Capt. Neal Goodrich – Fishing Frenzy

Capt. Neal Goodrich – Fishing Frenzy will show you the time of your life on the waters of Oak Hill! Capt. Neal is a descendant of four generations of fishermen. He has lived near and fished on the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon since he was 9, when he lived in the small village of Oak Hill.

He has made it his business to know where every sandbar, hole, ditch, and slue is so he can be better prepared to make your day more productive. He is a friend to the pelican, the dolphin, the manatee, and the turtle, because you never know where your next hot tip is going to come from.

Fishing aboard a recently restored 19’ Polar flats boat powered by a brand new 90 HP Suzuki engine, Capt. Neal has the speed to get you to the fish. The boat can accommodate up to 4 anglers. It is equipped with everything you need for an inshore fishing trip, including a fishfinder, an icebox, and a live bait tank.

When you book Captain Neal’s boat for a trip you don’t have to worry about someone cutting in on your fun because the boat trip is dedicated to you, and only your party is on board. Children are always welcome on the Captain’s boat and will have the time of their lives.

Whether you want to fish for Redfish, Snook, and Speckled Trout, or larger species such as Black Drum, Barracuda, and Tarpon, Capt. Neal has the experience needed to put you on the fish. He uses a variety of fishing techniques on his trips, including spinning, popping, and jigging. You’ll use both live bait and lures depending on your preference and the target species.

Join Capt. Neal Goodrich – Fishing Frenzy and have a fishing adventure of a lifetime under the Florida sun!

I am historically from a fishing family. We have been fishing these waters for 4 generations. My great great grandparents lived on the islands. The mosquito lagoon is a beautiful place to fish and right now the trout bite is hot.
