A love of the deep sea and adventure was instilled in Captain Jeff DePersia at a young age, when his charter-fishermen relatives would take him out on trips across New England waters. Captain Jeff continued to fish throughout his life, gradually gaining a reputation as one of the most successful fishers of cod and tuna on the Cape and catching the eye of reporters from the Republican Herald. Today, the US Coast Guard–licensed captain shares his fishing expertise with others, captaining fishing charters across Stellwagen Bank and surrounding waters. Upon the sturdy docks of the captain's classic 35-foot T Jason Downeast boat, Jeff and his crew encounter an abundance of water dwellers, including tuna, striped bass, and occasionally Jimmy Hoffa in his secret submarine.
