We would like to take the time to thank everybody for a very productive (loads of fish and friends)..and safe 2018. (Except for the captains shark bite….) And we would like to wish everyone a Happy and safe New Year! Hope you had a joyful Christmas…Ours was GREAT spent time with family and friends.
The Biloxi Mississippi charter boat “WhipaSnapa”, finally had decent enough weather to jump off the 2019 fishing season…As predicted the fishing was little slow….as we have had an enormous amount of rain the last couple of weeks…Even the bait shops are hurting they did not have any live shrimp, but we always keep a large supply of fresh dead!!
On this day we started out couple miles west of the I-110 bridge and fished a few consistent spots..action was slow but we were able to get few nice reds in the 14 to 17 inch range in maybe an 1 1/2 hours!!
Then ran down east of the I-110 bridge where the fishing picked up quite a bit but still the smaller Reds..won’t mention the nice flounder that flopped out trying to get it in the boat.
So to make a long story short….once we found the trick and the sweet spot we boated a large number of really nice black drum and red fish. Fishing on the front side of the highway 90 bridge with a 3/8 oz lead head along with a dead shrimp drifting with the tide on bottom…good stuff
Anchored in front of the large columns with a rising tide, letting the bait fall dead in the middle of the bridge, about 10 feet under the front side would get a strike most every time! Felt really good to see the smiles and the rods bent with the drags ripping…
So load up and come on down and knock the rust off with me
LET’S GO FISHING
