Coastal Mississippi

A sign reading "Mississippi Gulf Coast"

Mississippi doesn’t have the longest coastline in the Gulf, but we like to think of it as a case of “quality over quantity.” The Mississippi Coast manages to pack in white sandy beaches, winding bayous, remote islands, and bustling cities, all within reach in a single day. It may be known as the “Secret Coast,” but there sure is a lot to discover.

Spring is the perfect time to target the Gulf’s inshore superstars like Speckled Trout and Redfish, which leave the back bays and head out toward the barrier islands this time of year. The fishing is just as strong out at the reefs, with Kingfish, Cobia, and even Amberjack found around deeper spots. Troll, fly fish, or just cast a line from the local piers, either way, you’re in for a treat. 

Coastal Mississippi is a place that takes its downtime seriously. It’s the perfect spot to unplug, lie back, and enjoy the warm spring sunshine. Soak up a tan, splash in the sea, and recharge your batteries after a long winter indoors. After that, you can sample the area’s seafood or even try your luck at the local casinos.
