Luke’s charter fishing career has spanned over 3 decades since starting as a crewman on a marlin fishing charter boat in Townsville and fishing the Cairns giant black marlin season. He is now a veteran of 34 marlin seasons being full time in the industry ever since.
While Luke’s first loves remain marlin and barramundi – two iconic Australian species known for their visual out of water displays – he is adept at all types of fishing. Luke Fallon Sport & Game Fishing has now been based on the Fraser Coast since 2018 and offers a variety of fishing options to local and visiting anglers from all over the country and world!
He is a highly competent angler in his own right, but as a skipper and guide, his more than 100 days on the water each year, and many years experience guiding, are to the immense benefit of his charter clients!
Luke has been involved in the charter fishing industry full time for 34 years.
Luke is also well known in Australian marlin fishing circles as the skipper of the charter boat KEKOA for the past 16 years. On KEKOA he has previously spent 9 years operating KEKOA as a mothership and guiding barra fishing charters in the Gulf of Carpentaria.
Throughout the years he has operated sport & game fishing charters in several hotspots along the Australian east coast including, Cairns, Townsville, Gold Coast, Port Stephens, Sydney and now the Fraser Coast since 2018.
Luke is a Master V, MED I and holds a current Senior First Aid Certificate.
