If you’re looking for an adventure to target the best fish Florida has to offer, then Top Of The Morning Charters is the place to come. Based out of Sebastian, you’ll have quick access to the rich waters where the Indian River flows into the Atlantic. The fishing here is world-class, so settle in for a fishing trip like never before!

Captain Trevor Hastings has been fishing the “Treasure Coast” for over a decade and is a well-known captain in the region. Sponsored by Okuma and Raymarine, he provides the latest fishing gear, and he also works with local scientists and researchers to understand more about the rare species found along the coast. He promises to do whatever he can to make sure you fall in love with the fishing here too.

You’ll fish from a 21’ Sea Hunt powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine. The boat offers exceptional versatility that allows up to 3 guests the experience of shallow and deep water fishing. Equipped with Raymarine sonar, a 6’ power pole, and a 112lb Minn Kota Ulterra trolling motor, the boat can easily anchor in any current. 

The legendary Sebastian Inlet is home to massive schools of Florida’s most sought after inshore species. Get your heart pumping by reeling in big Snook or Redfish or chasing schools of Tarpon and Jacks down the beach. Perhaps a nice relaxing day inside the river stalking mangroves lines, pitching docks, and sight casting the flats is always an option. 

During your time aboard, Capt. Trevor will look after you from start to finish, with drinks and snacks provided. At the end of your trip, he’ll also clean and fillet your catch, if it’s in season, for you to take home, so you’re good to enjoy the fruits of your labor right away!

Whether you’re looking to learn all about the magic of fishing, or you’re a pro looking for plenty of action, Top Of The Morning Charters has you covered. Come aboard and explore this productive corner of Florida and head home with plenty of fish!

He moved to Florida in 2008 and fell in love with the Treasure Coast of Florida’s incredible fishery. He’s spent years fishing the inlets and intercoastal waterways of Ft.
