Melbourne, FL, United States

Come enjoy a day on the water, exploring Melbourne’s incredible inshore fishing opportunities! Located along the Indian River, this fishery is home to some world-famous species – how does chasing Snook, Tarpon, and Redfish sound? Hop aboard Local Waters charters and come experience this for yourself with Captain Jeffrey Trafton.

Like the name of his charter shows, Capt. Jeffrey grew up in this area and been fishing these waters his whole life. No matter when you visit, he’ll know exactly what’s biting and where to take you for a productive day and get that fish on the end of your line! Thanks to his patience and enthusiasm Capt. Jeffrey is the perfect teacher for less-experienced anglers, too.

You’ll be casting your line from your captain’s 18’ Beavertail Skiffs boat, perfectly built to cruise the inshore flats, mangroves, and shallow grassy waters that Melbourne is home to. She can accommodate up to 2 guests, which means you’ll get plenty of attention and support from your captain. On board, you’ll find top-quality navigational and safety gear.

Local Waters specializes in light tackle fishing, and is also capable of accommodating fly fishing clients. Just be aware that only one angler can fly fish at a time. You’ll be aided in these fishing methods by your vessel’s poling platform, which is is great for sight fishing, as well as her i-Pilot trolling motor. This means you can follow your target fish without scaring them away!

Depending on the amount of time you spend on the water and when you decide to visit, your potential catches will be tasty Redfish, hard-fighting Snook, Spotted Seatrout, and that mighty "Silver King," the Tarpon. Experienced anglers will enjoy the thrill of hooking prestigious fish, whereas newbies will get the perfect introduction to inshore fishing.

All of the necessary tackle and licensing is included, along with a cooler, ice, and water. Hop aboard Local Waters, and get ready for a Floridian fishing adventure you won’t forget!
