Whipa Snapa Charters
Captain Robert Earl McDaniel ( Squirrel, Curly, Cap, Capt Earl, Whoop'em or Fish Slayer) seems everyone has a different nickname for me!! I only like to fish by myself or with someone.
I was born 6-64 and raised along the shores of the Mississippi Gulf Coast where I married my most awesome wife Tracie. Two fantastic boys Brandon (1993) and Justin (1995) along with the greatest parents father, Robert C McDaniel (Bob) from Neshoba County, Mississippi and owner of Biloxi's Bob's Grocery, and my mother, Geraldine Poe (Sally) from Grenada, Mississippi owner of Grocery Basket.
Being on or near the water whether it be fishing, shrimping, crabbing, throwing a cast net or just boating that's where I'm most at peace. It's a way of life for me, that I have enjoyed my whole life. Always within casting distance from the Biloxi Back Bay I learned to catch and cook what it has to offer and still enjoy learning. Along with fishing, I've been in and out of construction my whole life. So I appreciate and know all about a good hard days work.
I started fishing offshore in 1987 with a couple childhood friends when I feel in love with it. Something kept making me want to go back for more, the fascinating things you'd see and catch and learn each and every day offshore fishing. Very challenging yet rewarding!
The "TUG OF WAR" of a good fish still excites me today as much as the first. Seeing our guest catch a trophy fish or sometimes their first fish is very gratifing.
Guess I need to mention I have a brother who is THE Mississippi State Record Cobia holder since 1996 #106.8 Randy McDaniel. Many other state and world records have been set aboard the WhipaSnapa.....
If you go fishing with me you're going to get a patient, passionate, well prepared and respectful captain with a bunch of knowledge of boating and catching fish in our area. All my boating and fishing equipment is going to be nice and kept well maintained. I WILL go the extra mile for you! All you do is come aboard with small cooler, food, drinks and a positive attitude

INSHORE LIGHT TACKLE TRIP
****INSHORE (BACKWATER/PROTECTED WATERS) We run this trip year around and this is our most booked trip. Great for freezer filler or catch and release. Affordable for 1 person and economical for 4-6 people... I have been fishing this area my whole life!!! Great trip for Red Drum (red fish) and black drum (puppy drum) as these are the most caught and abundant 12 months out of the year... St. Record black drum is 70.5 lb St. Record red is 40 lb. They are hard fighting fish & simply amazing cooked on the grill half shelled or many other ways!! Trout and flounder are year round also... Sheepshead are a great add on for winter fishing!!!. We use dead and live shrimp to fish with "EVERYTHING" eats shrimp.... In March around the spring equinox the waters warm and fish such as ground mullet, white trout, mackerals, triple tails and other spawning fish show up in large hungry schools!!! You never really know what you're going to get. The 4 hr trip seems to work best and is most booked!! But the 2 hr or 6 to 7 hr trips are great also! No wasted time here we fish in close proximity of the boat ramp and is all protected waters... Boo koodles of structure, bridges, piers, oyster reefs, and sunken debris from years of storms... Biloxi Back Bay has several little Islands that go right down the middle, which leads to deep channels and grassy beds. Makes for great fishing! We use all light to medium tackle spinning reels and rods... Which works best as you can change them from left hand to right hand as needed and are easiest to learn how to operate best for our type fishing.... Most of the time there's no long casting involved... as long as you can keep a tight line and feel a bite you can catch fish. We're mostly fishing shrimp either on top or bottom... I found fresh dead shrimp to be just as productive as live although we usually have both. We fish more live shrimp from November through February as the sheephead and speckled trout seem to prefer them more... There are no closed seasons on fish like there is in federal water... legal size limits tho..Keep them all, keep a few, give a few away or catch and release ?? Your call!!!!
