Captain John Overpeck has been fishing the Atlantic Coast since he was knee high to his father who introduced him to the sport before entering kindergarten. He caught his first Yellowfin Tuna at the age of 8 and began running his father’s 28′ Chriscraft at the ripe old age of 10. Since then, John earned his USCG 100 Ton Masters License and embarked as a full-time Charter Captain upon his early retirement from a successful career as a CPA. Captain John and his crew take fishing very seriously and make it their mission to provide their charters with a fishing adventure and a memorable experience of a life time. He will bring to bear his many years and extensive tournament and offshore fishing experience in the Northeast Canyons and the Gulfstream waters off the NC coast to put you on the fish. You can also count on Captain John to provide you with an honest assessment of the fishing and sea conditions with a view to avoiding uncomfortable boat rides. Captain John fishes all year around following the fish from NJ to NC. The Captain’s focus is on catching pelagic species such as Tuna, Marlin, Mahi and Wahoo but will pursue other offshore and inshore species such as Flounder and Stripers at the request of charters. Under USCG regulations, the Jeannie D. can accommodate up to 6 passengers plus captain and crew. The safety of our passengers and crew is of paramount importance, and in this regard, the Captain asks that our passengers not bring firearms and liquor aboard. And to provide passengers with further peace of mind, the Captain is also a member of the National Association of Charterboat Operators and its random drug testing consortium.

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????

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.
