Brag and Release - 28 Fantasea Lady

Even Keel Marina 3993 Business…
Murrells Inlet SC, United States

Brag and Release Fishing Charters operate the most beautiful-and equally beautifully named-boat in Murrells Inlet - Fantasea Lady. They will take you on an unforgettable fishing adventure and show you exactly why Murrells Inlet carries the nickname “The Seafood Capital of South Carolina”. You can fish for the super delicious Flounder and Black Seabass, or target a big game fish that puts up a good fight such as a Blue Marlin or a mighty Bull Shark.

The fishing is absolutely exquisite as the ecosystem of Murrells Inlet allows a year-round suitable climate for all kinds of fish. You can fish nearshore or the reefs for Barracuda, Cobia, Vermillion Snapper and Spanish Mackerel, or you can ride into the offshore waters with Wahoo, Sailfish, and Mahi Mahi on your target list. Either way, you will have great fun and learn a lot from the crew.

Brag and Release is run by captains Al and Mike, and their team of hardworking and professional mates. The mates work for a tip so bring along an extra 20% of your trip’s price in cash to tip them. All your needs will be taken care of by the crew who will provide all the fishing gear including rods, reels, tackle, live and artificial baits, and a fishing license. They will also clean and fillet your catch, and give you discount coupons for dinner at either Wahoo’s Fish House or Bovine’s restaurant where you can eat your freshly prepared catch!

The fishing will be done aboard the Fantasea Lady, which is a 28 foot Grady White boat with a full cabin, a private bathroom, all USCG up to date electronics, and safety equipment. The Captain of this vessel has over 44 years of experience on the water and has a USCG Master license.

About the Captain

Member since December 2014
​​My dad first got me onto fishing around the age of 9. When I first stepped on a boat and held a fishing rod in my hands, I knew that it was something I wanted to do. We both loved the water and boats, and so over the years we went fishing every chance we had​​​. As I got older, I bought my own boat and continued to fish as much as I could. I fished up and down the coast from Maine to Florida, mostly enjoying offshore fishing, but I have to admit that nearshore fishing can be just as fun and exciting. I decided to become a charter captain so that others can experience the joy of fishing. Whether with a group of friends, or a family, there is nothing like getting on the water and watching the smiles on everyone's faces, and creating memories for a lifetime. To this day, Brag and Release Fishing Charters continue to ​create memories for all our guests. Come fish with us, and get used to the screaming reels and tail-walking fish... because "THAT'S HOW WE TROLL"

It really is amazing what some people expect. Took 6 Oriental gentleman out on a 5 hr fishing trip, went out about 15 miles and they caught fish from the time the anchor hit bottom till the time we lifted anchor. Unfortunately there were only a few keepers. They had brought aboard a 120 quart cooler and wanted to fill it with fish. The mate baited and took the fish off every ones hook Really !!!  Can’t please everyone.
