Captain Daryl has fished the freshwater spillways of south Louisiana since he was a boy. From there, he migrated to Grand Isle, Louisiana to try his hand at deep sea guiding and has never looked back since!

Captain Daryl says he never uses just one style of fishing on his charters. Instead, he caters each trip to the group based on how the fish are reacting.

Captain Daryl is attentive and friendly, equally excited to make sure you catch fish AND have a great time.

On this 3-hour trip, you’ll participate in a quickly eroding practice of small boat shrimping the way that thousands of folks have provided food for their tables in past generations.

You’ll participate in pulling a bottom trawl then exploring it’s catch as you pick out the shrimp that you want to keep. Captain Daryl will provide all the necessary trawling equipment.

Mr. Daryl is the first charter I've ever taken, and I would not hesitate to book him again. From the first minute you meet him, he's cutting up with jokes and makes you feel like you've known him for a long time. He quickly put us into a steady supply of HUGE trout. Not a single one had to be thrown back. Can't wait to do this again.

Captain Daryl was awesome, teaching us to trawl and explaining everything we needed to know. The shrimp were running and we filled three ice chest with shrimp and now our freezer is stocked. Would definitely recommend for a new exciting experience.

Daryl put us on the fish early before the weather moved in and we had a great time. When we finished he took us back to his camp and offered us some boiled crabs while he cleaned our catch. Great captain, and really enjoyed his wisdom on the water. I would recommend this fishing guide to anyone looking to catch fish, and have a great time doing it.

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!! Rip ‘sum Lips!!!
