Chandeleur Islands and Mississippi Barrier Islands Wade Fishing Trips

Experience the ultimate fishing adventure with our Chandeleur Islands and Mississippi Barrier Islands wade fishing trips. These trips offer a unique opportunity to fish in some of the most pristine and productive waters in the Gulf of Mexico.

About the Chandeleur Islands

Located approximately 26 miles off the coast of Mississippi, the Chandeleur Islands are part of the Breton National Wildlife Refuge. This chain of barrier islands provides an ideal habitat for a variety of fish species due to its shallow grass beds, clear waters, and abundant marine life. The islands are renowned for their excellent wade fishing opportunities, particularly for speckled trout and redfish.

About the Mississippi Barrier Islands

The Mississippi Barrier Islands, located off the coast of Mississippi, include popular fishing spots such as Cat Island, Ship Island, and Horn Island. These islands, much like the Chandeleur Islands, offer rich fishing grounds with a variety of species. The Mississippi Barrier Islands provide a unique fishing environment with sandy beaches, shallow flats, and deep channels teeming with fish like redfish, speckled trout, flounder, and black drum. Seasonal visitors may also catch pompano, tarpon, and Spanish mackerel.

What to Expect on Your Trip

Our wade fishing trips begin with a boat ride to the fishing grounds. The journey itself is an adventure, offering breathtaking views of the Gulf and the surrounding wildlife. Once we reach the fishing spots, you’ll be able to step out of the boat and wade into the shallow waters to fish. The firm, sandy bottoms of the flats make wading easy and enjoyable. These waters are home to a variety of species, including speckled trout, redfish, flounder, and more. Seasonal catches such as pompano, tarpon, and Spanish mackerel are also common.

Fishing Techniques and Gear

Wade fishing in the Chandeleur Islands allows for a hands-on, immersive fishing experience. You are more than welcome to bring all of your own wade fishing gear. However, if you do not have any such equipment, we can provide a limited assortment of lures and wade fishing gear. Topwater baits, shallow-suspending jerkbaits, and swimbaits are particularly effective in these waters.
