Captain
Forrest Luking

Member since May 2018 Homer, United States
Background
Fishing has been a part of Capt. Forrest's life ever since he could walk. He grew up near the coast of North Carolina but everything changed after his father took him to Alaska, where he had a fishing adventure of a lifetime. After that trip, Capt. Forrest decided to pursue his passion and moved here with the intention to become a professional angler. At first, he worked for other outfitters during summer and did commercial crabbing during winter. Seven years later, he has his own charter and loves to share his knowledge with other people.
