Red Snapper Fishing Charters

What We Catch | Early June - Mid August

Experience a red snapper fishing charter with Down the Bayou to find out why red snapper fishing in Louisiana is such a popular hobby. One of the Gulf’s greatest resources, the elusive red snapper is some of the best meat you can bring home to fill up the freezer.

Red snapper season usually opens June 1st and can last anywhere from mid-July to the end of August.  Our red snapper fishing charters usually search for red snapper on some of our usual wrecks and rock piles in 60 to 500 feet of water. These spots aren’t fished as hard, which leads to bigger, hungrier red snapper!

Reaching up to 50 pounds, the red snapper provides a great fight and an even better meal. If you have an itch for some red snapper fishing in Louisiana and are looking for some fun, look no further than Down the Bayou.
