Great trip. Started out slow, but Patrick "Captain Smiley" kept with it and the 2nd half of the trip we hit some nice fish. Boat is clean, rods and reals are like new. Patrick is a great Captain. Personable, no pressure. Just a nice easy fun time. He does need to brush up on his jokes..He only has 2.. If... More

Patrick knew the water, was prompt in his responses through the booking process, and was very personable on the boat. I'd definately book another charter with him

I hadn't been fishing in at least 15 years, and that had been on a small backwoods pond. Patrick was exceedingly friendly and helpful. He even baited my lines! (I'm a bit of a girly girl, and not one for slippery items, so this was extremely welcomed!). The fishing locations were beautiful, and even though the fish weren't biting a... More

Capt. made sure my daughters had fun and caught fish. This is my second time out with Patrick but the first fishing trip for my daughters. Expected slow day but Patrick got us on some trout, red fish and flounder. Great time had by all.

Fished with Patrick in July. Knew that fishing may not be the best, but tried anyway. We enjoyed the boat ride and caught some fish, but no keepers. He made the trip fun and worked hard to get us some fish. Will probably try to fish with him again later in the year. Call early and reserve your trip. Patrick... More

We went out in September of 2013. This was our first time fishing inshore on a charter. We only caught one flounder on a half day trip but captain Smiley tried everything he could to get us some fish. They just werent biting that day. His knowledge of the area was impressive and he has traveled the world. We are... More

2nd year of fishing with Captain Smiley. My boys (9 &12) and I loved it. Caught a red, a flounder and many trout. Had a great time on the boat and found Patrick very personable. Will book again!

4 of my family including me went out with Capt Smiley today to get a little line stretching in. And we were not disappointed . we all got into some nice size flounder and speckled trout. Captains equipment is top notch, not your Wally World economy fishing gear!. IF YOU DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT FISHING , Capt smiley will show... More

My 16 year old loves to fish however his father has absolutely no fishing knowledge to share. Booked a trip with Capt Smiley. They didn't catch a lot of fish however a week later my son is still telling me about the stuff he learned. He thoroughly enjoyed his trip. Will definitely book again.

My husband and I were vacationing when a terrible emergency occurred and we were unable to attend our scheduled fishing trip. At this time, Patrick sent me a text message stating the time for the next day to go out. I replied that we were no longer able to go because of what had happened. He replied the following... Gee...

I know things come up in peoples lives. I always request that my customers call me the night before the fishing trip. I gave this customer a call two days before the trip and had no response. After turning away people I thought this customer would have called me back. It really bothers me to put all the prep into... More
