About Me

Aloha. My name is Jaren Luke and I am a 26 year old tournament angler from Oahu, Hawaii. 

I specialize in many types of fishing styles such as shoreline fishing/surfcasting, kayak fishing, big-game trolling, and spearfishing. I fish all year round and alter my methods of fishing according to the time of year and species of fish that are biting. 

I participate many tournaments every year and am known for my consistency in placing amongst the top finishers. I really love the sport of fishing and live it everyday. I can talk about fishing all day and love to share my knowledge and techniques with new anglers. I am featured regularly on one of Hawaii's favorite fishing shows, Hawaii Goes Fishing, in the tackle tips segment. Follow me on Instagram to see my latest catch using Bullbuster Braid, Mono, Or Fluorocarbon! @jarentee
