Captain
Daryl Carpenter

Member since February 2017 Grand Isle, United States
Background
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.
Techniques
We have no preferred style of fishing. Each and every customer has his / her own skill level and as their host for the day it is our job to make them as successful as we possibly can while catering to their skill level. We always try to teach a little bit but the fish are king in this world and we have to adjust daily to what they want and how they want it.
