Why Fish Mississippi?
Anglers will be quick to tell you the fishing in Mississippi is half the reason to visit. Speckled trout are waiting for you in the Mississippi sound in summer months,where the state turned the wreckage of Hurricane Katrina into a haven for these fish that are biting almost every time you drop a line in June. Tripletail are swimming alongside them, and this delicious little black fish will put up a fight when you get one on the line. Of course, the Mississippi River also has catfish aplenty, and you’re sure to find bass in the lakes all year long.
You must have a valid fishing license to drop a line in, but once you’re legal—there are 4,000 miles of streams and 282,000 acres of lakes and reservoirs that await.
