Patrick has 6- and 12-hour expeditions on offer, where you will combine inshore action with trolling for King and Spanish Mackerel. It usually takes up to 20 minutes to get to the fishing holes.

You’ll use Daiwa, Ugly Stik, and Shimano rods and reels to get your catch into the boat, and Capt. Patrick will provide live bait and lures.

You can get your catch cleaned and filleted for a small additional charge, and whatever you don’t want to eat, you can release. Families with kids are welcome, it’s preferable if the little ones are 4 and older, your guide will have life jackets for everyone.

Pack a supply of drinks, snacks, and food, some sunscreen, and a camera, and leave everything else to Capt. Patrick. Join Trick ‘Em Charters for a day on the water and create lasting memories!
