Captain Ed Jerome > Voted "Best of the Vineyard"
Fishing Charter Captains by Martha's Vineyard Magazine
multiple years in a row!
Martha’s Vineyard is perhaps the best fishing destination on the East
Coast and fishing onboard the 32’ Wayfarer with seasoned Captain Ed Jerome
will make it an experience to remember. Big striped bass and bluefish arrive
in mid May and stay through October. Large “doormat” fluke are best in
July and August. The “speedsters”, bonito and false albacore, heat up
in mid August and stay through October. In mid September through mid October,
the premier fishing tournament on the East Coast, the Annual Martha’s Vineyard
Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby takes place on the Vineyard and who better
to fish the tournament with than its President for more than two decades,
Captain Ed Jerome.
The Captain's Weekly Fishing Report > June 2013
June started out with lots of blues in the 10 to 12 pound range. Weather hampered the times on the water, but in-between the storms when we got out we had lots of action. Mostly blues with a few bass mixed in. By mid June, the weather was still questionable, but the bass moved in and started showing up in all of their old spots. On June 10th “Humpy” Wheeler of NASCAR fame from Charlotte, N.C. and his family had a great day catching stripers of all sizes. On May 30th and June 1st, John Marsh of Bradford, PA had a couple of great days with big blues, but missed a nice bass just prior to netting. As of today, the weather is clearing and we will be out fishing the next few days before the wind blows again.
It doesn’t matter whether you are an experienced angler or a beginner, a family or an individual; each trip is customized to meet your abilities and experience. If fishing isn’t your thing, but being on the water is, try our harbor sunset cruise in the historical Edgartown Harbor, one of the former great towns of the Whaling Era. Cruises for dinner parties, weddings and special events are always enjoyable on the Wayfarer. So, make your plans soon and come to Martha’s Vineyard for the fishing experience of a lifetime or a scenic cruise onboard the Wayfarer with Captain Ed Jerome.
