Our History

Tradition Fishing Charters was started out of a lifelong passion for fishing by Captain Miles Howell. Capt. Miles started fishing with his Dad at a very young age, competing and winning in local tournaments. Miles then started working as a deck hand in the local charter 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 business.
