Sorry you feel this way.  No one has else has ever complained about our tackle. Capt. Willie and myself work very hard to keep our tackle in good shape. Hopefully you’ll give us another chance someday.

Had a great day out fishing. Me and 10 year old daughter went out with captain Willie caught several fish and had a very good time. Had a few minor problems with tackle but have never been on a fishing trip without some. Captain Willie did all he could to make our trip and my daughter’s first experience a great one. Did what he could to keep our hooks in the water as much as possible.  If back in the area will be calling Tradition Fishing charters again.  For some reason my photos won’t upload….

Willy was our captain and guide, we had requested an inshore trip after red’s , trout and flounder. Our goal was to learn the inner bay around Perdido. Willy’s knowledge of the area was excellent, the boat and gear were top rate, and we caught a variety of fish at most spots we tried.. The catch included redfish, mangroves paper, red snapper, and several other species.. A great day on the water, I highly recommend the charter for those looking for an inshore fishing trip.. Steve

We wanted to go offshore for snapper, but our first 2 choices were unavailable. Fishing Booker connected us with Tradition, and Miles accepted our trip. I booked a condo, and then I heard from Miles that the gulf would be too rough for offshore fishing. We believe that this firm’s boat is rarely able to handle the offshore conditions. While Willie was knowledgeable and very helpful, we would not book this trip again. It didn’t satisfy our desire for a specific kind of fishing, and we felt that we should have been told that upfront.

Mr Brady. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to take you and your wife fishing the other day. When I talked to your wife a couple days before the trip. I informed her that it would be too rough to go out into the gulf on our bay boat. I told her that we could have a good day inshore for trout, redfish and flounder. She responded with that would be fine and that y’all were looking forward to the trip. Capt. Willie put y’all on a great flounder bite that day and sounds like y’all had lots of action. I wish your wife would have been more clear that the only thing y’all wanted to do is go catch Red Snapper. We would have canceled the trip and tried to find you a Capt with a bigger boat that could handle the 2 to 3 foot choppy seas out of the east that day. Our clients happiness and safety is the number one priority for us.  Hopefully you’ll reconsider giving us another chance at Tradition Fishing Charters next time your on the gulf coast.
Regards.
Capt. Miles
