My group went out fishing on Oct. 30 with Captain Smiley. He is very friendly and a great guide, also tells amusing jokes. Everyone caught something good to eat, black drums and trout. He was recommended by a friend and I would recommend him, as well.

Went on on the morning of October 31. There was no trick but a great treat. Captain Pat was not only a great guide but a very friendly person. He made it feel like you have know each other for years. The boat was extremely comfortable. My father who is 79 had no problem out fishing us and never showed... More

We fished with Patrick on 21 Oct.. The morning was cool but a great day to be on the water. Patrick set expectations from the start with reports from previous trips and inquiring about our expectations for fishing the day. He worked hard to find fish and use different baits and techniques to fish in the boat. The day started... More

Fishing with Patrick was a real privilege. He was there early and the first thing on the agenda was to catch bait. My first thought was ,oh no, this may take a while. He flung his net twice in a five minute span and we had enough bait for the entire trip. He assembled different riggings for each stop and... More

Patrick is a great guy and is knowledgeable on the water. However he's far from a stand up comedian! Just kidding Patrick. I did tell him a new joke about the "tough broad!" Be sure to ask him that one! By the way, this was our second outing with him and we're looking forward to the third.

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
