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.

Our family had a great fishing trip with Captain Chris at Captain Smiley's Fishing charters. Captain Patrick did a great job communicating with us to get the trip booked, our boat captain Chris was a pleasure to work with, was very knowledgeable, and did a great job helping our 9 year old with fishing. We caught some nice Flounder and... More

We went out in the am with Patrick, and a deck hand Davis. Had a good morning caught probably 6 flounder and 2 trout. None were keepers but we had a good time and some good conversation. Plan on doing it again, if only he would change that dang visor he wears! Go Tigers!

Captain Smiley took myself and 3 thirteen year old boys on a half day inshore fishing excursion for Flounder. Captain Smiley provided everything we needed including the fun. It was a short and beautifully scenic boat ride to get to the fishing spot. We caught a lot of fish. We lost count of the number of Flounder that we caught... More

We went out this afternoon with captain Chris. We had an amazing time and caught a red fish so big it actually broke the net trying to get him in. I have fished for years at Hatteras in search of a fish like this and we finally found one with captain smileys fishing charters. Captain chris was very nice and... More

Captain Smiley (Patrick) took care of two novice fishers today..... a great morning. We had terrific success catching speckled trout and flounder. Patrick was great offering help to us both. We had great conversation and laughs during the entire morning.... Four thumbs up from Paul and Lee....

We planned a trip for 2 adults and a seven year old girl. We had a blast! Captain Smiley could not have been any nicer! The boat and fishing gear were top notch. The whole trip was kid friendly. We caught 8 fish, but none were keepers. We cannot wait to book another trip! Nothing could have made it any... More

I booked a trip with Patrick knowing it was a bit early in the season and the fishing would probably be tough. While the fishing was a bit slow, Captain Kelly worked extremely hard to find us some fish and he did so. My wife and I managed to catch several trout and one nice redfish. I would recommend Captain... More

I booked a charter with Patrick last May and took my Son and Brother in law. My son and I are avid (freshwater) fishermen, and my Brother in law has never been fishing in his life. Patrick took the time to familiarize us with the boat, the equipment, and the recent fishing report. After getting us into an area that... More
