Family Tradition Charters
Join Family Tradition Charters to find out just how marvelous it is to fish with the 5th generation of fishermen! Raffield family has been in the business for over 120 years, so you better believe you’re in good hands.
Your guide for the day, Captain Leveral Raffield, knows how to get you to the best fisheries around and help you have a great time along the way. His faithful companion on every trip, the Makin Memories boat, justifies its beautiful name.
She is a 65’ Bonner powered by twin 700 HP Caterpillar engines that can very comfortably take a party of up to 10 anglers aboard. This is a US Coastguard certified vessel, fully equipped to get you on the fish quickly, all the while keeping you safe and sound, no matter the weather conditions.
Showcasing the top rate electronics, the Makin Memories is entirely designed for the comfort and entertainment of the guests while hitting the hottest fishing spots on St. Andrews Bay.
While we’re on the topic of the hottest bite, on your trip with Capt. Leveral, you will be going after the plethora of beautiful and tasty fish. From different kinds of Snappers, King and Spanish Mackerel on shorter trips, to Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Groupers, and Sharks on Grand Slam adventures, you’ve got a lot look forward to.
If you do decide to head out to the sea for a 2 Day Grand Slam, make sure to bring your own food and drinks, as well as everything else you might need, and let’s not forget awesome company. Onboard you’ll find fully air-conditioned sleeping and sitting area, and you’ll even have satellite TV at your disposal.
You don’t need to worry about fishing equipment, you’re completely covered when it comes to rods, reels, and tackle, just bear in mind that live bait is available for an additional charge. Kids are also welcome, the more, the marrier.

Booked this trip for my 87 yr old dad who wanted all the guys to get together, 10 of us The boat was an excellent size for all 10 of us and room for all to fish at one time if wanted. Inside cabin nice and roomy. Captain and mates very nice and helpful and on the ball with getting bait, and fish off the lines. Recommend Family Traditions to anyone.
