Captain
Jerry Varner

Member since December 2021 Cape Vincent, United States
Background
Captain Jerry was farm-raised, he joined the Marines in 1970, and has then driven tractor-trailers for 40 years. He started fishing in the Cape Vincent area in 1988 and got his first charter license in 1997. Captain Jerry started chartering because he was catching fish and several people wanted him to take them fishing.
Techniques
Captain Jerry trolls and drift fishes if casting for bass. His Starcraft Fishmaster was built for this style of fishing. If you want, on this charter you can get to steer the boat and help set out lines, giving you the opportunity to learn different fishing methods. Captain Jerry will tell you why and what he is doing, giving you a chance to learn to catch fish if you have your own boat. Sorry, NO CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE.
