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!

Me and my son went out with Captain Chris yesterday and had a great time. Caught a good many different species of fish. Then we took my wife and daughter on a sunset cruise with Captain Chris and they loved it.

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
