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 used this company for a 1/2 day bay fishing tour and a full day offshore fishing. The bay fishing was nice, Captain Johnny was very helpful and patient since I am not a fisherman. We caught some roosters and needle nose and I finally got lucky enough to catch a couple snappers. The offshore trip yielded a yellow fin... More

Dang, sorry about the lost fish. Mike is the deckhand of that boat, he has worked for us for 9 years, doing about 250 trips a year, and then before that he worked for 7 years with a different busy company. He has released over 10,000 sailfish and lots of other fish as well. I did talk with the crew,... More

We booked 2 days offshore, 1 day inshore with John. The crews on all three of our boats were great, very nice and accommodating. Fishing wasn't incredible but it was good. 2 sails, 1 mahi the first day. About 15-20 fish (mixed bag of snapper, snook, sailfish, barracuda) the second day. 3 sails and 1 tuna the third day (and...

I've caught hundreds of Dolphin off the coast of South Carolina and other places but never one this size. The Captain and crew were first rate.

John's responsiveness and genuine nature definitely set him apart. He was very easy to deal with in our booking, and proactive in his communication. The crew was great during the trip, and even put in overtime to keep us catching.

My wife and I booked a full day trip with John. Our crew worked hard all day to put us on the fish. We will be back as soon as we can to fish with these guys! John, tell Junior he owes my wife a sailfish when we come back!

I've known John for years, he's always been a super nice guy to deal with and genuinely cares about his clients. I fished inshore with his top captain last, Johnny, last week and we crushed it. We finished with 5 roosters, 15 jacks, and a red snapper for dinner and missed A LOT of other bites. The boats are not... More

My husband and I went out on a calm day offshore for our first day in Costa Rica. We were wanting to catch Sailfish and Marlin. We were told the migration had been a little late this year, but to be patient when we were out on the water. A few hours had passed and no luck, but we still... More
