Tradition Fishing Charters – 28'

Tradition Fishing Charters knows how to make the most out of the Red Snapper season. Whether you’re a novice or a seasonal angler, you’ll get your share of this prestigious delicacy. Based in Pensacola, the crew has several boats and captains with different types of trips. Visit Capt. Miles’ profile to see his other vessels and the different trips offered.

Start your day on the federally permitted 28’ Contender that welcomes up to 6 guests. This center console is powered by twin 155 HP Yamaha engines and can glide quickly and safely to the best fishing spots. She’s also equipped with the latest navigational electronics, a live bait tank, a bluetooth system, and a cooler. Meaning, you’ve got everything you need for a great day of fishing already set up.

The star of the show is, of course, Red Snapper. You can go after them anytime between June and the end of July. But this isn’t the only trophy you can get on these trips. You can also land Cobia, Grouper, Amberjack, Spanish Mackerel, Vermillion Snapper, and more. These trips are for those looking for a bigger catch and don’t mind a tough fight.

Trips include rods, reels, tackle, ice, live bait, and lures to make sure you’re prepared for a catch. You’ll be spending most of the time deep sea fishing or bottom fishing as it’s called on the Gulf. The captain will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home for lunch or dinner.

Tradition Fishing Charters is here to provide an exciting and memorable day for everyone on board, regardless of your fishing skill. Join and see why so many people come for Red Snapper season each year!

Tradition Fishing Charters was started out of a lifelong passion for deep sea and inshore fishing by Captain Miles Howell. Capt. Miles started fishing at a very young age, competing and winning in local tournaments. He then started working as a deck hand in the local charter boat fleet while in high school. Capt. Miles quickly learned that he had a knack for showing people a good time on the water and enjoyed helping them catch fish. This was the beginning of what is now an expanding family charter fishing business. However, his biggest support are two captains who are a part of Tradition Fishing Charters together with him, providing the best services for their clients!
