Mississippi Sound, and NORTH winds

So far the only anchorage I have found is Gulfport. Any other spots to anchor with a North wind??? We are East bound towards mobile bay.
hopefully I will keep this updated....

Re: Mississippi Sound, and NORTH winds

--Biloxi Channel ("Casino Row")

--south side of Deer Island. there is a channel running along the island from which they dredged to build up the island. It will be obvious on satellite images

--Round Island's west side, approach from the west. There is recent dredging piled up on north side of Round Island, but west and south are exposed

--If you watch depth, you can just head northward anywhere off the ICW to get out of the fetch, and stop wherever.

Re: Mississippi Sound, and NORTH winds

North winds actually keep the sound flat but low tide is exaggerated and makes for scary low depths. Second for Casino Row between Biloxi Small Craft Harbor and Biloxi Yacht Club pier.

Rock Steady
