About Captain Ryan Ellis

The Sarasota Florida Born Fishing Captain

Captain Ryan Ellis – Sarasota Fishing Charters

I am a 3rd generation Florida outdoorsman. I was born and raised in Sarasota, Florida, a premier fishing destination for anglers all around the world. My knowledge of these waterways cannot be learned from books, maps, or the internet. It comes from countless hours on the water. I began fishing with my father before I could walk or talk. My earliest memories are of me and my dad fishing Blackburn Point out of our canoe. My passion for being on the water has only intensified over time. From fishing the blackwater snook of the creeks and estuaries to the bluewater billfish of the open ocean, I have a lifetime of knowledge that will guide you on your fishing experience. Fishing is not just a job, but a way of life. Being your guide is a way to share my love for the outdoors and give back to the environment through conservation and education.
