Light tackle Fishing, Reds, Sheepshead, Black drum, ETC…
That darn o’l WHIPASNAPA CHARTER BOAT has taken a large variety of guest (friends) on some
great light tackle trips last few days. Guest have come from, Illinois, Ohio, S. Carolina, Louisiana,
and others. Have consisted of doctors, lawyers, pilots, chemist, computer techs, engineers and
many others. And we have caught just about everything that swims, mostly black drum, strong
sheepshead bite also, trout and ground mullet, reds just to name a few. Three very good trips!!
As everyone knows it takes good karma and a few other things to make a trip a lil more
memorable. And on these 3 everything just seem to click.. We were fishing just fresh dead
(SHRIMP) and a few on live shrimp and minnows (peter mullet and small croaker), slow dragging
across the bottom in numerous spots along the Back Bay of Biloxi! Lots of hard fighting drag
ripping make ya slap your grand maw runs, lead to some great excitement.
Mostly catch and release, but the avg. were 6‐12 sheepshead 3‐6lb, 15‐25 black drum 4‐8lb,
couple flounder, reds, specks, (white trout and ground mullet) were thick but we were looking
for lil more fight.
