Monday is Memorial Day, and if you’re off work, you might want to think about casting a line into the Mississippi Sound.

According to a new study from FishingBooker, Biloxi is one of the top places in the Gulf of Mexico to fish for red snapper. Red snapper season begins on Friday, May 24, in Mississippi.

“Known for its beaches, casinos, and seafood, Biloxi blends city life with a healthy dose of coastal charm. But among its many attractions, this part of Mississippi’s ‘Secret Coast’ really shines when it comes to angling,” FishingBooker’s Marko Lukic wrote. “The fish bite both inshore and offshore, making it a great destination to satisfy any kind of saltwater angler.”

America’s largest platform for scheduled fishing trips went on to note that Biloxi’s best red snapper fishing can be found about 25 miles offshore.

“In summer, the red snapper fishing in Biloxi is just as amazing as elsewhere along the Gulf Coast. Typically, you’ll run about 25 miles offshore to get to the sunken wrecks that house these fish,” the report added. “Along with tasty red snapper, you’ll get to fish for king mackerel, cobia, sharks, and more around the same spots.”

With charter captains available all over Biloxi, there are plenty of ways to get out in the open sea in one of the Gulf of Mexico’s premiere fishing destinations.
