1/2 Day Fishing Charter

We had a great time. Caught fish at every stop. Worked good with me especially - very inexperienced to salt water fishing. Highly recommend!!

Spent a wonderful morning fishing the backwaters with Capt. Smiley today. Catching specks, redfish, flounder and snappers on light tackle was a blast. Capt. was very knowledgeable, professional and personable. I will certainly fish with him again and would highly recommend him.

One of the best fishing charters which runs out of Little River. Ask if Captain Landon is available. He can "hook" you on the fish!!

This was my first experience with any type of saltwater fishing. The guys at the marina recommended Capt. Smiley for some in shore fishing. They said he was the best around, and they were right. Our captain was Chris. He was extremely helpful, very professional and knew where the fish were. He made us feel very comfortable on the boat.... More

A buddy of mine and I drove to myrtle beach to drop off a camper and had to come back to Tennessee the next day. We thought of a 1/2 day trip fishing in hopes of some fun and fish to take home. We got both. Had a great time with Capt Patrick and will do it again soon.

Patrick was recommended by a close friend who has used his services several times in the past. I was treating my father in law to a full day of fishing and we were not disappointed by pulling in 12 keepers during the day. Seatrout, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, Whitefish and one African Pompano plus by accident a couple Stingrays and one... More

I took my wife and 2 kids out for an evening tour and we had a great time. We traveled around in the inlet waterways and everything was beautiful as the sun was setting. We are from Winston Salem and go to the beach all the time and will plan on getting back to do some fishing as well. Thanks... More

A couple guys and myself went out with Captain Smiley for an early morning half day trip (8/15). Given it was the middle of summer (water temps were up), we tempered our expectations on how much action we would see. We arrived about 15 minutes before our scheduled departure time, and Patrick was waiting for us on the boat. Everything... More

Went out with Captain Smiley yesterday with my 6 year old son, and had a great time as always! This was my second trip with Patrick and he did not disappoint. Was great with my son and his knowledge of the waters and area is unmatched. Thanks again Patrick and we will be back!
