Captain Ryan Lutes

Captain Ryan Lutes brings over ten years of experience of fishing on some of the finest boats in Hawaii. Born and raised in Newport Beach, CA, Ryan’s dream was to fish with the legendary captains in the epic waters of Kona, Hawaii. He received his captain license license at 18 years of age, and has experience in commercial fishing, sportfishing, bottom fishing, and major fishing tournaments.

“Started at the bottom and learned from some of the best skippers and deckhands in the world, finally working my way up to the Captain of The Tropical Sun.”

–Captain Lutes
