Knowledgeable Captain

I have fished with Captain John on the Jeannie D for years and if the fish are there, he will find them. He is the most knowledgeable captain I’ve ever fished with. Whether fishing for Stripers, Mahi-Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Bigeyes, Giant Bluefin, or Marlin Captain John and the Jeannie D have delivered. The Jeannie D is comfortable, roomy and catches fish. Looking forward to my next trip!

Captain John is in a class of his own.

From the Canyons off New Jersey to the Gulf Stream of the Outer Banks, the  “ Jeannie D “ is no stranger to the fleet.  The boat is outfitted with the latest in electronic navigation, sonar, radar, temperature gauges etc.  she’s a mean fishing machine owned and operated by Captain John Overpeck with over 25 years of experience. The East Coast has its fair share of charter captains, each with their own unique style of fishing.  In my experience Captain John is in a class of his own. What separates Captain John from most charter captains are his intimate knowledge of local and southern waters / charts, his USCG Credentials ( 150 ton Master Captain ), diverse styles of fishing, instinct and pure love of the sport. As a Mate and Captain I’d like to personally thank Captain John for taking the extra time to teach me the many techniques of Giant Bluefin Tuna fishing, tournament fishing and routine boat maintenance.  Each and every trip on the “ Jeannie D “ I learned a new skill, from knot tying to trolling patterns.  I highly recommend Captain John and the “ Jeannie D “ as your 1st choice when planning your next Fishing adventure.  Thank you captain for the opportunity of a lifetime.  It may have been just another beautiful day on the water for you but for me, it was the greatest opportunity a young Mate could ask for.
