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.
