The Deeper Smart Sonar Pro+ is a sonar fish finder that is tied to the end of your line and cast out into the water.

Rapala is known for their quality fillet knives, and they never disappoint. This particular knife comes with a soft grip and an extremely sharp and flexible, stainless steel blade that will get the job done every time.
  7. Costa Del Mar Fantail Sunglasses: Fishing in the sun all day can wreak serious havoc on the eyes, so you’ve got to wear shades. Costa Del Mar Fantail sunglasses protect your eyes from the harmful glare off the surface of the water AND help you locate fish better than the naked eye. Built from high Polycarbonate, they are highly durable and tough enough to withstand long-term outdoor use.

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.
