I could not be more pleased with my experiences with Reelin Good Charters. Not only has the fishing been great, but the overall experience has always been outstanding. I have used Captain Travis for business trips with entertaining customers as well as family trips with my three boys (all under 15). Travis does a fantastic job in adjusting his fishing plan for both the clients needs as well as their fishing skills to ensure at the end of the day, it was a great trip. My boys are always asking "When we are going fishing with Captain Travis again?"

   I frequently recommend Reelin Good Charters to both business associates and personal friends with the utmost confidence they will have a great fishing experience.

  I was very fortunate to have been sent in the direction of Capt. Travis Lovell for a bachelor party fishing trip a few years ago. Our previous guide had cancelled on us and Capt. Travis was very willing and eager to book our trip less than 24 hours before arrival.

  The knowledge and expertise Reelin’ Good Charters provides optimizes the enjoyment of a South Louisiana fishing trip regardless of the customer’s experience level. Capt. Travis is very accommodating and will ensure a good time to clients of all ages. It’s not just the experience that’s great, the fishing that the Dularge area has to offer day-in and day-out is as good as you will find. Capt’ Travis has the knowledge of the area, fish patterns and high quality equipment to maximize the fishing experience.

  I highly recommend using Reelin’ Good Charters as a primary guide service. It will be hard to find a guide service that exceeds the friendliness, service, and overall fishing experience of Capt. Travis Lovell at Reelin’ Good Charters.

Best fishing guide on Bayou Dularge! On every trip with Captain Travis Lovell he has never failed to put us on lots of fish. I have used Captain Travis for both business trips with customers and father/son outings. In both cases, he was a true professional. Regardless of your fishing experience, he will make you very comfortable. He continuously demonstrates his commitment to go the extra mile to make our trips special. A small example is the time that I wanted to surprise my two boys (ages 10 & 13) with new rods and reels. I ask Captain Travis for a recommendation and he volunteered to find the rods and reels and have them on the boat ready to fish in order to surprise my boys - all I had to do is show up and watch my son's reactions. As an added bonus, not only will you catch fish with Captain Travis, but you will be fishing from the finest boat on the bayou with the best equipment. If you want to create some special fishing memories, give Captain Travis Lovell a call. He will not disappoint - I guarantee!

My wife and I had the opportunity to fish with Capt. Travis Lovell this past summer. With my wife originally being from Louisiana, she really wanted us to go catch some redfish while in town visiting her family. After a high recommendation from a fellow LSU grad, we contacted Captain Travis Lovell. He was very knowledgeable, answered all our questions, and really got us excited about coming down to Bayou Dularge for the day. We were really on the fence about bringing our 9 year old daughter, but Captain Travis strongly encouraged us to bring her along as he expressed how great the fishing had been days prior. He suggested we drive in from Lafayette the night before, recommended a hotel, and even gave us great advice of where to dine while staying in Houma for the night. We had a beautiful morning on the water! It was easy to find his boat lift and once arriving we were quickly underway. Targeting redfish, Capt. Travis told us we would be using blue crab for bait. My daughter loved when we pulled aside a working crab boat to load up with bait. We had an absolute blast catching reds with him! In addition to the great fishing, we saw lots of wildlife and thoroughly enjoyed Captain Travis' knowledge about the waters he has fished his entire life. Back at the dock, he quickly cleaned and iced down all of our fish for us. My daughter and I loved seeing the entire process and even had the chance to feed a few scraps to an alligator hanging near the lift. We could tell the entire day that Captain Travis loves fishing and wants everyone to catch as many as possible. He was energetic, professional, and fun to spend the day with. My daughter said it was the best day of the entire summer. I have fished all over the US and this was the best trip I have ever been on. We will definitely go back out with Captain Travis of Reelin Good Charters when we visit Louisiana in the near future.

  I have had the opportunity to fish with guides all over North America. I have seen just about everything that can go wrong and go right. Capt. Travis Lovell is hands down the best at making sure everyone has a great time. I have never been with a guide that knew every inch of the water he was fishing like Capt. Travis does. It is clear that he has put in the hours on the water and truly loves what he does.

  During our trip there were several pop up thunderstorms that were pretty severe, one of them catching us in the middle of the lake. He never blinked, he kept us safe and his equipment never missed a beat. His 2310 Ranger Bay boat and fishing equipment were very clean, and worked beautifully. 

I will be going back with him as soon as possible.

My family and I scheduled a trip with Captain Travis Lovell while in town visiting New Orleans. We had a fantastic time out with Reelin Good Charters! Captain Travis was very accommodating and quickly responsive when we were looking to schedule our trip. Once we got on board, he was both hospitable and knowledgeable about the area we fished. He gave us tips and showed us how to feel the bite and it was fish on shortly afterwards! Not only did we bring home plenty for dinner, but we got a great look at South Louisiana too! I highly recommend booking a trip with Captain Travis Lovell. Good times!

I have had the pleasure of fishing with Capt. Travis Lovell multiple times and have to say that I have never had a more personable, and experienced guide. For a young aged guide, he has a vast knowledge of the Dularge area as well as the fishing patterns it takes to come back with fish. He always goes out of his way to make sure you have a great time while catching plenty of fish to take home. Even on days where fishing might have been slower than normal due to weather conditions, he wouldn't give up and works even harder to put you on the fish. You won't find a better guide in my opinion. Do yourself a favor and book a trip with Capt. Travis Lovell of Reelin Good Charters.

I'm a displaced Louisianian currently living in Massachusetts, and I won't plan a visit back to my home state without calling Captain Travis Lovell for some fun Louisiana saltwater fishing! If he's not personally available to fish on the week I'm planning to travel, I'll pick a new week to travel. He's never not put us on fish and even on days they weren't supposed to be biting he found them and we had an excellent time catching! He has a SUPER nice fishing rig and uses quality gear too. He's also equipped with more fishing stories than you can handle in a day! All around great trips, all around great guy! Do yourself a favor and give this great guide a call!
