I fished with Captain Smiley Fishing Charters yesterday with a couple of my good customers. We had an outstanding time and filled the cooler with speckled sea trout. Captain Patrick is an outstanding guide who I will fish with again! We did a full day charter. Patrick was very knowledgeable and put us on fish in several great spots throughout... More

My father brother and I recently used captain smiley for a half day charter. We arrived at the dock, unaware of where the boat or Patrick were. We walked down the dock and finally found him and his boat. Upon boarding, ready to fish, Patrick informed us that he needed bait. So we spent the first hour and a half... More

Jeff, I'm sorry you feel this way about fishing. Hurricane Joaquin hit our area hard the month of October. Over 24 inches of rain fell in a mater of 36 hours, it's has been called a 1000 year flood. Trips lately have been up and down. We have plenty of fish but the bite and bait can be fickle. I... More

Had a great day with Capt. Patrick he really goes the extra mile to help you catch fish. Went with him right after all the rains the water was very dark making fishing conditions poor. We all caught at least one nice fish thanks to Capt. Patrick. We will defined go with him again.

I have fished with Patrick several times prior to this charter and booked a customer appreciation outing with him. He worked hard all day and was very attentive to my customers. He got us on the fish and it paid off in the minds of my customers. My guys had a great time and it is all they talk about... More

I have known Capt. Smiley for almost 30 years. The entire time I have known him he has spent time on boats in the creeks and inlet. You will have a hard time finding a guide with the knowledge he has. On top of that he's a cool guy and fun to be around. He'll make any trip more than... More

Thanks Capt. Harold for a great morning fishing trip. The boat was clean, well appointed and in excellent condition. Harold made every effort to help us raise fish. The restaurant made delicious fish sandwiches with our catch. Definitely recommend!

We had a great time fishing with Captain Patrick of Smiley Fishing Charters. I am an avid fisherman but had my 17 year old daughter and one of her friends who very seldom go fishing. He was very patient with them, teaching them to cast, reel and all other fishing details. We caught some nice flounder (which we ate today)... More

If you are looking for a great half day of fishing you have to go out with Captain Smiley. Patrick (a.k.a. as Captain Smiley) was a wonderful guide and host. He took us to some great fishing spots and we caught several fish. He baited our hooks and cleaned our fish. We would definitely charter with him again.
