    About Us


    Hello Friends
    Reel Fun® Enterprises, LLC was started by my wife and I to make and market products for the outdoor market. We currently have two products to offer, Catcher’s Mitt® and Tipster®. Both are unique and help you catch more fish. What could be better than that! The Catcher’s Mitt® you wear on your side and it keeps your hands clean and safe while you handle your catch. The Tipster® is a fishing device that you set out and it does all the work. When it tips up it is time to check it to see what you caught.

    Both Libby and I have fished all of our lives and these products help us enjoy our time together on the water. They say a picture is worth a thousand words so take a little time to view the pictures and videos to see the products in action. If you have any questions about the products or our company gives us a call.

    Soft rides and hard strikes

    Catcher’s Mitt keeps hands dry, cleanrnRetractable cord, optional pliers make removing fish fast and slime-freern rnBy Patrick Boninrn rnThe old adage says necessity is the mother of invention, and in the case of Mark Cartwright, copious amounts of redfish and speckled trout slime led to his creation of the Catcher’s Mitt — designed to keep your hands dry, clean and cut-free while out on the water unhooking fish.rn rn“Several years ago, my best friend had the best fishing spot in the world. It’s a big camp on Big Lake on a weir. If you’ve ever been to Big Lake, you’ve probably seen it on the south end,” said Cartwright, of Baton Rouge. “In that weir, sometimes the redfish were so thick you could practically walk across them. He’d invite friends and business associates, and he had lights, so people would fish all day and night.rn rn“We were constantly handling fish, and we’d use pliers and rags. I said, ‘There’s got to be an easier way than this.’ So I started working on something you could handle fish with, and it grew from that.”rn rnHis first prototype was created about four years ago, and now the Catcher’s Mitt is available in three distinct models. For each, a poly-cotton shell is coated inside and out with latex rubber, and the outside of the mitt has a crinkled rubber finish for superior gripping ability.rn rnThe main version is the Rookie, which retails for $39.99 and includes a sheath with a coil bungee connected to fishing pliers. A reel with a retractable cord connected to the mitt is attached to the sheath, and a towel to keep your pants clean is included.rn rn“The Catcher’s Mitt has a J-Clip on the sheath which will go over a belt or over a waistband, so you don’t actually have to have a belt to wear it,” Cartwright said. “And the towel helps keep slime and blood from transferring to your pants. One side of towel is vinyl, the other is microfiber.”rn rnThe Surf & Kayak model, made for wet conditions, doesn’t come with a towel, and the mitt has built-in grommets in the fingertips for easy drainage. That version sells for $37.99, but Cartwright cautioned it’s not as effective for cleaning fish because of the grommet holes in the fingers of the mitt.rn rn“You reach in to get a fish out of the ice chest and guess what? You have cold, slimy water in the mitt,” he said. “But the models without grommets are very good for cleaning fish and shucking oysters.”rn rnThe final model is the Prospect, which features the reel and mitt plus a towel, but no pliers. It retails for $24.99.rn rnBoth the Prospect and Rookie models come in a pink-trimmed ladies’ design, as well. Left and right hand options are available for all models except the Surf & Kayak.rn rn“The mitt is one size fits most,” Cartwright explained. “It doesn’t really matter if it’s a little big because the tension of the reel keeps it snug to your hand.”rn rnCurrently, there are about 13 dealers statewide, including Superior Bait and Tackle in Baton Rouge, Chag’s and Puglia’s in Metairie, Gus’ Tackle and Rigolets Marina in Slidell and TYD’s Bait and Tackle and Top Water Marina in Leeville. rn rnFor more information, or to purchase the Catcher’s Mitt online, go to reelfunenterprises.com.

    Tipsters float horizontally when set. When a fish bites and tips the Tipster over 40 degrees, the weight of the internal weight releases and falls. Then it floats vertically. When you go to run them you only have to check the ones that are upright. rnrnThey are available in packs of 3 for $19.99 or a dozen in a bucket for $74.99. rnrnhttps://www.reelfunenterprises.com/product-page/tipster-3-packrnrn225.938.6488
