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"

Pulled up on our spot and couldn't believe what we were looking at, it was a large school of Greater Amber jacks swimming just a few feet under the water. We threw an artificial mullet and started reeling it… Read Full Report →
