Reel Charters LLC

P.O. Box 6791
Lake Charles LA, United States

Reel Charters LLC would like to welcome you aboard for a fishing trip you will never forget. Operating out of Lake Charles, LA, Reel Charters specializes in fishing the Calcasieu and Big Lakes, launching from several point to hit the best spots for Redfish, Trout and Flounder, and make full use of the shallow murky waters which make Louisiana such a perfect place to target these species.

The vessel you will be fishing aboard is a 24 ft Transport center console powered by a 300HP Suzuki engine up to a cruising speed of 40 knots. The boat has room aboard for up to 3 guests, and comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, a livewell, and a trolling motor for sneaking up to the secluded spots where the spooky fish love to lurk.

When it comes to the fishing the guys at Reel Charters LLC know that sometimes simple is best. They use tried and tested techniques that have proven successful again and again in the past. They focus on light tackle casting, spinning and popping to bring in the best catch, with the option to purchase live bait when available. Captain Jordan has spent his whole life fishing the Calcasieu Lake and knows all the best spots to take his clients to make sure they take home a huge haul, which he will clean and fillet free of charge at the end of the trip - just make sure you’ve got a big cooler in the trunk because you’re going to need it!

We fished for red fish and caught our limits. The captain was very knowledgeable of the lake and more importantly where the fish were. We had a great time and look forward to the next trip.

These gentlemen had a great trip Monday afternoon with Reel Charters. The young boy had mostly fished up north and never experienced a major fight like the redfish we caught. We had a fantastic time and they really enjoyed themselves. These guys were fortunate enough to catch redfish by fishing the bottom and under a cork. The fishing is really picking up so hurry and book your trip now and get the experience these gentlemen did.

I cannot tell you what a joy it was to fish with Captain Jordan Ardoin!  He made sure we caught lots of Redfish, flounder, sheephead and many more!  He particularly helped me, a Senior, so much!!  My husband is the fisherman but I had the time of my life with Jordan making sure I caught lots of fish!!  We can’t wait to go back.  Jordan knew the waters and where to catch the fish and he made sure to move us if we weren’t getting enough action!  He is the best guide and we wouldn’t go back and fish with anyone but him!!! ( We went out 2 half day trips in the afternoon.)
