On your day out with Captain Jeremy Neff and his Mandalay Island Charters, you will always be able to find a calm place to fish in the river! 

Capt. Jeremy has been running an inshore fishing guide service since 2010. He has been fishing around the St. Lucie and Indian River Lagoon areas since he was four years old, which makes him one of the most knowledgeable charter guides in the area.

Fishing aboard his 18’ Dolphin Skiff, Capt. Jeremy offers inshore charters that can reach the skinniest of water. He generally uses live bait to target the fish, although is also a keen fly fisherman. He uses light and heavy tackle both day and night, particularly enjoying fly fishing for Snook, Trout, and other species during the night. As long as the tide is moving, the fish generally eat.

With the countless species of fish to chase, you’re bound to have a rewarding trip, especially if you end up hooking one of the many fish in the river weighing up to forty pounds. And if you decide to fish when the Tarpon are in town, you could well end up with a beast weighing up to two hundred pounds.

All the necessary gear and tackle will be provided for your charter. Your food and drinks are welcome on board along with any “lucky” rod you want to bring with you.

My grandfathers both loved to fish & instilled a love for spending time outdoors in me when I was young. Born in Dayton, OH, I was five years old, when my parents moved our family to Stuart, FL in 1981 from NJ. We lived three houses from the St. Lucie River on Pelican Dr. My oldest brother would take me down to the St. Lucie River to fish where I learned to catch Snapper & throw a cast net. I never stopped going down to the river after that. Mom would have to come get me at dark. Back then the neighbors would turn their dock lights on for you. I remember wishing & praying that I could swim & play in the river every day. My dream has come true! I have been operating a fishing guide service out of Stuart, FL since 2010. I just love for the rod to bend & enjoy teaching people how to fish while showing them the wonderful place I got to grow up in.
