Braggin Rights Charters operates out of Atlantic Beach, NC, offering a range of awesome trips fishing as far out as the Gulf Stream for a range of different species. Captain John Foss is a North Carolina native who started running charters after a long career in the Marines and he runs his charters with the same pride and enthusiasm with which he served his country.
‘Braggin’ Rights’ is a 53’ Jim Smith cruiser, powered by twin Cummins 450s up to an impressive cruising speed of 27 knots – amazing, considering her size. The vessel was lovingly restored in 2015 and now features a clean, air-conditioned interior with an enclosed head and plenty of space to kick back and relax on the long journey out to the Gulf Stream.
In order to target a list of species ranging from Bluefish to Bluefin, you will need a huge variety of equipment and a lot of space to store it all. Luckily, the Braggin’ Rights has both. She is equipped with GPS, fishfinder, outriggers, and a fighting chair, letting you take on even the fiercest of blue water beasts with confidence.
The vessel also boasts a great range of fishing tackle, with various weight ranges to match the different species you will be targeting. You will be fishing with either cut bait or lures, whatever works best for your chosen target species.
So whether you want to spend a morning battling slammer Blues and Smoker Mackerel nearshore, or travel some 60 miles to battle huge Blue and White Marlin, Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna, Sailfish and more, you can rely on Capt. John and his incredible vessel to get you on that fish of a lifetime.
