American Owner/Captain John will make sure all your needs are met on this 32 foot Ocean Master boat aptly named Stress Reeliever. We fish for all species found in this area, but specialize in Pacific Sailfish and Marlin. We offer all the newest in technology and gear on the boat, and have a complete set of Penn International Reels to get your big fish to the boat! Our electronics include all high end Furuno components, and we have a 2010 Cummins Diesel pushing us out to where the fish are!

We've fished all over the world, and this was the best experience we've ever had! We caught trophy-size Dorado, Tuna and saw a ton of dolphins and sailfish jumping. Great time with Junior and Pepe! Look no further for your fishing charter!!

My wife and I booked a full day offshore where we fished with Tony and David. We trolled for seven hours, and we didn't have one bite. I've grown up fishing and understand sometimes they just don't bite. The captain knew what he was doing,...More

Fished 3 days and all 3 days were great. Captain John found the fish and knew how to catch them. These guys came highly recommended and we highly recommend them. Great trip. We will be back.

Dang. Our inshore trips mainly target trophy roosterfish, and then we do deep drop trips, which are a different trip, which target grouper tile fish and snapper. When we do deep drop trips, we go pick up fresh squid or shrimp and then travel out...More
