Hale Ferguson impressed the Captain with his skill in landing this catch! And for this reason, we’d like to give a special recognition to Hale for landing this month’s Bragging Rights. Hale, son of John Ferguson, caught this beautiful Bull Red while fishing on the Broad River with Captain Bryan Freeman. The fish was caught on a falling tide with a piece of fresh cut Blue Fish fillet. “He did EVERYTHING the way it should’ve been done” says Bryan, “Any adult could’ve easily lost that fish, so to see Hale work that rod on his own was extremely impressive.” The group went on to catch another Bull on a piece of cut Croaker fillet.
Late last year we experimented with our first ever Reel Ladies of Brays fishing event. Well the event was such a great hit that on Tuesday we brought it back and hosted the first of two events scheduled for this year. With 2 loaded boats, including two returning anglers, Captain Bryan Freeman and Captain Jess Haynes headed out of Haulover Creek and into redfish territory. Despite not too perfect conditions, the ladies prevailed and brought home just enough for dinner. No trout were caught but plenty of redfish and 5 large bonnet heads all found their way to the boats. We look forward to hosting this again for our ladies in November.

The deed to a piece of property on Brays Island Plantation comes with so much more than just an acre of land.
All owners share 94 percent of the 5,500-acre plantation. That is what provides the space needed to pursue a range of outdoor activities from wing shooting to deer hunting to golfing and tennis.

“I never hunted marsh hens until moving to the low country” said Paul Burton, partner in Brays Island Realty. “It is great sport and a particularly good way of introducing children to the sport of wingshooting. All three of my kids have hunted and harvested birds so far this season. That is an important part of making a connection that lasts.”
For 13-year-old, Emma, marsh hen hunting with her father has fostered an appreciation for the outdoors.
