Tradition Fishing Charters 22' BB

Tradition Fishing Charters 22’ BB will help angler make the most of all the fishing spots in Pensacola Florida. With the nearby wealth of flats, inlets, and bayous, there’s always the option of exceptional inshore fishing. It also won’t take long to get offshore and to be at one with the sea. You just need to say to our Captain Miles Howell what your dream trophy is, and he’ll do his best you catch it.

You’ll be cruising the waters of Pensacola on Blazer Bay (central console) model from 2010. The boat is 22ft long and can take on groups of 4 guests or fewer. GPS and fishfinder equipment is available. The maximum speed of the vessel is 30 knots and this is achieved with a single Yamaha engine with 225HP. When sailing the flatlands we use a wireless trolling motor.

Our customers get to be spoiled for choice when it comes to fishing locations. We cover inshore, nearshore, and offshore fisheries with the flats and reef and wreck spots. Depending on the season you can try your luck with Flounders, Cobia, and several species of Snapper, just to name some. We also offer a versatile set of options when it comes to fishing techniques ranging from light and heavy tackle, deep-sea fishing, and trolling.

Please note that our trips are catch and release only. Families with children are welcome.  Our charter covers our passengers with the Florida fishing license.  We provide all the necessary fishing equipment, lures, and live baits. Just be sure to bring your snacks and refreshments, and we’ll get you for all the rest. 

Anglers who like to mix things up will love our trips in Tradition Fishing Charters 22’BB. You pick your fishing spot and the coveted trophy and we’ll do our best to make it happen.
