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’ Blazer Bay center console, originally built in 2007, and restored in 2016. The boat was repowered in 2019 with a brand-new, fuel-efficient 250 HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 55 knots. This speed makes it reliable in getting you to and from the targeted location in a satisfactory time frame.

The crew fishes year-round and they 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, Flounder, and Sheepshead.

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 cleans and fillets your catch.

Enjoy your day on the beautiful waters of Louisiana, and have a great fishing experience with Reel Screamers Guide Service!

Note: We have done everything we can to keep our prices as low as possible however the current economic environment has forced us to make some adjustments. Customers will be charged an additional $50 fuel surcharge as long as fuel prices remain above $4 a gallon.

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.
