Hi-Count Sportfishing

The Hi-Count is owned and operated by Jason Reese, a USCG licensed 100-ton Master.  Jason’s experienced and professional crew offers unparalleled safety and customer service.


About the Captain
Jason’s love of sportfishing started as a child.  He used to accompany his uncle while fishing from the barge in Redondo Beach, local city lakes, and as far north as Oxnard.  Jason’s recreational fishing was interrupted by his acceptance of a full baseball scholarship to U.C. Riverside.  Following a short two-year stint in professional baseball, Jason resumed a career in his second love, fishing.  He went on to try his hand at long range fishing, starting aboard the Searcher and continuing with the Shogun and the Excel.  In his seven years aboard these boats Jason has visited some extreme locales, including Clipperton Atoll four times.



About the Boat
The HI-COUNT is a custom-built 44’ Pacifica sportfisher that was designed by fishermen for fishermen!

The Hi-Count was repowered and remodeled in 2003 for optimum performance as well as comfort. She sports two Cummins, 6CTA main engines producing a silent and smooth 700-horse power. The boat has the ability to cruise home at speeds in excess of 20 knots after a long day of fighting fish in style. Relax in the comfortable salon, enjoy an ice-cold beverage and kick back while our crew filets and packages your catch.

Her beam is 15’ 6" unlike some other charter boats this makes for a giant cockpit with plenty of elbowroom to maneuver when the big ones are biting. Our bait capacity is huge with two tanks on the stern and one on the bow, you never have to go far on deck to pin on some fresh bait. Her creature comforts include: a full galley, spacious salon, full entertainment system, two heads, hot shower, and three staterooms.  She sleeps six passengers and one crewmember in seven separate berths.  In the spring of 2006 the Hi-Count was re-fitted with a solid plywood-fiberglass deck in the cockpit.  The leaky teak, lift-out hatches were replaced with aluminum Freeman hatches.  She was also given a face-lift with fresh paint to her cabin.
