Swamp to Sea Guide Service

Come fish with Capt. Patrick Smith, who fishes the entire county of Palm Beach depending on where the bite is hot. Salt or freshwater, day or night, he can put you on your target fish.

Captain Patrick’s boat is an 25’ Carolina Skiff that is equipped with a new trolling motor and the most up-to-date electronics. Top end, high quality equipment and tackle is provided, and both spin tackle and fly fishing equipment available if desired. The captain will also provide cold water, but any other drinks or snacks are up to you.

Whether you want to fish for some of Florida’s many exotic freshwater fish, such as the colorful Peacock Bass or the Clown Knifefish, battle a Tarpon, Jack, or Snook on light tackle, or go out looking for Sharks, Captain Patrick will make sure you have a trip to remember.

The main goal is for you to catch fish and have a great time, and Capt. Patrick will try to do everything possible to make it happen. While he is serious about fishing, he is not a wound-up, tight guide that will be yelling at you if a mistake is made - there is normally no shortage of laughs on the boat!
