We fished with Capt. Rood on July 22 and had a 3 boat charter. I appreciate Patrick’s hard work to provide us with two addition captains who knew their way around the Mosquito Lagoon and their ability to put us on the fish. In a four hour charter, our boat caught 24 speckled trout to 22”. The others boats had similar results. My friend had not fished much and Capt. Rood took the time to explain the methods, hooksets, etc. so he could be successful. We will be back and we will charter with Capt. Rood!

My son and I have fished many areas in Florida from Pensacola to The Keys. We’ve fished on our own and used many guides over the past 10 years. Honestly, today was just one of those days. We hooked first cast and that set the tone. We lost count to the number of fish we landed. My son, who is a much better fisherman than I am, probably landed 25. I hooked on a huge redfish and Captain Patrick talked me through it. My personal record, 30lbs. Aside from helping us catch a butch of fish, Captain Patrick is a great guy. He grew up in the area and is an encyclopedia of information. The conversation on the trip was as much fun as the fishing. Already planning to take my 18 year old daughter out on a trip with Captain Patrick.

We had a fantastic time with Captain Patrick! The goal was for my son to catch some fish - and we did just that. Captain Patrick put us in the right spots and we reeled in 20+ fish in less than 4 hours. It was a great experience for my 11 year old son and Captain Patrick took the time to teach him better technique. Looking forward to another trip with Captain Patrick our next vacation in Florida!

Captain Patrick was fantastic with my boys and I - very patient and extremely knowledgeable of not only fishing of course, but also of the local area and history, how the islands were formed, how to shop for a boat, questions on tackle, etc. Just to be in the boat and drive around having conversation with him sharing his knowledge with my boys and I would have made for a good morning had the fishing been slow - but he PUT US ON THE FISH! It was incredible - and what was funny, there was a another guide with a party on the spot we were headed for, so we held back a few minutes and observed - they left and were not catching anything - we pulled in and Captain Patrick said to get ready - and BAM!! We killed it - arms were tired from catching so many trout - we lost count! Captain Patrick takes great pride in his craft, and will share his knowledge! AND, he spends hours making sure he is prepared the day before getting the best live bait that he catches himself - he doesn’t just go buy live shrimp like many other charters. Highest recommendation!!

My son & I had a great time chasing trout with Captain Patrick. He is very knowledgeable, friendly & easy for both me & my 16 year old son to have a conversation with. We hit a bunch of spots & We’re fortunate to catch some good fish. I highly recommend Captain Patrick.
