Types Of Fish In Biloxi Mississippi Waters

Common Fish Types:

Here are some on the fish that you can catch or your Biloxi trip, remember we don't list everything. You may hook more then what you see here.

Atlantic Spadefish

Gulfwide, in nearshore and offshore waters. They are usually found in schools near deep pilings, wrecks and reefs. They are especially common at offshore oil and gas platforms in the northern Gulf.

 

Black DrumBlack Drum

This common fish is found Gulf wide, from brackish estuarine waters out to near shore offshore waters. Black drum are found on mud, sand and shell bottoms and medium to large specimens are very common on oyster reefs.

 

Blacktip Shark

The blacktip shark is an extremely fast, energetic predator that is usually found in groups of varying size. Fish make up some 90% of the blacktip shark's diet. In the Gulf of Mexico, the most important prey of the blacktip shark is the Gulf menhaden. Most blacktip sharks are found in water less than 30ft.

 

Bluefish

Bluefish are green to greenish-blue on their backs, shading to silver-white on their sides and belly. Their jaws are equipped with small, razor sharp, shark-like teeth. Schools of bluefish ferociously attack fish both smaller and large fish.

 

Coba (Lemonfish)

Cobia are not bashful feeders, chasing down food from the top to the bottom of the sea. They seem to especially prefer crabs. By far the most  common food they eat are hardhead catfish, followed by eels. As cobia grow a greater percentage of their diet is made up of finfish.

 

FlounderFlounder

This common fish is found Gulf wide, on mud, and to a lesser degree, sand bottoms, from shallow, low-salinity estuaries to near shore and shallow offshore waters. Southern flounders commonly enter fresh water and have been found 100 miles up rivers.

 

Ground MulletGround Mullet

This species is found Gulf wide on sand and sandy-mud bottoms inshore in estuaries and offshore out to depths of about 30 feet.

 

Jack Crevalle

Crevalle jacks school by size, with the largest fish forming the smallest schools. When prey species are sighted, often near the surface, they make spectacular slashing attacks, with prey fish attempting to escape leaping in panic in every direction. After attack, they regroup for their next assault.

 

King Mackerel

King mackerel are found Gulfwide in open nearshore and coastal waters. While these fish as adults are seldom found inshore, they are found as near to shore as clear water can be found.

 

PompanoPompano

The fish is found Gulf wide in the surf zone, major bays with sandy bottoms, and in coastal waters. In the northern Gulf, they are a seasonal fish, appearing in the warmer months. Preferred water temperatures are 82-98ºF and they are seldom found below 62ºF.

 

RedfishRedfish

Red drum are found Gulf wide, from low-salinity or even freshwater estuaries out to offshore waters at least 50 feet deep. Red drum are not fussy about bottom type, being found on everything from soft mud to hard bottoms of shell hash and oyster reefs. Often, large schools of large red drum will congregate at near shore artificial reefs and oil and gas platforms in the northern Gulf

 

Spanish Mackerel

Spanish mackerel are schooling predators that relentlessly attack schools of smaller fish, especially anchovies. Often, diving gulls will attack the terrified prey fish forced to the surface by the mackerel and other fish that join them, such as spotted seatrout, jacks, ladyfish, and bluefish. Feeding Spanish mackerel will gracefully leap clear of the water.

 

Speckled TroutSpeckled Trout

Found Gulf wide from deep interior estuaries out to 30 feet of water offshore. They are a schooling species, especially when small. They are not particularly attracted to hard bottoms or structure, but tend to be found in areas of current

 

White Trout

Sand white trout are found Gulf wide, from bay and estuarine waters to offshore waters 300 feet deep. Larger fish are more common in offshore waters of moderate depths and in deep holes inshore. It prefers sand or mud bottoms. In the Gulf of Mexico, the fish is least common in southern Florida. Seasonally, large white trout will congregate at offshore oil and gas platforms in moderately shallow water depths.
