Captain Luke Tippett is the owner and operator of TopWater Guide Co. Captain Luke grew up on the waters of Eastern North Carolina fishing the coastal bays and marshes. With a primary focus on Red Drum, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Striper, he understands the local populations and area. At a young age, the love of fishing was instilled in Captain Luke by his father and grandfather. As his passion for inshore fishing grew, he decided to begin a new venture, Topwater Guide Co. Chartering has further allowed Captain Luke to share his knowledge and passion with friends and clients alike.
