Captain Gregg Fishing Charters

Captain Gregg Fishing Charters invites you on a fishing adventure on the bountiful waters of Sarasota, Florida. Captain Gregg has been fishing professionally for over 30 years and has a wealth of knowledge of fishing in this area. He can accommodate up to five guests on his boat with four fishing and one person enjoying the boat ride.

Fishing is done aboard a 24’ Wellcraft Walkaround with a Cuddy Cabin. Powered by 300 HP Yamaha engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots, this boat is fast and reliable. It features a sink and a toilet for your convenience, a bed in the cabin, and a multimedia system for entertainment.

The vessel is equipped with the latest electronics such as a fishfinder, a GPS, and a VHF-radio;  rod holders for 12 fishing poles; a livewell, ice coolers, and two large holding tanks for the fresh catch of the day. Captain Gregg has replaced all the USCG required life jackets with new Type 1’s.

Captain Gregg can take you fishing for a variety of inshore and offshore species. If you decide to fish inshore, you can go on a four, six, and eight-hour trips where you can target Snook, Flounder, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, and other Sheepshead. If you decide to head offshore, you will have the same hourly options, and your target species will be Grouper, Snapper, Mackerel, Cobia, and more.

Captain Gregg Fishing Charters provides fishing gear that includes mostly Power Pro braids, Shakespeare rods, Penn reels, lures, live bait, and a fishing license. You’ll also have drinks for refreshment and are welcome to bring food and snacks for the day.
