Whatever Turns U On Fishing Charters Llc

Whatever Turns You On Charters is based in Sebastian, FL, and is here to offer you the fishing trip of your dreams, be it inshore, offshore, or anything in between. Captain Shane Trottier is a lifelong fisherman who will be happy to do everything in his power to get you hooked up.

You will be fishing on a 22’ Sea Hunt bay boat that’s powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine and has plenty of space for up to four prospective anglers. In addition to the standard safety and navigation gear, it has a livewell for bait, and a wireless trolling motor to help with easily spooked fish.

The fishing locations will vary depending on what you want to do. A standard inshore trip will take place in the Indian River and Sebastian Inlet areas where you’ll be fishing for Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Trout, Sharks and more. Offshore trips, on the other hand, can take you anywhere up to 30 miles out to fish for the likes of Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and others. Whatever you want to do, Captain Shane will help you make the most of it.

The price of any trip includes rods, reels, and terminal tackle, as well as the necessary fishing licenses (this includes Snook stamps). Anything you catch will be cleaned after the trip for your convenience, and the captain recommends you bring along a pair of sunglasses and non-spray sunscreen.

The captain can also accommodate your stay with the Captain’s Vacation Rental house, a fully furnished private 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with a pool. Comfortably sleeps 6 people and is just minutes from the local boat ramp at Christenson’s Landing in Grant, FL. Feel free to let him know if you’re interested.

Even as a straight A student through school I could never figure out what I wanted to do for a career. I've had a passion for fishing my entire life and one day while taking some friends fishing I realized that I really enjoy putting people on fish and seeing the excitement it brought to them. I decided to get my Captains license and do a job that I love. Pictures don't show everything or the time it takes to catch some of these big fish. As your Captain/Fishing Guide I will do everything in my power to get you on that big one.
