All About Our Business
Whatever Turns U On Fishing Charters is based out of Malabar, Florida, and here to offer you the fishing trip of your dreams, be it inshore, offshore, or anything in between. Captain Shane is a lifelong fisherman who will be happy to do everything in his power to get you hooked up.
Captain Shane Trottier is a local Floridian, born and raised in Melbourne, FL. He created Whatever Turns U On Fishing Charters to provide Florida's Brevard county area with the best fishing guide service around. Captain Shane has always been passionate about fishing but most of all making people happy, and what better way than to help them land Florida's most sought out game fish.
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 2 livewells for bait, epirb, and a wireless Minn Kota 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, Sheepshead 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, Snapper, Grouper, Triggerfish, Sharks, and others. Whatever you want to do, Captain Shane will help you make the most of it.
We are open for business 5 days a week Monday through Friday for charters and closed Saturday and Sunday for family time.
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 polarized sunglasses, a hat, non-spray sunscreen, and if there's a possibility of sea sickness take some Dramamine before hand.
"Even as a straight A student in school I could never figure out what I wanted to do for a living. I've had a passion for fishing my entire life and I love to make people happy. One day while I was kayak fishing with my buddy Weston, I noticed a redfish tailing right next to me . I was cast netting for bait and didn't have my rod handy, so I called Weston over and told him to throw his bait just past the fish. Almost instantly the redfish dropped down and ate his bait, "fish on!!!!". That moment hit me so hard and I knew right then and there that's what I wanted to do for a living. Soon after, I decided to get my Captain's license and do a job I love.
The company name was created from a saying my grandmother used when I was little. Whenever she would babysit me we would sit down together and watch some t.v. Since she didn't have cable we ended up watching the Home Shopping network most of the time. Every time she would laugh and say "whatever turns you on". That saying has stuck with me my entire life. My grandparent's ashes were put into the ocean through Sebastian Inlet. I know they are with me every time I go through there so I decided to name the business after my grandmother "Whatever Turns U On Fishing Charters".
I can't guarantee the catch of a lifetime or a cooler full of fish but I can promise you one thing. As your captain and fishing guide I will do everything in my power to try to make that happen".
