Editorial Reviews

From the Author

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