Perfectly situated where the prolific Banana and Indian Rivers meet, and with St. Johns River located a short journey eastwards, it’s no surprise that Melbourne, FL fishing charters are plentiful and varied! This city is home to pristine beaches, family-friendly activities, and a whole host of fresh and saltwater angling opportunities suitable for visitors of all skill levels.
 
If it’s freshwater fishing you’re craving, Melbourne offers access to St. Johns River’s “Stick Marsh.” This bountiful fishery is packed full of Largemouth Bass, with many reaching trophy sizes! In addition, Crappie, Bluegill, and several Catfish species can all be hooked here. It’s the perfect place to take your kids on a half day Panfishing adventure, whereas a full day is suitable for anglers who want a Bass bonanza. Insider tip – evening trips are especially plentiful!
 
Saltwater fishing more your thing? Take a half day trip along the shorelines of the Banana or Indian Rivers, and some charter captains will even combine a visit to both locations on longer trips. Species such as Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Snook, and Black Drum are all biting hard, with “Bull Reds” commonly hooked. 
 
Offshore fishing isn’t off the menu in Melbourne, either. Head to nearby Port Canaveral, where an extended full day trip will allow you to battle big beasts such as Mahi Mahi and Sailfish. Closer to shore, Amberjack, Cobia, and King Mackerel can be hooked.
 
There are charters dotted all around Melbourne, with the banks of the Indian and Banana Rivers being especially popular. Simply hop aboard and get ready to cast your line on the adventure of your choice!
 

Rules & Regulations

All anglers age 16 and above need a valid license to explore these waters. Fishing alongside a saltwater charter captain? Your license will be covered for you. If you’re exploring the St. Johns River, you’ll need to purchase a freshwater fishing license. Some species are subject to seasonal regulations, and your captain will be able to inform you of these.

Fishing is a hard thing to review. As for the fish I give them zero stars, but capital kyler was great. We did catch a few fish and we enjoyed our time on the water. Kyler made sure we were baited up and took a lot of time with my 11yr old helping him cast and getting it in the right spot. I guess that’s why they call it fishing and not catching. I would definitely go out with captain kyler agian.

Kyler was extremely efficient, professional, and knowledgeable of the area. He got us on some tarpon within 45 minutes of hopping on the boat. We completed an inshore slam and will definitely be booking with Kyler again soon! If you’re looking for a great day with an experienced angler, this is your guy.
