Abbott's Family Charters – 22'

Hop on board Abbott’s Family Charters for a hands-on day exploring Sarasota’s diverse fishing grounds! Captain Greg Abbott has been on the water for over 20 years and loves to show anglers of all skill levels a good time! Since this is a family business, children are also more than welcome.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 22’ Twin Vee catamaran, which can accommodate up to 6 anglers. Equipment, including rods, reels, and tackle, will be provided. The live well on board is sure to keep your bait fresh between catches. Capt. Greg will provide bottled water, but feel free to bring any other refreshments you’d like to enjoy and store them in the onboard icebox.

Anyone who’s been to Sarasota knows there’s a variety of high-quality fishing available. You’ll see Sheepshead, Redfish, and Snook roaming these waters nearly year-round. If you head down in the summer, you won’t want to miss out on the chance to go after the mighty Tarpon or tasty Red Snapper!

Capt. Greg supports a variety of fishing techniques. He’ll take you popping for Pompano, jigging for Snook, and is able to accommodate fly fishing, provided you bring your own equipment. He’s also happy to clean and fillet your catch at the end of the trip.

All you’ll need to bring is sunscreen and any snacks or refreshments you’d like to enjoy during the day. Bear in mind that Capt. Greg will provide fishing licenses for up to 4 anglers, each additional person will have to buy their own. Let Abbott’s Family Charters show you and your family what Florida fishing is all about!

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!
