Captain Clarke Charters

About Us
Captain Clarke Charters is owned and operated by Jennifer Clarke. Jennifer grew up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in a family of avid trout fly fishermen and started fishing at the age of 4. She has stalked bone-fish from the flats of the Seychelles to the shores of the Yucatan. She has caught trout from the rivers of Tierra del Frego to Yellowstone National Park. In any given year she'll land Big Striped Bass from the North Shore of Massachusetts to the southern most waters of the Cheseapeake Bay, Virginia.

She came to Martha's Vineyard in 1994, and settled down in what she calls the fishing equivalent of Nirvana.

Jen learned striper fishing from the top anglers and captains on Martha's Vineyard. She earned her captains license and charters a 30-foot center console named "Femme Fatale" during the season specializing in big bass.

Among Jennifer's many tournament victories:
1997 M.V. Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby - Winner Grand Slam
1999 M.V. Striped Bass and Bluefish Derby - Derby Winner with the largest striped bass caught
2001 American Striper Association’s Mercury Tournament Trail Division 1 Champion
Winner Pier 37 Striped Bass Shootout, Falmouth, MA
Winner Nauset Marine Tournament, Falmouth, MA
Second Place Clarke’s Landing Pt., Pleasant, NJ
Fifth Place Rivercraft Marine Tournament Deltaville, VA
2001 American Striper Association’s Angler of the Year
2001 American Striper Association’s Lady Angler of the Year

Jennifer continues to guide anglers (including junior anglers) to victory in various tournaments throughout the season when she does not fish them herself.
