charter Boat Service
Knowing where to fish is not blind trial and error. Having scouted, read reports, gone out and tested the waters with catch and release, Captain Earl knows what many other local charter boats do not, what is working currently and where to find the big schools of Snappers. Spring has come and gone, summer is here and that means Red Snappers are ready to be caught in the short season available. In order to get to them you are going out into the deep, blue waters offshore from Mississippi into the Gulf of Mexico. That means having the best quality navigation equipment, all the approved Coast Guard safety equipment on board, a solid vessel, and a veteran Captain at the helm. The Whipasnapa boat and Charter Service are all you need to start landing the big Snappers quickly. With so many choices of Biloxi Charter Boats available you need to have the best and with a long history of success, your choice is clear…the Whipasnapa and Captain Earl at the wheel.
Fishing in the Gulf of Mexico takes an experienced captain, great weather, the right equipment, and being able to get on top of the fish. If you are looking to catch some Red Snapper during the current season should give us a call at 228-229-6978
Just look at what this Whipasnapa Charters has done now!!!! Day 2 of snapper season was even better then the first.

Had the best time in Biloxi, Ms they said and they would def be back on board the Whipasnapa Charter!! Thanks guys had a blast!

Well looks like the Biloxi, Ms fishing charter Whipasnapa Charters has done it again! First day of the red snapper season started a lil rough in the Gulf of Mexico but we rode it out and got some great red snappers for our troubles.
Looks like going to be a great season for snapper, grouper, vermillion and many more. Come get in our snapper pot see who going to win this!!! you never know it could be you on the front page. come on down to Biloxi, Ms get on the boat see what you can do!!!
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!!!!!!:) 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!
Getcha self on down here, load up on the ol’ WhipaSnapa an let’s get it on!!!
Many thanks to all and God Bless!!!! Capt Robert “Earl” McDaniel
Take a look at what all you could be fishing for. From near the coast line of Biloxi,Ms. out to the offshore Islands catching black drum, sheepshead, flounder, red fish, Snapper, sharks, amberjacks, cobia, beautiful sun rises and sets you can catch them and much much more.
That Biloxi, Ms. Charter Boat WhipaSnapa continues catching a large variety of fishy’s! Weather inshore or offshore the tight lines attached to them big ol smiles have really been flowing on a regular bases around here. We Thank You Lord…..
The group of Davis and Fry started the WhipaSnapa adventures off this week with a light tackle and Island combo.(catch and release trip), well they did keep a lil variety (of Fish) to take to one of the local restaurants (C.J.’s right here by the house a new restaurant) cooked up the couples flounder, shark, trout, mullet and drum. The couples gave it a gold star!! Really good action on the day with this group of Snapa Friends….
Mr. Carl Jones’s friends and family had the WhipaSnapa for couple days of the good stuff. They come in for that treatment only the WhipaSnapa can provide. Ya’ll know Fish, Eat, Drink And Rest!! And Fish Eat, Drink and Rest again. Man the team really does it right, an had a couple of great days! Mr. Butler Dexter an Carl been enjoying their trips
aboard the WhipaSnapa for 7yrs now. The Team all ways likes the 2 day, Inshore one day, Offshore one day package. And OMG the crew had a great time. The times in the boat flowed right on to land and back. Not sure on tally’s, believe it or not, but the team left with close to 130lbs of cleaned meat(if not more). I really do like them 2 day trips, gives us a lil better odds to get a good day offshore. Cause we all know when going for the rig trip the better the seas the mo fun it is!!
Snapper dates getting limited but a few still available for July. Also have a couple trips needing a extra person to help fill the boat so if interested in going on a Big Water Adventure an it’s just 1 ,2 or 3 of you. Might want to give us a holla. A big Thanks to all of you, for selecting WhipaSnapa for your boating excursions.
