Captain Lukas is a lifelong fisherman and waterman spending his youth dedicated to all the activities the Atlantic Ocean provides in fishing, surfing, shrimping, diving, sailing, and much more, but more specifically, the Space Coast beaches, rivers, lagoons, and inlets that provide an extravagant opportunity to perfect one’s skills in a diversified setting. Captain Lukas’ understanding of the ocean has translated to fisheries around the world. Possessing a 50-ton United States Coast Guard captain’s license, he spends the summer season capitalizing on the plethora of species that merge into the abundant Alaskan waterways, including monster halibut, king salmon, and lingcod by chartering up to six passengers on 25-foot aluminum fishing vessels out to the deep sea to fish for their trophy catch. Sensing the pulse of the ever-changing seasonal swing, the fall signals a change in migrations. It’s back to Florida’s Space Coast to follow the annual fall mullet run from Cocoa Beach to Sebastian Inlet and surf fishing everywhere in-between. Late summer through fall, Captain Lukas and clients stalk the oceans edge enticing giant snook, redfish, and flounder on live bait and artificial lure. The pompano migrate along Florida’s central east coast from late fall through spring along with black drum, redfish, mackerel, and bluefish. With each season, Captain Lukas uses a match-the-hatch system by mimicking the natural patterns of bait the ocean provides with each swing of the temperature and tide.
