Spring has sprung and you know what that means, the fishing is on fire! If you’re in the Wilmington, North Carolina area and want to get in on some deep sea fishing action, wait no more and book your charter with Jeannie D Sport Fishing today!

Offshore fishing off the coast of North Carolina is an experience unlike any other and the Spring of 2018 is no better time to do it! With the Gulf Stream only a measly 15 miles out, you’ll be fishing in one of the most explosive marine habitats in the world. Teeming with life, the Gulf Stream offers incredible catches from mahi-mahi, false albacore, bonita, king mackerel and more!

Trolling for King Mackerel is an adrenaline pumping good time. When hooked, these fish take off like a rocket, peeling off line at an incredible rate. For this reason, larger kings are referred to as smokers. Right now the king fishing is smoking! Trolling Yo-zuri lures within the 15 to 26 mile mark, which puts us in the Gulf Stream, is producing a solid kingfish bite. Hold on!

There’s nothing quite as exciting as a topwater bite and the bonita and false albacore are heavy hitters when it comes to exploding on the surface of the water. These topwater explosions often times ignite a feeding frenzy in which you can expect to have hook ups on all the lines in the water. This is an exciting time as many anglers will bring in fish after fish after fish.

Then there’s mahi. These beautifully colored green and blue fish are one of the most sought after deep sea fish in the North Carolina and Outer Banks areas. Not only are they a blast to catch with their acrobatic aerial displays once they’re hooked, but their firm, white meat is some of the best table fare around. Once you find one, there are more typically schooling around so keep your lines wet and ready and trust your captain to put you on the beat!

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!



No better fisherman

I have fished from Key West to Seward Alaska and have seen no better Bluewater  Fisherman in my time????


Extremely Knowledgable

I have had the opportunity to fish with Capt. John on several trips aboard the “Jeannie D”.  He is extremely knowledgeable in all facets of both offshore and inshore fishing and provides his guests with a truly memorable experience. Don’t Miss Out! Book a Trip Today!


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.
