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 !!!

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!
