Abbott's Family Charters – 21'

Explore Sarasota’s waters with the Tarpon man on Abbott’s Family Charters! Captain Greg’s son, Ryan, has been fishing these waters since he was a kid and there’s nothing he loves more than chasing the mighty Silver King! This isn’t a one-act show though, you’ll be going after a variety of Floridian inshore and nearshore species.

You’ll be casting off of Capt. Ryan’s 21’ Mako center console, powered by a 150 HP Honda engine. She’s the perfect fit for up to 4 anglers who want to be able to fish at the same time. Your bait will stay fresh between catches in the live well and there’s an icebox on board for drinks and snacks.

Sarasota’s waters are home to a variety of fish species year-round. You’ll come across the likes of Redfish, Snook, Sheepshead, and Mackerel at any given time of the year. If you’re in town between May and August, this is your chance to go after Tarpon. These ancient fish put up a mighty fight and are the epitome of Florida fishing! Fly fishing can be accommodated, provided you bring your own equipment.

Everything you need for a productive day out on the water, including rods, reels, and tackle, will be waiting for you on board. Just bring sunscreen, snacks, and refreshments! Bottled water will be provided by Capt. Ryan. Head out for a day of angling fun in the Sarasota sunshine with Abbott’s Family Charters!

Captain Greg Abbott is a local angler who's been fishing these waters for over 20 years. When he was in his 30's he made a bold career move. He quit his job, moved to Sarasota, and decide to start his charter business. He had no idea where he was going to live, or how he was going to get by, he just knew that it was time to pursue the dream he'd had since he was 8 years old. Spoiler alert: It worked out! Now he and his son both run successful charters year-round. He considers the best part of his job to be making new friends from all over the world every single day. Come down to Sarasota and make some memories with Capt. Greg and Abbott Family Charters!
