"This was the best fishing trip Alexander and I have ever been on.
Captain Patrick put us on the big fish immediately.
Only had to change locations 2 times and each time we caught fish at each location.
Caught 9 different species of fish and the largest fish we've ever caught."

Brian B.  from Texas

"Had an opportunity to fish with several other captains over the years but Patrick is by far the best we've fished with. He worked hard to put us on fish under some "tough" weather conditions and we loaded up with nice trout. Captain Patrick knows what he's doing and goes out of his way to make sure you have a great experience.
This was our first time to fish with "Ugly Fishing" and we'll be back. HIGHLY recommend this charter."

Kieth S. from Alabama

"This is my second charter fishing trip in Mobile Bay Area. Last year was my 1st & I went with a group charter that was good (3) at best. This trip with Ugly Fishing by Captain Patrick was great. Patrick called fellow colleagues to get the most up to the minute reports where conditions were good for catching desirable fish. He moved around looking for favorable conditions. We limited out on Speckled Trout and caught two 15-20 pound Jack Crevalle's that were released. He cleaned and bagged our Speckled Trout. It was a Great Trip."

Patrick L. guest of the Grand Hotel

I have fished with some other fishing guides but Patric with Ugly Fishing has to be the most versatile fisherman there is on the Gulf Coast. Twice I booked at charter at two different locations we were vacationing at, once at lower Mobile Bay and the other time at Dauphin Island. How he can find fish to catch no matter where he is amazes me!
The other time we have been fishing with Patric was on Christmas Eve day, wind blowing, cold, but we filled the cooler with delicious white and speckled trout!
Don't think the price of the Ugly Fishing's charters are expensive. Patric works hard to make sure you have a great time and he has quite a lot of money tied up in his boat and tackle.
Patric is a humble guy but he is top-notch in my opinion. Whether you are a seasoned fisherman or a first timer, don't hesitate to give Patric a call.

Kyle R. from Alabama

"We had a great day on the water today with Captain Patric with Ugly Fishing. He was very patient, incredibly knowledgeable of the area, and knew exactly where the fish were biting! We caught our limit on Red Snapper and Speckled Trout. Almost every cast was a bite! He even took great photos and video footage of all the action that we will treasure forever! We highly recommend booking with Ugly Fishing Charters and look forward to booking again!"
 Jessica G. from Louisiana

My youngest son wanted to fish for his birthday, we wanted to fish around Mobile, and I was fortunate enough to find Captain Patric on Trip Advisor. I can't say enough about what a fantastic day we all had. The day is summed up by the biggest smile I've seen on my teenage son in the attached picture after he spent 30 minutes landing the 'big one.' Captain Patric was on time, patient and fun for my sons. He taught all of us quite a bit, and had me casting so much better by the end of the day. To top it off, he cleaned our fish at his parent's beautiful home and they fed my son's hot dogs and hamburgers (great family). A perfect ending for a bunch of hungry boys. We will definitely be fishing with Captain Patric again and I highly recommend him!

Dana S. from Louisiana

"Our family of 3 traveled from NE Alabama just to charter a day with Ugly Fishing....and Captain Patric did not disappoint...we had a great day of fishing...caught ALOT of Trout and various other fish...his fishing gear was top notch and his boat was clean and spacious to accommodate all of us...also Patric is a great guide...we are looking forward to our next fishng trip"

Lisa H. from Alabama

"We had an amazing fishing experience with captain Patric. Each stop we made led to many fish being caught and some being kept. Captain Patric is very positive, patient, and knowledgeable about saltwater fishing. He worked very hard to put us on fish. I will definitely book another trip with Ugly fishing when we visit Gulf Shores again"

Karen N. from Texas

"Great knowledge and determination. Very versatile will not only put you on fish but also think outside the box till you land fish. Best in the business in my opinion."

Larry B. from Kentucky

"Patric Garmeson is an excellent host and amazing fisherman. Patric has guided our group over 5 times and each and every trip has been fantastic. Patric knows where the bite is around the Mobile bay area and consistently puts us on our favorite, the bigger speckled trout. He is easy to work with, provides superb service to his guests and is one of the best guides and hosts we have fished with. We plan to return to Mobile for many future trips with Patric."

Greg S. from Georgia

"We had a great time fishing with Captain Patrick and will definitely go again. Extremely knowledgeable, excellent equipment and provides so many tips on fishing. Caught all we could handle and he even cleans them

Kathy R. from Alabama

"Would give Capt. Patric 10 stars if possible . Very knowledgeable, works very hard to put you on em. A genuine good guy. Reasonable rates, that when your done you can honestly feel like it was worth every penny."

Jeremy W. from Alabama

"Had a fantastic trip today with Ugly Fishing. Caught redfish, sheepshead and some of the largest speckle trout we've ever seen. Cptn. Patric was super, even when my grandson and his buddy (both 15) got lines tangled. We saw other boats struggling, but we got the fish. We HIGHLY recommend Ugly Fishing."

Bill from Brandon Ms.

"My husband, 14 year old son and I fished with Captain Patric last week and had an awesome time catching speckled trout at Dauphin Island on Mobile Bay. He was knowledgeable, helpful and definitely the friendliest captain we've ever fished with. I'm not really known for my fishing skills but love to go out with my husband and son, they were happy they got to fish non stop without helping me bait my hook or getting my fish off the line. We all had a great time and would definitely go fishing with him again!"

Karen F. from North Carolina
