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

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!

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

Patrick was on time, very personable and gave us a lot of insight about the area. He had a clean boat with well maintained equipment. He was very attentive to our fishing needs as well. He tried hard to find fish, but we didn't catch any until the last stop! We know that is how fishing is, so nothing negative... More

We had a great with Captain Patrick "Smiley". We were in Myrtle for Spring break with my 2 teens 15 year old boy & 19 year old girl. We wanted to go with a charter to get on some bigger fish. We looked at a number of charters. One consideration was that my daughter had been sea-sick on a deep... More

This guy knows where the fish are. I highly reccommend planning a fishing charter with him when u come down. Once again I have nothing but great things to say about the fishing trip.
