He began at the bottom and worked his way up so he’s knows every facet of the fishing industry. As a young crew member he worked the deck for many of the regular Cairns Heavy Tackle captains such as Jim Dalling, Greg Edwards, Terry Parker and Bill Billson. His eye for detail, strong work ethic and enthusiasm enabled Luke to lay the foundation for his already successful career as one of the youngest captains at the time, getting his first charge at the ripe old age of 21 – leading the next generation of successful skippers to fish the Great Barrier Reef.
Since then, Luke’s gamefishing resume includes being at the helm of The Warrigal, Reef Hunter, Reel Easy, Assegai and now 10 years on two KEKOAs (starting with the KEKOA 47 in 2006 and the current KEKOA in 2010).
2016 marked his 30th anniversary on the reef – 30 years of experience for your fishing adventure!
Luke loves all things fishing and is an expert angler in his own right.
