Reel Screamers Guide Service invites you for an exciting fishing adventure on Grand Isle, Louisiana. The charter operates full time and is owned and operated by Captain Daryl Carpenter who has fished the waters of Louisiana his entire life. He works with an extremely experienced and professional crew of fishermen who will make sure your day on the waters is fun and productive.

You will fish aboard a 24-foot Blazer Bay center console, originally built in 2007, and restored in 2016. The boat is powered by a 200HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 30 knots. This speed makes it reliable in getting you to and from the targeted location in a satisfactory time frame.

Reel Screamers Guide Service fishes year round and are dedicated to treating you as a customer, thus doing everything they can to make sure that you have a good time on the water. Their trips are tailored to your request, usually leaving the dock at or just before first light.

Your targeted species on the inshore trip will be Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and more.

You will spend the day interacting with the crew and soaking in nature, while the crew works their magic. They will give their all to try keeping your lines tight and your reels screaming.

Once you return to the dock, you are free to relax in the shade, grab a delicious lunch, take a nap, or whatever tickles your fancy while the crew professionally clean and fillet your catch.

About the Captain

Daryl Carpenter
Grand Isle, Louisiana, United States
Member since February 2017
Captain Daryl Carpenter is the owner and operator of Reel Screamers Guide Service. He has fished the freshwater spillways of south Louisiana since he was a boy. His desire to catch bigger fish had led him to the banks of the Gulf of Mexico where he found his personal haven and the bass boat was quickly sold. He then started the charter and grown it to a 3 boat operation offering inshore and nearshore trips.
Response time: 13 hours

Well Mother Nature was uncooperative on the day we were to head out.  She delayed us for a couple of days.  Today we were able to go and we HIGHLY enjoyed it.  Capt. Daryl was very polite and knowledgeable.  He put us on the fish very quickly.  We/I highly recommend Reel Screamers Guide Services!!
