Fishing

From freshwater fishing in 119 public lakes to saltwater fishing off the Gulf Coast, Mississippi offers endless excitement for the avid angler. Mississippi is well known for its incredible crappie fishing. The World’s Largest Crappie Fest is held annually at Enid Reservoir in Water Valley. The reigning world record white crappie was caught here, weighing in at 5lb. 3oz. In addition to the scale-tipping catches, our mild climate keeps the state ripe for fishing excursions year-round. For a truly memorable fishing adventure, look no further than the salt waters of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Hire a licensed charter guide who knows the locations of local reefs and wrecks, where the fish are and what they’re biting. Your guide is your gateway to a sea of amberjack, cobia, red snapper and more. If inshore is more to your liking, fishing trips along the coastal areas and marshes typically mean hefty catches of speckled trout, redfish and flounder.
