With more than 400 miles of coastline to explore and over 200 species of fish waiting to be reeled in, the possibilities are endless. Of course, to find the biggest fish and the best sweet spots, you need to go out on a boat with someone who knows the ropes.

Reasons to Book a Biloxi Fishing Charter

side bet boats

From Amberjack to White Trout and numerous species in between, the Gulf of Mexico holds in store ample opportunities for those who venture out for some offshore fishing. Mississippi’s Department of Marine Resources has created several artificial reefs to draw fish closer to the coastline, and deeper waters farther out are teeming with their own assortment of marine life. Whether you and your group are old pros or newcomers to the art of sport fishing, you’re sure to come away with a trophy or dinner. For these reasons and many others, booking a Side Bet fishing charter is the perfect getaway for virtually any occasion.

  • Guys’ Day Out. Sure, there are plenty of things to do on land when you’re taking off with the guys for a day away from the stress of the daily grind. As they say, though, even a bad day on the water is better than a good day at work. Spend a few hours deep sea fishing, and then head out on the town to keep the day going afterward. You can even bring along beer and snacks if you want. Whether you’re looking to step outside the box for a bachelor party or just hear the fish calling you, a fishing charter is the way to go.
  • Girls’ Day Out. For many people, guys are typically the ones who come to mind when thinking about fishing trips. Plenty of women also enjoy angling, though. In fact, ladies account for at least 35 percent of the regular fishing crowd. Why not take an opportunity to leave the kids with dad, gather some of the girls and take off for a day of fishing? Bring along a bottle or two of wine and enjoy a unique blend of peacefulness and excitement.
  • Top-Notch Equipment. Our boat is equipped with state-of-the-art electronics from Simrad and has a full complement of safety gear. Side bet uses the best Maxel reels and Tsunami tackle available. You don’t have to worry about being equipped for the trip because we take care of all of that for you.
  • Father-Son/Daughter Day.What better way to spend a father-son outing than fishing? Taking a charter boat is an entirely different experience than sitting on the bank by the lake or casting out in a privately owned pay pond. Keep in mind, daughters also often enjoy fishing if they’re given the chance to truly experience it. Taking children fishing gets them away from the television and video games and gives them a reason to appreciate nature. It’ll help build confidence and may even instill in them a little more patience. They’ll always remember the time you spent with them, and their smiles when they reel one in will live in your heart and mind for the rest of your life.
  • Family Fun Away From the Crowds and Noise. Fishing trips make a wonderful alternative or addition to the standard family outing options. They give you a chance to spend time together away from the crowds and noise of the city and help strengthen the bonds between everyone involved. Amusement parks and mini-golf courses are a dime a dozen, but fishing charters stand out. Your entire family will make memories to last a lifetime and have plenty of opportunities to gloat over who caught the most or had the biggest catch of the day.
  • Date Day.Those traditional dinner-and-a-movie dates tend to quickly get monotonous and coming up with new ideas isn’t always easy. Booking a fishing charter with the professionals at
    Side Bet provides a little alone time and gives you something to talk about for years to come. It’s also an exciting idea for a double date. You might even get to impress your date with your fishing skills. Of course, your date may surprise you with his or her own aptitude for angling. Either way, it’s a fun, memorable day and something well outside the ordinary.
  • Sport Fishing Charters Come with Bragging Rights.Scheduling a sport fishing charter comes with plenty of bragging rights. Not everyone can say they’ve been there and done that. You’ll get to tell everyone all about the trip during the days leading up to it and boast about your catches and the details surrounding them for weeks afterward. It’s sure to make your friends and co-workers at least a little envious.

As former President Jimmy Carter said: "Many of the most highly publicized events of my presidency are not nearly as memorable or significant in my life as fishing with my daddy."
Whether you’re heading out for a day with friends or taking your son or daughter on his or her first fishing trip, a boat charter offers everything you need to create a memorable experience. It’ll make a positive impression on anyone who’s lucky enough to come along.
