"I took a guided trip on mosquito lagoon with captain Patrick. I have been on a lot of guided trips before in many locations and never once had somebody with the knowledge, personality, and determination to put you on good fish like Patrick does. His local knowledge is unparalleled. If there’s not good conditions in one spot he’s not going to let you sit there and cast aimlessly he’s going to move to a spot where the fish are biting. We caught massive redfish along with absolute monsters of trout. Capt Patrick went the extra mile from catching the best bait, to top notch gear, and an amazing boat he’s got. 10/10 experience overall. Safe to say we will be back." -Rich F.
"If you want a guide that will go the extra mile to put you on fish, Patrick is the guy to go to. Couldn’t have been more friendly and knowledgeable. All the equipment was state of the art and in great condition. On the last cast of the day I stuck this 10 pound trout. Between my friend and I we probably boated 30 fish easily. I will be returning next spring for sure." -Andrew C.
"Patrick is an extremely knowledgeable fisherman and outdoorsman. Our party had everything from semi-seasoned fishermen to complete beginners, and Patrick was great at teaching all of us tips and tricks for catching quality fish. As a professional/tournament fisherman, you’ll find that he’s the real deal, and not “touristy” at all like so many other guides can be." -Hunter S.
