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 had 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 blow 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, salinity, just right temps, an wind has 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!!!!

Bio: Capt. Robert “Earl” McDaniel was born and raised on the beautiful Back Bay Biloxi shores, and has been a licensed fishing charter boat Captain since 2001. “I have enjoyed fishing as well as boating these beautiful Mississippi waters all my life, and I enjoy it as much today as ever. What a great place to be at the ‘crack of dawn’ or anytime for that matter, its just a great place to be, so I like to spend as much time possible even when not fishing, out running crab pots or catching bait. I keep a large variety of bait fish (croaker, pin fish, menhaden etc) on hand for each trip so we always have what the big fish want (specks, cobia, reds, snapper). I have always enjoyed tournament fishing, and have won several snapper, cobia, and king mackerel tournaments. I try to stay prepared for all situations on the water.” The "WhipaSnapa" is a 2009, 29 foot c/c open fishermen “SOW MASTER” with twin 2009 250 Yamaha 4 strokes "SWEET". The boat has all modern conveniences including: private restroom, top notch GPS / fish finder, hard-top/enclosures to get out of the elements, plus the finest fishing tackle and weapons, “rods” on board at all times.. We carry all U.S.C.G. required safety equipment on board for the safest, most enjoyable trip. The WhipaSnapa, being just the right size, allows us to go into shallow back bay waters fairly easily to get to the specks, reds, and flounders, or out to the beautiful Barrier Islands for excellent fishing, camping, photography or just relaxing. Or we can get offshore some 100 miles to chase the big boys like "sow" red snapper, cobia, king mackerel, grouper, tuna, and sharks. One thing I have always enjoyed about a day on the wonderful Gulf of Mexico - you just never know. So come join us for a day on the WhipaSnapa and see for yourself how wonderful it can be!
