The speckled trout are moving out of the creeks and rivers flowing into the bay and
feeding on shimp and baitfish. Redfish are still being caught in the bays and
channels and around bridges. Sheepshead fishing is great around any heavy cover
in the river mouths and bay.

waters of the Gulf by two barrier Islands - Petit Bon and Horn Islands. There is salt
water between the coastline and the islands and brackish water near the mouth of
the Pascagoula River. The climate in this area is mild so you can fish year round.

Fishing Report Archives:
01/23/19 Morning temperaturess are cool, mostly in the mid 40’s, but it warms to
the mid 60’s during the day. Redfish and Sheepshead are still active, and you
can still catch some Black Drum and Speckled Trout, but they may be in deeper
water. The Speckled Trout are hanging around the mouth of the river and
Sheepshead are found around the jetties
. Winter fronts can cause some windy
days, but you can always go up the Pascagoula River to escape the wind.
