Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Question: John, why did you write "Fishing Mississippi's Gulf Coast and Visitor's Guide?"
Phillips: I really didn't know that much about saltwater fishing on Mississippi's Gulf Coast until I met a man named Bill McGinnis, then the Director of Outdoor Marketing for Tourism for the State of Mississippi. I'd been writing often about the Upper Gulf Coast for different magazines, and Bill invited me to come to Mississippi's Gulf Coast and fish with him. I was blown-away at how good the fishing was inshore, offshore and every month of the year. Bill was also one of the first PR people I'd ever met in the fishing industry who was willing to work with me from before daylight to well-after dark. Bill helped me find contacts to interview, posed for pictures and held the rope to my float tube when we were 100-miles offshore, and I was photographing fish being landed by the anglers on the boat. Bill and I did a number of stories together.
 
Then when Bill retired, Mike Jones took his place I found that Mike was cut out of the same cloth as Bill. I could go to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, stay 2 days and get 4-6 stories and the photography I needed to go with them. But more importantly, I met warm, friendly people whose company I enjoyed, and I met captains who always said, "Come on back any time we can help you."
 
I was also amazed at the size and the number of fish we could catch. A classic example was when I told Captain Sonny Schindler, "I need to go out and catch speckled trout, redfish and tripletails to photograph." In a half a day, we had limits of all three and time to spare. I also learned that Mississippi's Gulf Coast, because of its location, provided outstanding fishing all year long, not just in the spring, summer and fall.
