Captain Al and his crew are amazing!!! Never had a bad trip, we always catch a lot of fish!! Very fun , friendly and laid back experience. You would be crazy not to call them . Thanks Captain Al and crew, see you again next year!
Fantastic day of fishing! Captain Al and his deckhand (Joey) made for a wonderful experience. Caught a wide variety of fish with the majority of them ending up in our freezer, very few were non-keepers. We will use Brag and Release for future trips.

Had a great trip with capt Al and Joey Aug 17th just sorry one of your outboard blew hope you got back up and running without to much trouble

We went on our fishing trip with Capt. Al and Joey and had the best time. These guys are true professionals and make the whole experience perfect. We will be back!

This was our second trip out with Captain AL. My 21 y/o son is an avid fisherman. Due to autism and mental impairment, he needs extra guidance and assistance with deep sea fishing. Captain Al and First Mate Brian were very patient with him. They helped him catch the biggest fish he has ever caught, a shark! How cool is that!? He told me that it was the best day of his life! You can't put a price on that. If you have a loved one with a disability who would like to go fishing, I highly recommend Captain AL and his mates.

My first time out deep sea fishing and loved it! Captain Al was knowledgeable, kind, with a little sarcasm and an all around great guy. Can’t wait to go out again fishing with Captain Al!
Same Green May 23,2018
Amazing experience! Al is a hoot to talk to and a great captain. Fun experience and affordable. Also, Lynn if I remember right(sorry if I have your name wrong), she was great great help with setting us up and great to talk to! They’re both amazing people. I only did 4 stars because we didn’t catch anything amazing. But it’s a 5 star experience fishing in the ocean. Anytime you fish it’s a 50/50 chance of catching something neat. I’m happy to have had the experience with my friends and the Brag and Release crew� I highly recommend them. Especially if you can handle sarcasm�
Thanks so much for putting up with us and our pukey selves

Absolutely Incredible!! Two buddies and myself took a 7 hour charter on Sept. 19, found ourselves in a slew of fish. We caught 20 drum anywhere between 30-50 lbs. Capt. Al and Mike were awesome. One of the Best Looking and Clean Boats at the dock. Besides being very personable those two men have a wealth of knowledge and taught us a lot about why certain things were happening with the fish that we didn't know. Needless to say, we will be back next year for another charter!

Took two of my grandsons along with their mother out for a half day... just for the experience. My grandpa took me out fishing when I was about their age, so it was my time to do the same for the boys. The captain and first mate were fantastic. We ended up catching about 70 fish that day. It was an event they will remember the rest of their lives. Who knows... they may take their grandkids out some day... just for the experience... But I don't think they'll be so highly privileged 55 years from now to enjoy the same Captain and first mate. That may be the only negative.

Today my Finance and myself went out for a 3/4 day with Caption Al and First Mate Mike. We had a great time seeing Dolphins. We had the opportunity to catch sharks, octopus, black sea bass, vermillion snapper, flouder, and many other types of fish. Our day started foggy and with slow fishing however we kept moving until we found the fish. We had a great experience with this guys and if we come back to this area we will be coming back to these two. Would highly recommended to anyone.

The five guys had a great afternoon with Capt'n Al and Marcello. The 13 and 15 year olds wanted to catch shark so the Capt'n moved and put us on sharp nose sharks like nothin' I've seen before. The youngest was a little sea sick and the crew took great care of him.
7/31/2015 Scott Prince firstname.lastname@example.org
Went fishing today with Capt. Mike and first mate Austin. We had a great time and caught our limit. Both Mike and Austin were very knowledgeable. For those less seaworthy, the 28' Grady White mangled the seas for a smooth and enjoyable trip. The half day was just right, but next time we will try the full day. As a family of six, it was a great time together and we highly recommend it to those that might get tired of the beach.
7/25/2015 Nicki Dyer Chrisandnicki@woh.rr.com
We booked a 3/4 day (7 hours) with Captain Al. Let me say first that this was not our first chartered fishing trip but it was by far the best. First Mate Mike is AWESOME! We had two adults and 3 kids ages 14, 12, and 10. The water was a bit rough due to some weather the night before and so we weren't catching as many fish as we had hoped. However Captain Al was persistent! He moved to several different spots to give us the best chance. He was amazing with my 10 year old son. He taught him how to use a baitcaster reel with kindness and patience. Mike was attentive and kind. We ended up hooking up two sharks and some black seabass. Because it took longer than expected to start reeling them in, Captain Al stayed out longer just so we could get fish! My kids were ecstatic!! Even though seasickness plagued 4 of the 5 of us, all agree that we will book again next summer! If you are considering a charter don't look any further...Captain Al & Mike are the best! We will never use another Captain!! Thanks for am AMAZING day!

Capitan al and mike are great. They make this a must do attraction if you are anywhere near the myrtle beach area. They really make you feel like the trip is about you not collecting a paycheck. After a stormy day before our trip the ocean was rough and choppy in the morning and that morning we did not get many hookups and no fish. But when other people would have let you go out with no fish they stayed until every member of my family had caught a fish. I really appreciated that he did that because my dad caught his first shark and my sister caught her first sea bass . This is a great way to spend some time on the water. Thank you captain Al and captain Mike.
7/22/2015William Dunlap email@example.com
We had an excellent half day fishing trip. I took my wife and two boys. It was their first experience deep sea fishing. The captain and crew were very accommodating to all of our needs. My youngest son had never even caught a fish before this trip. Initially we were not too picky about a particular fish so we enjoyed catching the sharks. Eventually we grew weary of shark after shark and moved on the catch some Sea Bass. We enjoyed the trip, and will return.

I highly recommend Brag and Release Charters to anyone visiting Myrtle Beach and is looking for a professional Captain and Mate to take you fishing! Capt Mike is a retired New Jersey State Trooper that is both a very courteous and knowledgeable Captain! His Mate Austin is a young man that was born and raised in the area and seems to have spent his whole life on the water! After only a little while on the boat they made us feel as if we had known them for our entire lives! We had three adults and one 7 year old in our party and they took the time to answer each and every question that was asked of them!! We took the half day trip this year but decided on the whole day Gulf Stream trip next year! That's how nice and professional these great guys are!! So if you want to go "catching" and not just "fishing" give Brag and Release Charters a call!!! You won't be disappointed!!!!
7/16/2015Brian Clevenger firstname.lastname@example.org
Went fishing on Tuesday, July 14, 2015 Captain Mike and Austin made this ocean fishing trip a great experience! Everyone caught shark, which was a first for us all! I would recommend this crew to anyone who wants a great time!

One of the beat fishing trips I've been on.I took my 13 year old daughter and my 16 year old niece and we had a blast.Caught a lot of fish and Al and his deck helper was great .definitely coming back.
6/29/2015 John Slaughter firstname.lastname@example.org
What a Great Day! Capt. Al was very professional and made sure we all had a good time. He was very attentive, especially with my two grandchildren. We caught both sea bass and shark - my grandson hooked the first two sharks. I had checked other websites but decided on Brag and Release due to the size of the boat and general info on the website - was glad I did. We were tired at the end of the day from reeling in all the fish. Capt. Al kept us entertained and we were laughing the entire trip. Best trip going. Will definitely be back! Thanks Capt. Al for an enjoyable day!
Great fishing trip, crew and captain were very knowledgeable and knew right where the fish were. Great company and an awesome time! Highly recommended.
Capt. Al and his first mate were top notch people. When he says he'll take you the extra mile he means it. I've been on several trips with different boats and this by far and above the best trip I've ever been on. We had 6 people on board and we're not crowded in the least bit. My son caught his first shark and I don't think he will quit smiling for a long time. If you have small kids capt. Al goes out of his way to make their trip memorable. Thanks again for the great trip!! Next time we will take the longer trip.
6/23/2015 Stephen Luhrman email@example.com
Captain Al and his first mate took great care of us on our charter. Their were 6 people in our party and we did a full day. We caught lots of fish and the captain knew right where to take us to keep us catching fish. The captain and first mate did everything to make sure we had a great time. We will definitely be back and would recommend Brag and Release to everyone
6/23/2015Phillip Ballard firstname.lastname@example.org
Capt Al and the first mate are real professionals and worked hard to make our trip a memorable event. The ocean was a little rough and the temperature was hot but Capt Al got us on the fish fast and we were fishing in no time. The boat was clean and organized and would book another trip without hesitation.
6/22/2015 Robert Zushma Zushma@gmail.com
Captain Al and his first mate were great. They took 5 of us out and we caught well over 50 fish. Snappers, Grouper, Sharks, Amberjacks and more. Capt. Al knew exactly where to find the fish. The ride out took longer than expected but only because Capt. Al was cautious of the rough waters. Capt. Al and his first mate were extremely friendly and were very knowledgable about the area. We felt very safe on the boat and would book with Brag and release fishing charters again in a heartbeat. We left with over 40 pounds of fillets. This was by far the best deep sea fishing trip I have ever been on. I highly recommend this charter!
6/16/2015 Tyler S-oltmann email@example.com
Brag and Release is the best charter in myrtle beach ! Capt. Al really knows how to show you a good time and most importantly put you on fish all day !! Highly recommend going on this boat !!!
6/16/20Rhett Watford A_J_in_NY@yahoo.com
A big thank you to Capt Al and crew. We had a blast! Capt Al and crew were very entertaining with stories/history of the area, welcomed teaching fishing techniques and rigs. We all felt very safe on Capt Al's watch. Did I mention he put us on the fish fast? Man ol' man we were all tired from all that reeling of Snapper, Black Sea bass, Cobia, Amberjack, Dolphin, and questionable Spade's! Such a great time, hope to charter again soon! Highly recommend!

Thanks for taking us out for a flounder fishing trip today. We had an awesome day, caught fish, had lots of laughs, and had a great captain. I would highly recommend this charter. Rick
Took a 7 hr. charter with Captain Al and Joey, they are very professional and took us to the right places to catch fish. We caught a variety of fish and had a great time. It was great having fun and catching fish, plan on doing it again in 2016
5/23/2015 email@example.comEnter your messageCaptain AL took a friend and I out for a 7hr. fishing trip and it was great, we had lots of fun. He provided everything we needed and coached us on what to do as far as catching fish. Caught a variety of fish .Certainly looking forward to doing another trip with Captain AL in 2016. Had a great experience.
5/21/2015Bill D firstname.lastname@example.org
A friend and I took a one day fishing trip with Captain Al. Caught lots of fish including several varieties. We went out 40 miles. Great fun and a great trip. Captain Al is very professional but also lots of fun. I plan to do it again next year.
5/21/2015Ben Weber email@example.com
Went out with Capt. Al wanting to do a back waters trip, fortunately for us the ocean was flat and we had the chance to take the small boat out to deeper waters. We had a blast catching sea bass and sharks, we even got a surprise cobia! it was a great time and I will definitely fish with him again next time I'm in the area!
4/18/2015Michael Brown firstname.lastname@example.org
Captian Al, U.S.C.G Master...Thanks for the great time really was one of the best experiences as far as deep sea fishing goes, put us on the fish and the fun fighting sharks...deff would recommend Cap Al on your next fishing trip !Thanks again cap Al and deck hand for the great time and batting our hooks!! Can't wait to come back see you next time!

6 guys on a fgolfing trip took a day out for a half-day fishing. Went out about ten miles, changed position 4 or five times. Caught a variety of small fish, and about 11 shark in the 4 foot size range. Kept 6, took them back to the hotel, cooked them up for 19 people in our party, with salad and potatoes. A feast! Delicious meal. Friendly boat, helpful first mate (Thanks Jerry!) and we'll be back next year for a full day to go out 40 miles for bigger prey and more fun! Thanks again!
Captain AL and his first mate Jerry were great. Six of us went on the half day fishing trip October 1st and wow was it fun. We caught sea bass, flounder, grunt, sharks and even an Octopus. We also hooked a large barricuda that breached and breached. Boat is very nice and rides the waves smoothly. Those two 300 hp outboards get you there fast. We go to Myrtle every year and next year we are booking the full day trip.

My group had a great time fishing with Cpt. Al and his First Mate Jerry! I would highly recommend this charter for locals and tourists alike. Great memories were made
6/25/2014 R Green Robbiegreen1@gmail.com
Captain Al took 4 of us out on 6/24/14 and we had a great time. He toile care of providing all the equipment, bait, and anything else we may need. He took us to 3 different spots and we hit fish at every stop. Lots of fishing and hardly no waiting or hoping for a bite. He did a great job patiently teaching and helping one on our trip that had never fished before. Lots of fun! I would definitely recommend booking a trip!
6/23/2014 TIMOTHY COXY firstname.lastname@example.org
What can i say,,, that was a great time on your boat (06/17/14) . We caught fish the whole time we were out and couldn't ask for better people. Captain Al and Joey took great care of us and made sure we caught a lot of fish. We will definitely be back!!! thanks again... Tim,Timmy,Nick,John,Nathan and Jordan
6/21/2014Heather Madison Hdmadi0@uky.edu
My husband and I took our 2 kids out with Captain Al and had a blast. The kids caught shark and sea bass and enjoyed every minute of it. We will definitely book another trip with Captain Al!
6/19/2014Nathan Penn email@example.com
Deep sea fishing has been a life long dream of mine. We went out with captain Al and joey this week while on vacation. I could not have asked for a better time. He got us on the fish and all six of us had the day of a lifetime. We caught fish like they were Going out of style. We came back with some keepers, but more importantly we came back with memories that will stick with us forever. I honestly have never had more fun and captain Al made the whole experience possible. I will never forget this day as long as I live and it will always be special to me. We always used to fish the inter coastal water ways and we would catch small fish few and far between. When we started reeling in the fish out there it was like nothing else I had ever done. I highly recommend shelling out the extra cash for a once in a lifetime experience. Except in my case it will be an annual tradition. If you don't at least give captain Al a shot then your taking a chance of missing out on a great opportunity. Can't thank you enough Captain Al and Joey! You really made our vacation!
6/18/2014 Nicholas Cox Nac81@pitt.edu
Highly recommended. Captain Al and Joe were great and put us on the fish. Well worth the money. We will definitely be back again.
6/17/2014 Russ McElrath firstname.lastname@example.org
Captain Al provided one of the most enjoyable days I've had. went out 47 miles, caught at least fifty fish, including 30 legal size sea bass. Now I can check this off of my bucket list. Thanks Al.
6/16/2014 John Penn email@example.com
Our family has been coming to Myrtle Beach since 2001 and We have always talked about taking a fishing charter and this year we finally booked on Brag & Release. It was a day we will never forget! Captain Al found us fish all day long and him and his mate Joey were like part of the family. We caught so many fish we couldn't keep track of them. We will be back on Brag & Release next year!
6/15/2014Jordan Engle Engle304@gmail.com
Had a great time, caught a boat load of fish. Well worth the money and it will for now on be a family tradition when we vacation down here. Couldn't ask for a better captain or help. Highly recommend taking this charter.
6/14/2014Russ McElrath firstname.lastname@example.org
Was definitely one of the most enjoyable days of my life. Captain Al brought us to the fish, all we had to do was get them in the boat. Now I can check this off my bucket list. Thanks Al.

Capt Al took 6 of us out on June 11. It was truly a great experience. We caught our limit of sea bass and also caught snapper and trigger fish . The highlight of the day was watching one of our guys reeling in a monster sea bass when it was suddenly devoured by a large barracuda! I would recommend Capt Al to everyone looking for a great day on the water.
5/29/14Starke Farley firstname.lastname@example.org
Captain Al took three of us out on 5/28/14 for a 12 hour trip. The seas were rough, but he was still able to put us onto the fish. We started with a Mahi, then trolled towards some bottom fishing where we caught two Bonita on the way. When the dolphins showed up we started to bottom fish, and caught Black Sea Bass, Trigger fish, and Sharks. We had a great time and the boat was very comfortable even in the 4'-6' swells. We will be back next year for another trip and definitely for another Gulf Stream trip with Captain Al
4/11/2014 Bruce Shindorf email@example.com
Best fishing trip ever!!! My highlight was watching my 13 year old daughter catch, land and get to handle a shark!!! She is still bragging. Capt. Al and crew were first rate and made us feel right at home from start to finish. Best fishing trip I've had ever.
3/28/2014 Elizabeth Carter firstname.lastname@example.org
Fantastic trip with Captain Al! My husband, 17 year old son, and I had a blast fishing, talking, and laughing with the captain. He's very patient, knowledgeable, and funny. The highlight of the trip was when my son and I both hooked the same shark! Very cool. We definitely recommend Capt. Al for a great charter fishing trip!
2/13/2014Rich.email@example.comEnter your messageCaptain Al does an awesome job! I have been out with him many times and each time has been better than the last. We have caught so many different species of fish. We even saw a bottlenose dolphin performance on the way back to the dock. There were so many of them jumping I thought one was going to land in the boat!! We will be going fishing again this year my friend. Looking forward to another trip this year....
8/23/2013 Mike Sutton firstname.lastname@example.org
We had a blast with Cpt Al. He worked super hard to make sure we all had fun. He is a great guy as well, keeping us laughing the entire time. Very informative about the location and species we would encounter. I would recommend him if you are a beginner looking for some great fishing or a seasoned fisherman wanting to expand your horizons. Great trip!!!
8/17/2013 Cameron Hampton email@example.com
I took my son and little brother on a charter with Captain Al. Our trip was great. Al was very nice, professional, and timely. He made the trip comfortable and fun for all of us. We were catching fish as fast as we could get the poles out! We were even catching 2 at a time!!! Would recommend trip to anybody wanting a great day if fishing. Also First Mate Joey was great. He helped my son and brother all day with baiting and taking fish off. Good job guys.... we will be returning on our next vacation. And for you first timers don't forget the Dramamine "just ask my son Tristen" lol Lots of fun and lots of fish Thanks Captain Al, Cameron
Great Experience! Low key, good laughs and caught a bunch of fish. Perfect start for my two teenage son's first trip. Captain Al and mate Joey were great with them. Looking forward to more trips.
8/5/2013 Carl Stepp firstname.lastname@example.org

This was our first private charter and let me just say what a great experience our family had we caught tons of fish not to mention one very large great Amber jack which I will say that Capt Al was by my side the entire time while I was trying to bring this fish in. He knew exactly where to take us to catch what we wanted and we were reeling more than sitting. If your looking for a great charter and want to catch fish book on Brag and Release, we will be back year after year. Thanks Al for the wonderful experience for our family!
If your looking for a fishing trip of a lifetime try brag and release charter. I have taken a few trips out but never had the experience that captain Al and his crew had to offer.We caught tons of fish and a lot of different kind.He and his crew go out of their way to make u feel right at home.It was the best fishing trip I've ever been on.Even though I didn't land it i hooked the biggest fish I've ever hooked,almost took every bit of line but still the fight was a hell of a experience.Every time I come back I will definitely be fishing with captain Al and his crew.If your worried about trusting a good charter choose brag and release and you won't go wrong.I am defiantly looking forward to next year.Thanks captain Al and crew for the best damn fishing trip anybody could ask for and I'm looking forward to go out next year.
6/23/2013 Jessica Todd firstname.lastname@example.org
Captain Al is a fantastic captain and host! He makes you feel right at home and goes out of his way to make you comfortable. His boat is very clean and roomy and for the ladies (and shy men) he has a clean bathroom down below deck. He made sure we had a fantastic trip and we will definitely be planning another trip with him!

We were in Myrtle Beach on vacation and looking for a fishing charter,called around and went with brag and release fishing charters. at the end of the day I couldn't of been more pleased, the captain put us on the fish and treated us like we were friends for years, I give this captain AAAAA+ and will go again next time on vacation.
Josh ZYour firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for the trip captain Al! We went out about 50-60 miles offshore and caught between 120-150 fish. Best charter I have ever been on! See you soon captain Al!

Captain Al took three couples on a cruise down the Intercoastal Waterway today to a nice restaurant and let me say, if you are a local or visiting, it is a "must do". The boat has much room and excellent seating. The boat has a restroom down below so all the ladies liked that access. Thanks Captain for the hospitality.
