Owner description: 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!

Fished recently with this outfit. They did great for us. Didn't find huge numbers of fish but some of everything, Sails, Rooster, Snook, Sea Bass, Grouper. Clean and well stocked boats, even if seating areas were a little hard on my 70-year-old behind. Guys worked hard to put us on fish.

Hands down, these guys know how to run a sucesssful business and give people an awesome experience! My husband and I have fish all around the world and this is the best charter we have ever taken. From the speedy email response to the step by step directions to the boat dock, these guys really make it easy to enjoy your trip. Prompt 7am pick up we ran about 40 minutes and were on our first of 12 Sailfish (YES, 12) within 20 minutes! Lunch was great and the drinks were ice cold. John and his 1st mate really worked together which is a true sign of a good fishing boat. We can't wait to come back and fish again soon!

We had a 3 day charter. 2 offshore and 1 inshore.
First day we fished with Capt. Jerry on a Bertram. We caught and released 4 Sailfish. Good boat, good crew.
Second day we fished inland with a Capt. Johnny fishing for Rooster Fish. Caught 3 and released. Clean boat. Comfortable and had a toilet, my wife's requirement.
Third day we fished with Capt. John and Alex on a different offshore boat. Caught and released 8 Sailfish, caught and kept 1 nice Wahoo. Greatest offshore experience my wife and I had. It was our birthday trip since we share March birthdays. We were pulling them in one after another.
We shut down early due to my wife tiring out and wanting to go in. If we stayed, I am sure we could have caught 4 or 5 more at this rate. We say no less than 10 more Sailfish jumping out the water on the way in.
The seating is not the best, the boat is a hard core fishing boat, very few comforts. If the big ice chest had a cushion on it, it would have been better.
We tipped as best we could afford due to them putting us on so many fish.
We will definitely go back and definitely fish with them again.
We posted pictures on Facebook each day and our friends are already asking for a contact to get in touch with Capt. John to book a trip.

We went out yesterday on the Stress Reeliever with Captain Mike and Jose as mate.
We got 6 sails to the boat and two BIG dorados......We called it quits because our arms gave out
Mike and Jose are experienced pros who are dedicated to giving you a great trip.
Can't wait for my next visit.
