Jeremy Neff

Member since October 2014 Sewall's Point, United States
Background
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.
Techniques
I love to sight cast for fish with my fly rod & use live bait such as mullet & shrimp. Sometimes we can catch or buy other live bait such as Pilchards, Thread Finn Herring, Bunker, & Croaker to name a few. I also like to use lures & artificials to catch fish such as spoons, jigs, & soft plastics. Mostly, we will bottom fish under docks & around rock piles or bridge fenders. I also like to fish around seawalls. The fishing is dictated by the wind & the tide. The wind may deter us from fishing an area because it is rough, so we will seek out a calm place to fish. There is always a calm place to fish in the river. Second, moving water is critical. The fish like their food to come to them, the tide is what brings it to them. The water comes in the river twice a day. There are two high tides & two low tides. Fish like to hide in or near structure, so we will spend most of our time sending our baits into their homes when the water is moving. This is usually very productive.
