Underdog Fishing Charters

Ready for a Red Snapper bonanza? Team up with Captain Joey Lapeyrouse of Underdog Fishing Charters when the Red Snapper is at its peak in June and July and you can catch real lunkers. Your guide has over 2 decades of experience on the local waters and can smell great fishing action.

His 24’ Twin Vee catamaran has been freshly restored in 2019 and is a good fit for both nearshore and offshore trips. The boat sports twin 115 HP Suzuki engines that will get you to the best bite in no time, as well as navigational electronics to stay on the fish’s trail.

Capt. Joey doesn’t just specialize in hunting Red Snapper, he also runs offshore trips where you can hook the prized species of the bluewater. Because the vessel has a federal license, it can go further offshore, so if you’re on the lookout for your next trophy, this is the charter for you.

When the season is open, Red Snapper is the star of the show, and whether you’re looking for quantity, quality, or both, the waters around Dauphin Island are the place to be. Here, you can also reel in anything from sizeable Cobia and Amberjack to Bull Mahi Mahi, Gray Triggerfish, and King Mackerel.

Share your fishing passion with your kids and bring them along on a trip with Underdog Fishing Charters, you will have a wonderful time. The exciting Red Snapper fishing action awaits!
