Cap. Travis is the best. Down to earth. Low key. Very accommodating. Asked what we wanted to catch. Put us on the trout right away. Catching two at time. Never seen fish so thick in water. Moved on to the bull reds and limited out almost immediately. Caught some more trout on the way in and had cooler full of cleaned and bagged fish by 2pm. My second trip with him was the same. Great guy awesome drummer. Besure to find out where he's jamming.

AWESOME trip!!! Great guide. My son and I have fished with him many, many times over the years and NEVER been disappointed.

It was very windy and cloudy but we had a great captain and a great time. We caught some Trout. Some Redfish and a Large Mouth Bass. For kind of pour conditions the Captain knew what to do and where to go to catch fish. Would charter him again definitely.

Travis Lovell took us out in heavy fog, took his time to protect his fisherman from the elements. Set the boat in a safe position as we fished for red fish and caught a good batch of bull reds. The fishing was great and both days were filled with big bull reds and wore his fishermen out. Travis is a class act from start from finish!

My wife and I had never been fishing in the marsh before. We made a post on Facebook asking for charter recommendations. MULTIPLE people recommended Travis Lovell with Reelin Good Charters. We contacted him and booked a weekend. We had an amazing time and caught plenty of fish. Best of all, we gained a lifetime friend. I highly recommend Travis for anyone looking to experience fishing in Louisiana!

I’ve chartered numerous trips through Capt. Lovell, both for personal and professional trips. My entire family as well as clients always ended the trip saying Travis is their favorite guide!! He’s easy going, efficient, and a wonderful personality to be around all day! Plus you always go home with a ton of fish!! Friend of mine have taken their small children in a trip and they had the best day ever! He was even great with the kids.  
I would highly recommend Travis for any family or work trip. He truly is my favorite Captain to charter with! 😁
