Welcome Aboard The Miss Mary!
What’s New for 2013?
Mercury Marine® 2013 Offshore Pro Fishing Team
We have partnered with Mercury Marine and we will be fishing the SKA District 9 tournament trail this year. The Mercury Tournament Trail® is going to be exciting for us and we look forward to representing them.
Thanks to Mercury Marine, we repowered The Miss Mary with brand new Optimax® 225 engines. We replaced the analog instruments with SmartCraft® gages and engine performance monitoring system.
We have replaced the seat cushions and installed an electric flush head. We have replaced the hydraulic steering system will be starting the season with brand new Penn Reels.
We will be teaching the Oak Island Recreation Center's WAIT program again this year. WAIT stands for Women Anglers In Training. This two day course includes one day in class and the second day fishing. Participants have their choice of surf, pier or boat fishing with local captains including Captain Michael. This program has been a great success and is a blast to teach. We are very proud to be part of this program and look forward to it every spring.
Last year, in addition to fishing, we had several scenic cruises for the graduating seniors and a “ladies only" full day offshore fishing trip. If you're searching for a fishing charter on Oak Island, you've come to the right place. We're looking forward to being a part of your vacation. We can customize your trip to be whatever you want it to be.
Our Fishing Guide Service has been so successful in the past few years that we decided to continue this service in 2013. If you’ve been looking for a way to learn how to catch more fish with what you have, this is for you. Our guide service teaches you how to catch more fish using your boat and your rod and reels. We’ll teach you how to save money tying your own rigs, how to properly troll for Kings, Spanish, Blues, or whatever you would like to catch. We don’t tell you what you're doing wrong, instead we teach the right way. We charge only $25 per hour, with a four hour minimum.
We have added boater training to our range of services offered. We can teach you everything from loading and unloading your boat on the trailer to navigating the waterway to understanding what the signs and buoys mean. We spend time on the correct way to dock your boat. We practice backing in and out, docking in tight situations, and proper dock line knots. We teach to correct use of GPS units and fish finder operation. The most important thing that we teach is boater safety and how to handle challenging situations. We only charge $25/hr with a 4 hour minimum.
We have teamed up with several local homeowners to offer special rates for week and weekend trips to Oak Island. We have a fully furnished and nicely appointed three-bedroom home on the island only a short distance from the beach for $125/night with a two night minimum stay and a cleaning fee. In addition, we partner with several homeowners on Bald Head Island. These rates are only available if you have booked a fishing trip with us. Please mention when you book your charter that you need information on accommodations, and we'll be happy to put you in touch with the owners of these very nice homes.
We have also joined with several local businesses to promote great customer service. See our new "Partners" page for more information on Mercury Marine, A Clean Break, Marine Mart, TC Marine and Fiberglass, Polar Products, Long Bay Boat Works, Southport Canvas and Doug Oakley, licensed Real Estate Broker.
Your Captain, Michael Brazil, is a U.S. Coast Guard licensed Master Captain with a 100 ton rating. He has been fishing the North and South Carolina coast for more than fifteen years. His fishing skills were learned from older experienced captains while mating on various vessels. He has served as the First Mate on the Super Voyager II, which is part of the Voyager Fishing Fleet in Calabash, NC, and was also the Master on the Starship in Southport, NC. He previously captained The Hooker and now of course, has captained The Miss Mary for five seasons.
Captain Michael is originally from Rock Hill, SC. He graduated from Rock Hill High School in 1977. He graduated from York Technical College with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1982. He was a Quality Assurance Engineer for more than 20 years, is a NC commissioned notary public, and a Certified Mercury Marine technician.
He seems to like his current office view much better than the inside of a factory. Whether bottom fishing for grouper and snapper, trolling for King Mackerel and Mahi-Mahi or just Dolphin sightseeing, he loves fishing and being on the water.
We are located in Oak Island, North Carolina, and can provide pick-up from docks on Oak Island, Holden Beach, Southport and Bald Head Island. We offer full day, half day and three-quarter day private charter fishing, as well as shark trips.
We are a family-oriented business and we'll make sure your fishing trip will be an experience to remember. Best of all, we are AFFORDABLE Fishing Charters.
