Junior Outdoorsman

Jr. Captain Luke Helfenbein is an avid fisherman along the Atlantic Coast and Chesapeake waters.  Born and raised on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Luke has been fishing since early childhood.  With a passion for tight lines and screaming reels, he has traveled all over in search of that catch of a lifetime.  The sport of fishing has taken him to Cabo San Lucas, landing roosterfish on spinning tackle to 150lb striped marlin on 40lb drag reels.  It has brought him to the windy island of Aruba, landing countless wahoo, large mahi to a variety of reef dwellers.  In Florida, Luke has battled the species of snook, kingfish and blackfin tuna all on light spinning tackle.  But out of it all, his passion remains being a part of Team Eastbound, fishing out of his home state of Maryland landing countless large yellowfin tuna, mahi, tilefish and most recently the hunt for his first swordfish.  Locally along the Chesapeake waters, you will find Luke aboard a Sportsman 252 or Feelfree kayak fishing the striper run on top water, jigging and trolling.  Whatever the species might be, wherever they may be hiding, Luke has either tried for it or has put it in his plans to do so very soon.
