Top Notch Adventures

#BoatOfTheMonth Top Notch Adventures Captain Aaron Highers 386-316-9874

The holidays are upon us and our next feature boat is the perfect choice if you're looking to get some holiday fishing in before the new year! Based in Port Orange, Captain Aaron Highers has fished the Ponce Inlet area his entire life and now provides Top Notch Adventures to anglers for the last 7 years. Specializing in all areas of both inshore and offshore fishing, Captain Aaron will be sure to put you on the fish no matter your choice in destination.

Top Notch Adventures has dual vessels available depending on what kind of trip you decide on! For inshore trips with lower capacity you'll enjoy a 17' Carolina Skiff flats boat, powered by a 60 HP Yahama outboard, the perfect setup for a 2 angler trip. Looking for a higher capacity & wanna head offshore? Their 24' Carolina Skiff Offshore Series, freshly repowered with brand new twin 140 HP Suzuki Outboards, can comfortably accommodate up to 6 anglers. Vessel features include: top of the line electronics, wireless trolling motor, outriggers, live well, and plenty of cooler space for your catch. As with all of our charters, all fishing equipment and licensing are provided at no additional cost.

First starting out mastering inshore fishing and working his way offshore in early adulthood, Captain Aaron knows the waters here well and has spent his life figuring out how to maximize his adventures for all who join him. Growing up he worked at Brigadoon Fish Camp, where he would run crab traps, sell bait and seafood. His career growth later in life was heavily influenced by the adage 'do what you love & you'll never work a day in your life'; and he is quick to remember his own excitement those first couple of trips. Though Captain Aaron is the first fisherman in his family, he will certainly not be the last. His devotion to teaching the trade is already readily visible in his children, who have all happily picked up the hobby themselves.

Captain Aaron insists his favorite aspect of guiding is the opportunity to help anglers get to their next respective level of experience. Whether it's first timers looking to get acquainted with the gear while they stay busy with jacks & mangroves, to the seasoned sportsman looking to one up his personal best catch. His favorite fishing days are usually those spent with friends and family, noting that fishing with people close to you is what it's all about.. 'With good company.. good things will follow!'

Offering a wide range of inshore and offshore fishing trips, Top Notch Adventures provides a unique and exciting opportunity to explore the diverse waters of Florida's east coast. Make memories that you'll treasure forever — book a trip today!
