Many customers like to know about the Captain and how he came to have such knowledge about fishing.
Captain Neal Goodrich was born 8 miles from Oak Hill in a three story building that served for a hospital at the time.
His family has a rich heritage; settling in the area in the 1800's and remaining here to work the land and the sea. Throughout
the years they worked in orange groves and on the river catching fish and eventually opening a wholesale/retail seafood
market that operated internationally.
Captain Neal has been operating a boat since he was nine years old. Since that time he has never wanted anything more
than to work on the river. In the years since then he has learned every nook and cranny of the area and knows the habitat
and feeding habits of every species of fish in the area.
Many stories have been published in the local newspapers about him and his family and he has been featured on one of
Larry Csonka's fishing show.
