Background
​​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 could 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 continues 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"
Techniques
Our style of fishing is to catch fish. We'll go the extra mile for you to catch fish, "Literally"
