About the Operation

The Hi-Count is owned and operated by David Wolfson, a USCG licensed 100-ton captain since 1993.  David�s experienced and professional crew offers unparalleled safety and customer service.

About the Captain
David�s desire to be a fisherman began at an early age.  At 14 years old, he went to work for Don Brockman aboard the Freelance.  He then became a deckhand for Frank LoPreste on the Royal Polaris, and went on to operate as second captain aboard the Royal Star for Tim Ekstrom.  At age 22, he ran his first 10-day trip and had an outstanding catch.  In the spring of 2000, David acquired the HI-COUNT and brought a new and aggressive 6-pack operation to Southern California.  As you can see, David has worked for the �best� operations on the coast.  He has fished everywhere from the Channel Islands for Rockcod all the way down to Clipperton for Giant Yellowfin Tuna.

About the Boat
The HI-COUNT is a custom-built 44� Pacifica sportfisher that was designed by fisherman for fisherman.  Twin 671 TI Detroit Diesel engines produce a top speed of 18 knots.  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 are awesome: she sports a full galley, a spacious salon, an entertainment system, two heads, a shower, and three staterooms.  She sleeps six passengers and one crewmember in seven separate berths.
