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 Suzuki outboard 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 ipilot 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.

Everything will be provided, including licenses, rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Many of the customers love catching the bait more than waiting for the big ones.

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.

Happy New Year 2022
Happy New Year 2022
January 3, 2022
Well..... Here we go starting off a new year, hopefully everyone had a great holiday. The fishing has been ecstatic the last few weeks. We've caught lots of fish and broke some new personal best records to end the year. The inshore bite has been off and on in the lagoon. The bait is plentiful all throughout the river. Lots of finger mullet, pilchards, pig fish and pin fish. The fronts are messing up the bite a bit though. Some days are a little slower than others but that's fishing. We've caught some nice reds, snook, and trout along the mangrove shorelines and the spoil islands using live shrimp on popping corks and chunks of mullet. These are the areas you gotta have patience for. Lots of casting and moving if you're using artificial or just sitting and waiting if we're still fishing. Sebastian Inlet has been spectacular when everything lines up. There has been tons of action on bluefish and Spanish mackerel. A few flounder and pompano too. When the bite is on the big bull redfish are all over you. The snook have been there but like usual picky as all hell. Night has been the best for snook at the inlet the past few weeks. We also had a good tarpon bite right before new years eve right outside the inlet. Surprisingly some of the big Goliaths are still hanging out around the north jetty. You'll see them under the boat on an outgoing tide just waiting for you to hook one of those snook. Unfortunately the Goliaths haven't learned the regulations yet ?. Offshore has had some excellent fishing lately. The waters have been quite warm for this time of year. We've been catching some solid cobia hanging with the sharks and numerous amounts of snapper (mangroves, Lanes, and muttons) on our bottom fishing trips. Not only that there have been kingfish and mahi being caught in 60ft while trolling pink/white and blue/white skirts with ballyhoo.
