Bio: Capt. Robert “Earl” McDaniel was born and raised on the beautiful Back Bay Biloxi shores, and has been a licensed fishing charter boat Captain since 2001. “I have enjoyed fishing as well as boating these beautiful Mississippi waters all my life, and I enjoy it as much today as ever. What a great place to be at the ‘crack of dawn’ or anytime for that matter, its just a great place to be, so I like to spend as much time possible even when not fishing, out running crab pots or catching bait. I keep a large variety of bait fish (croaker, pin fish, menhaden etc) on hand for each trip so we always have what the big fish want (specks, cobia, reds, snapper). I have always enjoyed tournament fishing, and have won several snapper, cobia, and king mackerel tournaments. I try to stay prepared for all situations on the water.” The "WhipaSnapa" is a 2009, 29 foot c/c open fishermen “SOW MASTER” with twin 2009 250 Yamaha 4 strokes "SWEET". The boat has all modern conveniences including: private restroom, top notch GPS / fish finder, hard-top/enclosures to get out of the elements, plus the finest fishing tackle and weapons, “rods” on board at all times.. We carry all U.S.C.G. required safety equipment on board for the safest, most enjoyable trip. The WhipaSnapa, being just the right size, allows us to go into shallow back bay waters fairly easily to get to the specks, reds, and flounders, or out to the beautiful Barrier Islands for excellent fishing, camping, photography or just relaxing. Or we can get offshore some 100 miles to chase the big boys like "sow" red snapper, cobia, king mackerel, grouper, tuna, and sharks. One thing I have always enjoyed about a day on the wonderful Gulf of Mexico - you just never know. So come join us for a day on the WhipaSnapa and see for yourself how wonderful it can be!

[Biloxi,MS] Still some great fishing going on in the Gulf of Mexico
[Biloxi,MS] Watching folks have that much fun is good for the soul! And guess most of weekend was good for the soul. What a great few days, I have had a blast!!

[Biloxi,MS] Pretty good box 3 Cobia, 25 Mangroves, white trout(15 or so), 3 lane snapper, couple really nice flounders also.
[Biloxi,MS] Moan down South Ms. jump on the Whipasnapa!! And let's go put the (meat in the box)! Bay full of red an black drum;;;;;;; Mangroves, Kings, and Cobia are thick offshore.
[Biloxi,MS] Boy, it was great as we rounded the end of east Horn Island, da ol'mighty orange one was peeking up over the horizon an Capt. was grinning from ear to ear. South bound baby!!
[Biloxi,MS] Still no definite word on the snapper season but trout, reds, flounder, drum, sharks etc.. will keep us entertained with tight lines till then
[Biloxi,MS] They talking about opening Snapper Season for a hot minute so keep your fingers crossed! Still got alot of good fishing to do this season, the best is yet to come.
[Biloxi,MS] Large numbers of the fast, steady and tasty, white trout(no dots), with a few large, sporadic, and tasty speckle trout(dots) have been transported to their resting place.
[Biloxi,MS] Come on down folks, the water and seafood (fish) are fine!
[Biloxi,MS] Looking for them to loosen the reins a lil bit more soon (open more). But I sure would like a lil federal water! Let's hope and pray!! Sure am itching to get on out there. Think the Whipasnapa needs it too, where she can get aired out. If they do; should be good. There is no report of any damage to any finfish.
[Biloxi,MS] Bay should continue to be hot, as the weather! Islands opening up for some catch and release.
[Biloxi,MS] Bay is alive. Come on down South Mississippi and step aboard the WHIPASNPAPA! That's all you have to do
[Biloxi,MS] Some really good fishing fixen take place in the Back Bay. Should be able to get on some specks, flounders, reds, white trout, ground mullet, black drum, spanish and lady fish have been hung coming in also.
[Biloxi,MS] Thanks so much for the good times! Oil is here and it is heart wrenching.
