Metairie, LA USA
Brandon Carter may be one of the new guides on the block, but his reputation for catching trophy specks has preceded him for several years. At the age of 24, Carter has become known as one of the most respected coastal guides in south Louisiana who exclusively targets big speckled trout.
He'll fish for almost anything, but his forte is catching these monsters that lurk in the lower regions of the Mississippi River Delta. Some say that Carter has a knack for it. And with hundreds of 6- to 7-pound fish to his credit, and many in the 8- to 9-pound class, few would argue.
When Carter started his charter fishing business, Reel Shot Guide Service (985) 969 - 0810, he knew "word of mouth" advertising would bring him some business. But the question was "How much? How fast? And would it be enough to keep his new company afloat?"
His answer was as close as his personal computer.
"I'd say that I get a minimum of 80 percent of my clients through my website on Rodnreel.com," Carter said. "It used to be more than that. Seriously, when I first signed on, I thought I was going to have to hire a secretary to take all of the calls I was getting."
Rodnreel.com has worked for many new and established charter operations, fishing and hunting lodges, bait and tackle manufacturers, and outdoors retailers. And the pros like Carter know that it can work for you!
Like most serious anglers in Louisiana, Carter was already familiar with Rodnreel.com. Since its humble beginnings in 1995, Rodnreel.com has grown into the most popular fishing and hunting websites in the country, with more than 80,000 visitors generating 14 million "hits" every month. One of the reasons we have become so popular and productive for advertisers like Carter, is that our websites have more interesting and useful content than any other outdoors media, including television, newspaper, magazines or websites.
Guests may read informative and entertaining features, breathtaking photos, and up-to-the-minute fishing reports. They also have access to on-line maps that give exact GPS coordinates with the quick click of a mouse. Our sites also include inshore and offshore maps for anglers, as well as complete topographical maps for hunters. We are also linked to the government's Terra Server that gives users full access to aerial photographs of the entire United States. Anglers can also access a database of every offshore oilrig in the Gulf of Mexico, and get the lat/long coordinates, water depth, and the age of the rig. Rodnreel.com also tracks all moveable oilrigs, and updates their positions every Friday.
Astute anglers like Carter know that the possibilities are endless.
"It's an incredible source of information," Carter said. "I always check the weather updates with the links to Doppler radar. And the information I've gotten out of the fishing reports is priceless."
Being uniquely situated in the lower Mississippi River Delta in Venice, clients with Reel Shot Guide Service have the advantage of fishing a wide range of areas in southeast Louisiana. Carter believes Rodnreel.com is a particular help to his guests.
"If the reports say they fish are biting in Four Bayou Pass, we can make the run over there and not waste time," he said. "I found the reports to be honest and accurate."
When Carter has a cancellation and needs to fill a trip in a hurry - the answer is on Rodnreel.com. Carter places an ad in the Fishing Reports Section, and the opening is usually filled within hours.
"I've had to do that several times," he said. "Usually I'll get three or four calls a day."
Rodnreel.com's famous "Fishing and Hunting Reports" and "Pictures of the Best" sections are easy to input and edit and are popular with clients around the world. You can feel confident that your website will be read and will produce business for many years to come. We have been responsible for creating the websites that have booked tens of thousands of trips for clients.
"I had to produce the results by posting regular reports and photos," Carter said. "But Rodnreel.com gave me the medium to be successful.
In a word, Carter said Rodnreel.com works.
"I have high expectations in everything I do," he said. "Rodnreel.com is one of the few things that has met all of my expectations."
