Captain Smiley Fishing charters was an excellent experience. Captain smiley (Patrick Kelly), was very knowledgeable on the water, and was consistently putting us on fish. Patrick was very nice, and has a way with people. He talks with you as though he had known you all of your life. If the fish are not biting, he is not going to... More

We had a really good time fishing with Captain Patrick. He was very informative and knew the waters very well. The first spot we went to to catch bait was extremely successful, catching shrimp by the hundreds on the first cast of the net. We immediately went a fishing spot and slayed the Speckled Trout. After catching 6 keepers we... More

We came down on a family vacation, we had a great time! We caught some fish no keepers though but we still had an awesome time. Our captain, Greg, was a specular captain. He was very personable, friendly and overall a great captain. I would highly recommend these guys for a charter, money well spent!

Went out with Capt Patrick today. The trip was triple aces! Capt Patrick was excellent in his knowledge and worked hard to put us on fish, providing tips to ensure we had the best possible experience. Will definitely book again!

Carried my 13 year old son out with Captain Patrick of Captain Smiley's Fishing Charters in Little River, SC on 06/27/16. We had a great time and caught a pile of Speckled Trout and Flounder. We had Flounder in the 19" class and my son lost a huge Redfish. We had a ball. I can promise you if you're looking... More

Captain Smiley was an excellent captain. He took us places that I didn't think his boat could get to. We hit several spots. The fishing wasn't that great that day, but it wasn't for not trying. He is extremely knowledgable and knows the area like nobody else. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND CAPTAIN SMILEY. I will definitely fish with him again... More

We chartered out a week ago and had a blast. Within a couple minutes from leaving the marina, we were reeling the fish in like crazy. There were four of us and we all caught at least 5 fish. Captain Smiley gives good instructions and has a great sense of humor.

Went out today with Capt. Smiley and It was truly a memorable fishing trip. We were hesitant that we would go due to the storm but the weather broke and it was on. Captain Smiley is a true professional and he knows a few jokes as well. He knows the area very well and once you fish with him you... More
