February 2017 - Kansas City, MO

What a special place. Carol and Brian did an amazing job hosting me and my Father for short fishing trip. During our four night stay the lodge was clean, spacious, and honestly felt like home. The owner, Carol, was an amazing host, cooking us a great breakfast every morning and local seafood every night. Some of the best parts of our trip were getting to be around him at the lodge. As to the fishing, our guide Brian was an exceptional guide, leading us to dozens of fish every day. We fishing from a kayak and caught mostly Redfish. Had we desired to keep more fish, we would have limited out within the first hour of every day! If you're looking for an historic fishing trip, look no further. CWS

Carol...I am sorry that I have not posted this sooner! My brother, my nephew and my son joined me on a kayak fishing trip in late October, 2016. This was without a doubt the BEST fishing trip we have taken! Reelivin' Lodge is outstanding, and Carol knows what he's doing when it comes to taking care of his customers. We are all talking about our next trip to Reelivin' Lodge! When Carol says he's gonna feed you...get ready! The best eats I've ever had in LA, and that includes the big name restaurants in NOLA. We had a great trip, Carol! Thank you for everything, my friend!

Wow!! What a place. Can hardly call it a fishing camp. Talk about a first class act. Captain Carol and Captain Brian went out of there way to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay. Even though it was extremely windy, they kept trying until we found some nice reds. Can't wait to go back. True Cajun hospitality.

I am from New Orleans, but live in Austin, TX, so I know what to expect – so I thought. We (5 of us) planned this trip over six months in advance with six days of nonstop fishing and nonstop eating. I knew we'd picked the right place when over a week before our trip Carol was getting our beverages cold and the menu planned. I was even more affirmed when he asked us to text him when we were 20 or 30 minutes away from his place so that he could make sure that the charbroiled oysters were coming off the grill timely. Oh yes, a little heaven on earth - "Vuda Baby"! The fishing was beyond fantastic, the showmanship, fellowship, and fishing camaraderie was first class, and the meals and accommodations were unparalleled. Carol LeCompte is a different kind of individual. He's authentic, unique, and gets goosebumps when he catches Speckle Trout. And, then there's this, "Vudu Baby" thing. Well, I aint gonna to tell ya' about that one. Just call "Reelivin Charters" and y'll figure that one out on ya' own. Needless to say, I'll be back – often. Until then, keep castin' and "Vudu Baby"!

The hospitality and accommodations here are second to none not to mention the food is amazing!! Great place to kick back and relax after a fantastic day of fishing. You absolutely cannot go wrong with Reelivin Charters. I can't wait to get back!

I had the pleasure to spend several fantastic days at Reeliven and it was, without exception the best experience that I have had. The hospitality is exceptional and the food and accommodations are absolutely great. There is nothing better after a long day of fishing (great as well) , than to come home to a great meal and then a quality bed. You can't go wrong staying with Carol and I should mention that the fresh oysters he prepared were Killer!

Stayed here last December. The hospitality Carol and Herman showed was beyond excellent. From great food, comfortable beds, the pool and great stories, I'll definitely be back soon. I think I gained a few lbs, too. I highly recommend this lodge run by locals with plenty of fishing knowledge to get you hooked up. Vudu Baby.
