A group of intrepid anglers embarked on an exhilarating fishing trip in Biloxi Back Bay, guided by Captain Marcus of Saltwater Therapy Custom Charters. Despite facing challenging weather conditions, the group was determined to catch a variety of fish, such as speckled trout, triple tail, and redfish, but remained open to reeling in anything that was attracted to their bait.

Launching from Ocean Springs Harbor, the anglers initially aimed to catch tripletail. However, the rough offshore conditions led them to change tactics and cast live shrimp near the grass lines instead. Their efforts were rewarded with a small redfish, but the excitement truly began when they relocated and caught several flounder at their new spot.

The group faced a few setbacks throughout the day, including missed fish and equipment issues. Nevertheless, the anglers maintained their high spirits and even found humor in their misadventures. Eventually, they opted to switch things up once more and attempted to catch black drum near a bridge.

Obtaining live crabs from a fellow fisherman on a nearby boat, the group cast their lines and quickly found success. They reeled in a stunning black drum featuring a striking blue tail, weighing approximately 12 pounds. The anglers commemorated the catch with photos before releasing it back into the water. Not long after, they also caught a ground mullet and had a thrilling encounter with a massive redfish that, regrettably, managed to escape.

As the day drew to a close, the group returned to the harbor, content with their experience on the water and eagerly anticipating future fishing excursions, such as a potential flounder gigging trip. The camaraderie and excitement of the day solidified this Biloxi Back Bay adventure as an unforgettable experience, demonstrating that even when faced with less-than-ideal conditions, a day of fishing can still be a resounding success.
