We wanted to fish and had no reservations any where. The hotel we were staying suggested the Abbott's and booked it for us. We couldn't have been more pleased. We fished with Ryan who is an energetic, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable young man. He took us to several different spots in the bay. We caught Pompano, Grouper, Red Fish, Jack Fish,... More

I was told it was a catamaran and I was surprised to see this dual hull boat with no options for sailing. But, it held us all with plenty of room and was a lot of fun. Captain is fun, friendly and made the trip a great time. I highly recommend him if you are in the area and even... More

We had the privilege of fishing with Captain Ryan last week. On our first scheduled day there was some weather that prevented going out. Ryan was beyond accommodating in rescheduling for the very next day. He was very cognizant of what everyone wanted to do and see. My wife and I brought our 3 daughters and Ryan made certain everyone... More

This is our second year using Captain Greg. He was just as wonderful this year!!! He is so patient and great with kids. When we planned our trip to Florida this year, the first thing my kids requested to do was fish with Captain Greg. Captain Greg did his best to find minnows to catch for bait, per our request....

This was 3rd time with Captain Greg and as usual had a great day! The fish were making it difficult but Captain Greg will not quit! Finally found the spot caught pompano, trout, and more! Pompano is in the oven! We also got to see tons of dolphins, a bird sanctuary and lots of wildlife. We highly recommend Captain Greg... More

Went out with Captain Greg on a beautiful October morning. My niece who has never caught a fish in her life, caught a large Bonita, snapper, Spanish mackerel, grouper. She did great thanks to Captain Greg's instruction and help. I caught a 15 pound Bonita and more...great day. Highly recommend Abbot's Family Charters! We have been going on his boat... More

Just spent the morning with Captain Greg and had a great time! Caught 2 small sharks (never expected that) and some blue fish, trout, and snapper. Captain Greg is a great guy and determined to have you catch fish for dinner. Lots of laughs and just a great way to spend a morning on Longboat Key! HIGHLY recommend!

I treated my family, which was visiting from New Jersey, to a half day of fishing with Ryan. We had the best time! Caught lots of fish and took 6 home to cook. Ryan was knowledgeable, fun, and everyone had a ball! I will definitely call Ryan as soon as I get back to Longboat Key!
