Inside an 18.5-foot Maverick Master Angler, Captain Neff and his passengers travel through local river systems and into the Atlantic Ocean, passing by sandbars and schools of deep-fried popcorn shrimp. Adept at fly, light tackle, and heavy tackle, the captain helps fishers reel in inshore and offshore species such as barracuda and tarpon. He also leads scenic walks down Martin County's beaches, pausing to cast lines for snook and other fish.
