Susquehanna Fishing Tackle

SFT Pro Staffer Jerry Sersen


Born and raised on Seneca Creek, nestled between Middle River and Gunpowder River, Jerry has a lifetime of local Upper Chesapeake Bay knowledge and fishing experience to offer through local seminars and fishing shows.  He is a retired USCG Captain and operates Reel Perfection Charters and Rod/Reel Repair.  Jerry specializes in small and largemouth bass as well as shallow water, light tackle stripers.  He loves to share the boat with children and disabled anglers whenever possible.

When Captain Jerry is not guiding, he operates Reel Perfection Reel and Rod repair; working on all size reels from trout stream ultra-lights to off-shore winches.  He is factory certified on most major brand reels.

Jerry had been tournament fishing for 35 years, competing on the Red Man circuit, WalMart BFL circuit, Anglers Choice and MD Bass Federation Nation.  His most recent trophy was being crowned the Maryland State Champion in 2008.
