Family Tradition Sportfishing was founded in 2022 by long time Buffalo fisherman Bill Quinn and Captain Richard Fairbanks. Bill had fished with Captain Fairbanks for over 20 years when he decided it was time to own his own boat and make his longtime friend and fishing guide his partner. Captain Fairbanks grew up in South Florida the son of world class fisherman Captain John Fairbanks. Captain Richard Fairbanks has traveled the seas for 35 years on many a fishing vessel honing his skills. His many catches and the stories that come with them are part of the experience you can expect aboard Freebird. Freebird is a 39 foot Yellowfin center console fully equipped with brand new, top of the line, tournament fishing equipment.
